We are settling in nicely here in Hillsboro, and unlike many of the locals who dread the long rainy winter I am so far enjoying the weather. All I have to tell myself is that rain is better than snow and it’s easy to have a positive outlook on the rainy days. Days like these are perfect for sitting around in your pajamas all day and baking; both of which I have been doing a lot of lately.
It occurred to me the other day that I really hadn’t taken many pictures of my own family lately. It’s sad, but since taking up photography I guess I don’t take the time to capture all those silly moments I normally would with a point and shoot in hand. It’s my new goal to take some at least every week, if not more often. I have THOUSANDS of images of my oldest as a baby, and I feel guilty looking at the images I have taken of my youngest. Granted, my standards and skills have changed since my oldest was that age and I don’t need to take as many to get the shot I want anymore. This also means, though, that I pass up some of those hilarious candid moments I might have caught by accident before and kept even though it was way out of focus or whatever. With that in mind I want to share a few from today….. It was no small feat to get my youngest to sit still long enough to get a “normal” shot, and I was about to give up entirely, but I am glad I didn’t because his crazy personality really shows in these images and I know I will look back on them years from now and smile. My oldest, as you can tell, is also full of personality, and wanted to look like a mean vampire lol.
So without further adieu, here are my silly little guys, doing what they do best.
and as you can see, it’s not all smiles when mom’s camera comes out, but this is also a perfect example of Archer’s personality lol.
Just a little late, but I have been having computer issues this past week. Anyway, here are some quick snaps of my family for Perrin’s Halloween Birthday Party. He turned 4 on the 30th! It was a lot of fun!
Here is the birthday boy himself…
I had told him to make a “mean face” in this one lol.
The two cutest little boys in the whole world!
Me and the kids…
That’s it. Thanks for looking! And Happy Halloween a little late!
Family friends who are really more like our own family, the Calloways are an adorable family for sure! These were more shots from our son’s Halloween/b-day party. The older kids were kind enough to dress in costume, making my husband and I feel a little less silly being the only others besides my son to dress up for the party.
