    I’ve had a lot of fun playing with filters and photos, the following are examples of my fun!

  • Deep in the Hundred Acre Wood

    Today we visited our friends who live deep in the Hundred Acre Wood.

First it was T-I-double-guh-errr and Jude kissed, hugged, […]

  • Build Your Own

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.

A long time ago…
