Getting Better

At two things that is!

Healthwise, I'm feeling like a brand new person not being in pain anymore. It's amazing, isn't it. :-) (Again, I'll spare you all the girly details - I promise I'm not trying to be secretive) But, let me tell you, it's pretty darn hard to take care of 3 kids and have unexplained (pretty severe) pain. But I have the BESTEST Dr ever and he took wonderful care of me!! The kids are also getting better...Lillian was a little "croupy" the other day. And we all know there is nothing you can do about it but wait it out. And Landon had a random fever. Kid thing, ya' know!! So wait it out we home.

And while we were waiting it out at home, I got some time to keep playing with my camera. I tell ya', it will never end. But thank goodness it's digital and I'm not having to run back and forth to get the pictures developed, so I can learn as I go pretty quickly. When I was in high school, I took a photography course and had to shoot with an all manual AE-1 Canon SLR. But it's a whole new ball game now. And it's so fun.

And I think I'm slowly getting better. Shooting on manual at least! And it's making me capture special moments of the kids.

At least I have 1 kid that will cooperate!! :-) My sweet firstborn daughter!! We had fun.

Now, if I can only get the other two to sit still long enough to take some pictures with me. I have to say, I have huge respect for people who photograph children!!!


  1. Hey! I am so glad you are feeling so much better! Yea! Also, your pictures are FABULOUS!!! They look great! Amazing!!! Olivia is so beautiful! I'm sorry I never replied to you asking me about settings, etc. Looks like you've more than got it down!
