Basically I just loaded up a few hundred pictures from my mom's camera and I am waiting for the pictures from my camera to load up. I am not planning on actually posting several hundred pictures, so no worries! However this will be a random jumbled post with pictures and stories in no particular order. :)
The Second Budding Photographer
Yes, yes, John Paul, the kid that wants to be the professional chef, and an architect and who wants to own a 5-star fancy restaurant (where the waiters are in tuxes) and he also wants to own a mega resort down in the Bahamas (he has actually drawn plans for it, going into great detail), oh and did I forget to mention that he drew the blueprints for the castle he is planning on building for himself?
He also loves my mom's camera and fills up her memory card with tons of ridiculous photos that he and Max take in their bedroom. His style is quite different from mine as you will see in the following photos:
Not really sure what JP is doing here...
Dinosaur heads? Really? lol!!!
Now this picture is cool. John Paul set up his four inch high AT-AT with white blankets in my parents bedroom. The bad lighting and the grain on the photo add to the photo's appeal in my oppion. It really does look like the AT-AT is outside in the snow in the 5th Star Wars movie. :)
Oh and little plastic men from the game "Risk" which my brothers use to set up elaborate armies and wars.
And of course, they have to have pictures of monsters eating airplanes, (probably inspired by Rampage.)
So there you have it. Boys + a camera + lots of free time = crazy pictures!
Side Note: Rose was in here watching me and asked me what I was doing, when I told her, she begged me to post this one picture that she took all by herself. I'm posting it because we will all have a good laugh over it when Rose is older!
A Valentine from God
Valentine's day was a Monday this year which meant Cecilia and I had to wake up before the sun to go to school. Usually we hardly notice the sun rise because it's not that spectacular. However this Feb. 14th God sent down a Valentine's Day surprise for us. It was the most stunning sunrise I have ever seen. Usually I edit my pictures a little bit. Espescially sunrise/sunset pictures, normally I just tweak the colors a bit to bring them out more. However I did not edit these at all (They are a little blurry but it was very cold and my hand was shaking.):
Look, all the colors you use on Valentine's day, hot pink, red, orange, purple!!!
The whole sky was literally pink and purple and red!
Playing in the Snow
You remember all that snow we had a few weeks ago? I think I mentioned in the last post that I had pictures to post. Well here they are:
Look at that huge icicle.
Mom went outside with Max, Rose and Ben and they built a Dominican Snowman! (See the rosary?)
Mom and Max also decided that it was a good time to climb the tree!
Playing in the Sun
Oh ironic, going from snow to warm sunshine. :) We have seriously enjoyed the past few days which have been so incredibly warm. (Well yesterday and today haven't been as warm...)
Mud of course was part of the deal:
As well as mud pies:
And open windows:
And it was Joey's first time walking outside (he loved it of course):
Are they cute or what?
And just for the record, Rose chose to dress herself in the shorts and t-shirt and bare feet, and Benny just stayed in his pj's (the shirt is one of JP's old ones).
Isn't he just absolutely adorable?
Playing at the Park
On Friday, my parents took Max, Rose and Ben to the park:
One more Random Picture
That's all for now.
