Happy Birthday Tye!


Every year I do an "official" photo shoot with the boys around their birthday. Tye, is...how shall we put it...unpredictable! I mean, you just never know with this kid, his brain has one gear D, which is what makes him such a joy, and well...such a joy!

So although I had a million ideas, I knew there would be a bit of a gap from idea to execution. This called for a bit of well, creative thinking...how could I make him sit during his session AND be happy about it? Viola! Put a big fat cake in front of him.

It was a HUGE success! I think he would have sat in front of that cake until the house burnt down. Wonderful!



DISCLAIMER: I do realize cake session are typically reserved for the One Year milestone...but c'mon...he's my baby...why fight it, once a baby always a baby, right?

Blow Mold

I love my husband, married 12 years this August and he is always fun and interesting to be married to. Bruce loves the History Channel and for some odd reason I love, that he loves, the history channel. He will always give me some random information or little news tidbit from something he has watched or heard. And, the guy retains everything, well almost everything...with the exception that my birthday is October 25th, not the 24th. This is not necessarily a bad thing because I have been known to get a birthday "week"...this may mean he is very very thoughtful...or like Vegas just playing the numbers....but, I digress....

Last night Bruce kidnapped me from the computer to watch the History Channel as they highlighted one of my favorite companies Bolthouse Farms. I have had the pleasure of working with Bolthouse and it has been an incredible experience. I will post more Images soon...however, in the meantime this Image is of the interesting process of Blow molding, or blow forming. My own nikipedia definition: A process that uses heat to take a small hollow plastic and create a large hollow plastic. In this case a carrot juice bottle. A big sorry to all the Thermoplastic wizards out there...I stretched myself as far as possible just to come up with that definition. Really, I think the Image says it best, it is like MAGIC! (:

I just love this age! I asked Madalyn if she was nervous...she said, "No not really, I am more nervous about leaving for Scicon this week." I LOVE it!

Hope you have a great time at Scicon Madalyn!
