Can you say Ham?????

Maybe its because they have been raised with a camera stuck in there face?  I don't know for sure what it is, but most ALL the children in our family are hams, when it comes to the camera.

Over the weekend while all the kids were together, I of course had to snap some pictures.  The kids were playing hide and go seek in the woods behind my Daddy's house.  I love those woods.  I can remember "building" tree houses out there.  Really all we did was rack leaves into "rooms" and make that our special area.  I think some of the junk is still out there that we used in our "rooms". 

Back to the point, the kids were playing so I thought I would snap some pictures.

 

First thing, they start to pose.  :)

After all that fun I went back up to the house and took some pictures of "C" in the leaves.  He was hard at work!

Syd was there helping him, and this is what would happen when I took her picture.

I have a question?  Is everybody as busy and overwhelmed as me???????  I promise one day I will be better at my blogging.  I wont leave you hanging for as long as I have. :(

One thing has been accomplished though.  I have finished Twilight and I am now on New Moon.  Why didn't someone warn me about this next booK??? Its sad...so far at least. :(

Great pictures! New Moon I know Brinsley was going to refuse to read it I was mad! Keep reading though!

Valerie said...

Great pictures Valarie. I am feeling a little overwhelmed myself. Haven't decorated, haven't done any shopping. I just don't want to get out there right now. Work, home, work and home that's all I feel like doing. Well, to be honest I don't really feel like work. lol Have a good day!

mah-meeee said...

Yeah... totally with you about this blogging thing. I've been slacking in reading and posting! I think it's the holidays and as Moms we are probably all reallly tired out.

Great pix!

Tamara Jansen said...

what beautiful memories? Can you imagine living in the days before cameras were invented?! Never being able to look back at pictures to remember how things used to be?

Trina said...

Hams are the best...they sure offer the BEST pictures!

Debbie said...

What great pictures. I carry my camera in my purse and I'm feeling really bad that I have not used it in weeks. Busy or not you make me want to stop and snap a few - for that I say thank you.

What a great way to keep up. I love your photos. Try to enjoy the season. We tend to think we have to do it all and it is overwhelming. It is even worse with grandchildren, because you know how fleeting the time with them is. Blessings Memaw Barbie

LOL! My children are the same way. I love the last shot!

How are you into New Moon? I totally didn't expect the beginning to be that way.

Jessica said...

Jules from "The Roost" said...

I love all the little "hams" ;0)

Tammy said...

Love your photos and the kids are just darlin'!

Sarah @ ThriftyDecorChick said...

YES overwhelmed. I always say I'm not going to do it next year, and I always do. I do love it though. And I've been dying to read Twilight and my sis got it and read it in about two days. I am starting it soon...after Christmas I'm sure. :)

Amanda@Imperfectly Beautiful said...

She is a ham, but a beautiful ham, nonetheless!

I am so glad you decided to read the Twilight series. They are so stinkin addicting!

jennifer said...

Glad to hear from you!! I love the pictures. Syd is a GORGEOUS ham.

And I am on Eclipse. I have slowed down on my reading some though.

And I almost went to see the movie again this afternoon. Would have if my family wasn't calling me every five minutes because I was not at home. I guess I am loved.

Suzie said...

I gonna start Twlight on my trip next week. Should I is it too sad?

marky said...

Looks like a very enjoyable day!

Leigh said...

Thanks you! I am glad to know I am not the only one feeling overwhelemd. And I have beceom such a slacker at sommenting-though I read daily on blogger dashboard. I need to step it up. I feel like a turd in a toilet bowl!
Annyway....LOve the pics. I espcailly LOVE the last pic. GReat one!

Ashley said...

Oh, Valarie! I just finished New Moon this very morning! I don't like it near as much as the Twilight for obvious reasons which you know if you are reading now. I blogged about it today. Ugh! I'm ready for Eclipse!

... and yes. I feel very busy. And I feel like I am just rushing through all my daily blog reads. I wish I had time to really enjoy each and every post of each and every fascinating blog I find. This gets very hard though with so many added to the list each day (oh - and along with all the other responsibilities of day to day life)!
