Day 31

Day 31, originally uploaded by AprilMN.

Sundays are so busy and crazy. I had no idea what picture I was going to take. Then I saw my cooking utensils as I was making dinner. I thought this looked pretty cool.

The whisk is my favorite! I get so excited when I get to use it while cooking :)

Day 30

Day 30, originally uploaded by AprilMN.

For my 365 I am not always going with the most technically correct shot, but the most memorable of the day.

I was getting up to get M a drink and he said "it ok, I feed baby" he hopped in my chair and started feeding her. She opened her mouth wide, he was gentle enough to not hurt her (albeit it was messy) but a perfect moment in the day. I am so lucky to be their mommy!!!

Day 28

Day 28, originally uploaded by AprilMN.

In one of the 365 groups I belong to there was a challenge to capture "white." Here is my attempt. I generally like it except the left spoon holder (?) thing is too shadowy.

Does it look like a face to you? Didn't notice until I was processing :)

Day 27

Day 27, originally uploaded by AprilMN.

The clouds finally went away, and the sun came out, so I ran outside for a few minutes (the kids were awake so I had to hurry)

I really love how the branches are pointing upward :)

Day 27 alternates

Here are some more pictures I took today. I only had about 5 minutes to take these. The sun finally came out but the kids were awake, so I ran outside really fast :)

I love the colors and shadows in this one

I really wish it would snow again to add a little spice to this dreary winter :)

Day 26

Day 26, originally uploaded by AprilMN.

Another goal I have for my 365 project is to get a picture of both the kids together once a month. It is a little tricky with a 2 year old, and I am sure will become more exciting as L is more mobile.

This is my favorite of the lot, they look calm and peaceful.

Day 26 alternates

Here are some other pictures of the kids together. M had fun jumping on the bed and L loves to watch him!


I like this profile shot, I think I may try again sometime and make sure to not cut off the bottom of her head.

This was my second place choice :)

Ahh sleep. My kids have been tag teaming at night to keep me up! So to say the least I am tired, tired and tired!

Here is M sleeping in the car on the way to church :)

Crossing my fingers I get some sleep tonight!

Day 20, originally uploaded by AprilMN.

My son has officially given up his precious binkys. I never thought the day would come :)

Day 20 operation no binky

Here are some pictures of me actually throwing the binkys away. It was a little tricky holding the camera and the binkys at the same time. I couldn't quite get the angle I wanted. Either way the deed is done and as my son would say "binks all gone"

Day 19

Day 19, originally uploaded by AprilMN.

My little man is 27 months old. I thought I would use the 365 project to document my kids "birthday" each month.

Nothing too special about this photo except that he is mine and I love him!

This picture pulls at my heart strings :)

Day 18 second place(s)

L was sleeping for a long time today so I thought I would take the chance to go take pictures of her. I love this little girl to pieces. She was especially cute because she had her hands under her head and legs crossed!

Oops, I woke her up :)

Day 16

Day 16, originally uploaded by AprilMN.

Today I had the opportunity to help coach a girls team for my church. The girls seemed to have fun playing, but mostly had fun being with each other.

It brought me back to my volleyball days in college and how much I love my team mates!

Day 15

Day 15, originally uploaded by AprilMN.

Today we went outside again because it was "warm." She looks really cute even though it is her brothers old outfit (see her thumb sticking out the same place as in yesterdays picture)

On DPS (digital photography school) they had a challenge of capturing BLUE, so I thought I would try this out. It didn't really turn out how I wanted but such is life :)

Day 9

Day 9, originally uploaded by AprilMN.

Icicles on our swing set.

My friend let me borrow his tripod, so that was fun. Though I was having a rough time because it was FREEZING, and my camera did not want to focus on the icicles.

This picture is pretty blah to me, but that is what is fun about 365... I can just try again :) oh and wear better gloves next time!
