Much appreciation for photographers working with kids!

I totally forgot to blog about what we did last week for the girls Advent Calendar! DUH! We started the week off by making some white chocolate ghosts and then the next day I made some pumpkin chocolate chip cookies (thanks Andrea!) For some reason mine didn't turn out looking Andrea's but it still had that yummy taste. Then on Wednesday we set up 2 baskets and did a "Boo and Go" to two houses.

For those that don't know what a 'boo and go' is, it's when you make a Halloween treat and drop it off at some random friends house. Usually you ring the doorbell and do a 'ding dong ditch' but our 1st victim was packing and I had parked an acre away b/c she lives in a different part to our neighborhood that we are not supposed to be able to get into unless we are 'okayed' thru the gates. BUT we have found a way over to their house to bypass those gates. So the girls ran it over to their house before school. LOL Then after school we took the other basket to their cousins house and no one was home except the dog Roxy. I don't think she was going to tell anyone it was us! ;) Here is what the baskets looked like:

Today I had my niece, Colleen, come over and take some photos for me. She's good with the camera and I got to pose the kids. was supposed to be a family portrait but Neal and Lindey were getting all greasy with our 4wheeler for our riding tomorrow so I just opted to make it a kids photo op instead. I don't know how those photographers do it! I'm just glad that the pix got taken. Momma doesn't have the same patience as she used to! LOL

Colton didn't want to cooperate, Sydney had issues with her smile or her head and Morgan wanted to help out too. TOO MANY CHIEFS!! hahaha

But got these pix for the day and I'm happy. {thanks Colleen} Now I've got to figure out which ones I want to alter into different colors for our wall. I will have to get Neal to take photos of me and him at a different time. Who knows, maybe tomorrow when we are 4wheeling we might get a good pix out of it!

Enjoy the pictures!

Move over Coppertone comes Lil' Man! hahaha
Me trying to get Tallulah off of him and also him away from the ants in the ditch!

FINALLY shot with all 3 and they are looking, smiling and happy!
Yeah right Colton, there is an airplane in the sky! LOL It didn't fool him. ;)
Our little Tallulah is growing!
What are you looking at?

Yup, photographing kids is stressful. I much prefer weddings. LOL.
We boo'd our neighbors this year with muffins. Loved doing it!
