The Critters, Post B

The Critters! Post A

Some of my dear little ones have more tolerance for camera work than others, or maybe they have less ham in their spirit. In any case, I tried to get two good pictures of each child, and I was mostly successful. Two of them Hammed it up for many many more pictures-I'll let you guess which ones they were.

Little ol' me!

Kids coming next, I promise!

One Handsome Fellow!

My Hunny

This one is better!

I teased with some portraits I took of the family last week, and then I realized that they all needed some more work. I'm still learning about my programs, and some of the light tinting was off color, among other problems. So I redid our family pic, and here it is. I'll be posting the others sometime this next week, if I have time. It sure was fun to do this-I really enjoyed myself, and I learned a lot about how to do it better next time! This is the best Christmas present I've had in a long time!

I love the way he talks.

"Hi, Mom."

"Hi, David, how are you this morning?"

"I fine. Is it time wake up?"

"Yup! We're going to to church!"

He leaves on his footed pajama feet. Then I hear his voice.

"Buddies! Time wake up! We going church!"

No response. He comes back.

"Buddies not wakuping Mom!"

Where did I go???

Hello, all you folks out there in blogland! If you are still popping around to see if I've resurfaced, an update:

We had a great holiday season; busy of course. It was one I will remember forever, a precious time with family, celebrating the one thing we all are thankful for the most, our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

We had some meetings, wrapping up our furlough, and getting ready to go. I also went through all my stuff, getting it ready to unpack in Mexico, in my new home, which is desperately exciting to me.

My daughter had a bad episode with her appendix, and had to bid it farewell. She is doing great. My main problem with her is keeping her from wrestling with her siblings. We are dependent on the Lord for providing for our needs, and moments like these are powerful reminders of this fact.

The plan is, to head out to Mexico in just a few weeks! I don't know how often I can post between now and then, or how soon we will have internet when we arrive. I got an awesome camera for Christmas, though, so I'll probably not be able to resist posting some fun pics.

That's it! Thanks for taking the time to catch up with me!
