Quarterly Top 5- September Edition

Do you hear that??? What you ask? Nothing. There isn't a single noise in my house besides the fish tank.  I got up before the boys this morning and I have accomplished so much!  Since Tiny usually gets up before 6:30 it is rare I get up before him, but today is an exception.  I even finished a whole cup of coffee, visited many blogs and picked out my top 5 photos for the September Quarterly Top Five Link Up.  Oh it is going to be a good day.  Well it has been so far at least.  I really do have to start working soon.  But that was a very nice way to start my day.

The quarterly top five link up involves posted my 5 favorite pictures I took of my children and pets.  It is so fun to go back through my pictures of July, August and September.  I take so many pictures and it is nice to see how I've been improving my photo taking skills! All those Tutorial Tuesdays really came in handy.

Well here goes with my top picks.

I edited the above shot with the tips from on one the Tutorial Tuesdays.  I had taken this picture just after Brady cut his own hair and I had to buzz it to clean it up. He still claims Peter Pan did it.  I loved his eyes in the picture and I thought adding the flag to his shot would just be fun.

My future lifeguards.

I loved how Freddy and Tiny's freckles popped in this picture.

First day home from school happy.

Well those were my top five.  But I wanted to add some Honorable Mentions.

"Airplane Arms"

"I See You"

"Apple Sauce"

The boys like to say apple sauce when I take their pictures.

"The Big Slide"

 "Welcome to the Family Blue"


This picture is when I switched to shooting in manual. I started this day and haven't gone back.
