She's A National Champion

This little one took first place in her national karate tournament last night.  Proud doesn't describe how I feel.  Her mother sent a text message saying "Megan just took first place in nationals for fighting!  We are so excited!  She is so amazing.  We are so proud of her and her accomplishments.  She thinks and waits for the right time to bail her opponents (Her mother wrote components...but I knew what she meant...ha!  Sorry couldn't resist Seb)! Wow!" 


I am so happy to have a National Champion in the family.  Heaven knows it might be a while until the Michigan Wolverines bring one home to me. 


Congratulations Megs!!  I love you and the rest of my nieces and nephews more than is possible to explain.

Luke Too

I am a very naughty Aunt. 

Luke turned 2 years old weeks and weeks ago.

Luke is ever so shy.

Luke might substitute a smooch with a stiff arm.

Luke loves his mama and daddy.

Luke loves motorcycles and the "emets" (helmets).

Luke loves his cousin Caden so much.

Luke loves his three older sisters.

Luke has beautiful blue eyes.

Luke's crooked grin melts me every time.

Happy Easters

Luckily I have good friends who invite me over for holiday traditions warranting small gatherings. I was in charge of the Easter baskets and had a great time hiding them away to be found for an after dinner treat.  It was a great day to stop and reflect on all the best things in life.

Mister O's New Shoot

I got lucky and did some studio shooting Friday. I am anxious to finish my current project which involves turning my spare bedroom into my own little studio. I can't get it done soon enough. Click here or here to see more photos of Owen.
