About Me

My photo

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.

I was assured this is NOT a joke. If you were able to pass these 3 tests, you can cancel your annual visit to your neurologist. Your brain is great and you're far from having a close relationship with Alzheimer.


Congratulations!

Art Work....

Tonight I was checking the kids folders - a nightly affair in our house and I found some art work that Tanner and Tyler brought home from school.  I thought i would share these with you all. 

Tanner worked really hard on his pin punch project. He has worked on it all week. I think he did a pretty good job! 
Tanner is very proud of his master piece! 

Tyler had a book of art work. I was pleasantly surprised to see that he had 5 different pictures stating I like my Mom. My heart was about to burst.. then I saw this one.... Then I busted a gut... Is what I THINK it is?? Puppy Love???

I Love Trinity... Aww so sweet. Then I looked closer....
Ummm... Are those???? Ummm boobs?
I was afraid to ask - so I just giggled a little bit and moved on to the next picture! 
I Like my Bab (Dad)...
I like Caleb.
Trinity strikes again.. He really has it for this little girl! 

My Favorite: I like my Mom...

And Trinity....

I finally asked about Trinity. Tyler politely let me know that she was his girlfriend... along with a polite eye roll...
They start entirely too young these days!

Pony Ride

Our neighbors across the street gave us a buzz yesterday and invited us over for a pony ride. Turns out our neighbors brother and his wife just got a pony named "Fuzzy". They are going to start hosting birthday parties for kids out at their farm. I am pretty sure our next birthday party will be at the farm. The kids really had a great time. This was the first time any of them ever got on a horse. Thanks K Family for such a great afternoon! 

Thomas all smiles! 


Tanner ♥ed it! 
And Tyler all smiles....

Something kind of Fun...

See how well you do in placing the states of the Unites States of America! All you do is look at the top and drag and drop the state where it belongs on the map! If you have a few minutes, check out this little game.  The kids thought it was pretty neat. Thomas did really well. Let me know how you did~  United States of America. I scored an 86 - don't laugh it is tougher than you think! LOL Enjoy...

Sleep Over

Thomas decided that he wanted a sleep over for his birthday party this year. So I allowed him to pick 3 of his friends to come sleep over. So in total we had six little boys in our house last night. The boys had a great time. Aside from the urge to run in the house there were no problems. Everyone shared and played together great. We took the boys out to eat pizza and the "Big" boys got to sit at one booth, Frank, Tyler, Tanner and I sat at a booth right beside them. Everyone behaved so nicely. We came home and played DS for few minutes and then we watched Madagascar II. After that, the boys were starting to yawn a little so I pulled out all the sleeping bags and pillows. I put in Star Wars and by 11:30 they were asleep. 

The boys woke before the sun this morning. 5:45 is when I heard them. No telling how long they had been up there playing. Needless to say, I bet I know some little boys that will take nap this afternoon! Here are a few pictures of the fun!

Thomas is 8

Today my first baby, Thomas turns 8 years old. This little boy is an absolute blessing. I can't  believe that I will not have 3 car seats in my truck anymore! He gets to ditch the booster seat! He couldn't wait to get rid of that thing. I did tell him that he could still use it if he wanted too - but his answer was "No way Mom"! Frank and I decided to let him have his birthday gift from us a little early. We gave it to him yesterday. It was such a beautiful day, we could not resist. After all there is not much time to enjoy a new bike after school, homework, ball practice, and a birthday dinner! He loved it! It is a pretty fancy bike too (Tony Hawk)! He had to get use to the "hand" brakes. He enjoyed riding around all day! Of course there had to be a little "Star Wars" action going on too! I will post more birthday pictures later...

Yeah - He likes it! ALOT! LOL


Posing with his new wheels...
Taking her out for a spin! 

And of couse a little Star Wars action!

My Skoy Cloths Have Arrived!


You may recall that I recently won a pack of Skoy cloths from Monkey's Mamma's giveaway. Well they came in the mail yesterday. Let me tell guys -  these little guys are wonderful! I couldn't wait to try them out. I grabbed them right away and wet one down. I wiped my granted counter tops down. Normally everything that I use to clean these counter tops with leaves them streaked. Not these bad boys.. Just plain water and PRESTO - clean and shiny! Jump on over to their website and order some now. You will not be disappointed! I will be buying more! :)
Thanks to Monkey's Mamma for such a great giveaway and thank-you Skoy for such a great product!

It's My Birthday..

Today I celebrate my 37th birthday! I had breakfast brought to me at work, lunch with some friends and a "surprise" staff meeting that resulted in eating LOTS of Birthday cake. Frank and the boys gave birthday cards too. We will most likely go out to eat for dinner tonight! I have received over 50 emails and posts on my FB wall too!
Thanks to all for all the birthday wishes!

Next week... Thomas will be 8 years old. Time to get the party details worked out! I will be posting about the "sleep over" later....
