Day Twenty-nine

30 09 2008

I had to post the whole series, even though it wasn’t actually all one jump. If I had to choose just one, I think it would be the second.

Day Twenty-eight

29 09 2008

Two photos today. Zack doesn’t get much blog time because he’s always posing. It drives me crazy. He’s a handsome boy, don’t get me wrong. I just wish he would be himself for the camera.

The other photo is a game Eden made up to get Colby to laugh. She’d wait for him to stand at the bottom of the slide, then slide into giving him a hug. He loved it. Hooray for big sisters–

Day Twenty-seven

28 09 2008

I got to make a big ol’ centerpiece for a wedding today. It turned out really well–unfortunately, my pictures weren’t so hot. Guess I need to work on the whole taking-pictures-of-flowers business.

And in other news–wasn’t President Uchtdorf’s talk tonight fabulous? It was exactly what I needed to hear.

Day Twenty-six

27 09 2008

Spent a lot of time in the garage today while the kids were riding bikes. Canned these with my dear friend Tami a few weeks ago. There’s nothing quite like a row of home-canned goods for beauty.

Day Twenty-five

26 09 2008

It was Back to School night tonight, and tomorrow is off for a teacher work day. Party! Party! Party! (See Mo Willems’s “I am Invited to a Party” for further enlightenment on this subject.)

We are having a movie night, watching “The Love Bug.” The kids are (no pun intended) loving it.

Zack is blurred because he’s jumping up and down with excitement during one of the races–

Day Twenty-four

25 09 2008

This is cheating a little bit–I took this several days ago, so it isn’t really from today. However, Stan took the camera to work and just got back and I’m pretty much all in. So recycled from another day is all we get. I can’t believe October is next week. Insane.

Day Twenty-three

24 09 2008

I had big plans to take some fun photos at the mall today, but I ended up being too busy kid wrangling. I only took three, hurriedly, while holding Colby before the carousel started, and I didn’t think any of them worked out. This ended up being a pleasant surprise.
I blogged about how wonderful the Rexburg carousel is last month, and was sighingly nostalgic on the ride today. Sure, they had a chicken, a cat, a rooster, and a dragon to ride on, but it was entirely too smooth. Give me a little shudder here and there–that’s realistic. Like a real beast quivering underneath you–careful, keep your seat! That one’s got a wild streak in him, but he’ll settle down if you have a firm hand on the reins. Show him who’s boss. Yee-ha!

Day Twenty-two

Day Twenty-one

22 09 2008

Stan took this shot. It was a long, hard Sunday. Worthy of snoozing in the Jell-o.

Day Twenty

21 09 2008

I hadn’t taken any pictures at all today, so I ended up roaming around the house at 9 pm looking for shots. I found more than I thought I would–my biggest problem with photography is light, and nighttime is, you know, dark. Anyway, I had a hard time deciding what to use. I don’t know that the reason is because there were so many good shots, rather a lot of medium ones without a standout. So. Hope everybody’s having a good weekend.

I had to put this shot of Stan in–his most-recent favorite thing: noise cancelling headphones. I was talking to him the other day and realized he wasn’t exactly attending. “Can you really not hear, or are you just ignoring me?” I stared at him for almost a full minute before he lifted one ear up and said, “Huh?” Definitely a lifesaver when you’re working from home and the four-ring circus is playing about your ankles. Just no wife-ignoring, please.
