  2. Little Scribes

    March 15, 2011 by sholdren

    I am so excited to announce that “Little Scribes”, the app my brother, Andrew Hoyer, and I have been working on for the last few weeks, is now available on the iTunes App Store! It is compatible with the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

    Little Scribes is a delightful flashcard app for kids, with a biblical theme. Each and every flashcard relates to a story in the Bible, which gives parents a great opportunity to teach their young children about the Bible, in a fun and exciting way! Kids who have used this app have shown great enthusiasm, and are interested in seeing the flashcards over and over.

    Andrew Hoyer is the app developer, and I did the artwork. It was a lot of fun to create, and I hope you really enjoy it!

  3. keepsakes

    March 9, 2011 by sholdren

    Sorry I haven’t made a post in a long time! I’ve been busy for over a month, working on the artwork for an iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch App that my brother, Andrew Hoyer, programmed. Also, I’ve been updating my business website, since there will be a link to it from the App. So, I haven’t had a whole lot of free time. But the app should be out on the iTunes Store this week, and I’ll let you know all about it then, and you can check it out for yourself!

    But for now, here is a picture of Brianna holding my old Cabbage Patch doll! I was going through her closet and getting out all the old baby stuff, and I had my Cabbage Patch on the closet shelf. She thought it was neat. 🙂

    Here is a little video I did of Silas in the kitchen. He practices counting, abc’s, naming letters, drawing, and naming shapes. It wasn’t planned or anything, as you can tell by the nutella that’s still on his face. 🙂

    Silas has recently taken an interest in happy faces. He’ll ask me to draw them for him on paper, or even with chalk on the driveway.

    I was quite shocked a few days ago, though, when I looked at one of his drawings he did on the Paint program while sitting at my computer. He had drawn a few faces! I am so excited about this. It is so intriguing to see his skills progressing.

    How many faces can you see?

  6. happy mother’s day

    May 10, 2009 by sholdren

    Happy Mother’s Day, everyone! I hope you all had a lovely day. We did!

    Us after church today. We couldn’t get both kids to look at the camera.

    In Sunday school today, Silas made a lovely little frame with a drawing of him in it that he colored. He gave it to me in a cute little gift bag that he decorated, which also contained some Hershey kisses. It was so funny, cuz I opened my present from him during the song service, when he brought it to me at my pew, and when I did, he reached in the gift bag, grabbed one of the Hershey kisses, unwrapped it, and ate it.

    The Mother’s Day gift Silas gave me. It’s magnetic, so I put it on my fridge. I will cherish it forever.

    P.S. My kids are the best!

  7. bedtime story mystery – SOLVED!

    March 24, 2009 by sholdren

    Okay everyone, here is the answer:

    I took three photographs of Brian and Silas reading the bedtime story. There was only one where Silas was smiling, and I wanted to post that pic. But, Brian had a funny expression on his face in that pic, so he didn’t want me to post it. So, I cut his head out of one of the other pics where he looked normal, and stuck it on the pic where Silas is smiling.

  8. bedtime story mystery

    March 22, 2009 by sholdren

    Tonight Brian read Silas his bedtime stories. The first two books were very short, and they were about a duck and a teddy bear, whose names are Duck and Teddy. The last book he read is called “I Love You, Daddy”. I wonder why Brian decided to read that one?

    Brian reading Silas a bedtime story tonight. Silas even read one of the books himself!

    *** By the way, I photoshopped the picture above. Can you tell me what is changed from the original photo? (Hint: It’s not color or contrast changes, it’s an actual cut-and-paste.) ***

    One of Silas’ latest endeavors is playing with Paint on the computer. I showed him how to use it, and I was surprised how well he did!

    Here is Silas cheering for himself after I told him what a good job he did.

    This is Silas’ artwork. Basically the only thing I drew on here is the “3” on the left side, to show him how to draw, and I also switched the colors for him. 🙂
