Gobble Gobble

Madi wore her new turkey shirt to school yesterday. She of course helped me make it. She picked out the fall fabrics and traced her hand.

This picture of Ben and Madi was quickly snapped this morning before heading out for school. Madi was dressed up in her new Georgia skirt with lots of polka-dots all the way down to her toes and Ben in the same colors but showing spirit for our Atlanta Falcons. Steve sure is missing out on these two, they are so fun. But not too much longer....only a few more weeks!!! My kids have been so wonderful this whole time Steve has been gone. I am lucky to have such good Air Force kids.

The puddle jumpers are so cute. The entire outfit is cute! I looked them up on line and found they also come in brown and white.... Don't know which I should order for Anna. Can't wait to see you tomorrow!

I am so glad to hear that Steve is coming home soon!! I don't know how you do it, it has really been a long time! I bet you are all so excited to see him:)

The kids look adorable.....I love the turkey shirt, that is so cute!!

Your comment just came through my email, so I thought I would respond quickly before I forget. For the most part, I do not use a zoom when I take pictures of the kids, I used a fixed lens that is really great for portraits. Most of the time it is a 50mm 1.8 lens. It is a really inexpensive lens, but it gives you a lot of clarity for portrait style shots. I have a Canon 40D, so it takes the same lenses that your Rebel takes. You can get this lens for about $100. If you need anything else, let me know, I believe you have my email address.

Enjoy your Sunday!!

Love the Turkey shirt...I have seen this on a little girl at school a few years back...I thought it was precious.

Love those shoes of Maddie...Lexi is into shoes and has a closet full of them.
