Someday I will get a nice camera. Mine died several months ago, and I've been using Cambree's. It's a fine camera for her, but I hate it. Ah, well... Oh, and a nice editing program. Then I could have some real fun..lol

Funny photos

I stopped at the park on the way home from church Sunday to take some pics. I'll post the ones that 'turned out' next.

Ella screeched at the camera..
and ran full speed ahead pretty much the whole time. Made for taking pictures kind of hard. haha (and drew lots of attention)

"Mom, help, she's kissing me again."

Duane asked if he could do a silly face first & a grumpy face last. "Sure, go ahead."
I had Easter baskets for them they didn't know about. Just that if they were good they would get a really cool prize. Well it was the most hilarious thing. Duane was being too obedient. I start taking his pic. and he has this fake cheesy smile. Trying to get a more natural pic. I tell him " Um, just be serious." haha..His neck cranes forward and his eyes bug out. That didn't work. "Um, just relax." His shoulders slump and he closes his eyes...lol!

My failed attempt at having Cambree take a pic. of me & Ella-

"Come on Ella, look at Cambree."

Maybe if I play pat-a-cake with her..

No such luck...

She seen the swings. Can't blame her I guess:)

Lovin' it!
All done....

Four little cousins...

all dressed in white...

We went to Justin & Diana's for a Easter dinner and I snapped these pics of the little girls. The lighting/reflections/glare is horrible. But, hey, the girls are cute!:) ~Ella~


I think she had enough of this whole picture thing..lol

decorating eggs

Romans 6:8-11
Now if we died with Christ, we believe that we will also live with him. For we know that since Christ was raised from the dead, he cannot die again; death no longer has mastery over him. The death he died, he died to sin once for all; but the life he lives, he lives to God. In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:10-12
I want to know Christ and the power of his resurrection and the fellowship of sharing in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, and so, somehow, to attain to the resurrection from the dead. Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.

John 11:25-26

Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die.

ready & waiting

So, what do I do with this?

Ah, I see.
