My Girlie Girl!

So excited for my girlie girl.  She entered an art contest in our town and won 3rd place out of 300 applicants!


P-52 Week 8

This week was a blur....
It went by so fast.  Every time the week's challenge is over, I think to myself... "I have plenty of time for next week."  Then, before you know it, Monday is here and I have to scramble for pictures.  Ugh.
Anyway, good thing I have my girl.  She loves to get her camera out and show me up.  Really, she is getting better than me.  Not that I am that great but she is far surpassing me.

So, the first two pictures are hers and they are SOOC.  The last picture I took.  My boy and I went down to the college he may be attending in the fall.  He was accepted but this momma is really nervous and feel like if i don't say that he is actually going then I can pretend like it is not happening.  Anyway, they have a new building that they were dedicating it to the Lord.  They had the students go throughout the rooms and write something on the cement floor.  My boy's favorite scripture is Joshua 1:9 so he decided to write that one. Which is really a good one for me to remember during all these changes.

P 52 Week 7

Already week 7...
This was our 23rd wedding anniversary!  On Friday we celebrated Valentine's Day and went to a Valentine Dinner that a wonderful Christian lady put on.  They actually had a time for renewing your wedding vows.  I thought it was timely and so we did.  It was so sweet and a very special evening. Sunday was our anniversary.  We headed to the beach, my favorite place, ate dinner and took a walk on the beach.  It was a beautiful day.  So blessed....

Many Blessings,

P52 Week 6

We went home for the weekend for our twins birthday!  It is crazy to think that these kids turned 30!  Wow!  They were 6 years old when I got engaged to their daddy and 7 when we married.  I was of course just a baby : ) Really, I was 22 not a baby but young! Right? Anyway, I got to see my grand babies and love all over them... they are so adorable.  I only have a picture of one up.  I put the picture of my boy on there because I thought it was a good one.  He is so cute, if I say so myself.  : )

This week has been tough.  I did not get my camera out until yesterday.  I took some photos of our preparations for Super Bowl snacks.  I wish I only ate cucumbers but I digress that I ate so much more. That is another story or post....

The first picture is my poor attempt to shoot the cucumber.  I had my 50mm lens on and shot in aperature F-1.8 200 iso.  Anyway, the white balance seems to be off.  Ugh.
Next, my girlie girl grabs her camera and shoots away.  She blew me away in my opinion.  She shot in aperature as well. Her iso was 400, F5.6 and shutter speed 1/30. Her picture is SOOC.  Obviously, the coloring is way better and the lighting seems so much more natural.  As I was downloading her picture, I noticed all these shots that she has taken and did not down load.  The last picture is also SOOC!  She is way better than me and has only been shooting for a short while.

So there you go....
I have a natural on my hands...

Many Blessings,
