Hi-De-Ho To the Ritz We Go

I'm going to miss my Lovies, really I am.  But, not enough to make me cancel our 24 hour date.  Yeah, a babysitter for a whole 24 hours!  I don't think I've ever done that before. 

So, what will we do?  I don't exactly know yet.  We may see a movie in the afternoon, run some window shopping errands as we visualize what we will need for the new house.  We'll eat a nice dinner and have date-night conversation.  It's going to be fabulous! 

I'm also going to be taking A LOT of pictures.  I'm seriously behind in my class assignments this week.  In fact, I haven't completed a single one.  UGH.  It's just been that kind of week and the assingments this week are really tough, so that doesn't help much.

I thought, surely, I could get the Portrait shot for the week under my belt before Thursday.  Not really.  I think I can do better than this.

This one is "okay."  She facing the light which is a good thing, but she's half turned, so there is a shadow on her neck.  She also is too centered.  Although, I still think she is adorable.

I actually really like this shot of Camdyn.  I like that she is looking down, and I can see her eyelashes and her perfectly red lips.  I don't really love the fact that the wagon is in the background.

What is it with my kids and looking at their feet?  Love Chloe in a hat.  Don't really love the cheeto mess on her chubby cheeks.  Although, this is childhood, is it not? 
Have a great weekend!

I think these shots are lovely...children in general are just hard to photograph sometimes. Enjoy your 24 hours.

Hi! I ran across your blog from the Tarr Pit.. I love your pictures of your kids! Adorable!

I know what you mean about the 2nd one, her lashes and lips are beautiful!

So.. I hope you don't mind but I decided to have some fun with it, so see if I could work out some solution for the background. Here is my attempt:

So how was that 24 hour date? :-D

I always get so irritated when I have a cute picture of one of my kids, and then realize that there is food all over their face or clothes. But you're right...it IS childhood, after all.
