It's Monday....what do I see?

Soccer season is upon us!
I love it.
Big J is liking it.
Little L is loving it.
Henry is loving it.

Hip hip hooray.

**Side note. I promise to get pics of Big J next post. It will have to be sneaky. On the sly.

I heartfaces: let them be little

Yes, it's Monday and I'm doing a repeat picture. But, the theme this week for is let them be little. And isn't that what Little L is doing here?
I seriously look at this shot and laugh out loud.
Every. Single. Time.
So hopefully you don't mind looking at it again with me!

It's Monday....what do I see?

The many faces of Baby F.
I could just eat him.

It's Monday....what do I see?

I photographed these kids over the summer. I felt bad I did not share them with everyone. These kids made my camera smile. And they made me smile.

It's Monday....what do I see?

The art of making brownies.
At one point when the brownie mix was in his hair
and on his feet
I thought I should stop him. It's a mess.
But, then I thought, how could I take the joy away?
So I let him keep on with his creation of brownies.

Tasting. Is it just right?

More tasting. It's needs a little something...

This big guy joined in the fun in a more conservative way and then sat at the table and traveled to a time period where dinosaurs roam the Earth. He did partake in eating of the brownies when they were done.

Pure happiness on a Sunday morning.

It's Monday....what do I see?

Big J went to school today, ran up to his friend
and said,
You're not going to believe this! One of Saturn's moons has UNDERWATER VOLCANOES!
His friend broke down into a fit of giggles
and together they did a countdown for a shuttle launch.
And here I thought he wasn't really paying attention
at the observatory. I knew he was in awe of the big dome. And of the big telescope.
But, he was listening too.
Makes. me. proud.

Little L, Big Dome

Little L smiles with his eyes and his mouth...and it is just makes you want to do it too!

It's Monday....what do I see?

As promised, here I am on Monday night! It feels good.
School has started and I feel like I am at the start line of a long, long
The early hours.
The lunch making.
The homework (for kindergarten!)
The NUMEROUS announcements from both schools.
Trying to keep ahead of everybody by two steps.
In the meantime I'm trying to squeeze out summer for as long as I can.
So off to the beach we go. And Little L was determined to to build something.
His motivation was inspiring.
His drive was inspiring.
And he did it all without a cup of coffee! (I am up to 2 cups now with the early morning wake up call)
Happy Monday to all!

Where have you been?

Where have I been?

I have been hiding.
I was very faithful to my blog for 2 years.
And then this summer I needed a break. Not sure why. I have a few reasons
that I could probably say. But, I won't.
All I knew is I had a few people ask...and suddenly I was itching to get back.
I was motivated.
Back to Mondays again. Starting next week.

I haven't been hiding....

just on vacation in Hawaii for my brother's wedding.
No internet, no TV....just sun, sand, reading, family and relaxation.
But, I'm back. Pics to follow....eventually. I need to ease back into the real world.

iheartfaces: a touch of whimsey

It's Monday....and it's iheartfaces. I'm on a roll!
Here is my touch of whimsey.
This kid's imagination blows my mind. Two years on this earth and
his conversations with sticks, monkey dolls and trucks
is beyond the conversations I have with my own people.
They are passionate.
They are emotional.
They are full of love.
And at times they are full of frusturation.

His words are still few at this stage....but, his intent is strong.

iheartfaces: let's hear it for the boys

Another two for one.
It's iheartfaces Monday and it's Monday.
The theme this week is let's hear it for the boys.
I love my boys. Passionately. All three of them.
And when I need a break from stinky feet and wrestling matches....I head off
to meet some girls for girls supper club.

I took this pic the same day as below. It was a photo session for my own husband in disguise. I made a photo book for Father's day for him. Plus a sleep in. Plus breakfast in bed. Plus a massage and a movie night out for him. It was a perfect Father's Day for a well deserved Father.

iheartfaces: from a distance

It's Monday. It's I'm combining things today. It's a two for one.
The theme is from a distance. I didn't even know that was the theme until today yet oddly enough that was what I was working on this weekend with my pictures. I love up close...and I do that all day, every day. But, I forced myself to take a step back this weekend. And try to see what I see from a far. It was actually really fun.

And then a blimp flew right by us on this overcast day....and my boys were ecstatic.

Enjoy and check out the other iheartfaces entries here:

It's Monday....what do I see?

I know it's Tuesday, but in my mind it's Monday.
This is not an advertisement for Burt's Bees (although I love them), but
bath time is a favorite in my household.
At bath time my boys become
basketball players
scuba divers
volcano specialists
race car drivers
yellow submarines
and birds in the clouds
I love it when they almost forget I'm there....and I just listen to their chatter while they play.


His way of "hiding" from the camera.

iheartfaces: motherhood

It's Monday--so post day, but I am also combining it with the submission for iheartfaces.
This week's theme is motherhood--a day I celebrate for myself. (A massage and movie But, more importantly I celebrate who brought me to where I am at now. My mother. My mom. My mommy. Everyday I try to measure up to what my mom did for me and everyday I think....damn it. How did she do it!?
She's a gardener, a reader, a golfer and a crossword puzzle lover. A listener, a talker, a wine and cheese cracker snacker. A loud laughter, solitaire player, a night owl and a worrier. She is soft and hard and opinionated and kind.
And she made me.

Pretty cool to have her hang with my youngest one here.

It's Monday....what do I see?

I tried taking L's nukie away from him.
This was his reaction.
He is quite opinionated, isn't he?
After our summer trip, there will a be an intervention.
Cold turkey.
Ciao nukie.
I just wanted to see what I was in for.

It's Monday....what do I see?

Oh goodness. I took pics of this little girl for her modeling portfolio.
How do I love a little baby girl in a pink onsie and little rolls on her legs!

Oh what a silly Daddy. And see J in the background. He wanted to help entertain with bubbles.

It's Monday....what do I see?

One day late with no end in sight.'s "Let's look in the past Tuesday"
Which really means I haven't had time to shoot/download/organize
any of my new photos.

So back in the past we go....
The Cuban part of him is so apparent here!

It's Monday....what do I see?

My friends got married!
It was sweet and simple and beautiful. It put thoughts into
my head that I want to re-new my vows in a similar ceremony.
I could wear my old dress again! It could be motivation
to stay on track of my "get back into old Eva shape."
Here are the pics. This ceremony was what weddings are all about.
The love and the laughter. LOTS of laughter. LOTS of love.
