The Cage.

(^the view from our bedroom window^)

(^The view from the back door^)

We've been meaning to put up a chain link fence since before we moved in FOUR years ago...Archer took a little field trip that nearly scared me to death, and viola....one week later we have a fence. He can open the doors, so it was definitely time, since back there on the right is a pond.


I made these pictures with fabric and frames from Ikea...I love the way they turned out. Now I just need to get some throw pillows made to pull the look together :)


Cabin Fever

Elliot found...
a real life meteoroid...
Ghost presence?

cracks me up.
love me a bonfire...but I had an earache so didn't enjoy this one...just snapped some quick photos.

I love this one...will probably make a frame even.
walking the woods makes me contemplate things too.
Aren't they cute?
helping grandpa clear the roof off.
watching daddy and grandpa.
We had to keep them inside for safety reasons, so this was the next best thing.
during nap time...which never actually happened for one of them.
climbing on the wood pile.
"ZZZZZawwww!!" (as he points to the chain saw.)
Brookelyn taking Archer for a ride...and of course, letting him drive.
I wish I had time to adjust my aperature here...but he moved to fast so it's blown.
Kids :)

Up on the roof...my dad had Elliot and Brookelyn sweep the roof of the shed for him, and the little boys wanted to go up too, so we had to snap a photo.


Go HERE for images from last weeks 5 Minute Photo Shoots!


I love my Grandpa...
and I love
pictures of him...
with my boys.
My Grandma is a sweetie...this is her with my niece, Anya.
we had a special breakfast on an ordinary day.
It was special because they were there.


A day in the life of a little boy...

Trae chose his outfit the other day...the shirt is one that is to small even for Archer.
They play in the same dirt hole at the bottom of the deck stairs almost all day.

The sun was so bright :)
Archer found this hat and brought it to me to put it on. I put him in front of the mirror, where he stood for awhile making faces at himself and laughing at his reflection.
I'm told I stood at the mirror watching myself cry a lot...
He apparently discovered the mirror before...as there are some offending smears right at his height. Don't judge, I'm out of windex and these are candid photos. It's either the shot with smears, or no shot at all.
Jason's Grandma told us the other day that Archer looks like Grandpa Steve when he was a little boy...she had a profile drawing of him and 2 of his brothers she showed us...and Archer looks a lot like that picture here :)
A mirror is kind of awesome for reflecting soft light.

See...Archer is in the hole at the bottom of the stairs...Trae needed help securing his tape measure on hos waistband.
This makes me laugh...I have no idea.

A little mud never hurt anyone...
LOVE the tongue...and he looks like his big sister in this photo.
After we cleaned him up a little...it's hard work being a little boy.
But even after sleeping for several hours...
he's still baby enough to want to snuggle with him momma.

And this little story:

Trae and Archer were playing by the swing set, which I can see out the window. I had the windows open, and I could see Archer sitting at the top of the slide, and Trae trying to coax him to go down. He was saying "It's okay buddy...go down!" Archer just gave a little wail...and the Trae said "one second, I go get mom to hewp ya!" As he ran to the house...he was saying "it's okay Achaa...I get momma to hewp ya!" He came in with his face serious as can be and said "MOM!! Achaa need hewp, him scawwed! Huwwy!" So I grabbed shoes and he ran ahead of me and said "Momma's commin' buddy, it's okay!"
