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.

Christmas Day

We had a wonderful Christmas this year. My little Tanner was sick with a fever which started Christmas Eve and all day Christmas day. Poor guy, he slept 4 hours on Christmas day. He is feeling much better now . Any how, we missed Rebecca and Steven (in-laws) as they are living in Florida now and were not able to make the trip home for Christmas. We still had a house full - full of family and full of love. My parents, my sister Many, my sister Stevie and her fiance Brock, Ms. Nancy(Steven's mother), and Steven's Uncle Joe and Aunt Jean were all here to celebrate Christmas. We had a nice brunch which consisted of way too much food, and opened gifts. The boys were so excited to see that Santa had brought them what they asked for. They got a Nintendo DS and a Wii. That is all that they asked for - good thing because the elves couldn't build them any more gifts! LOL. We all enjoyed the day - I just wished it could have lasted a little bit longer...

We sprinkled Reindeer food out- it consists of oatmeal and glitter. The glitter makes the oatmeal "sparkle" so the Reindeer can see it from the sky.

Here are the boys in their new jamimies. I normally get them Christmas jammies, but I couldn't find any this year. I think they liked these better!

Tanner - not feeling up to taking pictures.

Cookies for Santa.

Aunt Stevie passing out gifts.

The aftermath.... Sad - I know. But it was Christmas!

Looks like a great Christmas in your house. Hope Tanner is feeling much better. I used to be that kid that was always sick on holidays and it was never fun.

Take care.

One of the things I love most about Christmas is the jammies... love them, especially ones with footsies.

My son would love the one with the guitar... very cool!
