February 2

Day 2 of my photo sharing!  Since I don't have an infant in my arms tonight, I can type with two hands.  So I will mention that I am taking a photo class.  Well, is that really what it's called?  Not sure.  It's online, it's called The Joy of Love, and it looked like a good excuse to dust off the camera and start shooting again! 

I admit that I am feeling a little overwhelmed with mommyhood right now.  A three week old baby is the sweetest thing EVER, but juggling the complexities of bringing a newborn into the house with the day-to-day of running a household and caring for 5 other kids and a husband has me on the brink!!  I have no room in my life for any projects!  So, seriously, a photography class??  No, I can't even be sure that I will have ten minutes together to work on it!  But I think I can commit to ONE photo a day, as long as I don't promise high quality! 

Today's prompt for a photo is HOW THEY LOOK.  I caught Jackson eating a yummy muffin, told him to wipe off the crumbs (he missed one, heehee!), and snapped a shot.  For some reason, it is so difficult to get a picture of him looking natural, but I think the yummy muffin helped him to relax or something. (Yeah, I know, that makes no sense.  But we're talking about a nine year old here, and it's a sleep deprived mommy talking about him!)  This picture is certainly HOW HE LOOKS. 


And I couldn't resist adding this second picture.  Those two.  I love 'em.  Jordan made the muffins and he was very satisfied that Jackson enjoyed his so much.  Uh huh.  I know.  I should have gotten their hair cut days/weeks ago, but don't forget that overwhelmed mommy comment!  Now.  Who can tell me which twin is Jordan and which is Jackson?

i love it they are so cute and what a great idea, just think when you are done you will have more then enough photo's, to make the grandma's happy

My goodness they are cute. And I defer that question...I couldn't really tell them apart even as babies (except of course by memorizing what they were wearing on any particular day.) :)

I actually DON'T think the photo class is silly right now (I wouldn't anyway) - you need an outlet. People always ask me how I have time to 'do stuff' and I'm like ' I HAVE to' or I'd go crazy here.

excited to see day #3! Which I hope is a baby photo!

I could never tell them apart, but now that I have my own twins, I think it's funny that other people can't see the difference. It is so obvious to me. When people ask me how I tell them apart, I try to describe it, but they never really seem to get it. For other people's sake, I put Kade in blue, and Spencer gets the other color (red, orange, green, brown). Sometimes, just for funsies, I like to dress them the same and take them to church. :-)

I still can't tell the difference, but I am loving the photos. You are one amazing Mommy!

Me parece extraordinaria la imagen singular de una familia numerosa tan bien avenida con esa
sonrisa emanadora de sus miembros tan brillante enhorabuena por conseguir darle a la palabra
familia su mas alta distincion.
