The kids have ventured into our new backyard and are finding all sorts of treasures. The latest of which is affectionately called “Wormy” by my 7-year-old daughter. I wanted to capture a photo of her holding him since she has been a bit freaked out by bugs and other wiggly creatures. She picked him up only to drop him right away. “He’s too wiggly, Mom!” Guess that’s where the term “wiggleworm” comes from. 🙂

Here’s a few of them from today with their new pet.

He came back!

My friend came back for a short visit today. I was able to get a glimpse of his face today. 🙂

I am loving my new view! Check out what I saw today as I glanced out my back door:

I can’t remember the last time I saw a Cardinal. This was taken through my door (thus the dramatic post processing) and I must have spooked him and haven’t seen him since! He was enjoying the birdseed. I watched him as he sat there and pecked at the seeds and then spit the shells out of is mouth. What manners!

And I snapped the kids’ wagon here too. It was all wet from the recent rainfall. Processed it with a new fun program I recently found.

More to come…

Settling in…

October 2, 2008

We moved on Sunday and have been unpacking and getting settled in. It’s been so nice to have extra room, windows, and privacy.

Here’s the moving company we used. Highly recommend them for fast and efficient service. We also got to use as many boxes as needed for free.

We were greeted with fresh flowers and a card from the home owners. I thought that was so nice of them:

Here’s some photos from our new living room. I love the hardwood floors!

There’s a nice big bay window in the living room as well. Good for looking out and pondering life (lol).

The owners left their gorgeous piano here temporarily and we have had fun playing gently on it. Micah likes to sing and play at the same time. What comes out of his mouth doesn’t match what comes from the piano…darn I thought maybe we had a little genius piano player.

And finally, thanks to my little buddy for letting me take pictures of you today. 🙂

I hope to get more photos up soon so stay tuned!
