Easter Sunday

 I had so much fun planning the boys Easter outfits this year.  I got a head start a few months ago since I was hoping to be pregnant soon and knew I wouldn't be able to sew.  I made the bow ties on a whim one day with some fabric I had bought to make ties for them last year and never used.  Later I bought the faux linen for their pants (I avoid ironing at all costs), cut the pattern out and promptly got too sick to care about sitting up long enough to sew.  That is when my Mom, the amazing seamstress, came to the rescue. She whipped up their adorable pants and I love the result.  Bug reminds me of Einstein and Bear of Alfalfa. Bow ties are so funny.
 Bug, our "Mr. A Type" personality, was more concerned about his shoes getting wet than posing for a picture. Bear, on the other hand, was all kicks and giggles.  It is funny how different two boys from the same parents can be.  We love them so much.

Happy Easter!

Growing the Husker Nation

The past five weeks have looked a little something like this:
A very messy house with lots of laundry not put away.
Spending time with a few things that I can actually stomach right now.
Being too tired to protect my camera from the boys.
Hopefully things will be back to normal within the next few weeks.  If not, at least we know it will all be worth it come the second week of November.  Here's hoping for a baby girl!

Correct Exposure

 One of my friends is sharing a photography book with me.  Here are my first shots creating correct exposure in the manual setting! Wahoo.

A New Era

Growing up I looooved soccer and have dreamt of the day my kids would play.  Well those dreams came true,  my first born started today and I couldn't have been more happy, albeit a little jealous that I wasn't the one suiting up in my shin guards and cleats. 
He has talked about it all day and told me when I tucked him in, "I loved playing soccer today, Mom."  Those words were music to my heart.   Now he is laying in bed telling his little brother all about how he plays soccer now and that when Bear gets older he can get cleats and play too.  These are the times that make the hard work of being a mom feel worth it.
