Yesterday’s prompt from Capture Your 365 was silhouette. I tried my hand at one the other week(see here). It is something that I need more practice at but I enjoy trying.
The window in our bedroom seems to be a favorite spot for our youngest daughter. The sun was getting pretty low in the sky so I thought I would try a silhouette of her while she was hanging out.
If you’d like, check out my post from 3 years ago. Same sweet little girl, same window. She’s just a little taller now.
Today when I got home from the store, I saw this huge spider in my holly bush. It was pretty scary looking I took a picture of it before I killed it. Did a Google search on spider types and found it. The name of the spider is St Andrews Cross Spider. I was happy to read that it is a non-toxic spider. They also mention that it is considered beneficial because the large webs catch flying insects like flies and mosquitoes. Um….It my be beneficial but I really don’t I want them hanging around my house.
Fall is my favorite season of the year. I love the crisp cool air it brings. The trees are just beautiful. Football season begins, and fall ushers in my favorite holidays, Halloween, Thanks Giving and Christmas (but not in that order). Not to mention my birthday and my anniversary
I hope to really get out and enjoy the different festivities this fall and we started out this past weekend with a visit to the pumpkin patch and of course I took plenty of pictures. I’m still learning my new camera and noticed that most of my pictures came out over exposed, but that’s cool I still captured some great memories. Here are some of our pictures from our trip. Had a hard time deciding which ones to post so there are quite a few here.
Our pediatrician told us about starfall.com. It is a great site to teach little ones to read with phonics and my little one loves it. She say’s she’s doing her work. She really had not computer skill, wasn’t very good with the mouse. Her first time on the site was Tuesday and she was on there again today. She’s a pro now. lol Look how serious she is.
Here are just a few more from our beach trip this year. We really had a good time and we are looking forward to going back next year.
I love this picture of my girls together:
Here is another beach photo. The kids were really ready to go. They were in the car 30 minutes before me and my husband were actually ready to go. lol
My middle daughter starts school today. We were late so I didn’t get good pictures at the school but I did get some of her getting ready this morning:
I haven’t posted any pictures from our beach trip and its long over due. So my goal is to post one every day over the next few days. I read a tutorial on Love that Shot(http://lovethatshot.com/) on the summer vintage look so I thought I’d try it on the first beach photo that I will post….Here goes:
On Sunday, fell and got a nasty boo-boo on her chin. After we cleaned it up and looked at it pretty good, we decided to take her to urgent care. I was thinking that she would need to have a few stitches, but she didn’t. They used Dermabond instead. It is a special kind of glue that is used instead of stitches on smaller cuts. It only takes minutes to apply and then you are gone.
So here are a couple of images of my sweetie and her boo boo:
