Instagram Round-up. Omaha Edition

While I was away my iphone was my friend.
I do not have a laptop so I use my phone to keep in touch with my family and fans.  hahahaha
I have no way to upload my Nikon pictures.
The Instagrams/iPhone pictures had to step up to the plate.

And I think they really did this time.
Melinda posted with the pictures I took in the room, right away.
It was wonderful to be able to share things, lickety-split.

Goldfish for breakfast? Sure.

The first morning Asher ate Goldfish and fruit snacks for breakfast.
The next morning I buckled down and made scrambled eggs and a bagel and a banana.

Malachi Boucher. Welcome to our world.



He was a sleepy dude.

Eyes open :D  sweet face

My favorite of Malachi.

  3. The important thing about life is love.
    Everything else is just a distraction :)
    Sweet pics!
    Love to all of you!

  4. I don't think Asher could take a poor picture, and it looks like Malachi will be the same way. What a wonderful picture of Melinda--so much love there. So glad you were there to help with Asher and help document with photos.

    I'd say you scored with the instagram photos. You captured so much.

    I'm glad you got to spend some one-on-one time with Asher. I know how important that is. My mother-in-law only lives over an hour away from us, but still doesn't get to see Sophia that much. So, we try to plan time for some grandma/Sophia bonding. It means the world to my mother-in-law. And she is always exhausted when we go to pick Sophia up. hahaha It's a good tired though.

  8. I love brotherly love. How fabulous!

    And, when he is all grown up Asher will remember the goldfish and fruit snacks that his Yaya let him have for breakfast. Being a grandparent means you can spoil them a little with fun treats once in a while. I love being the grandparent this time around. ;-)

    Beautiful just amazingly beautiful photographs taken with your phone. No one else I know can find the light like you can. Such a sweet family and so happy for you that you could be there with them. And, glad you are back in the groove driving Miss Katie. Not much longer for this school year though, right? love and prayers, jep

      But whose counting, right? :)

      I bet Katie missed you while you were away. Enjoy the last few weeks of your driving gig and thanks for sharing precious peeks into the life of Asher and company. You're a genius with the iPhone!

      Graduation for our liberal arts university here in town are this coming Saturday, so I suspected that public schools would be out soon. Summer time and the living is easy...Fantasia, I can still hear her.

  12. I have loved following you on IG these last few days. New baby is just so wonderful and there is truly nothing else in the world like it. Congratulations on such a sweet, beautiful new grand child to welcome to the family!

  13. The shower was just in the nick of time. I turned around, and baby was here. So very happy for you and the whole family. He is just as beautiful as Asher was when he was born. God's blessings on him and may he have a wonderful life.
