My oldest.

It's not very often that my oldest son lets me take pics of him, but he wanted some new MySpace pictures, so I got to snap some this morning. :D

Day 8/365. Sun on my face.

I have been tossing around some ideas of a possible name for my "business" whenever I feel I am ready to get started. I've also been trying out some possible watermarks. Please let me know what you think.

Playing with fire!

JAED is the first letter of my kids' names. When you look at it, do you think of the word Jade? I was struggling with it. I spelled it this way because that is the order my kids were born, and it would be different.


Also, I am attempting to do the 365 project. I started 2 days ago. I don't know if I'll be able to keep up with it, with trying to be chauffer and mom to 4 kids and working full time. (Don't get your hopes up Shannon). I am going to try though. These are my day 1 and day 2 pics. In case you're wondering why no water mark on day 1....because I can't imagine anyone wanting to copyright it!! :D I hate pictures of myself, but I better start liking it if I am going to do this!! Have a wonderful Friday everyone.

Little Einsteins

This is my new favorite cartoon for my kids to watch....okay, so maybe I am the one who loves to watch it! I love that it teaches them so much about music. If you have never watched an episode (like I hadn't until recently), you should try it out, especially if you are a music lover or play yourself. I think you will like it for your kids! Yesterday, my 3-year-old daughter heard some music on the radio get louder and said, "Mommy, that is a crescendo." So cool!

CAPTCHA: In 2000, Luis von Ahn, Manuel Blum, and Nicholas J. Hopper, affiliates of Carnegie Mellon University, and IBMs John Langford coined this term, which stands for Completely Automated Public Turing test to tell Computers and Humans Apart (CAPTCHA).

The above CAPTCHA pretty much describes what I feel like when I try to enter one of these! I do not need any more challenge trying to get my almost 40-year-old eyes to decipher something!!! I get the idea....let's make sure the "robots don't take over," but my bifocals will be working overtime on these gems!! Anyway, what do you all think of CAPTCHAs?

Also, got some pics of the full moon this morning. :D

This friendly visitor is perched outside my kids' bedroom window!

You are my sunshine,
My only sunshine.
You make me happy,
When skies are blue.
You'll never know dear,
How much I love you.
Please don't take my sunshine away.
