Baby Aaron, Take 3!

aaron 1 mo-2665
Aaron is one month old already, so I stopped over to take his one month pix.  He's looking like a baby now, instead of a newborn, and it's hard to believe it wasn't even his due date yet.

I took some family pictures this time...

And some father-son shots.  I loved how the colors balanced out in these pix!

Go Eddie, Go!

edward-calvin track-2847
John & I went to the indoor track meet at Calvin College this past weekend to see Edward run the Mile.  He has been running on the indoor track team this past winter and will be running track this spring for Calvin.  Well, it seems like just yesterday that I was taking his high school track pictures and now, here he is a SENIOR in college!  Fleeting.

The thing about running the mile in an indoor track is you get to see them run by 8 times!  I have no excuses then for not be able to get a good photo. Of him.

Geez, if you can't tell by the look on his face, I will just tell you he got a personal record of 4:49. Not bad, Eddie.

Self-Portrait With Cat

Leo actually liked this!  He heard the beep*beep*beep of the self timer and with my head next to his, he started to purr.

Good Night?


“I get up. I walk. I fall down. Meanwhile, I keep dancing.”
― Daniel Hillel

Truly, I did not realize that the tulips would drink all of the water IN ONE DAY!!! Okay, maybe it was a couple of days, but still.

Good Morning


21 Yet this I call to mind
   and therefore I have hope:
 22 Because of the LORD’s great love we are not consumed,
   for his compassions never fail.
23 They are new every morning;
   great is your faithfulness.
24 I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion;
   therefore I will wait for him.”
 25 The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him,
   to the one who seeks him;
26 it is good to wait quietly
   for the salvation of the LORD.

Lamentations 3:21-26

Love Thursday

This past week, John asked me what I wanted for Valentine's Day.  Aw, you don't have to get me anything, I said.  Well, on second thought, some pink tulips would be nice.

But then, he saw some yellow roses he just couldn't pass up.

So they are sitting in lovethursdayharmony on our table, bringing us a much needed splash of color!

Baby Baby

I went to my friend Allison's house last week and saw the baby again!  I took a lot of pix, but the one above is probably my favorite.

Polar Bear?

Maria jumped in the freezing temps of the Sem pond at Calvin College for the second year in a row last Friday at Calvin College and I found a photo online of her!  She's in the red jump suit.  You go, girl!

The Fun Part of the Homecoming Dance

Bridget went to the Homecoming dance this past weekend at South Christian High School.  She told me the best part of the evening is actually the pictures and dinner beforehand!  What great friends she has.

The Gray and Brown Art of Catting Around

Leo is looking toward the slider to get out.

Now he sees my camera.  He is purring.

I let him around me because he really wants out.

He gets out and shows me how to cat around.

Then stops for one more pose...
