A little setback...

Why oh why would my child, who has been leaving the cat's water bowl alone for months now, suddenly decide it is an ideal and allowable place to play?

For a while, about once a month would come the time when she got re-curious about it. Then she'd be set for another month. The last week it has been daily. Come to think of it, she has also started banging on my laptop again, and won't leave the remote controls alone. I hope this isn't a permanent regression, but I'm not holding my breath!

I've been busily messing around with my new light setup and trying to make a go out of photography. Since I've gotten some great ones of some of the kids in my moms group I was thinking "I can do our family photo no problem."

First day I tried, I got so mad at trying to work with the timer I gave up.

Today I went and got my neighbor and asked her to snap a few for us. I had to assure her that everything was set up and all she had to do was click. She got comfortable with it pretty quickly. Then Lorelei decided she was completely against the idea of portraits.

We finally got a passable one of the card, but it definitely was NOT what I was going for.

At least it made for a good photo montage...

By "good" I do mean ridiculously silly.

Halloween Costumes anyone?

I got them done, and I think they turned out pretty well. Unfortunately there's no full picture of my dress, which I think was the most impressive thing, plus I never got a good full body shot of Lorelei because she wouldn't cooperate for me. I got at least good looking pictures of her dad and I both though. (sadly, no family picture)

My boyfriend, the garden gnome. A neighbor kid actually told him to watch out for boots.

Lorelei's costume had a headband with flowers and flower appliques but she wouldn't leave them alone. Oh well, still a mighty cute fairy, if I do say so myself!
