Day 243 (Day 359) Stripes

Michael earned his yellow headband!  We are so proud of him, and we are thrilled that he has an interest in taekwondo.  See the stripes on his belt?  He has to earn the 4 black stripes in order to test for each level.

Day 239 (Day 355) The Weekend

Usually on the weekends, or "Stay Home Days" as my son likes to call them, we lounge around in our jammies until mid-morning, with remnants of breakfast on our face.  Baby girl insists on having her shoes on even in her pajamas!  We have a special pair that are a size too big for her, just so she can slip them on over her footed pajamas.  She is so funny!

Who needs to go get groceries, when they keep sending me free stuff in the mail???

Day 236 (Day 352) Recreation

We had a small company picnic at our local fairgrounds.  Part of the entertainment was a little recreational harness race between employees.  That's my boss in the darker shirt, and he won!

Day 233 (Day 349) Interaction

They were all taking turns pouring water on each other.  I think the youngest did most of the dumping though!  Michael was such a good sport!

Day 231 (Day 347) High Contrast Shot

Another attempt by me to get a spiderweb picture. I boosted the contrast up 100% to make the web stand out a little more.

Day 230 (Day 346) Flat

Michael's folder for kindergarten.  It goes back and forth to school each day.  The teacher will place things in it for the parents to see, and vice versa

Day 219 (Day 335) Nightlife

Since we really don't have a nightlife, these are the only shots I get past dusk.  My nephew and his friend came over to our house so that I could take pictures for them.  They are entertainers, and try to make some coin from this art.  Eventually they want me to take more pictures to make calendars, to try to promote their buisness!

Day 216 (Day 332) Packaging

Although it is not pictured here, it always amazes me the amount of packaging that is wasted when companies mail out these freebies.  I try to recylce the parts that can be!  And I am not complaining.  I love to get me some packages in the mail - full of free stuff!

Day 215 (Day 331) Vehicle

Another one bites the dust!  We sold my SUV for a down payment on our next ride.  As you recall a few months back, we also sold our Corvette for this same purpose.  We have a nice chunk now to put down now!

Day 214 (Day 330) Itsy-Bitsy Teeny Weeny

Wow!  Extreme close up!  Well, I did it on purpose.  See those those teeny weeny freckles on MJ's nose?  They just appeared, and I love them!!!  His Daddy had freckles as a kid, but I only acquired them by sun damage, and they are not this cute.
