This week on i heart faces....wonder

I couldn't help but look at this picture and think, now that is the perfect picture of "wonder". Cooper is so easy to photograph now, because he is learning so much everyday.

This photo was taken this past week at his brother's soccer practice. He was looking at an airplane flying over us. We have a navy base where we live, and the pilots fly over us all of the time. This particular plane kept flying over us for several minutes, but I captured Cooper's first "wonder" of it!

Have a great day!! Be sure to check out i heart faces for other entries this week.

Spring Is Just Around The Corner...

Sunday after church, we let a friend of Connor's come home to play. We went out for lunch, then came home and they played and they played and they played. It was pretty enough outside, probably around 65 degrees, that they were able to play outside for most of the afternoon. The parents of Connor's friend are friends of ours, and they had some much needed pruning to do in their yard. When they picked their son up, they brought me this bunch of daffodils. In the pre-spring here in the South, around the end of February to March they start popping up everywhere!! Aren't they beautiful? They smell wonderful too! I'm so ready for Spring to arrive!!

A Valentine's Surprise!!!

This Valentine's Day is very special to me. My husband works for one of the local power companies, and he's been in Kentucky for 7 days helping restore power after their winter storm.

I've been on call this weekend, so my mom has been at my house with our boys. I was taking a nap, and he walked in with a card, (a very sweet one i might add) and holding something behind his back. He told me he would understand if I didn't like it, so he gave me the bag, and low and behold, guess what was in it?

Yep, a purse, a Coach purse at that!! I couldn't believe it. I think I"m still in shock!! It's beautiful isn't it? I had to put the cute pic in of him with our boys. We were all soooo happy to see him!

Happy Valentines's Day!!

i heart faces week 5 theme silly

This week's theme on i heart faces for kids is silly. This is a picture of Cooper that I took while he was in the bathtub. He was really enjoying his bath that night. The way the camera catches the drops of water in the air adds a cool effect. Please visit the link for more entries in this week's contest. Have a great day!!

New For Spring! Coach Handbags!!

I've been looking at new spring handbags online, and decided to do a post on some of my favorite handbags from Coach.
These are all new looks for spring. I can't quite figure out which one is my favorite. I love all the bright colors, textures, and shapes of all the handbags.

They are quite pricey though. It never hurts a girl to look does it?

Which one is your favorite?

Coming later in the week...Coach accessories for spring!

Have a great day!

The 6th folder, & 6th picture

I've been tagged by Diane at A Picture Is Worth 1,000 Words, to pick the 6th folder and 6th pictures from My Pictures on the computer.

In this photo, Connor, who is now 6, was about 18 months old at the time, was getting his very first haircut. He was holding the infamous "brown bear", which is a whole other blog post....

I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but I'm very teary-eyed. It was an emotional experience for me. Cutting off all that baby hair wasn't easy. Of course like any Southerner, I saved the clippings of hair. I still have it, and would be heartbroken if I ever lost it.

Thanks Diane for this tag...these are my favorite tags...always fun to do!

Have a great day!!

The Eyes Have It

This week for the i heart faces contest the theme for kids/adults is The Eyes Have It. For this picture, I chose one of Connor. This picture of him was taken on the beach last summer, and his eyes just pop with the ocean as a beautiful backdrop. The contrast of his red hair and blue eyes is such a beautiful combination!

Please be sure the visit the link to see more beautiful photographs!
Have a great week!!
