Making some changes

I really was planning on keeping this blog going. I have been here for a few years now. I recently started a blog for my photography and I think the best thing to do is to combine my two blogs. Sooooooo....with that being said please make note of my new blog address! You can now find me at . Hope to see you all there!

How did I not notice?

The boy and I went for a walk yesterday to see what kind of cool old buildings were in our neighborhood. I even took several photos of him. I still did not notice. Do you see it? I have noticed that his hair was all over the house. I even said to Brian this morning that I thought the boy was pulling his hair out. He wasn't. I asked him why there were a few strands of hair in front of the computer and he came clean. He had given himself a haircut! Of course we discussed why that just isnt a good idea! ;)

I have wanted to give photography more attention than just the occasional photos of my own kids. This is a pretty big step for me as it is sometimes hard for me to put myself out there, but I am feeling good about it. I have the support of my friends and family and that means the world to me! With that said, please check me out and bare with me as I learn how to navigate things over there on typepad!
Oh and one more thing.....this family blog of mine is still going to be here so don't run off!;)

They Will Not Forget

While we were dealing with an unpleasent situation of our own this week I was reminded that as bad as ours seemed others were dealing with worse. One small town here in Tennessee was grieving the loss of one of its own.
He was a Marine who lost his life in Afghanistan. He was also a firefighter here in this small town. I took these photos with my phone. I did not know that morning we would be there when this town got to bring there hero home.
There were so many standing and waiting for the parade of vehicles to come down the street. They all held their flags up in silence as their hero was brought home. Please prayer for the family of this hero. He gave his life for our freedom.

Too Tired to Write Tonight...

Instead check out this sweet face. He had to have his tooth put to sleep the other day because he had sugar bugs in it and he did so well he got a cool toy from the toy box at the dentist office!
Now I am going to was a big day and tomorrow will be bigger. I will leave you with a quick publis service announcement. No person, parent or not, has the right to try and ruin a child's life. I feel so blessed to have four very special children in my home even though they can sometimes be overwhelming. I know that my sweet sister is a part of our family because it was God's plan and I am so proud of the strength she has shown today!

Flood Progress

This is what my Dads house looked like on May 4th of this year after two days of heavy rain devastated Middle Tennesse. My rockstar husband stepped up and organized the rebuild of this house. General contractors put the cost to repair the damage done from the flood at around $65,000. Brian was able to get it put back together for around $23,000! Below are a few photos post flood!

Thanks to all of the folks that helped make this happen!
