Getting back into a hobby of mine!

I cannot believe that it has been a couple of months since I blogged! I have been super busy with Freelance work, and some things had to be put to the side. I am going to try to get back into blogging on a regular basis.

I have decided to get back into drawing/painting! I think it has been about 13 years since since I last painted. I was in college ... can't believe it has been that long! I decided that I need to get back into a hobby instead of trying to work all the time. Money is not everything.

I have started an oil painting that is going to be of a sunflower when it is finished.
Boy, have I missed drawing/painting!

Scooter, Zhu Zhu pets and Beth Moore

A got a scooter for her birthday from her grandparents. She loves to ride it around the downstairs. Her little snow white costume is a hand-me-down from her cousin.

A recently discovered Zhu Zhu pets when she got one as a birthday gift from a friend from church. She loved it so much that we got her a pink and white one with some birthday money. I searched all over and could not find "Jilly", so I ended up ordering it off of

I also ordered "So Long, Insecurity—you have been a bad friend to us" by Beth Moore. It is being shipped separately, and I hope to get it in a week—can't wait to read it!

A lot of Snow for Atlanta!

We finally got a bunch of snow! It was so beautiful.

I got home an hour before Bob today and called to tell him that I had a hard time turning left onto our street. Well, he did too because he ended up going through a neighbors yard—barely missing two trees!

It was the perfect kind of snow to make a snowman with—so I was a little sad that Amanda was at her grandparents this weekend. She had a lot of fun though sledding with Grandpa and building a snowman at their house.

A winter wonderland!

dusk was beautiful!

Night time was beautiful too!

Snow Day

Amanda did not have preschool today due to the icy weather.

We had fun playing, baking, coloring—and then doing those same things all over again.

We also had a fire going all day!

We all stayed warm in this freezing cold weather!

Baby it's cold outside!

The sky was beautiful this morning at 7:30 a.m., but it sure was cold outside!

Bundling Amanda up for school.

Even Sammy was cold! He likes to be outside, but not the last couple of days!

He is taking this unwanted change out on Buddy. Look at poor Buddy's face all wrinkled up!

Photographing a Wedding!

Last Wednesday, a girl that I met through church asked me if I would help her take photos at a wedding on Saturday. Of course I said yes! I have a lot to learn about photography, but it was definitely fun to get some experience. I have a new appreciation for wedding photographers—I think I was sweating bullets! Below are few photos that I took of the beautiful bride and groom.
