Why can't I get my text and pictures straight?? This whole blogging thing is really a pain in the kiester sometimes! Are they all this bad or is it just blogger?

OK rant over.

We got up early this morning and hit up the city wide sale in Neosho. We were looking for some furniture for Fred's office and I need something to put my craft supplies in. I really want an old buffet or something like that. Anyway, no luck on the furniture. Melonie did find a bunch of earrings. Her ears are not pierced....she uses them on her bulletin board for "pretties" :) We also got her 3 Barbie dvds (she loves those movies??) for $4.00. And I got a pyrex baking dish for $3.00! The girls got a couple books also. So no major scores but we still had a good time.

While we were driving around Melonie started to act really tired and she said that she wanted to go home. She said that her stomach and head hurt...ugh! So we came home and she got jammies on and watched one of her new movies. While she ate tomato soup and had Sprite. She seems to feel better...fingers crossed. Mollie has been snotty for several days now and I really don't want Melonie to get sick too!

I'm off to watch a movie and try to relax.

Here is a pic I took the other day while I was trying to learn manual exposure.

Easter Pictures and testing out Livewriter

Here are a couple pictures from Easter Sunday 2010. I was thinking about next year offering to take portraits for families at church…? Just a thought.
My sweet Mollie
IMG_3814 Self portrait of sorts.  IMG_3828My sweet Melonie :)IMG_3845Miss Hannah. I have a really hard time taking pictures of people with glasses on. What is the best way to do this?IMG_3848 “Hey Mom take out picture by this weird cat”! So that is what I did, it’s overexposed and no one is in focus. But here you go, a picture of you guys in front a weird cat. By the way, who puts this kind of thing in their window display anyway?IMG_3859 Fred’s brother Tony and his little girl Hannah. I guess I’m going to have to do a full shoot for them..hint, hint. Because she did not want to cooperate and pose with daddy.

I realized when I was working on this post that I did not have one of Fred. Shield your eyes, because this one is way overexposed! But for some reason I really like it :) This is the only one I got of him that day…haha! I know, I’m really a lame photog sometimes!IMG_3820

Baby Kyler

I went to my sister's house this morning and took pictures of this little guy he was born last Friday. Kyler Joe :)

Little details...

He was not happy when I tried to take his jammies off.

We worked things out though...

Check out the hair on this kid!

Everyone is happier after the "ba-ba"!

Yay! Almost Friday!

I'm pretty stocked that it's almost Friday! It has been a really fast week too! I have worked on pictures all week, I guess that made it go by fast.

I needed a break from people pics...I was pleased with how these turned out!

I'm going to try some bike and car photography and see how I like it. Anyone want to volunteer....j/k. No really, I need a cool car or bike to photograph!

Ah well it's been a long day...I must get some sleep. I'll post some pics tommorow of little Kyler :)

Kinser / Wilson Photoshoot!!

I did a fun photo shoot with best friends Alex and Kahlea on Saturday. They are from Northern Mo, and were down here for spring break. Alex's little sisters wanted to get in on the fun too...well they got bored after a little while. Luckily we were at a park! At one point Alex was teasing Kahlea about something, and it made me laugh. They thought I was laughing at them....but I was just thinking how much fun we used to have doing the exact same thing when we were teenagers! I wasn't laughing at you all, I promise!! You guys were fun, thanks for being patient with was quite a long shoot :) But well worth it, I think! Enjoy your preview, I hope to have the rest finished up tommorow!
