Last January, I deactivated my Facebook account for almost a full year. When a few of my friends asked me if I missed it, I mentioned to them that the only thing I missed was not seeing the pictures of my out-of-town family and friends (and their growing kids!).
My friends reminded me of this fun little app (which I thought for years was simply a photo editing tool) and it sounded right up my alley. A photo-editing app in which I can share with and see pictures of my friends. I love that it’s very simple and easy to use. It’s like Facebook without all the extra noise.
My favorite thing about Instagram is the spontaneous, in-the-moment pictures that I’ve captured while out and about with my boys (without having to lug my heavy camera around with me everywhere I go). They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so here a few thousand words capturing the hilarious personality of our little Sam.

Sam, just a tad skeptical of the man in the suit…
Sam says to me, “Mom, look! It’s Jesus waving ‘Hello!”, I’m going to wave back, okay!”
I hear from the back of the van, “Hey, Momma! Look at this new way to wear my hat!”
“Hey, Momma, do you see something in my nose?!?!”
Two of Sam’s favorites: his cousin Rylee and donuts.
While in Rockport last summer, I asked Sam to go put on his shoes and hop in the van. I found him wearing two koozies.
He said, “Look, Mom! They’re my slippers!
If given the freedom, Sam would wear shorts every day of the year regardless of weather.
When he has to wear pants, we sometimes find him walking around with them rolled up to his knees.
It’s never awkward.
