We made our first teepee this weekend, I just had to take a peek inside...
 

We also dressed up, the best we could with what we had, as Mario and Luigi. The kids insisted on having their entire nose painted red- so I obliged. We had a lot of fun...
 
This year one of my goals is to learn to take better pictures and learn how to use my camera. So I have decided to take part of this photo project- started by Joddie of Ché and Fidel, where you take one portrait of your kids every week and at the end of the year you have 52 wonderful, memorable shots. This is just the motivation I needed, I've been carrying my camera's manual around with me for years! It's about time I learnt how to use it to it's full potential.
All this got started when I was inspired by all the wonderful photos and lovely blog by Dee at She Had Us At Hello and when I discovered she was part of this wonderful project, I knew I had found my source of motivation. You should really check out both these blogs.
 
So I'm a little late in the game as I'm starting at week 8- better late then never! I've decided that all my photos will be taken on the manual mode of my camera which is all new to me. Also, as you might have noticed, you never really see my kids faces on the blog- well that won't change, but it's an added challenge- taking portrait without really seeing their faces. So I hope to take photos of the good times, the mood, the little moments...
 
And at the end of the year I will make each kid a book with their 52 portraits. I think this will make for a great Valentine's Day gift! Don't you?
 
Here we go, every sunday I'll be posting a portrait of each kid- wish me good luck!
