Some Rambling

It's been snowing a lot here lately, as I'm sure it is in other places too.  Lucy's new favorite activity is sledding, so we've been out sledding quite a bit already.  Well, Lucy and Chuck go sledding, and I watch them.  I've been down a couple times but I'm afraid of falling belly first in the snow, I feel so huge sometimes.  So I stand at the top, drink coffee if I brought some, and snap pics if I brought the camera.

Look at that concentration, and that cute tongue.  Wish I would have gotten more of my hubs in the shot though.
Happy be-lated birthday to Chuck, it was his birthday yesterday.  We went out to breakfast with my sister, her husband and our kids after Mass yesterday, it was real nice.  We don't go out to breakfast much anymore, but that's okay.  Breakfast is actually the easiest meal to make, for me anyway.

I also made a chocolate layer cake with peanut butter frosting, per Chuck's request.  I think it turned out alright, considering I made it with pie pans and not cake pans.  Okay, enough rambling for now.

January Wedding

I've been a little busy lately editing some photos I took at a wedding this last weekend (I wasn't the wedding photog, just taking shots for fun and practice) including a little impromptu photo shoot with my nephew.

Lucy was dancing all night long, she loves to dance, but what kid doesn't?  Look at that crazy face.

Last dance of the night with her daddy, getting a little tired and winding down...

Even more tired...

Completely exhausted and ready for bed.  

Post photos of my nephew soon, he is the cutest.

Linking with deb duty for this or that thursday.

I Heart Faces: Best Face of 2011


Love everything about this shot of my daughter that I took this past summer!   It's just so fun (and actually in focus).

Edit Me

Original photo by Sarah from Naptime Momtog


Opened in Picnik to basic edits-sharpen-clarity-15%.  Cropped a little, then went to effects and changed to black and white.  Boost color to 15%.  Adjustable threshold-overly-50%.  Tint-coral color-screen-50%.  Reduced noise in my Windows 7 program and then sharpened a bit.

100 Days Left

I have exactly 100 days left to go!


It's kinda hard to take a belly shot with a 50 mm f/1.8 lens, but I was too lazy to put on a wider lens.  
Happy Tuesday!
