Scavenger Hunt -- Halloween

It was a little wild trying to get a photo of them all at once. 

We all felt very welcomed when we arrived at Aunt J's for dinner and "trick or treating."

Nobody has more adventure than Link from the gazillion Zelda games my boys love.

Sunflower's fairy wings and her pumpkin were a vibrant pink.

Surely everyone knows the Mathemagician from the children's classic "The Phantom Tollbooth."  Well, I didn't either, but the kids enjoyed making the costume a great deal.

And a gratuitous picture of my Sweet Little Lamb:
I hope everyone had a safe and Happy Halloween.  I am still enjoying the fruits of my children's labor.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

On Tuesday we went to the pumpkin patch.  You gotta love those sunny, fall days.  I'm glad we went when we did because it has been raining ever since.  So here is my hunt from the patch...

I love the patterns all the pumpkins made around the farm.

I think water pumps are one of the oldest and simplest of machines, but oh, so nice to have.

Signs or Logos:
My two little pumpkins at the patch...the boys were at school.

Rocks or Stones:
Sweet Pea loves picking up little rocks...and eating them.  This time she gave them to me, a much better choice.

The sparkle of the pumpkin bokeh?  It's the best I have sticking to the pumpkin patch theme.

It was fun to play along again and have an opportunity for a little more creative edits.  Have a most fabulous Sunday!

Wee Wittle Wednesday

I haven't had much time for anything but my wee wittle ones, but a grand time it has been.  My girls constantly amaze me.  But this is the photo blog so...

Sweet Pea

At Sunflower's preschool there is a giant, child-height mirror that Sweet Pea loves to look at herself in.  So at home, in the hour before we went back to pick up Sunflower, I thought it would be a good morning to play with our own mirror.
 Oh, what is this?
The shots were different than what I was planning in my head, but Sweet Pea looks adorable no matter what I do.
This is where I discovered if I hop up and down, Sweet Pea will start laughing.  It is hard to get the timing just right...hop, hop, hop...stand still and snap the photo while she is still sometimes focus ends up not being just quite right, but I love her little teeth.
I love her expression in this one, but I did decided I had to change to a wider lens.
The drool is because she decided it was snack time, not photo time.  Get me some food and I'll play some more, Mama.
Don't you dare touch my food.  I promise I was only trying to put it on the table so she wouldn't carry it around and spill it.
For 15 minutes she carried it quite carefully, never spilling it.  But she would not settle on a spot.
Until it spilled, but that didn't phase her.  One in the bowl, one in the mouth, one in the bowl...
We'll just pick them up, Mama, and then you can hop some more.
the long road

Scripture and a Snapshot

Our sermon at church and our study in Bible study has been on Acts and the growth of the early church.  It lead to the discussion of how it should be a natural part of our lives to share our faith because He is such an integral part of our life.  And yet it is so hard.

It is hard to keep Christ at the center.  It is hard to spend consistent time with Him.  It is hard to do what is right.  It is hard to do good works that others may see.  It is hard to let His light shine through us.

But to glorify our Father who is in heaven is a wonderful motivation.  Thank God for the power of the Holy Spirit that shines even when we are not.

Texture Tuesday - Orange

Taking a little time today to work on photos.  It brings me rest and peace in the midst of chaos.

Wittle Wednesday

Sunflower is so proud of being a big sister...

Sweet Pea is still a little uncertain about things...particularly this swift moving preschooler...

But I promise we don't let her hit her big sister (or brothers) with sticks...
Not even for photo-ops.

Scavenger Hunt Sunday

I'm already short and sweet.

 We told him camouflage works better if your outfit is ALSO monochromatic.

Starts with the Letter...
A is for apple

Upside Down:

I have millions of photos of her that are all the about the hair.  This one is from this week.

I tried a soft focus/out of focus when out on a night photography walk with my friends.  I wish I could link you to their captures of the evening.  They were amazing.  Plus it was fun.

Have a good Monday :)

Wittle People Wednesday

I have so, so many pictures of my Wittle People right now that I want to share.  I've already saturated facebook and my other blog, so this meme fits right into my need to take pictures of my beautiful babies--Okay, so Sunflower turned 4, and Sweet Pea is 1 and not so wittle--but here goes anyway.

I try to get photos of them together, but most end up with it either appearing Sunflower is choking Sweet Pea or Sweet Pea crying--or both.  I do not know how often in the last 3 months I have said: back off, give her space, listen to her cues, let go, and yes, Sweet Pea does love you.
