Sargie came in from the frigid 0 degree weather this morning with frozen drool on his face. Nice!

Day 31



Another of my little man. I'm sorry that all I've been posting is of my kids, but hey, they are all I've got right now! So deal people. Here's the info:

50mm
F/1.8
1/200
ISO 100

I used curves to boost the color and I sharpened his eyes, that's about it. Oh and I used Derelicte from TRA at about 15% or so.

Day 30

I just love this boy's face here. He is such a ham.

This was my first experience shooting in raw. I've heard rave reviews about shooting in RAW and I just haven't managed to switch the settings on my camera. I like the versatility with shooting in RAW though. I'm not a fan of the noise in the picture, but I had to up the ISO a bit earlier in the day to get a good exposure and forgot to change it when I took this. Ooops. I won't be using that high of an ISO again unless I have to. Here are the details:

50mm
F/1.8
1/200
ISO 800 (way too high)

To edit, I just sharpened the eyes a bit and boosted the color in curves. That's it.

Day 29

Since my kids are on a picture strike, running away from me whenever I get the camera out I had no choice but to mess around with self-ports again. This first one I'm not sure about. I messed around quite a bit in PS trying to make it somewhat funky, but not sure with the outcome. Oh well.
This one I just added some diffused glow to it and converted it to b&w. I like how my eye is the focus here.
It's very hard to get creative since I can't get much perspective taking a picture of myself. Maybe I'll pop on a different lens next time. Anyway, here's my day 28!

Day 28

My last 3 days have sucked in regards to my abilities. I haven't gotten a decent shot, let alone taken my camera out much. So, this is what it is, oh well! We can't all be perfect all the time, right?

Annika cuddling with Auntie Erin.

Day 27

Check out my skilz!

Day 26

Playing beauty shop, with a shoe. Too cute. They did this for almost an hour.

Day 25

Giving the ole' spoon and bowl a try. "Get in my mouth!"

Day 24

This is what an ear infection looks like (after motrin and the first dose of amox.) Don't worry, they are child proof.

My little rocket man!

Me in my husband's eyes!

Not sure what she's doing here!

Day 20

Annika swimming in the pool at our resort in Orlando. She could have swam all day!

Day 19

The girls got their faces painted at Disney World. Annika got Cinderall and Bianca got Minney Mouse. Too cute!

Day 18

If you click on this picture of Bianca, you can see the reflection of palm trees in her eyes. I didn't photoshop her eyes at all in this picture. The only editing I did was to get rid of some food on her chin! Her eyes were so amazing when I uploaded this picture!
Here is Annika being a "Hawaii girl". She was doing the Hula and looked so serious.

Day 14

Bianca woke up bright and early today and passed out in the car after picking Annika up from school. I brought her in and laid her on the chair fully thinking she'd wake up, but she didn't. She didn't wake up until I tried to move her to her room. Of course.

Day 13

This little girl is crafty. She always stands next to the tv when it's on. I always have to remind her not to and to go sit in her chair. Well, the little stinker moved her chair to right in front of the tv. What's my argument now? She's sitting in her chair!

Day 12

I started packing today! Only 3 days and Annika will be wearing her flip flops, or bip bops says Bianca.

Day 11

Laundry sucks. I'm lucky my husband does it the majority of the time. I swear the piles grow bigger each week though.

Friday, February 6, 2009

Day 10


My baby is learning to walk!

Thursday, February 5, 2009

Day 9

Less than a week and Bianca will be wearing this on the beaches of Florida! Yay!

Day 8

I looked out the window last night and it looked like the sky was on fire. I thought it looked pretty awesome!
