Hunter's Senior Pictures

I finished processing Hunter's senior pictures.  

I'm pleased with all of them, but the black and white one above is probably my favorite.  

I really like how his eyes pop in this one.  

I can't wait to get my camera out and take more!

An Extra Fun Day of Sledding

 The hubby and I, our kids, and a bunch of friends met up at Bemis Hill in the Beltrami State Forest for a day of sledding.  It was amazing.

The kids had a great time.

And so did the adults.  (Yes, that is my husband, a friend, and my brother riding shovels down the hill.)

I think my brother had the most fun of all.  He's a big man-child.

After the 40+ degree weather expected this week, this was our last opportunity to enjoy the snow.  I am so glad we went!  It (almost) makes me look forward to next winter.

Another Fun Photo Shoot!

I had the pleasure of taking one-year photos for Brodix.

He is such a wonderfully busy little busy little guy!  We got a few family shots in, but he tried his best to escape.

We were able to contain him for a few more traditional shots, but the one above is my favorite.  He'd take a run for it at any opportunity.

And I just love the picture below.  He looks like he is leading his fellow babies into battle, so I made it into a little meme.

An Old Favorite

I took this picture last summer, and it's one of my favorites.

It was one of the few times that she was still enough to get a nice picture!Most of my pictures of her look something like this:

She's a bit of a busy bee.

Fun Family Photos

I have a blank spot on the wall of my new house.  I thought it would be fun to take some picture of my kids this weekend for this particular spot, and we got some pretty fun results!

I ordered prints, and I look forward to getting them on the wall!

This is why I am going to officially be the best mom ever this Christmas.


Yep, I got one for each person in the family -- even me and the hubby.

This is going to be great.

So, I'm a little late, but here are some pictures of our Halloween adventures.

 I love Halloween.

My kids love Halloween, too. 

Of course, their love of Halloween might have something to do with my excellent makeup application skills.  

Or, you know, the candy.

Ya, it's probably because of the candy. 

We're moving into a new house next week, which is super exciting.  I will be sure to post before and after pictures as to stun the general public with my mad decorating skills.  Or maybe just so that the friends and family can see the new place.  That works, too.

Lemonade for Sale! Frogs for Sale!

After an especially productive garage sale trip, Molly decided to have a lemonade stand yesterday.  The bait house is a perfect location for a lemonade stand, and she always does well. 

She makes her own brownies and lemonade, and must pay for the groceries out of her profits.  If she has any helpers, she must give them a wage.  This is, I have explained to her, what Grandma Mary has to do at the restaurant. I might get a little bit of resistance to this if she didn't make so much money. 

She made enough to pay me back for her groceries, for her new hamster (Toffee), and to save for a rainy day. 

Today when we were having lunch at Nana and Papa's cabin, some little boys drove by and told us, "Frogs for Sale!  25 cents!" 

Mady really thought that she should have one, but confessed to not having any money.  One of the little boys tells her, "You're in luck.  We are having a sale.  Little girls get one free." 

This is very clever for a 9 year old boy! 

So Mady got her frog.  She loved it for about half an hour, and then I made her give it back.  We didn't have anywhere to put it on our bikes, since Gracie was riding in my basket.   
We made it home before the rain hit, but not before the wind picked up.  It was a very long, very strenuous ride home.  We all agreed that we are going to have legs and buns of steel before the summer is done! 

The little ones are now having a very much needed nap and Molly is folding and putting away her freshly washed rummage sale spoils. 

The men are in the field, trying to get as much seed into the ground as possible before it's too late.  Luckily, the raid has been just a sprinkle so far, and if the weather holds, they might get almost all of it in.  I am looking forward to being done with seeding, though.  I'm reading to start landscaping the yard!
