Children's Museum and Photo Class

Emmie and I went to the Children's museum with our friends Emily and Mya on Saturday. Lincoln has the BEST children's museum. We had a grand time. Here are a few pictures of our fun.

As you know, I am taking a photography class at the community college. Brenden has been such a good sport being my beautiful model. Here are a few from this week's assignment. They made me laugh.

Photo booths

I LOVE photo booths. While we were at the fair we thought it would be fun to get the girls picture taken. We didn't realize that once you put your money in the pictures start going. So the first picture is Carianne putting the money in. Nice torso!

We figured out how to work the machine in this one. Carianne got out just in time. Maybe next year we'll be able to see all of their faces. I love it anyway.

Highlights from Arizona

The State Fair: There is nothing better than fair food and people watching. Notice anything unfortunate in the background?

Emmie's first ferris wheel ride.

The petting zoo. Kate LOVED this sheep. She couldn't stop hugging it. I think Rusty and Carianne should consider getting her one as a pet.

Cousins: These girls are pretty much the cutest.

Halloween: Toto doing her "donkey face".

Grandma's who fly hundreds of miles to be with her granddaughters and are willing to dress up are the best.

Emmie adores her cousins or maybe she was really getting into character.

Kate's pants just wouldn't stay up.

The Pumpkin Patch: There was a hay maze.

Pumpkin decorating.

The Arizona version of the pumpkin patch (no pumpkins were actually grown here).

Grandma and Emmie's hair match the pumpkins.

Pictures: We tried and tried to get Kate and Emmie's picture together with their matching Christmas dresses. Every picture turned out like this...

This is the best we could do. Carianne and Rusty would place them right by each other and then jet as fast as they could. We did find out that Kate can seriously out run Emmie.

After Halloween Slumber Party: What you don't see in this picture is Cora sharing her lollipop with Emmie. What a nice cousin.

Emmie gave this trip a "10".

Halloween 2009

Emmie and I have been in AZ for the past week and got to spend Halloween with all the family. We had tons of fun! I loved everyone's costumes. Here are some pictures...

Cora, Emmie and Jenna as Glinda, Toto, and Dorothy.

Carianne, Rusty and Kate as the Flying Monkey, Lollipop Guild, and Lion.

Gregg and Rachael obviously didn't get the memo that our theme was the Wizard of Oz but their costumes were great anyway.

Jeff aka Buster Bluth. Where is the sea lion?

Rusty and Matthew as the Lollipop Guild.

I was the scarecrow. By the end of the night Toto was pretty much beat (I would like you to know she isn't sleeping she is hiding from the camera and crying).

The whole Wizard of Oz gang! Those that weren't pictured above were Tara as the wicked witch, Mom as a flying Monkey, Linda as the yellow brick road, Dad as the Wizard, and Lorinda as the tin man.

Any requests for next year?
