Just me and my pig.....

So I saw Michelle's Jenna with her Betty the Bunny photos on her blog and I just had to take some with Gracie and her pig. Jenna and Gracie have the same bunny but she wanted to use the pig...we have the whole farm series...they are cute and so soft. Michelle's photos are outside in beautiful flowers and some stuff like wheat (I have no clue what types of flowers are except begonia because they'll live through a tornado just about (yes, if anyone is wondering...they are still alive...a BIG HIGH FIVE please)! Anywho, I have to settle for inside...it's so stinkin' hot here and I've got nothing like Michelle's bg around here...bummer! =)

On another note.....I have a gecko in my house! That little bugger is one tricky and sly critter....I see him in the morning and when I got get something to trap him in, he disappears. I know he's mocking me......and I just shiver at the thought of waking up at night and stepping on him or worse yet....him getting in the bed. We imply the catch and release program here, but he's really pushing my buttons...I'm not sure if I can do the right thing. Knowing that little fellow, he'd come right back in! =)

I love them all! I love the shadow off to the right - too. I need to get my camera out and take some pictures. Sometimes I just have to keep it put away until I feel creative again. Seeing all of your tutu pictures makes me want to pull some of Savannah's out. Love your pictures!

Brenda, these are AWESOME!!! I love every single one and she is going to love you for it when she get older! I used to never want "Betty" in the pictures, till I realized how much she loved that thing and how it was HER, so now I let her whenever she wants. I actually have one of her & Betty on a 20x30 canvas over her bed!

Thanks Stacy...I always check yours out...LOVE it! =)

I know where you're coming from...it's hard not to pick it up but I just get so frustrated when I don't get anything, so I've learn to put it away too. =)

They are by Manhattan Toy Company...google that and you should be set..they are called the tip-toe series...they are soo soo cute! =)

Oh, I want to see that canvas...I'm bet it's AMAZING! Thanks as always and for the inspiration too...I need it and I took one look at those photos of Jenna and just knew I had to try it. I figure when Gracie is 16 and won't talk to me and all she has are boys on the brain, I can look at these and remember how sweet she was! =)

Shannon....LOL about the money...they learn young don't they? =)

I remember the ones of Lumpy and Sean....some of my favs! Thanks sweetie! =)

Thanks so much...and as of today (7/13), that little bugger is still roaming freely around my house! I'm determined to catch him now! =)

Thanks sweetie...that one is my fav too. I get more of her goofy faces lately than smiles..I just go with the flow instead of fighting it....it's not worth it. =)

Thanks so much!

hi Brenda!
I love these-- I'm so jealous you're taking that class with Amanda. You were already rockin, now you're just amazing!

Confession: My DD has a monkey by the same company that makes Gracie's pig. I like him so much that when my Camryn gets tired of me taking her picture I turn the camera on him!
Love the new header. Loved the old one too.

Thank you so much! It's sad what we have to turn to to practice isn't it....I bet that was one willing model.....good practice with slower shutter speeds too! =)

My husband wants them around too...he tells me all the time they eat bugs....well, I'd rather not have either of them personally...they just make me all jittery and stuff. He's still around here....I see him every once in awhile. =)

Thanks sweetie....my personal cheerleader! You always lift my spirits! =)

Thanks too...I like that one also...I'm thinking of blowing that one up big....it's just so her! =)
