Warmer, Warmer

I’ve hardly picked up my camera at all this year, so here are the few self-portraits I’ve taken as we approach warmer weather.

Lately on Catstagram

I’m sure many of you are familiar with Instagram by now, alternatively known as “Catstagram” because it is sometimes overrun with cat photos. For me it also doubles as “Foodstagram” and “PicturesInMyMirrorstagram.”

You might have noticed my blog has been pretty thin the last few months. To tell you the truth, my camera hasn’t gotten much action. I’m thankful I have Instagram to have fun with photos in a more light-hearted manner. It’s a nice supplement since I haven’t been best buddies with my DSLR lately.

The three box photos were all taken on the same day. He couldn’t decide which box he loved the most (and there was even a another smaller box further complicating his decision). Second-to-last photos are Leonardo on top of the dryer, which he somehow only recently discovered. No idea what took him so long! And the last photo was taken while we were hiding out during a tornado warning.

I promise my next post will be not Leonardo-centric!

Prompted 365: October


2 October: Guilty Pleasure
This is what happens when I leave bread out. Leonardo eats through the plastic to get just a few bites.


3 October: Faded


4 October: Down


5 October: Brown
I bought that bag for the trip we took to Vegas!


6 October: Creation


7 October: Purity


9 October: Hair


13 October: Problem
I can’t recall why I decided to take this picture for the day’s prompt…


14 October: Fantasy


16 October: Smart
Hiking in Las Vegas (more of that here). Smart footwear!


17 October: Give Up
This happened twice! You can see the rest of my Vegas photos at my Travel tag.


20 October: Wish
The Rangers were in the World Series! But yet again they were #2.


21 October: Mask
I had this mask after for a skit I did for a class. Creepy, isn’t it?


22 October: Forgetful
I memorize kanji well enough for quizzes, but after that I just can’t hold onto it.


23 October: Insanity
You know things that you really shouldn’t like but still do? These grocery store cookies are horrible, but I somehow can’t help but love them.


24 October: Vacation
Back from Las Vegas but still behind on laundry.


28 October: Progress
Our house is a constant work in progress. These branches in the vase are a new addition!


29 October: Fashion


30 October: Stamp

February Family

The second installment of photos from visiting our families in Houston a few weeks ago!


My niece Daphne playing with a roly-poly.


Alena playing with my old dollhouse.


Daphne could kill someone with this look!


I hope you remember my beautiful nephew Lennon. This is his perfect little family!


The whole group!


I brought in the crocheting project I’ve been working on, but as soon as the girls saw, they insisted I teach them. They gave up pretty easily, though, and instead enlisted me in making them these cute headbands (Alena had a necklace instead–I didn’t get a picture). Avery was posing (“like I’m graduating!”) with the Nancy Drew books I gave her for Christmas.


I’m not really sure if Joseph is up to this whole uncle business. I mean, come on. Stealing bottles from the baby? Not cool.


The next day we met Joseph’s family in The Woodlands for lunch.


After we ate, we spend a couple hours wandering Hubbell & Hudson, where Joseph and I bought some of our favorites from Italy–the tea we drank a lot but haven’t been able to find back here, Hits cookies, and speck (proscuitto).

Lennonberry

You might remember my nephew Lennon from a post last year. Well, it turns out he is some sort of mutant baby who ages at double-speed. He just passed his first birthday but looks at least two years old, doesn’t he? But he is still just about the most beautiful creature I have ever seen, so I’ll pardon his making me extremely confused.

His parents let me borrow him for some photos, which really were not difficult to get. Besides being gorgeous, he is extremely well-tempered! The best baby ever, truly.


Alena asked for a picture with her baby brother too!
