Mordecai is One!

Took some photos for my friends and their sweet boy again!  I asked if I could take them in and around their home because I love seeing families captured in their own space doing their day to day thing.  I am glad we did it this way.  The best was seeing happy little Mordecai waking up from his nap!  Isn't that crib awesome?  His Great-Grandpa made it!

I am absolutely in love...

with my 85mm 1.8 lens...Is that okay?  It is beautiful and everything yummy.  Smooth, creamy, sharp.  I think I want to marry it. I have only got to use it a couple times because it is too long for inside the house on my crop frame camera.  It was warm one day this month and I busted it out while Ben and Levi and Daisy played in the melting ice/snow.  Oh, I am absolutely in love with those three as well :)

Berry Milk Pops

Levi and I made these milk pops a couple weeks ago.  They were okay.  I do not think Levi really understands how to eat a Popsicle :)

Berry White Ice Pops  (from Taste of Home)
Whisk together 1 3/4 cups whole milk, I Tbsp. honey, and 1/4 Tsp. vanilla extract.  Place frozen berries (or other fruit) in Popsicle molds or small paper cups.  Pour milk mixture over berries and freeze 4-6 hours.

Stamp Art

I finished a project i have been meaning to do since last summer.  We spent a day in New Buffalo, Michigan with my in-laws last summer, and my mother-in-law and I were inspired by a set of framed stamps in a very cool, but very expensive store.  My father-in-law has a huuuge collection of stamps from all over the world.  He said we could have a few :)  Anyways, this is what I did with mine.  I organized by region of the world.  Cannot wait to put it up in the new house!

Levi has been a sick little guy this week.  He had a fever over the weekend, and was sad. 

Night of the Big Snow

Forcing my son to play in the snow because I am an awesome mom  He was still feeling icky so did not enjoy it much...especially after taking off his glove and sticking his bare hand in the snow :(

This is the snow fort I made lol....A fort for Han Solo.  I promise it would have been better if Levi was happy.
