Fall Color

Wow! It has been so long since I posted on this blog that I'm almost surprised that I still know how to do it! LOL. After a couple of weeks of not even taking my camera out of it's bag, I finally got outside to experiment with a new shooting mode (at least new to me). I played for less than 10 minutes, and I didn't have any great inspiring subjects at hand....but I did find this little spot of color in the yard. I like them.

My Reluctant Hillbilly

He wasn't reluctant to BE a hillbilly. He was reluctant to be a PHOTOGRAPHED hillbilly. I took the camera out of its bag, and the whining/tears started. You'd think I was asking him to gnaw his arm off and let me video tape it or something. I don't even require smiles all the time....just a PLEASANT expression would be nice. Ah well....he was adorable today in his bib overalls and straw hat, and I had to snap a picture....pleasant expression or not. It was the only day of spirit week that I took photos....you wouldn't think it would be too much to ask, would you?!

Yep...even more....

More pics from the festival. I haven't had time to finish editing all of these, much less get the camera out and take more! This is always such a busy time of year!

Riley's school has had spirit week all this week, and the kids have had to dress up every day. It's been fun, but rather exhausting too! On a happy note, Riley and his friend Logan have dominated the kindergarten with their costumes, with one of them being chosen every morning to represent the kindergarten in the daily school costume contests. Their costumes? Logan was chosen for his Knight of the Lord's table costume. Riley for his Superman PJ's on pajama day, and his pirate costume on character day. They were both chosen on twins/pairs day today for their Robin Hood (Riley) and Friar Tuck (Logan) costumes, which were very cute. I think they've enjoyed it...but I'm pretty sure Riley would just as soon wear his school uniform tomorrow! There is no rest for the weary, however.....tomorrow is Hillbilly day! Should be interesting! (I didn't even take my camera to school this week for photos! Hopefully I can get some from the yearbook staff for his scrapbook!)

This is our pastor, "Pecos Pete" and his grandson, cowboy Jaden.

Gavin and Brooke were adorable all decked out in their cowboy/girl gear!

"Jimmy Bill" has to be the second cutest boy in the whole wide world. Second, of course, to my Riley. *wink*
