Sunday Photo Fun!

While the boys were out working in the yard, I decided to have a little photo session with Brielle before I started processing orders and getting information packets ready for mailing. I found this really cool black distressed ‘cottage chair’ at a local antique shop and had to see how it would be for pics (although from the pics I posted below, you can’t really see the chair). Anyway, I was in too much of a hurry to take B to an outdoor location for a shoot so we just did a few in the house.
I let her choose what tutu she wanted to wear, and she choose the red petticoat. She sat very sweetly in the chair but then suddenly decided that she wanted to strip off everything and put on her Dora underwear – which she readily found in her armoire (how does she know where I’ve put them?). Now it looks like we’re potty training today since she won’t put on a diaper. So far so good… but we’ll see what the day holds :)
Anyway, I was playing around with one of the images and vintagized it (like that word?).
Okay, now I’ve got to get back to my very long to-do list. :)

I LOVE your “vintageizing”!!!

Teamwork! Yard Transformation…

Our yard needed some serious lushness (I know, that’s not a real word)! It we have a lot of yard and not a lot of bushes, trees, etc. So we’re adding a lot of greenery and some architectural details…two arbors and white picket fencing. Jeff has been working from dawn till dusk on the weekends on the yard and Tyler has been his little helper. Here’s a couple pics of Tyler finding worms, and these ugly white bugs – he’s collecting them in a bucket ;-)
And there’s one of Jeff being goofy – jumping on the shovel at the end of the day.

We’re finally starting to get healthy again in our house! I’m so relieved the kids are getting over their colds and I’m sure they are too!! It’s been a lengthy one too…poor kiddos. Now Tyler has gotten into the habit of coming down to our room at about 1am and quietly tapping me on the shoulder asking if he can sleep with us. I open the covers and let him stay for just a few minutes… okay more like 30 minutes, but that’s it – I have a hard time sleeping when he’s in bed with me fearing I’m going to nudge him off our tall bed. Then I walk him (and sometimes carry him if he’s really feeling rotten) to his room and I lie with him for a while until I know he’s asleep. It’s so cute, he loves having his back rubbed before bed. I wake him up in the morning by rubbing his back too… I think it soothes him. Anyway, if he’s awake and hears me getting ready to leave after taking him back to his room, he’ll whisper, “Can you rub my back for ‘one’ minute before you go”. And of course I do…
Gosh, I hate that I haven’t made a post in so long! I’ve been a busy mom, photographer, wife, and nurse (to my kidlets) ;-)
Today, my daughter woke up from her nap asking to wear something ‘so pretty’. I showed her the closet full of tutu’s (pink, red, white, more red, more white…) and she saw the pink petticoat and assured me that was the one she wanted to wear.
She was playing with her little pink elephant on the bottom step of the stairs in our house when I took these pics. Gasp… she actually looked at me and smiled even with a camera in my hand (she usually waits until the camera is out of sight). I was amazed – maybe she’s starting to like my camera… We played for a while on the step, she fed me pretend apples, and showed me her pretend animals. When it was time to take off her petti and get her brother from school, the tears began. Hence the picture below… the one of her standing by the stairs is when she was trying to get away to avoid taking off her petti. The other one, melts me with her big teary filled eyes.
I’ll post more pics soon from sessions and of big brother.
