Our Third Snow This Winter!!

Blah Blah Blah.
More snow for us "Kentuckians!"
Can you hear how Thrilled I am!?
Well I always make the best of situations so today I bundled all of us up and headed outside of like maybe 40 minutes of play! YAY!
It seems like a LOT of work to take half an our to put on 10 layers of clothes just to stay out an equal amount of time eh? Oh well I got some cute shots of my boy and tonight I managed to get a few full moon shots! (Oh yeah!)

YAY FOR SNOW!
His first handful of snow today :) He is always in awe with snow when he picks it up. You gotta love childhood curiosity and innocence!

Why is it IMpossible to get this child to look at me when I have my camera?! WHY?! It's frustrating to have every shot of your kid looking right, left, up and down but hardley EVER right at you! LOL
Daddy
I don't know if I ever mentioned that I LOVE candid shots? Well, I do and I'm so lucky to have captured one today of my husband (because if you don't know, he HATES having his picture taken! So once I got it edited and showed him of course he LOVES it lol..and thats R.A.R.E!

Me and my Boy!
And yes, I turned over the camera to him to snap one of me and Dillon..which I LOVE how it turned out and how nicely tan my skin looks (I guess because it's against so much white! LOL) This is my entry for Photoshoot Friday!

SPIT!
So wild man picks up a handful of snow and eats it. Problem was he picked up the handful out of the SANDBOX and I guess got more sand than snow in his mouth! So the next several minutes were spent drooling and making that yucky crunch sound you hear when you get sand in your mouth! ICK!

Our full moon was beautiful tonight cascading it's light on the snowy blanket! The snow was 'sparkly and glisteny!'. I went out and captured a few shots I loved! Here's a couple:
and one more time~
Our full moon!
Oh how I love the moon! I'm entering the second Moon photo into "Best Shot" Friday over at Better in Bulk blog and Foto Friday over at Household 6 Diva (the theme is "light"-light from the moon? AND Skywatch Friday of course..along with Show {Off} Your Photo Friday over at And Then, She {Snapped} blog! To share something about this photo...I used my 85mm lens, did a crop to come in and see the detail of the moon, used the burn tool to bump up the dark detail on it and saved!

Lastly...
Our Third Snow this winter!
Some HUGE HUGE flakes started falling after we came in. So I ran back out on our porch and tried to get a focus where I could maybe capture a few snowflakes crisply focused but didn't really succed but I still liked this photo for some reason :)

I hope you enjoyed how I spent my Thursday! :D

Love all your photos, but those moon shots are amazing! I cannot get a good photo of the moon, it always comes up like a distant blur. Great job!

Hazelnut said...

Those moon shots are amazing! Love all these photos especially the one with your cute little boy drooling.

Shari said...

Oh I am so jealous of you and all your snow shots. Even tho we got tons of snow also, I don't have any cool shots. Mainly because I have a prissy little model that told her Mimi that it was toooo tooo cold to go outside. :(

I so intended to go out and get some *snow* shots with out the model but I was in my work clothes and I would have had to change.. blah blah blah. I made dinner - got all POed at launching CS5 and I went to bed.

Thanks for sharing all of your lovely shots!

They are all great- but I am always drawn to the moon shots because this is the one thing that I just can't figure out how to capture right. It is something I just keep working at. Gorgeous!

Your moon shots are lovely! Your husband does a good job with your camera, too. I think you've had more snow there than we've had in Denver this year!!!

Amber said...

In Southern Illinois here and we just got our 4th snow yesterday. We are usually lucky if we get 1 a year. It's pretty and makes for some great pics but I think I am done with snow for the year. :)


I love your moon shots!
