Jessi all "dolled up"

The other day Jessi came out to me and said "Mom, if I get all dolled up will you take my picture?"  Now the first adorable item in that sentence is "dolled up".  I didn't know people still used that saying.  The second is that she asked me to take her picture.  She fights me constantly about asking her to let me take her picture.  I got quite a few good ones.  These are just a few.

Unsure Knight!

I really love this picture.  Aren't his eyes cute?

A good laugh!

I thought this would be fun.  I really didn't have great baby pictures to work with but I took pictures in the waiting room of the grandparents with their arms out like they were holding babies.  Don't you just love all three of their expressions.  I probably could get better results by making their hands show around the babies but this was just for fun.  I hope someone got a small laugh at my attempt to bring the boys together without being together.

Here is Jenni!

Pre-delivery belly

I have been working on some artistic looks.  Here is Kimi two days before delivery.   I colored the brick wall and adjusted the tone a little on her shirt.

Extra Edits

I finally figured out how to fix under the eyes.  What do you think.

Here is a picture from the first day of school.  I blurred the background and did some color adjustments.

Jessi Ann

Here is a photo of Jessi from the first day of school.  I smoothed her skin and brightened her eyes.  Too much?  Let me know what you think.

My sister Kimi

Here is a gorgeous shot of Kimi.  Just two days before she gives birth.  Aren't the colors rich.  I just love it!

My boys!

Here are my boys. Don't they look cute! The first on is the after and the second one is the straight out of camera. I am having trouble being able to move the pictures down the page on my laptop. Does anyone know what to do so I can move them again. When I log in on the desktop I can still move them so I know it isn't blogger.

My mom

Ok mom stopped by yesterday to deliver some pool shock. Thank you mom! I grabbed her to get some pictures outside. Notice the bluer eyes and the smoother skin.

Day at the Pond

We spent the day at the pond. We set up the tents and just enjoyed the day. The boys had a couple of friends from their class spend the night last night after the game. Once we took them to the pond they wanted them to stay again.

Cody caught a fish. He came up to me and asked if he could call his mom. I said sure. When she answered, he said. "Mom I caught a fish, I really caught a fish. I'm having so much fun." Apparantly that was the first fish he had ever caught. I told Tim that alone made it worth all the work of putting things up and dragging all the food and drinks etc... to the pond.

I took this picture of Sam and Scott. I thought it turned out neat but I wish I had gotten a different angle that included the water.
Jenni and I decided to come home to sleep but I got this picture of the moon before we left.

First Home Football Game

Wow it's already football time. Our defending State Champion Wolverines took to the field with gusto! We were ahead 35 - 0 half way through the second quarter. The 2nd and third strings took over and they almost 45ed em. It was a great way to start the season!

Jeri, Laura, & Maddy

Last weekend I took some pictures of the Birthday girls. I'm positing the before and after editing to see what you think. I'm also going to do the same with the boys pictures.

I have been working on editing photos. I'm getting ready for those new babies. Anyway I love this shot of Josh from last Friday. I didn't have to do any retouching to his skin. Isn't it beautiful.

Buddy is Gone!

Well didn't today turn out great! Buddy got out when I took the boys to football practice. She was chasing our van and I told the kids "he is going to get hit". Well he did. Tim found him when he came home to change to go up to practice. The kids and I have all had a good cry.
