Meeting Blake

On March 11, 2014, Mister Blake came into this world and made my brother a 4th time Dad; now that there was another little Griesser man to contend with, we were all feeling both excited and terrified. Hopefully, he will take after his mother. 🙂 Because I couldn’t justify using my flash, I had to embrace the noise. Here are a few that I love, and the rest can all be seen here.

First visit:


After this most awesome of visits, it was a little while before we got to come hang out again. But when we did, little Mister Blake had done quite a lot of changing (as babies are wont to do). I’m including a few of the ones I love the most, but as always, I uploaded the entire batch on my SmugMug.



Winter Parks and Spring Eggs

Again, from a long while ago; this one takes me back to 2014 in late winter and mid-Spring.

We had a lovely family day at the park one day when Emma needed to stretch her legs (and her lungs). Here are a few from the day, and the rest are here.


Then in Spring, we took Emma to the annual University of Dayton Alumni Easter Egg Hunt. I’m attaching my favorites, and here are the remainder.dsc_9581dsc_9596dsc_9604dsc_9651dsc_9680dsc_9710dsc_9726

Until next time…

XMas 2013

So, here’s the thing. I’m ONLY 3 years behind on photos. It’s been a busy few years here for us… but slowly, I’m going to work on getting this ol’ blog back up to speed.

Here’s Christmas of 2013 – from what I recall, I was fresh off a hysterectomy, Emma was two, Peyton was one, Paige was 3, Blakey was still in utero, and everyone came to our house to celebrate together. Here are some of my favorites, but here are the rest.

And obviously, nothing says Christmas like Netflix’s finest offering.
