It's not always easy

I have no problem getting a decent pic of each kid by themselves.

Last weekend I just wanted to take One Simple picture of the kids together with their pumpkins from Papa.

Sometimes, when they're together, I luck out & get a good shot of the both, looking at the camera with their beautiful eyes wide open while showing off their perfect little teeth with big smiles.m when ,

But then Lately, I don't.

Click below to see my attempts. And guess what?! There's sound!!!

Happy Wednesday

Not much longer for the weekend, we're ALMOST there

Some Fall Fun

I had this all cool with the Peanuts song from the Great Pumpkin movie, it was great. I was so proud of myself.

For whatever reason, it won't play right, so I had to remove the music.

Feel free to turn your radio up.

Turning it in.

Saturday - I cracked my windshield on the highway.

Sunday - I backed into a post at the gas station.

Monday - I'll be turning in my license. I give up.

Friday Flashback 10-16-09

I have lots to post about - I really do.

My job is changing
Dan's job is going well
Had my first parent/teacher conference as a result of a poorly behaved 4 year old
Audrey is growing up
We've done fall activities
We've had fair gigs

I have some good pictures of life.

But Today's Friday, so it's Friday Flashback day.

I took this a year ago:

The real picture is actually boring & gross.

I just didn't capture it the way I wanted. So in comes Photoshop. Yes, the saturation level could be a tad strong, but it's my picture, it's my computer, I have the power.

Straight out of the camera:

Gross huh?

Photoshop is our friend:

Branded does the Robot Song

There's one place the band plays that I can take the kids to if I'm feeling up for the adventure. When they go, Nathaniel insists they play the Robot song.

I'm sure they guys Love it.

What started as this:

Random moments

Here's another video, just some random stuff. This is from 9-23-09.

Pay attention at 00:40 seconds. I fell off the chair I was sitting on while attempting to discreetly back up.

Lil' Kickers

From the first week of soccer, 9-12-09

Thursday, October 1, 2009


We used to have gymnastics on Saturday mornings, then in the summer, it moved to Thursday nights. Then soccer started on Saturdays so we stuck with Thursday night weekly gymnastics. There used to be 5 kids, it slowly dwindled down to just Nathaniel. So now he gets a private lesson each week. It's been amazing for him.

We started him in gymnastics because he was so timid with us on the playground. He was afraid to do everything. He'd say: I can't do that. I need help. Hold my hand.

We're not talking on the big slide either.

At some point, maybe on a cold winter's night, I'll post a video from months ago. It's nothing compared to the video below.

I've exceeded my weekly limit on Vimeo to upload videos. I tried YouTube this time and now it's stalling on my screen. Might be good to click play, walk away while it loads, then come back and start it over. I give up.
