I've been trying to get a good swing photo. It's a challenge! Yesterday I took what I think might be my favorite so far.

But here is a secret: I actually used photo shop to merge two disappointing images.

Can you tell?

The Sniffle

The Sniffle
by Ogden Nash
In spite of her sniffle
Isabel's chiffle.
Some girls with a sniffle
Would be weepy and tiffle;
They would look awful,
Like a rained-on waffle,
But Isabel's chiffle
In spite of her sniffle.
Her nose is more red
With a cold in her head,
But then, to be sure,
Her eyes are bluer.
Some girls with a snuffle,
Their tempers are uffle.
But when Isabel's snivelly
She's snivelly civilly,
And when she's snuffly
She's perfectly luffly.

A Weekend to Remember

Last weekend I had a visit from my sister, who happens to be the lovely lady at Simplicity! It was wonderful and busy, full of laughter and good times... it was over much too soon. One morning we went to the city square for some photography which was my first real (ish) photo shoot. I had all the advantages of working with a beautiful model but none of the stress! We both took a million photos and goofed off like moms without their kids. Here are some of my favorites:
And when we came home, the house was quiet because my husband had put the kids down for naps and he cooked a delicious meal for us, with chocolate cake at the end. Sweet! Our husbands (being super heroes) took care of everything and I'm so thankful and happy that I got to spend quality time with my big sis...

let's do it again!
