May I just tell you that I love, love, love my camera--almost like another member of my family.  When I take pictures I see people's faces and I think to myself, "Self, God really knows what he is doing. Look at His children, it is no wonder He loves them so much.  I love them too. The eyes are truly the window of the soul."

I just feel so blessed.

In church on Sunday some of the people were saying that they couldn't look at other people's blogs because it made them feel inadequate or like they weren't doing all they needed to be doing.  Well if you saw my life in reality you'd probably get a chuckle about my blog. . . I try to only put the good things that are happening on the blog and while they may not all make it on here--know that the not so good things will seldom make it on here because I want to remember the good things a lot more than the bad. . . . okay--off my soap box.  Thanks for reading!

Today I was the designated district photographer.  I got to take pictures of many of the children at my kidlets' school and some of the shots I got (some accidentally) made me feel tingles of happiness. . . hopefully they will for you too!

The Annual Pumpkin Patch, where each child gets to choose a pumpkin to take home for Halloween. 
It's my favorite activity to come to as a PTA mom, I think.

R went as Louis from Meet the Robinsons, but no one knew who that was so he adjusted it to Einstein (when he was a young man). 

I think I may have been distracted when taking this photo and it is the only one I really like of S.  She was Belle from Beauty and the Beast.

T was a trooper. He stayed with me from 8:30-2:45 without too many problems. . . except hunger, grouchiness, and tiredness--but he got through thanks to sweets provided for the helping parents. After we got home he decided he did not want to wear a costume-at all. So we put him back in his sheriff star sweatshirt (as seen above) and headed out to trick-or-treat.  Brooklyn is an amazing place to trick-or-treat.  No one questioned his costume--I guess it helps to look "official."

This is my first ghost photograph. I got the idea from my friend--a professional photographer, whose class I just finished and loved.  We're the PTA ghosts. . . . Mwah ha ha!

And Mom, just for the record the boys are getting haircuts. . . just as soon as I have the energy--which should be soon . . . like optimistically tomorrow.

So what kind of camera is it? And how did you learn to use it so quickly? I have a nice expensive camera but I'm still clueless and having trouble with it years later! lol
