Latest Photo Fun!

Tuesday, March 30, 2010

I have been trying to take pictures every chance I get. I have really gotten some fun ones lately. Spring is the best time to find animals to snap a shot of! You know me, I could take animal pics all day!! LOL!! The ones I am about to post are just a hodge-podge of things. Most of them have been edited, that's where the fun comes in!! I have just as much fun turning my pics into art as I do taking them! Such a goob, I know!! LOL!! :P I hope you enjoy.

Hello! I'm back!! I missed ya! :D Now, finally those bball pics!!

This year was the first year that Dylan played basketball. Going in, he was super duper nervous! He was the only 6th grader that had never played before, so he was worried about looking like an idiot. That turned out to not be the case!! My baby did amazing!! Every week he improved leaps & bounds!! There was such a huge difference from the first week, until the last! It was like an entirely different kid! I can't wait for next season! Dylan plans on playing from here on out. He really loves it! Ted and I are so very proud of him. He really had to fight some tough nerves to sign up, and he did it!! He had such an amazing time, and now he signed up for baseball....another sport he has never played!! I love it!! My baby's growing up, and maturing!! It makes a mommy's heart swell! :D

--don't mind the quality of some of these pics, the one gym had horrible lighting!
--Bad lighting + movement = pixels, pixels, pixels!!! Yuck!!


Mi Familia...

Friday, March 12, 2010

I thought I would post some updated pics of my family. It seems like my kids are just growing way too darn fast, and Ted & I are getting *cough* old *cough*!!

Dylan is half way through 6th grade. I can't believe it! Junior High in 6 months!! Ahhhh!!!! He's a good boy though! I have no worries! :D We just got his mid-term progress reports, and he has all A's with 2 B's....not too shabby!! He is just finishing up his first year of basketball. It has been amazing!! He loves it so much! I wish it could go on for another 6 months!! I really hope he decides to play next year, but I'm sure he will! ;) He really plays very well for never having done it before. I can't wait to see what his future holds.

My little Ashley is in 2nd grade, with 3rd grade math & reading. She does really well in the higher classes. The only hard part is missing out on things with her own classmates. I guess it's just a sacrifice for advancement. I just feel bad for her sometimes. Next year she will be able to play county rec sports, which will be exciting. She is planning on doing volleyball and basketball, I can't wait!!

Ted and I have been married for almost 14 years....wow!! Time really does fly! I love him more than ever, so I guess it's going well! :) He still works for the same place he's been at for 12 years, and it's going great. God has really blessed us!

Anyway, that's my little 'catch up' post! LOL!! Look for pics in the next few days of Dylan's basketball season!! TTFN!! :)


Project Bentlee...

Thursday, March 11, 2010

I took this picture of Bentlee, and I LOVED it!! It was just screaming to be edited and played with!! LOL!! Nothing is funner to me than editing photos. I know, I know....nerd city!! LOL!! Anyway, here is my little Project Bentlee! :D

--original pic, followed by 6 alterations


Love this face..

I had a fun little photo snapping spree with Ashley. I love when I can catch her many faces. She's one of those kids that just brings a smile to your face. I played around a little in the editing, and was really pleased with the results. I get bored with regular looking portraits...I want the fun stuff! LOL!! Enjoy!


Yes, I am still here!!

Monday, March 8, 2010

Hello!! Long time, no see! :D I have decided to start blogging again. Well, I will give it a try! LOL! I got a new camera, and I am anxious to start posting pics again! For those of you that know me, I like to pretend I am a photographer!! Truth is, I just love taking pictures! I am definitely an amateur, not that great at all. I have just stepped into the world of Digital SLR photography, so lets hope I learn a lot! I like to take pics of just about anything, so no telling what will end up on the blog! LOL!!

Yesterday, my husband and I ran over to Port Orford (Oregon Coast) for lunch. Yes, I said for lunch. What?!? Doesn't everyone drive 3 hours for lunch? :D We like to go for drives to get a chance to spend time with each other. We are both road trip people, and both of us bring our cameras for repeated stop & clicks! So, here are some of my shots from yesterday. I hope you enjoy. :)

(pics can be blown up when clicked...i don't recommend blowing up the hawk pic, him & I were both moving..which doesn't make for the clearest shot :P)

---animals from different points along way, tree from side of Face Rock, rock and waves from Port Orford Dock area, and last 2 pics of the old Port Orford City Jail
