First Snow

Today we had our first measurable snowfall of the year, there wasn't much but enough for the Granddaughter to want to play in and a chance for me to take some new pics.

Furry Faces - I Heart Faces Challenge

This is my neighbor's dog, Hope. She is a weimaraner, who was left for dead by her previous owner, she was in such bad shape the vet didn't even think she'd make it through the night. Hope has had a rough life, in fact I took these photos because my neighbor thought they were going to have to put her to sleep the next day, but this dog is a fighter and is very much alive and well today.

Giving Thanks

Everyone was here for Thanksgiving, which was fitting because I give thanks daily for these lil munchkins :D
(J1 made it on twice because there was an extra spot on the blogboard I used and I had to use that face he was making.)

History {Bucyrus, Ohio Photographer}

I've been on a quest for awhile to get a photo that I really liked of the old school. This school has been around for a long time, it started out as the High School, where my grandma, great aunts and uncles, my mothers, her brothers and my husband all went, then the new high school was built and this building became the middle school, where my own children went. Now it's the elementary building where all the kids in town go, and one day my own grandchildren will go there. To say this building has alot of history would be a huge understatement so I wanted to capture it in beautiful light, I hope I've done that.

She's so Cute....

this is what everyone says about my granddaughter, and I will admit, she's adorable and puts on a shy act like you wouldn't believe, but I'm quite sure there are hidden little devil horns somewhere on that precious little head of hers.

Happy Halloween

I entitled this Happy Halloween since it's a post of the grandkids in their costumes and one of the decorations. 
Hope you all had a happy one and got lots of candy!!!

Happy Fall!

You can smell it in the air, you can feel the change, the crispness hits you when you walk's fall! I love the fall but it marks the end of taking pics in the warm sunshine :( It was so foggy here this morning you could barely see, but it left lovely little droplets everywhere and I went out to shoot some little spiderwebs on the bushes when out of the corner of my eye I spotted a huge wet web just begging to have it's pic taken...but I don't think the big hairy spider was too into it, I mean he or she wasn't posing or anything.

Happy Fall!!!

Beating the winter blahs!

We all have the winter blahs around here, so yesterday we decided to visit our favorite summer place so I could get some winter pics.
These were taken in Marblehead, Ohio. Actually it's not just my favorite summer place, it's my favorite place, I love the water and the lighthouse.
