Random phone photo dump

Well today is a random iPhone photo dump. Most, but not all, are from my daily Instagram feed. I’ve been taking a photo a day on IG of something I am thankful for in 2012. I’m “underthesycamore” on Instagram.

Poppy (our cat) climbed to the top of one of our trees. She made it half way down and I had to climb halfway up to get her.

The Andersons stopped by for lunch while they were driving through town. The youngest 2 and the oldest 2.

Happy Friday to you!!

I do one myself monthly and it’s a great way to appreciate all those little magical moments that we might have otherwise forgotten. Went to an art exhibit last night with my kids and there was one exhibit that reminded me of Firecrackers’ wings – will post on IG later today.
