Watch-It Wednesday...Or, Maybe Not?

It's been a day or two since I posted. I blame it on the death of Sophie (my camera), because a post without pictures is simply no fun, and while we have other cameras, they're just not as convenient as Sophie is. Or, was. Before she "popped off as you might say" (who knows the quote?? :).

ANYWAY, today being Wednesday, I typically post a video - but that's not going to happen this time. I have decided to take a break from all videos one can/would watch on the computer. And if I can't watch them neither shall you - no internet videos for any of you...EVER!!!

Ok, just kidding, because youtube is still up, running, and fully functional. You can watch whatever you want.

But there will be nothing here to watch for a month.

All clear?

Fabulous, let's move on.

As I mentioned before, my lack of posts has been largely due to a lack of pictures. We had some lovely, actually warm days - but sunshine spoken of is not the same as sunshine shown. We had two very fun days with the Littles this past weekend, when Mama, Daddy, and 3 Middles went to the Christian Heritage Homeschool Conference - but smiles from playing games under a fort in the great room are simply not as contagious when read from a page, rather than seen on a Little's face. And let's face it  - you don't care to read or see that the whole family was subjected to the stomach flu for a three-week period.

Finally, however, I have some pictures! Emily, Kaytra, and I decided rather sporadically the other day to do a photo shoot. We pulled into a field, picked our way through the mud - arms full of books, teacups, blankets, and cameras - and spent an hour or so happily snapping pictures. A couple things you should know (and will prob be able to tell) about the three of us....

1. We're book addicts. Wholly, unashamedly, and ecstatically.

2. We are never goofy. Ever.

3. We kind of like a vintage flair.

...and then we just have some smiles :)

I already posted this picture, but - it's my personal favorite of Em's :)

I don't know if it's the coloring, her experssion...but I love this pic of Kaytch!


(oh yeah, we're also tea addicts...add it to the list :)

Do you see my ring? It's an authentic vintage piece -
belonged to GrandMary (my great-grandma)

Are you pictured-out? Good...'cause I still don't have a Sophie replacement! Out of pure laziness, I haven't attributed each photo to the photographer - but you already know it was a combination of the three of us, right? Have a cheery Wednesday: take a picture of three, seemingly insignificant, things that make you smile today - and add them to your blessings list!

Love the post! So cute!! I love books, too. I love books. Did I already say that? I love old books, especially. Love the photos. I understand about doing posts with photos. Couldn't do any myself without them. Love the outfits on the lovely girls. So feminine.

I could look at the results of your girls's photo shoot for hours--all the photos turned out amazingly! No videos for a does it feel so far? I think this means now we'll have more time to get together, right? (-;

Sophie died?! NOOO!!! I whole heartedly send my condolences to you, Sarah.
And I love these pictures! Needless to say (but still important), you ladies are beautiful both inside and out!
Miss you Sarah! It's seems like--ahem, it HAS been nearly forever since I've seen you! Can't wait till this Saturday. :)

Thanks, all! We have such fun practicing with pictures!
Lucia, the cameras used for the shoot were a Nikon D40 and a Canon Ti1 (I think). :)
