Cabinet painting and pictures.

Okay, isn't she the cutest flower? Good thing I have Jethro to be my smile-getter. He's very good at it.
Well, the cabinet painting is going slower than expected. Isn't that always the way with home improvements? So, I'm pretty tired of it, but I think we're more than half way, I think. It takes a lot more coats of paint than you would think. (Okay, not a lot more, just maybe 1 or 2 more. But then, I guess had I thought about it, I would have thought it would take that many. I just never thought about it ahead of time.) So yeah, I will be very happy when it is done. BUT, a cool thing is, I bought a paintbrush at Lowe's and was an instant winner, and I checked my prize and it was a $10.00 off coupon. So, the next day when I bought another gallon of paint, it was less expensive. Yahoo.

I was taking some pictures today. I like this one because sometimes random people see me, in the store or something, and they say "You've got your hands full," with the meaningful look. And most the time they are saying it in a very nice way while opening the door for me or something, but every once in a very great while (when I'm on the defensive for some reason) I think "Do I look COMPLETELY incompetent?" So this picture makes me think, yes, I guess I do look like I have my hands full. And it's fun....kinda lets you feel the movement going on. At least I thought so.

Hazel put on Brett's hat and said, "I Daddy-Bett." And of course, then she says, "And Daddy, you Hazel-bean." Ha ha. She's too funny. Whenever we play that game (where she's mommy and I'm Hazel) I'm always impressed with how well she remembers. She never messes up and accidentally calls me Mommy. She likes to say "I lub [love] you, Hazel." And I say, "I love you too, Mommy."

I can't wait to see pics when you're done with your cabinets! Okay, these pics are too cute... yup, all of them. Your little flower is adorable, and that last one of Hazel in the hat is so sweet. I love the movement you captured in the one of your hubby and kiddos.

You had asked about my settings when I shoot... it varies, but I usually switch between AV and manual. I never use a flash cause I only have my on camera flash and I hate it, so I often end up with a much higher ISO than I'd like... maybe someday I'll get a fancy flash :) What kind of camera do you use?

GREAT photo of the kids and Brett. That is classic. It made me realize you really do have your hands full. You seem to do a good job of taking care of what really matters--and taking lots of cute photos even if you are busy. :)
