Mike and I went to the Highland games on Saturday, there were many people playing the bagpipes.  There was a big parade, lots of vendors, animals, food, and men in kilts.  Mike even wore one.  We had a really fun time and heard some great celtic music.  I took the picture of her and with my photoshop added her to some beautiful green grass, like in Scotland.



When I went to take a picture of one of my favorite statues, it was covered with BIRDS. Maybe they were attracted to the wings.


I've been running every day or every other day, 8 miles, this is the last bridge I come  to every day when I run, and I'm so happy when I get over it, althought when I run the gate the last bridge is the Hart bridge which is much bigger.  This is my one of my favorite bridges in Jacksonville, it always has been.

My mom actually snapped this picture after a long day at Disney World of Eli and me.  This one is of his little brother Ethan I took in his mama's arms.

Amanda (My sister-in-law)

When I see this picture I think back of a time when Autumn was born, and Amanda would sing "You are My Sunshine".  Autumn was definately all of our sunshine!  She still is.  My favorite memory of Amanda is laying out in Sherry's front yard at night, looking up at the stars with baby Autumn laying on top of us, dreaming of what is to come, and believing that wonderful things were coming with our little ray of sunshine!

Andy (My brother-in law) and proud Father

Here's Andy with Ethan a few months ago.  I love this picture of the two of them.  Andy has a beautiful soul, He sings to his sons, and my sister.  He plays the guitar.  He has been given a wonderful God given talent, his voice and his music, not to mention the other many blessings.  Man I have a lot of A's in my family, only have one more coming up.  As you can probably tell I enjoy taking pictures of people the most, but I do want to try some other things, just didnt' realize how many people in my family start with the letter A till I decided to do this.

Alicia (My Mom)

My mom hates her picture taken, she just doesn't see how beautiful she is I think, but I do.  This was taken when Sherry, Autumn, and she came to see me.  So I put a little beach as the background.  She is beautiful to me!

Art of Anna

This is a picture I drew of my step-sister Anna for Christmas.  You can even see the Christmas tree in the picture when I took a picture of it.  Anna has been in our family for over ten years, I've watched her grow up into a young lady.

Today I took Abby out for a walk and a little photo shoot!  We had fun playing with her little baby, or her squeak toy.  Every time you squeeze it her ears go up.  It has been a beautiful day!

This is Mikes' nephew Asher, the hand is Mike showing him a flower from outside, his eyes just lit up!  Hands can show you beautiful things, He's a sweet kid that loves his grandma!


I saw the ABC challenge over at Sunflowerkat321's journal.  I love all of her journals   So here goes my first entry.  I guess I'm making up my own rules so since I'm starting today.  For the next few days until Saturday of next week, my pictures will be of A of course.  Who else to start off with but Autumn.

My sister Sherry

Did this picture of my sister Sherry yesterday, thought it looked pretty cool, I'm working on her Wedding Website, and am having a good time doing it.  I'm really looking forward to it, I'm going to do the photography with the help of some Mike and some friends.  Well it's lunch time I've got to go grab a bite.

Sherry's love is special
in oh so many ways
Now miles stretch between us
and minutes turn to days.
We've shared so much as children
the tears, the joys, the pain
A lifetime spent together
those memories remain.
In times gone by we've pondered
the paths our lives have taken
Knowing that in spite of this
our love unshaken.
My sister's love is special
in ways that are unspoken
Still that binding force exists
our love unbroken.
Well looks like one more year has passed by.


She sent me this the other day it was something I wrote for her like two years ago on her birthday, and she had saved it.

Got Milk?


Wow! What can I say

Not much  but if I could talk

here's what I'd say...

You sure have some tasty milk!!

In a bottle or right from the tree

it sure does my body good!

It sure is fun spending

my day with you!

I know when I cry

you will always be there!

I love you Mommy!

Baby Ethan Zane

Eli and Teddy

I walked into Eli's room and he was playing with his tractor on his old toychest, with Teddy in arm, he doesn't go anywhere without Teddy.  Made me think of Dena when she was little, I had gone to 4-H camp and brought her back a teddy bear, she named him Stanley, she kept him for a long time, until she left him out in the rain, then Mama went searching everywhere for another Stanley, she found one too, that looked just like ole Stanley.  Eli loves his Teddy.
