59/365 Macro Monday

Geoffrey, the formerly-26-lb-now-only-19-lb Wonder Cat!


A rare moment alone. Or, setting up for the group photo taking!


It's fun to see that the songs we sang and the dances we danced (and sometimes invented!) along with them are still in use today, as we near 20 years later...


These three photo (56, 57, 58) are from a weekend retreat for teenagers that
Jamie and I just got home from working; we were the adult Mom and Dad (scary!)
and had a wonderful time. The event is called Happening, and it's something that
was very important to both of us in high school, so helping with the next
generation of Happeners is an honor and a thrill for us.
This picture epitomizes our role for the weekend; be there, let them know we're
there if they need us, but mostly stay out of the way and let them have their experience.

I've taken a picture of Max every Thursday since he was born
(hence the name of this blog!) and today is Thursday #150!
We did a mini photoshoot to commemorate the occasion,
and I've assembled a collage of all 150 photos...

Max plays with his "flashy thing" while Mommy plays with camera
flash and slow shutter speeds!

The almost three year old is better at Angry Birds than the
actual owner of this iPad, his Nana. (Sorry, Mom! :))

The best part of Nana and Papa moving? Getting to play a room
totally free of furniture! Lots of room to run and jump!

Happy 50th day, 365ers! There's always room for one more...

Pantone® Geek. That's me! I could spend hours, just flipping
through my swatch books, admiring all the colors.

And the youth ministry crafting continues...


A moment between the bride and groom; a marriage 20 years in the making,
and a celebration befitting an incredible relationship.

A weekday off work for me means a crafty Valentine's Day gift for Nana!

Just an afternoon stop at the park for some slides and some photos!

Jamie and I are staffing a youth retreat in a couple of weeks, called Happening,
something that was very important to both of us in high school,
so we've been busily crafting away to prepare!

What else do you expect the mama of an on-the-go almost three
year old to do when he falls soundly asleep in the car?
Quickie macro photoshoot, of course!

Oh, boys 65-year old men and their toys!
My dad and his mini helicopter, zipping around the living room.

Spent this gorgeous, unseasonably warm Saturday morning at the park!
(10% of the year done!)

Give me a new haircut that I love and a fab pair of sunglasses and I can rule the world!

When I get really busy at work, I have this thing...
I spin my cell phone (yes, it's purple) on one corner, over and over.
Nervous habit, I guess.

Sweetest smelling flowers from the sweetest little boy...
not a bad start to this month celebrating love!
