Little Sister Shannon :)

I'm starting to notice a pattern here in these last days of pregnancy. I get a sudden burst of energy and work my tail off for a day, and then the next day...I am completely and utterly useless. So I rest. And then the next day I run around like a mad woman with newfound energy. And then, once again, the next day I can barely move.

Yesterday was one of those barely move kind of days. I needed toothpicks just to keep my eyelids open. BUT... I did manage to get one more thing checked off of my to-do's for the week. My sister and I went out together and took a few senior pictures. :) Whew - am I glad we were able to get it done before little mister comes! It ended up being a really pretty afternoon, though it was late and we were racing the sun for light.

I thought I'd just share a few of my favorites today. You might not know my sister very well...and that would make sense, because she's in high school and well...most of you are not. :) But she's pretty cool. Shannon is 10 years younger than I am, so by the time she was toddling around the house I wasn't home very often. I was off playing with friends and doing my own thing, and then of course I went away to school and then got married and all that jazz. Now that she's a little older it's easier than ever just to hang out. What's ten years between sisters? :)

Before I share these pictures, I just wanted to post a little disclaimer for those that may be new around here that NO, I am not a photographer, nor do I claim to be one. In fact, quite the opposite. I have no idea what I'm doing with my camera. I don't make money off of taking pictures of other people, and I don't plan to start any time soon. I don't even own photoshop or any other editing software. End of disclaimer.

And now, without further ado, Shannon....

We went to three different places yesterday and just goofed around, basically. Haha. Neither my sister nor I had a plan in mind. So we just whipped out the camera and started shooting!

The best thing about taking pictures with your sister, is that you can be yourself and not worry about what the photographer thinks of you. No awkward turtles here. So we captured lots of funny moments, most of which no one else will probably ever see. Luckily for my little sis...I have a blog. :)

You love me, sister. 

Once again pictures on blogger aren't showing up as clearly as they actually are. But that's okay, you can see her face, right? I weeded out about 200 pictures from the ones that we took, and I think I'll share...oh...20 today. Moving on.

All of the next ones are my favorites. :) Just wish they weren't so blurry looking here!

^^ To show you the extent of my photo editing capabilities. Haha.

I took several pictures of Shannon here and didn't realize there was a beer bottle in the shot. Cracks me up!

And oh my, there were lots more. So so many more. But my computer is revolting against me. And I don't even want to tell you what time it is right now. Bed time, that's what time.


It was a good day! I'm going to pay for it today, but it was a good day. :) Now it's back to nesting, and my girls are being too cute at the moment, so I'm signing off. Happy Tuesday!

The ones of her in the field are gorgeous, especially with the way the sun is hitting the trees! Good job at taking great pictures without know what you are doing! lol

Amazing!!!! If you want a great photo editing tool, use PicMonkey. It's free, it's online, and they basically do it for you. You just click through the different options. I use it to make my blog headers.

Well thanks, everyone. :)

Heather - I JUST discovered picmonkey! It's how I've been making collages that fit on the Facebook timeline. I was so super sad when picnik closed down!
