It's LEAP day!

I feel like I should be doing something special today seeing as this day only comes once every four years, but I don't know what to do. I want to take my camera outdoors but K-bug seems to be on day two of her napping strike and it's chilly outside-excuses excuses-so maybe later. We are going bowling tonight and I'll probably take my Nikon with me just for some fun. (do you get a sense of boredom in my typing today?)

Update: Kbug is napping and has been and I went outside and brought you back a couple of pictures.

The neighbors have horses and I went into the woods for this picture:

All caught up now

Okay so there a million entries listed in Feburary and that's because I just started this blog but I wanted to blog everything that I had still in my picture files (there's a lot more to pull of off cds but I'll save some of that for March). So please browse through and leave comments if you would like.
Thanks for visiting my blog :)

Winterplace, WV

Feb 23-Hubby, me, and the B.'s took off to WV for some snow adventure. We got up at the crack of dawn, actually the sun was still sleeping, and hit the road. By the time we made it to the mountains the sun was starting to rise and it was beautiful dipping into the fog filled valleys.

The only thing we did was snow tube and I didn't have my Nikon with me (didn't want to break it) and of course silly me didn't check the batteries in my point and shoot so this is really the only other picture I got that was worth anything and of course I played around with it.

The B.'s

Needless to say it wasn't the best of times and it wasn't the worst of times but I speak for myself only when I say this but if I'm riding 3 hours in a car it better be to sit my booty down in a chair in front of the ocean soaking in the warm sunshine! I'm such a beach person!

February Random

Ladies and gentlemen we have some blooms! (SPRING is coming!)

And unbeatable Carolina blue sky

different day

A typical day

I live on a farm in the middle of nowhere but it is the life I live :) We have cows-why-I'm still not 100% sure. But I've become kind of fond of the the big animals and K-bug is in love with them. We have one who is a complete pet but she was too busy in the barn hogging up all the feed so she's not in any of the pictures. Oh, and her name is Big Red-real original. But next to our daughter the tractor is next in line for his pride and joy.

The one larger tan cow-that's Brownie-we've had her since she was a calf. She was bottle fed by us and is a complete snob and an excellent escape artist!

Clean up time!

This was across from the cow pasture where K-bug was running free!

Here's hubby working hard and while it looks out of focus that's because the focus was on the sparks.

Little Man's First Photo Shoot

I was completely honored to be able to do my nephews first photos and was overall pleased on how they turned out. He was about three weeks old here.

Snow and Ice in NC!

It wasn't much but every little bit in the South counts!

Little Man at Home

I went for my first visit since Little Man came home and just snapped a few pictures here and there, not looking for anything great but did come back with some decent ones.

If he looks a little yellow, that's because he was, he had some jaundice.

This picture I just absolutly love. It's my step grandma and Little Man...

He's Here!

Okay so I got a little out of order but on January 9, 2008 my nephew "Little Man" made his debut! He weighed in at a hefty 7 lbs. 10 oz. and was 20.5 inches. My camera and I got to go behind the scenes of his first bath and his hearing test.

Look at the head of hair this child is blessed with! If K-bug would have had that much hair she would have been wearing hairbows on day one!

A Moment Like This....

January 25, 2008 is a night I'll never forget! I have been wanting to see Reba since I was a little girl and at 23 years old I finally did! It was one of the best shows I have ever been to (and I've been to A LOT!). We were on the floor third row from the back so my pictures aren't that great but my memories are priceless!

Far from being a great picture but here's my partner in crime Holly B (right) and me!

Baby on the way

My SIL was pregnant with her first, and only so far, baby boy and I convinced her to let me do some maternity pictures and she did wonderful! She had the baby glow and was a beautiful mommy-to-be!

Carolina Panthers VS. San Fransisco 49ers (Dec. 2007)

This was my first pro sporting event and I had a blast! Of course I had to ask questions the whole time but I celebrated with the best of them when our guys FINALLY won a home game :)

2007's Christmas Card

This is the cover of this years Christmas card. Everyone is always commenting on how K-bug looks like Cindy-loo-who from the Grinch and my dad being the strange one he is has a life size Christmas grinch so we put two and two together and came out with this card...

November Random

Getting down to what really matters...having a best friend.

Tiny Dancer

Fur Baby Daisy

Lambeth Shoot

My friend Abby asked me to take some family pictures for her daughters first birthday and I have to say they are one beautiful family!

Halloween! (2007)

K-bug was (gasp!) a ladybug for her party at daycare

and a moo-cow for "trick-or-treating" (aka visiting family)

Lexington BBQ Festival (Oct. 2007)

Another local yearly event where we all gather together to eat the worlds best BBQ and vendors line the curbsides and sell their crafts and what-nots. Again this is not really my thing but there was going to be a celebrity there so being all paprazzi-ish my camera, the stroller, and Holly B. ventured out to catch a glimpse of Mrs. Garth Brooks (aka Trisha Yearwood).

Success was mine...

I also captured another celebrity, county music newcomer Danielle Peck...

Remind me and I'll dig out and post some other close encounters with the famous kind.

Gorgeous! (Oct. 2007)

My friend Holly B. and her cousin Lindsey are just plain beautiful girls and thise was my first time photographing them. It was kind of chilly outside, as it was getting dark (which also limited my natural light), so we didn't do as much as I would have liked too. But once the weather gets warmer you'll see a lot more of these two!
