Trick or Treat.

Jen Pumpkin head

Jill Punkin' head.
I can not believe the costumes the monkey's Daddy made them this year!!
He paper mached them pumkin heads, they look incredible!!

In this photo you can see how he supported and distributed the weight so they wouldn't be too heavy on their little heads and shoulders. There is a bike helmet inside and some straps for their shoulders.

Here is the paper mache product before we started the painting process. We painted them black first, the a white primer coat, from there we brushed green for shading, a burnt orange for base colour and a yellow for highlighting. Then we varnished them for waterproofing.
The end results are amazing..
Trick or Treat everyone, have fun and stay safe..

Black and White Wednesday

If love is a rose, I have found my bouquet."
Author unknown

Every year we go and take a few photo for a Daddy's Day card, we go to the same spot, a rose garden near us. It's beauty and serenity never ceases to amaze me. It inspires me as it unfolds the perfect backdrop to capture my girls beauty.

I am one proud Mommy....

Black and white Wednesday

This is my boy Charlie.
He's a good cuddler, loves peanut butter in his Kong and points at the backyard birds. He thinks he's a lap dog although he weighs about 65 pounds.
This photo has just been used in a sporting dog web page, not bragging(not much, LOL) or anything but we thinks he's pretty handsome, wink...
To see some fantastic Black and white shots got to The Long Road to China, add your fave too!!

Slow down, don't grow so fast.

Today is B&W Wednesday over at The Long Road to China, click on over and check out some fantastic shots and add your favourite.
As I look at some of the pictures I've taken of the monkeys lately I can hardly wrap my head(and my heart) at just how much they are growing. I sometimes wish I could stop the clock, slow them down, then there are the moments I can hardly wait to see the bloom and blossom. To see what wonderful women, Mother and wives I know they'll be.
For know my sweet girls, slow down, don't grow so fast...

Black and White Wednesdays.

Black and White Wednesday is here again, go to The Long Road to China and play along!
This is Frosty and friend, last year we purchased a Frosty the Snowman LED light kit. It is the cutest, build the snowman push in the LED light kit. It is battery operated and after a couple of hours shuts itself off, every Xmas Eve(weather permitting) we build Santa a friend, it is magical to see him lighting up the way for Saint Nick.

Just wanted to thank everyone for their wonderful well wishes for my Dad, he is continuing to recover, again, thanks it means so much.....

My Dad...

Last Sunday shook my safe little world as I once knew it.
My Dad and my Uncle went to a country store about ten minutes from his home. He went to get out of the car and an elderly lady was backing up her car, instead of braking she accelerated her vehicle pinning my Dad.He was stuck between her car and the vehicle he was a passenger in.
This lady just kept accelerating and backing up, my Uncle and a passerby got her out of her car and rushed to my Dad's side.
He was then rushed to hospital, as some of you might know my Father was a Paramedic for 43 years and just recently retired. To be a patient was quite different for him.
He sustained very serious injuries to his legs, the left being the worst, he had some facial lacerations.
I was not prepared to see my Dad in the state he was in, vulnerable, full of pain, looking frail, bruised and cut up. I held it together until I left his side, I fell into pieces.
We are waiting to hear when he will have surgery on his left leg, they have already told us even after they repair it,it will never be the same.
This is hard.
My Dad was a very vital, active, young 65, he was full of life. My hope is this will not change his lifestyle.
I just wish I could trade places with him, so hard to see my hero in pain.......

Someday her Prince will come....

Black and White Wednesdays are so much fun, go to The Long Road to China to play along!
We have a pond close to our home, every Spring we go frog hunting, the girls net them and release them.
This day was so sweet as Jillian talked to her frog and kissed it, telling it she would come back and visit it someday.
Someday her Prince will come..

Black and White Wednesdays.

The flight home, I love how the natural lighting from the windows shone softly on my baby girl's face.
This was taken this last Summer, I can't believe we just celebrated our fourth "Gotcha Day" with baby girl.
Jilly-bean is the light of my life, her smile could melt a glacier, her laugh is contagious and she has such a beautiful little soul.

For more beautiful B&W shots or to add your own go to visit this wonderful lady's site, The Long Road to China.
