Smith sneak peeks

I got to play with this little cutie the other day -- I had so much fun! She was a bundle of smiles and giggles and loved the camera! Here are my favorites:

Thanks so much, Smiths, for coming over and playing! I had a great time!!

what do you see?

So, when you look at that first photo, what do you see? A shoveling nightmare? One big shiver?

Well, I see a blank canvas . . . for this:
Snow Painting! The other day I took the kids outside, completely burdened down in their snow clothes with only faces showing, and let them loose with color.

I filled up some plastic garnish bottles with diluted food coloring and let them have at it. Thankfully, since the snow is pure white, it only took a few drops of the food coloring to make the colors bright enough . . . thus preventing the staining of clothes. It was a huge hit! Gennie wrote messages for Daddy to find when he came home from school and Josiah made small puddles everywhere.
The bottles lasted just long enough as I was almost frozen solid from the wind. We finished up and went inside, red-cheeked and numb, for some hot cocoa with marshmallows for them and a huge coffee for me.
I'll finally say it: Yay, snow!

Schwarzrock sneak-peeks

So, here's another sneak-peek for a family session I did recently. It was a blast, and I had a terrible time picking out just a few of my favorites so I put all my faves on here....and Kali, there's plenty more on the CD!

Look at those curls!

Their little guy is such a cutie. . . he was cracking me up the whole time!
They got the last of our fall colors, too!
In this last one, it's a little hard to see on here but his huge grin as they swung him was so big and happy. . . adorable!! Thanks again, guys, for letting me take your pictures! It was fantastic!

halloween 2010

So, here are some highlights from our halloween this year. We held fast to the Toy Story theme and had a Jesse:
And of course, Buzz Lightyear:
I love this next one. They probably won't trick or treat together forever so I'm loving the fact that they do it now:
Gennie had her costume parade at school:

And Kev had to dress up for school so we got in on the fun. Kev's core of teachers decided to stick together and based their costumes around him. He was at the tail end of another flare-up of his bone condition and had been on crutches for a week, so they decided he would be an injured football player on crutches (they even got the school's wheelchair and pushed him around in it for the school parade), one of them would be the coach, one would be the school nurse and one would be a cheerleader.
We went to the Bundy's annual halloween party on Saturday night, too, so I had him go as the injured football player again and I went as his cheerleader girlfriend. I haven't had so much hairspray in my hair since I was in middle school!
