running at the sunflower field

You can not see but he had hold of the iPhone and did not care to be at the sunflower field.

Then I told him he could run and he got all happy.
Running is his favorite thing to do.

He must bend over for the "get ready, set, go".
He is too cute.
Off he goes.

He ran back and forth over and over.

He makes me happy!

Then he got tired.
He does this when he wants to go home.
Or when he wants out of doing something.
Or from answering a question.
Hand goes on head and he says, "I'm sick", or "head hurts", and "go home".

So home we went. :)

Hope your Wednesday was great xo

after putting on the wings.
He is just an angle to me.

I thought these were cute.
Noah thought they were broken. lol

Happy Tuesday xoxo

Noah finally got a hair cut.
Took me a few days to get him to sit for some photos.
I'm so happy he finally let me snap some photos.
His smile just makes me so happy :)

Happy Monday xoxo

Happy Fall

Noah and I went to Kroger yesterday and we took some photos.
I wanted him to sit on the huge pumpkins they had but he didn't want too. :)
I look forward to fall this year to see and enjoy all the fall colors and weather.
It has been 7 years since we spent our last fall in Pennsylvania.
I loved fall so much there, it was my favorite season.

Lots of rain here today.
We will just spend the day inside.
Noah dancing and singing and me taking photos.
We are having fun so far :)

Happy Friday and Happy Fall xoxo

They make me happy :)

Happy Wednesday everyone xoxo

Taken when we went on a field trip to the sunflower fields last week.
He wouldn't pose near the flowers but rather run up and down the lane.
I couldn't be upset, it made him so happy and I love to see him happy.
He ran and ran till he was all tired out lol.
I love this boy to the moon and back!

Happy Monday xoxo

twenty three years ago

for Joel

Joel and I met 23 years ago today.
I can hardly remember him not in my life.
He is my best friend.
My perfect husband.
A wonderful Dad.
A good and honest man.
He keeps me laughing after all these years.
He is the wind beneath my wings...

Happy Friday xoxo

busy week

My sweet Noah. Taken Monday.

We have been busy this week.
We drove to look for sunflower fields on Monday.
Noah didn't want to get out of the car at first but finally did and then had fun running :)

Yesterday, we went to the Columbus Zoo.
It was a beautiful day.
We got a little lost and by the time we got there we had two hours to run through and see as much we could.
I'm was shocked they closed so early. I'm pretty sure the San Antonio Zoo closes much later?
Anyway, we had fun. Noah had been asking to go for days and wanted to see monkeys.
They are the last things we found before closing :)

We met another family with a sweet boy who also has ds.
love when that happens :)

We found a Jason's Deli to eat dinner at and then we found a Whole Foods.
We miss having both of these places near to us...sigh.
I think we got home around 8 pm?

Happy Wednesday xoxo

Happy Monday

It was a nice weekend. Lots of sun and great weather.
We are dog sitting Harley again.
My sister's dog. He is so good.
I took him a bath yesterday and he was not too happy.
We enjoy having him with us.

Took this when we got home from Mass on Saturday.
Had to take advantage of the long shadow with sweet Harley by my side.

Hope  everyone has a wonderful week.
Happy Monday xoxo

Happy Friday

 Printed some new photos of Noah. Now I need to buy frames. For now they look good on the line.

 I splurged and bought myself a Fuji instax camera a few weeks ago. I'm in love!
Now I wish I had my old Polaroid from when I was a kid!
I am on the hunt for a sweet Polaroid that works!
Just some fun photos I took the last few weeks.
Summer fun, Noah getting love from his cousins and my niece and nephew.
I just ordered more film and it is on its way :)
I look a lettering class.
You can check it out here
I have been buying new pens and finally using my note books and journals.
I love stationary!
I hope to get better at my lettering style! I need to practice, practice!

We are dog sitting again but this time for over a week.
Have a great weekend!
Happy Friday xoxo

the last few days

Friday we went to eat pizza at our favorite place.
Only they were busy and it would be an hour wait.
we were hungry so we left and walked the little town looking for food.
everything was closed. lol
We also dog sat Harley my sisters dog for the weekend.
It rained a lot and the weather got really cool.
I finally unpacked Noah's room. Now to sort and organize it!
Monday we drove into the city of Dayton.
We just drove around and then found a place to eat dinner.
I wore my new Mary Jane's from Clark's :)
Joel had off both Monday and Tuesday.
We drove to Cincinnati yesterday to look for shoes for Joel.
He found nothing but I got a pair and Noah got two pair :)
Again, lots of rain and cool weather...fall is here.

Joel is back to work today.
Noah and I just hanging out having fun and keeping warm.

Happy Wednesday xoxo

some iphoneography

over the moon for you

fly me to the moon

come fly with me

some photos I took with my iPhone last month.
I really love what the little iPhone can do
and how creative you can be with it. :)
It opens up a new world, so fast and easy and right in your hands.

Lots of rain here today.

Happy Friday - pink daisy

took some photos of my one and only daisy bloom.
I used my photojojo macro lens for iPhone
and the hipstamatic app to take the photos.
love the pink color that came out :)

We have nothing planned for the long holiday weekend.
We were going to Niagara Falls but that got canceled.
I guess I should finish unpacking this house? lol

Happy Friday xoxo

summer's end

The pool closes on Monday.
We have enjoyed the pool this summer so much.
We went yesterday and the water was so cold.
Only one other family was there besides the swim team.
Noah didn't care. He loved every minute of it.
dancing, jumping, making friends and laughing.
It is going to be hot the next few days so we will be going a few more times :)
So sad to see summer end.
I do love fall though :)

Happy Thursday and Happy September xoxo
