Look Who's on Top!

Of course they made it all the way up to the top, leaving the smaller cliffs for the teenagers and youngsters to scale. Those Nine West boots were made for climbing! And oh what a site they saw from their perch in the sky. "No wonder" one of the girls said, "it is called Garden of the Gods".

Will they make it?

On Saturday the girls were restless. They decided to go on an adventure, but shopping was not enough to satisify them this particular day. (Except, of course, the stop they had to make to outfit themselves properly and fashionably for the adventure.) Will the cliffs prove to be too much of a challenge? Regardless, they didn't feel that they had overdressed for the occassion.
Stay tuned........

A Chill in the Air

G isn't very cooperative posing and I was too lazy to drag out the tripod, so please forgive the lack of clarity in this photo. HOWEVER the intention is to give you a feeling of warmth as we are beginning to experience a chill in the air.

Big Heart

My young nephew is growing his hair for Locks of Love, for his cousin who has leukemia. I think he has the biggest heart!

Are they worried?

I wonder if the pumpkins worry about their fate this time of year, as the turkeys do in November?

Happy Days

Just being nostalgic tonight..........oh, yeah, and gas was about 65 cents a gallon when this car was new. How do kids today afford to CRUISE?

Pot 'o Pansies

My friend gave me some "trick or treat" pansies which I planted today. As I was planting them I was remembering these pretty pansies I saw in Sedona last spring.

Vietnam Veteran tribute

I shot this image tonight at the traveling Vietnam Memorial Wall. Not having a tripod the photo isn't quite clear, but I'm wondering if it is really camera shake that placed those ghostly images on the wall. If you have never experienced seeing the real wall, please visit any time a traveling wall comes to your area. It is truly memorial.
To see the most incredible art that was displayed at this particular wall go here:

Creative Genius

Of all the things to see at the Zoo - this is what they wanted to take a picture of.
footnote: that snake was tucked safely behind a glass partition


GO where you've never been. Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.

Big girl

Chloe turned 5 today. She wanted her ears pierced. After getting the first one done (why didn't they do them both at the same time????) she cried, broke out in hives and told the lady she'd come back when she was 24 for the other one. Her mommy is wearing it for her until then.

young women

When I found this photo today, taken last Christmas, I thought of what this year has brought to my girls (well, I do share half of them with my sister)......
one of them sent her husband off to Iraq
one of them bought her very first home
one of them has reclaimed her inner strength
one of them is determined to achieve her goals
(and the "baby" will be turning 21 next week).
They are coming of age quite nicely. I'm so proud of all of them.

Lil' Pumpkins

At Rombach's Farm the pumpkins grow as far as the eye can see.
