For the Grannies....

Here's a little sneak peek from Mr. Squirmy Wormy's & Tanner Tot's photo sessions. Hopefully, it will give their Grannies a little satisfaction until I can complete my editing. I'm working "overtime" on this batch of babes because I do owe the Grannies a little something. After all, they did help raise my kiddos (they taught my first DD how to walk!) and they were "serrogate" Grannies to my girls until they got grandkids of their very own to spoil.

So, never fear, Grannies! I'm working hard & will get those beautiful boys on the world wide web real soon!

Baby Blues & Baby Bro

As I did some "almost-spring cleaning" on my photo files, I came across several pictures that I didn't have an opportunity to share earlier.

Meet Miss K and her beautiful baby blue eyes:

Isn't she sweet?
And here's her equally cute lil' bro, Mr. K:

And a couple more....

My Valentine

First of all, I must mention that I'm not really into the whole Valentine's Day hype. I'd rather get a nice gift on any regular ol' day rather than a day when society forces your sweetheart to show affection.

That being said, I can't deny that I "heart" my husband. And if he were to pass me a carefully folded note that said "Will you go with me, YES or NO," I would certainly still say "YES," even if I had no idea where we were going. {lol}

Here's a recent snapshot (special thanks to the talents of "Mimmy") taken after all the Christmas celebrations. As you can tell, we were already looking forward to Valentine's Day. :)

Come Fly Away With Me

When I was a little girl, I had aspirations of becoming an Airforce pilot before moving on to astronaut training with NASA. Of course, this was before I knew that you had to a great mathmatician. Once I discovered that little fact, my dreams were crushed and I moved on to other ambitions.

But luckily for me, my dad IS a great mathmatician and adventure seeker, so he became the pilot in our family.

Flying in a small private plane is much different than your average commercial flights. First of all, there's no peanuts (unless you bring your own), no bathrooms, and really very little space at all. But, you do get to fly at lower altitudes which means you get to actually see much of the country that you are flying over. It really is interesting to see things from above. It helps you gain perspective on just how LARGE this earth is and how little and insignificant our big man-made things can be in the grand scheme of things.

We recently made a quick weekend get-away to my parents and I took some time to document the flying experience. Ladies & Gentlemen, please buckle your safety belts....

Setting off on our adventure...

Told ya small planes were, well...SMALL!

Our fearless leader pilot (a.k.a. my dad)...

...his co-pilot...

...and his two "backseat drivers."

{Yes, that is me. Let me take a moment to give you a quick photography lesson: avoid taking close-ups in small spaces. Your head will look like the size and shape of a melon! Special thanks to the co-pilot for this *special* picture-lol!}

Meet the plane mascot, "Ace!"

And I think my camera has too many buttons! LOL!

"Check out the scenery down there!"

Crop fields always look like large circles from above if they have an irrigation system.

There's a frozen lake, too!

The co-pilot would REALLY like to do a little steering, but is too afraid to try any more than a fingertip steer (it was on auto-pilot, anyway!)


(It really is hard taking pictures from the back seat!)

Time to put the ol' girl to bed. The whole crew has to work together (including Mom who came to serve as our airport "shuttle service.")

Thanks for the adventure!
