Happy Halloween!

Well, friends, All Hallow's Eve is upon us again. Here is a look back at the last couple of Halloweens:

Last night, we finally got around to decorating that pumpkin we picked up from Owens Farm. We decided to use the same technique as last year and put stickers on our pumpkin for decoration. Here are some photos from that endeavor:

He was really telling me something here.

IMG_9404-2.jpg
I don't remember what. 
Oh wait - maybe it was "don't take my picture"

IMG_9405-2.jpg
Silly boy, OF COURSE I'm going to take your picture.

IMG_9407-2.jpg
Even if I don't pay attention to where the dang focus is...

IMG_9408-2.jpg
Watch the focus Mommy!

IMG_9412-2.jpg
You will see we still had quite a stash of foam stickers, left from last year.
And they all had to be dumped on the table for the project to commence.

Can you tell I'm getting used to a new lens? 
Well, I am.

I should also mention they had trick-or-treating at his school yesterday.
He was very fond of that activity, I'm sure you can imagine.

IMG_9423-2.jpg
I had to explain several times how this works.
In that MOMMY has control of this candy and when it gets eaten.

IMG_9426-2.jpg
COMPLETE control...as you can tell from this photo.

Suckers are his favorite.

And right here in this spot I was going to give you a preview of LM's 2012 outfit - but I have now realized I somehow didn't upload it. So...you'll see it when I post about tonight's festivities. 

I hope y'all have a fabulous Halloween!

See you soon.

Funny Faces

I bought some cute felt glasses and mustaches that I thought would be fun to use as photo props. LM helped me check them out the other day. This was the day before my good camera returned, so I took these with my old camera, and made he really love my new camera more. Yes, that's right, the new camera is back! And, the entire viewfinder assembly has been replaced. So, I wasn't going crazy. It WAS broken, so I'm so glad I sent it in. OK, anyway, on to the photos:

IMG_9274-2.jpg
Here we go - this is what I'm talking about.
Photo gold, right?

Oh but let's go back to those BLUE ones!

IMG_9337-2.jpg
Didja get that one Mama?

IMG_9338-2.jpg
'cause if not, I can put them on again!

IMG_9341-2.jpg

IMG_9346-2.jpg
Um, maybe those are upside down, baby.

IMG_9350-2.jpg
He kept closing his eyes. I would say, "Open your eyes!" 
And I would get this...

IMG_9352-2.jpg
Oh come on Mommy, you're fibbin'.

IMG_9357-2.jpg
How's this look?

IMG_9374-2.jpg
Are we done here?

IMG_9379-2.jpg
Well, YOU might be done, baby.

IMG_9375-2.jpg
Yeah, about that - Mom, quit while you're ahead. 
I'm WAAAYYYY cuter.

I might not post much the rest of the week - busy life getting in the way. But, I will post as I can, and get back on track soon. If I don't, I get behind, sister. So, you know, we don't want that!

See you soon.
