My two girls interpret this holiday so differently and the practice rounds have begun..Here is where we are in our practice runs….
Youngest loves cute and fun Halloween costumes, this year she’s leaning towards being a deer…
She wanted to practice her look so this is our first attempt..we’ve got some ideas on how to tweak it but she was happy :)
Oldest, on the other hand, loves to scare the living daylights out of me every year with her affinity for horror. When she was younger she decided to take over her own Halloween makeup because Mom makeup wasn’t scary enough. Her sister even told her she had to change her makeup because even though she knew it was not real the makeup freaked her out…years later we’ve got the same problem since Oldest has only gotten better at her own makeup..
This year she wants to be “Bloody Mary”
and she has started a makeup tutorial blog to share her talent! Make sure you swing by to check it out!
Happy Halloween Month :)
63° and sunny with nothing on the required agenda…doesn’t get any better!
Today was the last day of school :)
This works for this week’s a year in song theme “I’ve Got the Magic In Me” from Pitch Perfect. Love the movie, the song, and these magical children! So proud of my beautiful ladies :) HAPPY SUMMER!
This morning we went to pick blackberries for the first time. My DH decided to liven things up a bit by bombarding Youngest with berries…she of coursed jumped right on that and a brief war commenced! Oldest got caught in the crossfire every once in awhile :)
This fit the week 22 theme for the TPWP52 challenge~
“You are the Sunshine in my Life”
Have a great week!!
But swim season has started!
I’ve been so busy that my camera has been neglected, luckily all of the “major projects” I was involved in at work have finished up so it was fun to take a few shots of the girls after I finished my am timer shift :).
School will be out shortly, we’re all counting down to the lazy days of summer!!
“You will never do anything in this world without courage. It is the greatest quality of the mind next to honor.”
Thank you to all those that gave everything to protect us.
Love my little Gardner :) She does beautiful work!
This months blog theme was “Games”. Here is an image of youngest playing the Texas History Game her teacher set up..she gets extra credit for taking her picture at any historic Texas landmark holding her “Hi Teacher!” sign :) so over Spring Break we set out to play at the Birthplace of Texas.
The Meeting Room to Draft the Declaration of Texas Independence
The Declaration of Independence from Mexico
The Tree that saw the Whole Story!
Thanks for stopping by our “game”. Check out how Keli was involved in this month’s theme!
Although I’m behind I’m trying to catch up! The week 6 theme comes from Elton John’s Your Song:
“Yours are the sweetest eyes I’ve ever seen”
Both my girls have beautiful, expressive eyes….definitely the sweetest I’ve ever seen :)
Oldest bought herself a new camera with her birthday money so she has been my companion on some recent photo walks :). Since I’m spending time explaining to her I am not really taking pictures myself, however today I decided to just use my cell phone as she was doing her thing…
It was a great reminder of the idea that the best camera is the one you have with you!
Here is a shot Oldest caught of the pup and I discussing why it would be a very bad idea to jump into the creek ;)
It is great to see Oldest grow in photography …. the pup appreciates the walk venues ….so it was a win for all involved:)
