Hoppy Easter!

You’ve seen a lot of this little guy lately. What can I say …ย he captivates me and my camera. ๐Ÿ™‚ Cole isย now 10 months and in keeping with tradition of the g-babes before him, I take monthly pictures the first year (in case you hadn’t figured that out).ย He is such a sweet content little guy.

Looks like everyone had lots of fun!

All that naked little child with bunny ears on is too much!

Fun to see all the pictures from your special sleepover. These kids are so lucky to have active, creative, energetic grandparents like you to make memories like this.

I love it.

Thanks Mary K. Short and sweet — just like my g-babes.

Tracey - March 28, 2016 - 8:33 AM

What wonderful memories made. You have such great ideas and the children look like they are always having so much fun at grandpa and grandmas house.
God Bless you all.

They out number me so I have to do these things now while I can still keep up. Hopefully the memories will help them be nice to Mike and I in our old age! Thanks Tracey. I appreciate you.

Love it! Especially Simone’s ‘serious’ face… reminds me of her mama ๐Ÿ™‚

Hi Liz, thanks for chiming in. I’ll let “mama” know about your comment. She will say that she might resemble that. ๐Ÿ™‚

Seriously Mary… you need to stop taking so many dang photos. I’m starting to get mad at you!!

First off, it is totally awesome that you do such a detailed and consistently fantastic job capturing our families lives, but every time I turn around there is another picture that I need to print off and find a place for. It’s too much, the walls are closing in on me and I can’t breathe! My office already looks like the national headquarters for missing children, and our home looks like we obsess a little too much about our kids. STOP IT!!!

…The aforementioned comments were laden with an abundance of sarcasm and jest. :o) Thank You!!!!

Dear Son-in-law. I feel your pain … you’ve seen my g-babes room. How can I help you if I can’t help myself? Love from “I’ll never stop cause your kids are too cute”.

Such DARLING pictures !!! You and Mike are such wonderful Grandparents! Those kids just get cuter and cuter! Our “baby” granddaughter is getting married May 22 to a fantastic guy. He has one more year of seminary to be a youth pastor and Heather just signed a contract in Susan & Ashlee’s
School district to teach math in a middle school!!
The wedding will be in California.
Love & Hugs, LoraLee

Hi Lora Lee and thank you! Miss you guys — hope you make it to Boise this year for a visit. You can then hear for yourselves how noisy these kids are … something you don’t hear in a blog post. ๐Ÿ™‚ Ha!

Birthday Girls – Lily and Addi

I had the fun of getting to see my girlfriend Gloria and her two granddaughters a week ago for birthday pics. Addi was a Valentine’s baby and is now 13 months. She’s not walking yet but that will come soon enough and then her parents and grandparents will really have a hard time keeping up […]

Mary, you’ve done it again! You captured Addi so beautifully, and those eyes! โค I love the pictures of the two girls together too! They sure do adore each other and you captured it perfectly! I cannot thank you enough for snapping these memories for us!

Fairly Candid - March 21, 2016 - 11:41 AM

Thank you Sara. She does have pretty eyes … and pretty much everything else. ๐Ÿ™‚

Vince - March 21, 2016 - 8:52 PM

I like these indoor shots almost more than the exteriors. They’re just so pristine, and they keep the focus solely on your subjects. (Pretty adorable subjects here, by the way.)

Mary Mouser - March 22, 2016 - 8:01 PM

Thanks Vince. I think I agree for the most part. ๐Ÿ™‚

Dawn - March 23, 2016 - 8:39 AM

Thank you Mary, for capturing the sweet side of my… feisty.. child. I am going to blow one up to hang in my office. ๐Ÿ˜€

Fairly Candid - March 26, 2016 - 10:34 PM

It was all my fun Dawn. What a little sweet lady Lily is growing up to be. She always was but she just seems so grown up to me now. Very polite and funny … as in “banana!” I’m sure you get the joke. ๐Ÿ™‚

Let’s Fly Away – Cole at 9 Months (and 8 Months)

9-ยฝ months. This was supposed to be Cole’s one year photo session, but as baby’s do, they outgrow stuff and Megan was fearful this little outfit wouldn’t last that long (it’s a 12-18 months). The fabulous airplane belongs to Megan’s friend Christine, built by her dadย for her to use with her three boys. It’s actually […]

Oh my sweet, beautiful, gorgeous, happy, blue eyed boy! I can’t believe how fantastic these turned out ! I don’t remember such wonderful smiles the day of but man you captured it all perfectly. Thank you for doing this, and thank you to Christine for the awesome plane!

Oh, and he totally loves his Gramma.

Megan - March 18, 2016 - 9:41 AM

I come back to this post at least once a day. I can’t get enough!

Vince - March 18, 2016 - 2:22 PM

TOO cute! Good work as always, Mary. Glad to see you back at it.

Rob - March 27, 2016 - 1:54 PM

Thanks for the great pictures! That airplane and Cole are a perfect combination. I need to get some of these printed off.
