  • Welcome!…

    I'm Bridget.. A SAHM (stay at home mom), mother of 3, and a follower of Christ. I'm also a photographer, and passionate about life.. I hope to share that w/ you too! Life isn't always perfect, but it's perfectly created in His plan. I'm beyond thankful for God's grace and His many blessings!

MASH…

My girls are playing “MASH”… Do you remember this game as a kid?  You write down all sorts of answers to questions, then count out numbers until you have one answer remaining in each category…

K:  Where do you want to live?
Ash:  Bloomington, IL, Disney World, Wisconsin

K:  How many children do you want?
Ash:  13 or 100

K:  Who do you want to marry?
Ash:  Preston, Sam, my brother

K:  What do you want to be when you grow up?
Ash:  tog-rapher, paintist, and I hear Kaylor add, “poop duty” o_O

There were lots of giggles shared w/ each question & answer… Such silly girls!

Dying Easter Eggs, 2014…

W/ the long winter that we had, there was no WAY we were spending the afternoon inside to dye our Easter eggs… So out to the back deck we went!  The kids had a blast.  Lots of color stained fingers later, we had beautifully colored eggs 🙂  Love, love, love watching my kiddos do holiday traditions like these..


Rowen kept licking the egg “dipper” into the vinegar & water… Ick!

Even Payton enjoyed the time outdoors… I think he’s smiling! 😉

The girls dyed & then colored a couple of eggs w/ crayons.. I thought I would “melt” the crayon a little bit and put them in the microwave for 40 seconds.. Um, big mistake.  When I opened the microwave door, one of the eggs completely exploded… I almost lost an eye to an egg shell flying at rocket speed! lol
