Batter Up...

Please don't ask my why my daughter got out a plastic little kids bat to play in the 2 square feet of snow left on a warm sunny day...but she did...and I got this beautiful backlit shots of her because of it!

The only snow play of the year

So we had our first accumulation of snow this week...crazy for Kansas to have it be this late in the winter and this little accumulation when it does come.

It's been driving Caleb CRAZY!  He has this whole thing planned out how he's going to make a snow fort and have snow ball fights with teams of adults versus kids, girls versus boys, and so on.

So imagine his disappointment when not only did it take this long in the winter to get snow, but when the measly amount did come, he was sick and I wouldn't let him go out and play in it.

So we got home from a movie this afternoon and the kids noticed two little patches of snow left from where it had been shoveled into a big pile...and they took their chance at playing in the snow!

And, yes...that's Shana in a short sleeved t-shirt (it was warm enough...that's what I was wearing taking these shots)...and that's Caleb in his heavy coat...and he wouldn't take it off no matter how many times I told him it was plenty warm out.  I think maybe having the coat on added to the feeling that he was playing in snow! :)

Size does matter!

It's so hard to commit to BIG portraits!  You think "8x10 is plenty big...I wouldn't ever get a 20x30!"

But take a look at an 8x10 in a dining room...

Compared to that 20x30...

What a statement the 20x30 makes compared to the 8x10 that simply gets lost.  Compared to the scale of our furniture, hallways, stairways and fireplaces, a 20x30 really isn't as big as you think it is when looking at it by itself!

And don't forget about groupings!

Fort building

My kiddos spent their Saturday morning building a fort in the living room.  And of course Shana did "work" with her "papers" from inside it...and of course Caleb stopped to watch TV every time the commercials ended! :)

Cutest little baby feet ever

I got the chance to take photos of a very special little 3-month old man this week...and without a doubt, my favorite where his sweet little tootsies!

Toe jam and all...

And his cute little never-on-quite-right socks...

Always moving, curling around the other one...

Oh, and ok, his cutie-patootie fingers were pretty adorable, too!
