She is totally ignoring my camera and wishing I would go away. ::sigh:: The life of a Mammarazzi is so difficult.

Sleeping Sebastian

I finally got one of the kids to sit still long enough to take his picture. Or maybe he just happened to fall asleep and I took advantage.


Mia helping me out with the laundry. She just may be the cutest cat ever.

Gabe reading Harry Potter with daddy. Every night they take time for at least one chapter. Gotta love daddy time.

Hidden Letters "A" or "N"?

This is the ghetto fence in my backyard... a strange mixture of wood, vinyl, bricks and wire fencing thrown together in a desperate attempt to keep the escape artists (dogs) from leaving. Yes, those are rusty nails sticking out of it. Anyone want to donate to my JoNeedsARealFence fund?

Hidden Letters "R"

He was too cute this morning.. and the only one in the house that wasn't running away from my camera.

Hidden Letters "O"

This is where my crapola camera fails me. It refused to focus completely on the key rings. Too fuzzy for my taste, but I like the effect of the photo too much to not include it. I suppose I should have dusted first...

Hidden Letters "M"

I found this letter hanging out in the playroom.

Hidden Letters "H"

Yellow is a terrible color for a wall if you like to take indoor pictures. I do like this Black/White fix... I used the Urban Snapshot setting in Photoshop Elements.

Hidden Letters "G"

The wrought iron railing from my back stairs... Obviously I need to consider re-painting it this spring.

Guilty Pleasure #3 - My Laptop

What is pink, frequently found in my bed (or at least my bedroom), was a Valentine's Day gift from my husband, and is highly addictive?


I love it/hate it, the wireless is spotty and #5 key sticks but it is my lifeline to the outside world and how I keep in touch with friends and family all over the country. It keeps me busy with Photoshop, FaceBook, Gmail and SparkPeople. If dinner is late or a child is neglected, you can bet my pink VAIO is somehow involved.

Guilty Pleasure #2 - Seb's Geotrax

No really... this is my addiction. The one set that Seb got for Christmas quickly became 3 or 4... or maybe 5... by Groundhog's Day. We have two remote control trains that I could sit and play with all day, IF Sebastian would let me. Usually he takes the controller and tells me to go away. Or even worse, he wants me to sit and watch HIM play... but not touch. Pure torture.

Guilty Pleasure #1 - My Pets

Yes... I'm guilty. I have too many animals. I've been known to plot for months, sneak them home and proclaim a new family member. I love dogs especially.. although I certainly haven't been limited to them. Over the years I've had cats, parakeets, hamsters, a guinea pig, many generations of fish, rats, rabbits and yes.. dogs. My dogs sleep with me, kiss my face, have at least 20 chew toys in the house at once and are taken to the park more than my kids. They wear coats in the winter and go to the beach with us in the summer. They are spoiled rotten and I wouldn't have it any other way.

Treasures #4 - My Children

I cheated on this one.The picture was taken in December,but they are my treasure all year round.

The loves of my life and one treasure I will freely give to the rest of the world. Let's hope the world appreciates them.... and isn't too scared.
