Christmas Photo

I'm a poor photographer with little patience so typically the pictures are monstrous even when the subjects are perfect.

Trying to get a decent picture is not easy especially when the kids are in a bad mood. Or a good mood. Or a silly mood. Really any mood they are in hampers any effort I put into trying to get one decent picture.

The dog doesn't help matters, although she probably behaved the best.

Deciding to exclude the cats from this joyous occasion was a wise decision.

Even the dog was blinking in this one.

Blue Soccer

Here are a few pictures of Jonah playing soccer.

They wear blue pregame then change into their jerseys for the games.

Here is a pregame shot.

Here is one of Jonah doing some kind of move.

He typically plays right wing.

The pressure is on, you better make a move!

Outdoor season is over for now. They start indoor next week. Can't wait as indoor is so much more exciting. It's faster, they get to take more shots and really anyone can win. Most parents go ballistic, me being one of them.

Field Trip

The other day we went on a field trip to learn about the history of our lovely city.

There were wagons, Indians and a big Round Rock!

This is why people don't like watching Freya play at the park

Afternoon Hike

Our family relishes a good hike in nature.

As much as we loved the huge trees, mountains and water falls in Oregon, Texas can be really pretty.

If you look, you will find pockets of beauty.

Mermaid Islands

I read about this great Mermaid Island made of play dough.

It looked like such a great idea after about four batches of play dough were made, the girls had a blast.

They decided to make their own Islands instead of one huge one. Such fun!
