Playing with the camera...

It's a gorgeous day here in Georgia! The boys and I spent most of the afternoon outside while dh had a big phone presentation/final interview. I was feeling anxious about the interview, and trying to keep the boys occupied, so we all sat on the deck for awhile, trying to relax. I snapped pictures of my children while they just sat and talked with me. It was really neat! Seriously - you should try it! Just take your camera, talk with your kids, give them 95% of your attention (camera will need a bit of attending to, lol!) and snap a whole bunch of pictures.

Here's A1 playing bubbles with the dog...


Daisy is SUCH a sweet dog! She's trying to get me to pet her belly here - she LOVES a good belly-rub!


More of A2...


He talks so much with his hands, I'd never really realized that before!


Here's a cool "action shot" of J1 and N4...


Here's S3 - look at those big brown eyes! And that brand-new hint of a tooth!



If A2 talks with his hands, S3 talks with his facial expressions...


and BOY does he have dimples or what??


J1 is at an age where it's difficult to get a good picture of him - he's old enough to be self-conscious most of the time, ya know? It's so neat to see him teetering on the brink of being a young man, rather than a boy.


He sure does have some baby blues!


I had the most fun getting shots of N4. You can see such a range of expressions on his face, from pout-y-face



to that mischievous sparkle he gets in his eyes...


he's just always had such a beautiful face!


and speaking of mischievious sparkles!


All in all, I had so much fun this afternoon! Even though we STILL haven't heard about Rick's job yet!!! Arrrggghhhhh!!!!
