Simple Joys

Who knew soapy water and a little plastic wand could bring so much joy!

I just love photographing Elijah when he's blowing bubbles! He gives me so many fun faces to try and capture. He really gets into it and his face just reflects his joy.

These were taken yesterday while it was sunny. A few minuets later is was raining... and then sunny again and then cloudy... it was like that all day.

I've found a new way to edit my photos. Sherri said I might enjoy PhotoScape and she was right! I just down loaded it this morning. It's free. And there is so much you can do with it. Like make these nifty little collages. They're a lot of fun to make... you might get tired of seeing them before i get tired of making them! =)

Well, Elijah is begging to make cookies and Ethan is sleeping so this would be a good time to do some baking.

Bye for now.

Thanks for following along with us as we take each day as it comes.

Beautiful pictures! I just figured out how to follow your blog, so I'll be dropping by more often now. :-) The colors are soooo pretty. I miss that beautiful spring sunlight! Hope all is well for the 4 of you. Take in a deep breath of that pretty crisp air and think of me suffocating in the humid heat over here! ;-)

Oh what darling faces he is making! My little girl crys to go blow bubbles on the front porch. She has not totally mastered the art of blowing bubbles. It is still a very messy momment that she enjoys!!

Thank you for sharing... Have fun baking!
