I just like this one..

B's helping me sell some camera equipment I no longer need.. excuse the little bit of tech info on the photo.. I just wanted to post this quickly before we go for lunch- YUM, Grandma and Grandpa's.. Also, here's the deal he made with me, well here's how it went..

B: How much do I get for this?
ME: I don't know.
B: How much are you selling the lenses for?
ME: I should get a 100.00 for each.
B: So, I get $50.00 for each lens?
Me: Yeah, right.
B: $25.00?
Me: Think again.
B: Then what?
Me: How about dinner? Pizza.
B: $15.00?
Me: How about dinner? Pizza, applesauce?
B: $12.00?
Me: How about dinner? Pizza, applesauce, and a cup of milk?
Me: How about dinner? Pizza, applesauce, a cup of milk and ice cream with whipped topping?
B: money?
Me: How about dinner? Pizza, applesauce, a cup of milk ice cream and an EXTRA scoop of ice cream and whipped topping?
B: Okay..

So this picture and others cost me an extra scoop of ice cream in his bowl..

Out of the ones I took showing the lens at different aps, I just loved the quirkiness..(Is that a word?)..

Have a great day..

My Easter Lily..

For Easter I received a BEAUTIFUL Easter Lily. Thank You to my Secret Sister, I have enjoyed the scent and beauty of the lily. So I'm NOT a macro flower photographer, but I thought I'd try. So here she is : My Easter Lily.I still have to take another image of the full size Lily, wasn't paying too close attention to the background and I'm not happy with them..will try again tomorrow..

Have a great day..

Went for a drive..

Grandpa and Grandma R. took us out for a little drive today..we drove by a neat place for pictures. I've taken some there before for others, but never purposely with my own children.. I really want to go back when it gets warm..WHEN it gets warm, I said. Today the sky was absolutely beautiful (at times) and made you 'think' it was summer, but NOPE, it's still only spring. SOON, soon though..

These really aren't my favorites, I just pull them off the card in random order.. I will say, I just adore the one of Little J's hair blowing in the wind.. Didn't think he had that much hair, now I guess I know..

Eye contact is OVER-rated, right? You can get smiles on all 3 but eye contact, who needs it? ME, I HEART eye contact...but I still love this, as I like seeing closeness of them. They all sat down and got close. Now either they really like each other or they were just cold. Hmm, I think they like each other.

Thanks for looking today..

He can JUMP...

We took 4 of these jumping shots, then he got tired.. This was the first one, the next frame he is looking at me, but unfortunately he's out of focus and those branches are IN focus..the other two he wasn't as this was the only keeper..

This one is much 'cooler' in color but I kind of liked it like that so I didn't color correct.

His idea for pictures today. He said it was nice day and I could take them, and then was like and when we're done, can I have a piece of candy. Um yeah..

Have a great day..

Just one..

This is B and E. E is our niece and she is 4 months younger than B. A couple summers ago, we went camping and several times people mistook these two for twins. Their dark hair, ADORABLE faces and obvious closeness in age is surely why. Mommy/Aunt goggles or whatever it may be, I just love this. E was excited to hear we would be visiting today and enjoyed playing with the boys (poor girl, ONLY has male cousins- both sides of her family ONLY have BOYS!!)..

Thanks for peeking..


Picture Overload..

So, the boys did decorate/color eggs. Simply for fun. And fun Baby J did have. I haven't had the time to go through all the pictures but here are a few and a couple extras not egg decorating related. I need to resize the last one of the day Saturday, as it is Baby J SCREAMING at D for pulling away his cup of 'egg color''s pretty funny..

Check out those little boy nails and green egg dye..Blech..
I was playing with the light earlier in the day..

In this one Baby J kept riding his toy under the table/ he thought he was hiding from my camera..HAHA, you can run from it but you can't hide..the 'blurred bars' on the sides of the frame are my kitchen chairs..

Will post more later..

One Guess...

What did he just do??



Something I don't get to shoot often..(sounds like I'm a hunter, eh?)

Another little girl..this time a baby..she's 9 months old, well her Grandma informed me, 9 months tomorrow..

And, because you probably have missed seeing my own kiddos these last few's Baby J with an expression I don't really see too often..but hey, not matter what face he's making he's a cutie..and he now calls me 'MOMMY'..I'm no longer Mama. Where oh where is my baby going?

It seems these past 2 months, he's saying so much more. Before he said 'huh' for thank you, now he can say thank you. He's carrying on real conversations with you. Ask him questions, he'll answer them. He'll 'read' himself a story- most of the time it's about Haha (Curious George)..of course if you ask him his name, he'll tell you, "Me name is Zippy." He just loves the pup..

Just one..

The last time I did a picture like this was when Baby J was just a tiny baby...I'll have to try to find it. All the boys are pictured in that one...they kind of look like a wagon wheel.. For now, here's just Baby J and L..

Snow and water puddles..

Moms of boys know they love water puddles..Baby J is no exception... He enjoyed walking through them, jumping in them and then walking some more..

He also enjoyed trying to 'mow' the snow..

And since those ones didn't show his 'happy' face, here's one of those too..

This one of 'L' was in our van waiting on Grandma in the store..said she was running in for a few things and came out with 6 bags.. L needs to teach Grandma how to count..

A baby boy with smile...

I enjoyed spending some time on Saturday with this gorgeous little boy.. and check out that cute 3 month old smile.. and the little peak at me from behind his blanket..

Have a great day..


Saturday, March 15, 2008

Yeah, I think he LOVES me..and I love him..

So, L came to me the other day asking if I wanted to take his picture. Said he'd get his coat on and a hat and he'd be outside..Um, I answered him quickly and ran after the door behind him. It's not everyday they want to be captured all 'posed' style..

And, though I do enjoy looking at the 'posed' stuff, these last two, are my favorites.. A little boy, doing what a little boy does - They have FUN..

Thanks for peaking..
