My daddy........

I have been trying to post something for a couple of days now, and I just can't do it.
Last Sunday my dad had a heart attack at church. He went to the Pomerine Hospital, and they transfered him to Aultman. They found a lot of blockage in his heart.
He was doing better by Friday and they said that he could go home on Monday. (That would have been today.....oh how I wish that it was today) Saturday he got out of bed, he walked a little, he sat in a chair and ate his breakfast. They stood him up after breakfast and he said he felt dizzy.....He then collapsed, and he was gone. They got him into bed and worked on him for 30 minutes and they couldn't get him back.

I miss my daddy.

Three weeks old

This family was given a gift certificate for three sessions at their baby shower. Gift certificates make great gifts! Contact me for information!

It took a while, but we got him to sleep:

I guess he got a kick out of the santa hat! (even though he was asleep!)I love baby yawns!TTFN! Martha

A couple of One year olds from this week....

I am so busy that it is hard to find time to blog. I did want to share these two cuties.

Miss I will be one this month. She doesn't walk yet, so it was easy to get photos of her standing. Once they walk it is hard to keep them in one place!
This one is my absolute favorite!

And this is Mr B....
He had so many cute faces....
I love this one:

My afternoon with my son.....

This is not really how I had planned to spend my afternoon, but today Adam and I spent the afternoon in the ER!
Yesterday we had a family Christmas party/reunion at a local school. The kids were all in the gym playing ball, and Adam bent down to pick up a soccer ball and at the same time his 2nd cousin was gearing up to kick it. He ended up kicking Ad in the hand in the thumb area.
When we got home, it was hurting him and a little swollen. But this morning it was black and blue and swollen and very sore. The bad thing is that it is his right hand, and he is right handed. He had a hard time writing at school.I called the Dr. and they said that he should be X-rayed. So once he got home from school, we went to the ER to be seen and to get some X-rays.

This is Ad being a dork! He was laying down waiting for the Dr and staring at the light.....

Getting ready to be xray'd
Here is his xray. The Dr said that there is a slight fracture and so he wants to keep a splint on it for a week and then we are to get it checked again. =(Me, squishing his head! We were passing time waiting for the dr!

Here is his spint and wrap:And yes, we know he needs a haircut! But he likes it long.....So tomorrow night he will do his speaking part in the school play with a splint! Ahhhh....he will be ok! He was feeling pretty good once we left the ER and then we stopped and got him some fast food for supper! Doesn't that always make everything better??

This is my new star basket, I like it!

Even though these guys came one day apart, they are cousins, so I thought that I would put them in the same post.
These first three are siblings. Miss A is always so photogenic....

I got a few of Little guy F.....I love his oneryness!

And Baby Q is almost 6 months old now....boy does time fly!
Most of the group shots looked like this! Ask their mama if you want the whole story!! *wink wink*

Here is the one.....ONE good group shot!

Now here is their cousins....
Miss J was pretty serious though the whole shoot. This was one of the rare smiles that I caught.

Gotta love Santa hats! Mr A has a great smile!I think that this is my favorite from the day...Isn't he so cute?!TTFN! Martha

Need a Snow Day?

What will we do to get a great photo??

Last week we had a shoot with a nice little family. I started taking their pictures three years ago. It has been so nice to watch their family grow.

This year their twins are almost two and Little Miss L would not leave her mama's side. They thought that she would do better without them in the studio, so her mama handed her over to dad and she went and hid. Then it was dad's turn to hide, so he handed her to Olivia and he went downstairs. She cried for a few minutes, and then she was fine. But whenever Olivia tried to put her on the stool she would cry! So after a few times of that happening, I had the idea of sitting Liv on the stool and putting L on her lap.

Here is the picture of Miss L. It's not a perfect smile, but, hey, she's not crying!
And here is Liv.....Isn't she the greatest assistant?? *grin*

Here is Miss L's twin brother, Mr K:
And their big sister S:
And here is the whole family! You should have seen the crazy things we were doing in order to get all three kids looking at us! I am sure it was a sight!TTFN! Martha

My galleries seem to be down

I have heard from several of you that you cannot get in to see your photographs. I am having trouble with my website, and so that is the problem.

I am contacting them to see if they can get it fixed. Please be patient, and I will update you when I know something.

Need a smile?

One more post before I head to bed.....
How can you look at this face and not smile? This is Miss J and she was very active, but I did manage to catch a few good ones!
Her oldest Brother, Mr J.... The middle child....Mr J...

All three.... And this is how a wall display would look with 11x14 prints, with two inch white mats and a wooden frame.....I am now selling frames and mats, so if you think that this is something that you might want, just ask me!
