Another warmish day!

I'm behind on posting stuff. This is about yesterday. It was warmish!

The day actually started off really sadly for me, because I heard the sad news that James Kim was not found alive. I had so much hope for this family. The news was devastating. It made me feel so unjustly lucky that I and my loved ones are all safe. My heart goes out to that family.

We had to take some pictures of the girls to send to my mom. She wants to include a photo of them in her Christmas card. This one's my fave:

Maybe this one:

This one?

Okay, so I couldn't get anyone to smile or look at the camera at the same time. Do you know how hard it is to get a kitty and a 5 1/2 month old baby to sit still at the same time, plus get the baby and a 7 year old to smile? It's nearly impossible!

But check out this gem:

It was taken at Sellwood Park. We stopped some random lady walking her dog, and every picture she took was like pure magic. It's a bit dark, but you have to appreciate how she didn't exactly center us. It makes the photo so much better that way. I couldn't believe how thrilled I was about it!

Wow! Great photo! If you want it a little lighter, I can help you bump the levels up a bit in Photoshop, just LMK.

I love Talula's expressions. She always looks like she is too good for human foolishness.
