Night Pictures

Just a quick post to say, I forgot how much I love night photography.  I haven't done night pictures in a while, and it was really fun.  It would have been a bit easier if I didn't have children to chase and had brought my tripod, but it was still fun.

It wants to Eat Us!

Okay, not really.  After lifting Peanut's bike to put it away, I found a praying mantis underneath.  It completely freaked me out at first, and I had oogie feelings every time I looked at it (darn those bugs, they look too intelligent.  I swear they are plotting something evil when I see them), but I had to grab my camera and snap a picture.  My husband quickly called the girls back outside so they could see it, and we couldn't help but crack up at the poor bug.  Anytime one of us moved, it turned toward the mover and spread its "praying hands" to try to intimidate it.  I think it was contemplating using the finishing move from the original Karate Kid on us.

Special Guest Picture

I had to post this because I love it so much. No, it's not a photograph, and no, it's not even my own art.  My six year old daughter drew this picture, and every time I look at it, it warms my heart.  I love the baby in the arms of one of the ladies, and  the looks of the people who are singing at church, and the rosy cheeks on two people, and the one person who isn't quite asleep in bed.  I love that she drew hymnals.  Yes, go ahead and call this the "Mommy goggles" or  "Proud Mommy" post.
