About Me

My photo
Greenville, North Carolina, United States
Hello, My name is Tracey. I am a wife, sister, daughter, and mother of three. I have taken photos of my children and family members for years. My love for photography became a passion when I received my first 35mm SLR from my wonderful husband for my 1st Mothers Day. Nothing captures a moment in time like a photograph. It is my desire to capture images that reflect life's moments as you remember it.


Thomas is our first born son. He loves to swim, ride bikes, skate board, and body board. He loves to read and does well in school. He was named after my Dad. He is known as "The Ladies Man" at school. Chicks dig him!


Tyler is our "smiley" second child. He is very loving and sweet. His tries to use his smile to keep him out of trouble. He enjoys riding his bike, making sand castles, skate boarding, and sports. His smiling face will win your heart.


Tanner is our baby of the family. He loves to play with his big brothers and will try (and most of the time succeed) to do everything that his big brothers do! He has the funniest expressions. He is a good little fellow and a Mama's Boy.

Are the Smurfs Moving in???

While I was outside hanging out with the boys yesterday afternoon I discovered this community of mushrooms. We decided to look around the yard to see how many we could find. OMG! There were soo many! All different kinds too. I have decided that the Smurfs were moving in! Now you may be asking what is a Smurf? Here is what I found on the Smurfs website - yes they have their own website!
Far, very far from here, in a little village full of mushroom-shaped houses live the Smurfs. The little characters are three apples high, have blue skin and are dressed in white trousers and a cap. Yet they are a happy, easy-going bunch - give or take one or two.

Here is some suggested reading as published by

Top 5 Books
1. Road Map To Holland
2. Gifts: Mothers Reflect on How Children with Down Syndrome Enrich Their Lives
3. Babies with Down Syndrome
4. Communication Skills in Children with Down Syndrome
5. Gross Motor Skills in Children with Down Syndrome

I have personally read the first two books. I recommend not only new parents of children with DS read these, but also the parents friends and family.
