An Unusual Relationship

This guy,

Has been learning how to feed himself with a spoon.  He has also discovered that spoons make excellent slingshots.

This dog,

Has discovered that a baby slingshooting yogurt is a pretty good thing. (Notice Nora's 'extra' spots on her head and back)

Corbin thinks its all pretty amusing.

Double Dose of Cute!

I can always tell a photo shoot has been a success when I can't wait to get home to start editing.  I know its been really good when I try to 'preview' the photos on my camera at stop lights on the way home!  This was one of the most challenging shoots I've done- TWO newborns- but I think these are some of the cutest photos I've gotten so far!

Babies Emily and Amilya are eight weeks old and just gorgeous.  We started with awake babies and ended the session with two snuggly, sleepy little girls that hopefully gave their beautiful mama a little break!

I'm looking forward to scheduling a family session with Emily and Amilya's two equally adorable older sisters.

Halloween 2011- yeah you read that right, 20-11 bay-bee!

Halloween is coming!  Last year's Carnival style party was a huge hit, especially with the little- girls- under- five- and- dressed- as- princess demographic.

There were lots of yummy treats, including homemade apple cider donuts and fun activities.  We even set up a Tunnel of Terror that ushered our guests through a dark, spider webbed strewn tunnel from the driveway to the back yard where the party was happening.  Each kid had the opportunity to carve a pumpkin grown from my parent's pumpkin patch and of course there were lots of Anna-made monsters/scary people.

Great costumes from all who attended!

Bobbing for apples, wii dance-off (a mandatory party game at our house now), and a mummy wrap kept our guests busy into the night.

Looking forward to an even better party this year!  And for those of you who attend our Infamous Parties, know that theme has been chosen and Halloween in underway at our house!  

Aww... look at my little pumpkin... this year will be pretty different for this guy!
