Out of Character

Wow! I just realized that this is the third post this week. Very much out of character for me. I just figured that i should post some shots that I took of Eden while we were out with Emily. This little stink would not look at my camera though. I don't know what her deal was. I also had to fight against the "perma-grin", which is her fake smile that she pulls out when she needs to smile. Don't get me wrong, it's cute, but not a very natural look. I was only able to get a couple of decent shots of her. Oh well...that's a 3 year old for you. The last one I included just because it was kind of cool. Also, for some reason, the photos seem darker on the blog post than in Lightroom....I don't know why.

Growing Fast

One of my best friends, Emily, was in town again for a little visit. So, of course we took advantage of that and took her little girl out for a little photo shoot. If you check this blog regularly, you'll remember her and her cute chubby cheeks. She is growing so fast now though. Walking and going going going. She is such a sweet little girl. Always so happy. It was great to have Emily it town again, especially because we were able to get together a number of times to just hang out. Thanks, Em! I hope you like the photos. By the way, my fav. is the second one down. It is very processed in Lightroom, but I love the look of it...what do you think?

Work, Schmerk

Let's see....clean the house, play with the kids? Clean the What do you think the answer is the majority of the time? It's no wonder we have so many unfinished projects around here.

This totally brings back memories of when I was a kid and my Mom would yell at us for sliding down the stairs on a sleeping bag. So, what would we do??? Wait 'till she was gone and bust out the sleeping bag. Sorry, Mom! The best mode of transport was this long, orange sleeping pad that filled up with air. We would pile on there like we were on a sled and bend the front back to hold us on, then we were off like little laughing rockets. Not much has changed I guess, except now I'm ruining my own carpet and my Mom does not get to hollar at me about it. As you can see, I'm not too attached to my carpet.
*Obviously, these photos are as straight out of the camera as they come. I'm a little too lazy right now to go get my photo program that needs to be re-loaded onto my laptop. So, this will have to do.
