Fun with the Camera

So when we moved into out house we decided not to get cable. After watching PBS kids and hearing Tray and Violet on on the computer at PBS kids .org I was fed up with it until I found a new channel well it all the sudden showed up when the switch to digital happened. QUBO oh my word it has the cutest shows either that or I am relieved to be watching something other then "Sid the Science Kid". Tray loves taking pictures and this is one of his pieces.
Lexi and her cute sweater
This is what happens when my kids are given suckers, they love to share! Hence the flu hitting every person in our household.
my sweet baby
I wonder what she is thinking
Sad face

Some time when we are at home and I feel so inspired I grab my camera and start taking random fun picture. Here are some from about a week or two ago. Violet has gotten this attitude and its been really trying my patients so sometimes when she is really making me mad I take pictures and it keeps me from yelling and screaming. It's good therapy!!!

don't let this face fool you

I thought her hair was fun this day
"I don't have to be good I'm cute"
Uh oh I'm going to fall

He wanted to take pictures and he was sad he couldn't at the time.
We Love this book "Ten Little Dinosaurs"
this book is hilarious

Her Vampire look "I'm going to suck your blood"
These Pictures Tray took I was quite impressed pretty good for a 5 year old and a big camera.

Getting ready for circle time!

Tray came home from school reciting songs, poems, and finger play stories that all had to do with "Johnny Appleseed" I was so exited that he was learning all these fun songs! Tray's teacher sent home a paper a few weeks later asking if she could get some parents to help them on the day they were going to be making Applesauce for their Johnny Appleseed unit!!! I jumped at the chance to go and thanks to Violet's preschool and a babysitter I was able to go.

I remember when I was little and my mom would help in my class room and she worked as a "Noon Duty Lady" where she would watch the kids at recess and I LOVED IT! One of my favorite memories was when she would buy us bags of popcorn on 25 cent popcorn day and we would eat it together. It was always fun that they had a surprise at the bottom of the popcorn bag mmmmmmm. gummy bears:) I really want to be there for my kids as much as I can.
