Some nature shots (Day 166)

Evening without kids (Day 165)

Kids were with the grandparents, we went into town, caught a show and stayed in a swanky hotel. Way nice to even read the paper the next has been 3 years since I got to read the whole paper!

Halloween in Kansas (Wait...Texas!) (Day 164)

Halloween evening...just before trick or treating.

Macro practice (Day 161)

The Kids (Day 161)

Not so bad...I need to work on color and lighting...much more to learn then I expected, I guess! I had to adjust some stuff off camera, which I never do, so this is a learning experience.

And my first shot out of the box, fully manual...

Not bad for a third shot (OK, you don't need to see the second!)

And had to throw in one of the boy!

E and the pot (Day 158)

OK, really, that should have been pots! You leave the kid alone for 30 seconds and look what he, the boy is trying to get his career as an Iron Chef going, I guess!

MIL's Invites (Day 157)

My SIL and I have been planning this party for my MIL's 65th birthday, and I am doing the invitations. I LOVE how they turned out and can not wait to mail them Monday...for today, though, you all get to see them!

These will go in a vellum envelope with this part showing in the back.

This is the inside...ribbon comes off and shows the invite info.

My boy (Day 156)

OK, I have not posted in ages. Life just gets in the way...but I am determined to get back to this, and today seems a good day to start. My baby, my last baby, turns ONE today. As of 4.21p, September 13, 2007 Ethan Louis is one year old. He is crusing like crazy, being cute as can be. He has taken a few steps, but no walking. He has mastered the stairs, crawls and pulls up to everything. He loves being outside, taking toys his sister wants and just being a one year old. He can say Mama, Daddy, I think doggy, Nana (Anna) yeah (and sometimes yes)and naanaa (banana). He flips out if you take a toy away from him (espically if it is something he was not supposed to have in the first place!) He is strong willed, into everything and amazing to watch. Making him frustrated is, well, cute. And after a year with this little bundle of love, I can not imagine life any other way.! Yup, had to be cake!
