Playdates & Photographs

The last few days have been filed with two playdates and one LONG day for me and my new hobby.
Thursday night, Harry & Amanda came over to have chicken nuggets & play. Check out Amanda's blog for a play by play of Elliot and her antics! Classic! We had a great time and can't wait to schedule our next date with Harry!








Friday found ourselves at our first, weekly playdate set up by our good friends Ashlee, Sam & Isaac. We had a blast this first week and I think this will be just what all of us stay at home moms with little ones need. All the kids played great and we all loved us some adult conversation. Can't wait for this weeks date!






I don't know if I told yall or not but when I got my camera I figured the best way to get practice was to throw myself in head first. So I volunteered at church to take pictures to help update the photo database and so they could use them to update the website. Well, (Have I already told you this? I swear I have MAJOR twin brain!) anyway, last week, my camera wasn't in yet and I had to use my old one. This week, I had my camera and got to spend two whole services shooting the 3s & 4s. Oh I love this age! They are so funny and so sincere in their worship. Below are some of my favorite shots. If any should make the website, I will let yall know so you can check it out.




This final picture has to be my favorite. May we all worship Him this unashamed!

The pictures are amazing. I am slightly jealous that you will be getting to see Ash every week for playdates. We need to try to get her to start blogging. Love the last picture of the little boy with his arms up. So sweet.

I saw your playdate pictures yesterday on Amanda's site and was cracking up about the rocking horse & sharing. We have similar issues. Your pictures are precious. I really need to get in a better habit about taking more. Love the new look to the blog. Have a good week & enjoy the playdates. They sure help long days pass quickly.

Melissa, those are awesome pictures! What kind of camera did you end up getting (sorry if you already told and I forgot)? You've got fun people to have playdates with. Tell Ashlee I said hi. It's been a couple of years since I last ran into her down here.
