my fairy, tree climbing girl

Ansley found these fairy wings in the garage (not sure why they were there) and put them on while she rode her scooter around and climbed trees. Too cute to not take a picture of.
 And this is after I told her to smile for the picture...maybe we should just keep it candid.
And this was after I said 'just smile like something is funny.' A little better.

backtracking a bit...

Can you tell which pumpkin is Ansley's?
 A Storm-trooper, a Jedi, a cheetah (with a pink bow) and a little bumblebee

This is kind of old news now, but a few weeks back there was this ladybug invasion. I would walk outside and have a dozen ladybugs land on me. So I decided to check out the zoom on my camera and see how much detail I could capture with my camera. Not bad.

Last post on our chickens..but I had to share a picture of our beautiful eggs. We might not have to even dye eggs for Easter with these colorful eggs!

new camera

My wonderful hubby got me a new camera for my birthday and I would like to say that I have been taking pictures like crazy now. But with all that is going on during my days I can't seem to find the time to practice and fiddle around with all the buttons and modes and aperture settings...I'm so overwhelmed by it. I even have another lens that I haven't even tried out yet. One day I will find some time to learn and know what aperture and things like f/5.6 mean. But for now I will make the professional photographers cringe (not that any read my blog) while I post pictures of our every day life. Some out of focus, some in really bad light and some where the flash just washes out everyone and everything.

This particular photo was on our "hike" that the kids and I took for PE when the leaves started changing and the weather was just perfect. I was experimenting with the manual focus. Some other random photos to come!
