January 15 on the 15th

After bailing on my 365 and getting REALLY far behind, it’s time to dust off this blog!

I’m minimizing my photography obligations this year, but one of the few projects I’m taking on is a monthly blog circle.  Fifteen images posted on the fifteenth of each month.

For January, I have no theme.  This month’s images reflect the chaos of our world in general.  Birthdays and bath time and bowling.  Macro and even a little landscape as I seek respite for myself (and kids) from daily lifestyle shooting.

I’m participating with several other amazingly talented ladies, so when you’re done, please follow the circle around and see their work, starting with my amazingly talented friend Ashley .

LOVE these!!! I think my favorite is the bowling shot where the pins are in focus, such great framing! And your kids are ADORABLE.

Dates with my kids | October date SJ

For once, baby girl, the last was first for the month and you and I went on our date while the boys were at school. The moment Bubba left, you were hot to trot–shoving your feet into too-small shoes (no socks, thanks) and insisted we head off for ice-cream.  I encouraged you to do your hair first, so you spent some time carefully refining your “do” before declaring yourself “Boo-tiful” and exclaiming, “I look FAB-U-lous mama!”  Then you jammed a Yoda hat on your head and off we went.

You eyeballed the many colors of ice-cream before settling on Strawberry, then insisted on sitting in a high chair.  You are big, but still hanging onto being little.  Seventeen napkins and an emergency potty stop later, we were off to the library.

When we arrived,  you promptly grabbed the step-stool for a drink of water before heading in the color a chicken and take over the play kitchen. You weren’t all that interested in reading books, preferring to serve me up plastic snacks and pretend tea.  We took advantage of a well placed table to get a picture of the two of us together.  Despite your general lack of interest in the books, you did sit for a few stories, then chose a book to take home, checking it out with only a little help from me.

As we rolled in the driveway, you asked to switch to your “stomping shoes” and we headed off to the huge puddle left over from the last few days’ rain.  On the way down the steps, you warned me to look out for the “crunchy things,” and we stopped to check out the crunchy, desiccated remains of some snails.

From there, you tromped through the water, soaking yourself and your boots, both inside and out.   Fortunately, your newfound skills in life include emptying your own boots, so when the stomping was done, you set them up to dry and we headed inside to await the boys’ return.

Love this series. Those welly shots in particular. The black and whites are gorgeous and that puddle reflection shot is fantastic.
