Day 119 (Day 235) Overcast


The rain has stopped, but the sun is still hiding!  Come out!

Day 118 (Day 234) Debris


Here is the scene, a day later, of the rising river.  I think this is as high as it will get now.  The rain is supposed to be done for a couple of days - I hope!  But there is a lot more debris floating by, and getting caught in the trees.  It seems to be mostly other tree branches, or other natural debris, and not trash.  Thank goodness!  People have seen picnic tables where there weren't any before, after the water recedes.  The river picks up all kinds of things when it rains like this!

Day 117 (Day 233) Raindrops keep falling

Not exactly what I wanted to do for this theme, but here it is anyway.

I take many pictures out my window of my office at work.  So here is another.  We are getting concerned about all the rain.  The river tends to flood, and it is a little too close for our comfort.

Day 115 (Day 231) Gold


Baby Girl trying on Daddy's faded gold hat.

She cracks me up!

Day 113 (Day 229) Liquid


It took lots of water to fill the hole after Daddy dumped Quik-crete in it.  The post is for our new mailbox!

Day 112 (Day 228) Furniture


This is Baby Girl's favorite piece of furniture.  It's Elmo, in case you don't recognize it.  She loves to sit here and "read"

Day 111 (Day 227) Fragile


I told you would you probably see at least one more photo of this shrub!

The flowers are now open!  Except they are soooo fragile.  The next day we were pounded with rain, and this shrub now looks so sad.  The flowers were beat up pretty good.  At least I was able to get this shot just in time.  I wish I was able to enjoy them a little longer though!

Day 110 (Day 226) Exhibit


We visited the Chicago Children's Museum at Navy Pier.  Michael was in the WaterWays Exhibit here.  I loved the lighting in this photo.  To see all the pictures from our visit that day, hop over at my family blog.

Day 109 (Day 225) Four

Four Eggs

One of the things I love about my children's daycare is all the cute little creations that make their way home.  This was made from pretzels, chocolate, four robin egg malt balls, and of course - a Peep!  How cute is that?  This one was Allie's, which I am guessing she had help with, and Michael made one too!  They were centerpieces at the kids' table on Easter Sunday.

Day 108 (Day 224) Depth of Field

Depth of Field

The last time I took a picture of this shrub, it was full of buds.  Now some of the flowers are 3/4 of the way open, while some are still closed, as seen in the background.  I am sure I will have one more post that shows them at full bloom.  This cold weather is keeping them from opening as early as they normally would!

Day 107 (Day 223) Domestic


I think I posted a similar picture to this before.  But it was before she was officially walking, and the stroller was different.  She just loves pushing her babies, or any other object that may fit in there!  I love the little wisp of hair sticking up on top of her head.  Can you say bed head?

Day 106 (Day 222) Fluffy

Fluffy Blanket

Little Miss has two of these fluffy blankets.  One is a a lot bigger that she snuggles with at night, and it stays in her crib.  This one is the smaller "travel" size of the same exact blanket.  She loves it, and it is her "lovey" that makes her smile when she sees it.

Here she is snuggling it while taking a very important call.  Sorry it is not in focus!

Day 105 (Day 221) Morning Routine

Morning Routine

Every morning, we all sit by the door and find our shoes, and get ready to go "bye-bye".  Little Miss usually picks out the shoes she wants to wear, brings them to me, and plops down on my lap.  Now she has decided that she wants to put her own shoes on.  She doesn't quite have it mastered yet, but she is getting close!

Day 103 (Day 219) Floor


The floor is nothing but glass when you are out on the Ledge on the Skydeck level of Willis (aka Sears) Tower in Chicago.  Loved. loved , loved this experience!

Day 102 (Day 218) Drink


Baby Girl loves to carry bottles around, and pretend to drink from them.  Or maybe she is hoping something comes out?  Not sure.  But here she found the empty bottle of my favorite drink, Diet Mountain Dew.  All the caffeine and none of the calories!  Yum!

Day 101 (Day 217) Curves


The sleek curves of our now SOLD Corvette!  Good-bye, Betty!  We hope someday after the kids are older, that we will replace her with a newer model!

Day 100 (Day 216) Hair


The temps reached the 80's on this day, and Little Miss hung out with daddy in the yard most of the morning.  When I took this picture, it was pretty windy, and my auto focus kept triggering on her hair as it blew.  I love that her hair is getting longer.  I am seeing hints of some curls as it grows, which are the cutest thing ever!

Day 99 (Day 215) Faces


My son just cracks me up!  This is an example of the types of faces I get from him when he sees me coming with my camera!

Day 98 (Day 214) Everyday Sights

Everyday Sights

I am not sure why I took this picture.  I must have been testing the settings on my camera, as my best guess.  But I found this image, and thought it perfectly fit the theme.  This is the everyday view while sitting in  my office.  Interesting, huh?

Day 97 (Day 213) Nuts

One of my favorite snacks.  Raw almonds.

Day 96 (Day 212) Exercise

Wii Fit, Baby!

Day 95 (Day 211) Motionless

One of the few times she was motionless.  Maybe it is that puffy coat that kept her from being able to move!

This picture was actually taken last week, and with my cell phone.  I didn't have a picture that I actually took on this exact day, and she just looked too cute not to share this one.  And yes, it was still this cold last week!  But this week is gonna get close to the 60's, so I am hoping this coat is now retired!

Day 94 (Day 210) Powerful

His instructor set up the black board for him to stomp on it, to break it in half.

And he does it!

Day 93 (Day 209) Musical


Day 92 (Day 208) Emotions


Day 91 (Day 207) Eight


Not everyone is a fan of Crocs.  But ours are well-loved and well-used!  Now even Baby Girl has a pair!

Day 90 (Day 206) Phone

Free Theme: Phone

Yep, she's got the hang of it.  We're in trouble!

Day 89 (Day 205) Roadside

I have had a pretty busy week, so I will be playing catch up!


Yes, this is roadside.  I actually stopped to take this picture, instead of trying to do it while driving this time!
