I see the moon and the moon sees me.

Some of you may know that I scrapbook. It's an obsession. My other obsession? Yep. My family.

One of our children is Erika. She is 9 years old and has a knack for photography. This picture she took the other night and even though it is grainy.....I LOVE IT!! She has an eye for great shots and comes in and grabs my camera all the time. She doesn't know it yet but I am getting a new camera for Christmas and I am going to let her have for her own personal use my old camera. Heck, she knows more about that darn thing than I do. Can't wait to see what tricks she can show me with my new one when I get it!! She told me that tonight she is going to retake that picture when there is more sunlight out so that she doesn't have to change the shutter speed. Yep, that kid is mine!! She knows about shutter speeds!

So. More about my Erika. She is an animal lover......yes, she brings home every stray animal I will allow. We have dogs, cats, fish and GOATS at our house. The hamsters are all gone....Thank Goodness!! She LOVES, LOVES, LOVES her Daddy. Can't say that I blame her, I kinda like him too!! When he is awake, she is constantly showing him all her treasures she has accumulated while he was at work. They love to be outdoors, and spend lots of time out there doing projects together. Dave is VERY hands-on with our kids.

So, now I will leave you with a picture of Erika that I took yesterday in a field of sunflowers that aren't too far from our house.
