Latest Photography Purchase

Posted by danaandtammy on Saturday Jan 29, 2011 Under Kid Pictures, Photographs

Our latest photography purchase was a humongous 50 in by 50 in softbox. I set it up this eveing, and once again Kenny just walked over into position to get a picture taken of himself. I couldn’t get a smile, but the light looks nice.

Out In the Snow

Posted by danaandtammy on Friday Jan 28, 2011 Under Kid Pictures, Photographs

The weather finally warmed up a little bit. Highs in the mid 20s feel pretty good after sub-zero temperatures. Papa Swany did some snow blowing in our backyard so the kids could play out on our swing set. Lots of fun to be had sliding on the slide and making snow angels.

We have some Norwegian blood in us, thus the hat which is actually daddy’s.

Passport Pictures

Posted by danaandtammy on Monday Jan 17, 2011 Under Kid Pictures, Photographs, Travels

Emma, Lily, and Lanie needed some passport pictures taken so we set up some umbrellas and flashes in our basement. Everyone was very cooperative, especially Lily and Lanie.

When I got our “studio lights” out, Kenny walk directly over to the wall to get his photo taken. This doesn’t usually happen.

Lily was first. She did a great job of smiling.

Emma wanted one with her “daughter.”

The friends, Lily and Lanie (Lanie is cousin Landry’s “daughter”).

Lanie’s passport picture also turned out nice.

Here was Emma’s keeper. Emma needs to renew her passport because Tammy and her are going to China in March during spring break. Kenny and dad would like to go, but the trip would require dad to miss some school and 12 hours on a plane is extra tough for 2 year olds. Also, the vouchers that we got for volunteering to be bumped from our flights at Christmas paid for their two tickets.

This was Emma’s passport picture for her first passport. Oh how time flies.

This is one of those pictures that Kenny probably will wish was never posted. After we were done with the passport pictures, Kenny wanted to do a little bike riding and we didn’t have his blue boy bike in the basement.

His sister was helping, but at times a little boy doesn’t want his sister’s help.

Mall of America with the Birthday Girl

Posted by danaandtammy on Thursday Jan 13, 2011 Under Birthdays, Kid Pictures, Photographs, Special Events

After present opening, we picked up Cousin Landry, and headed to the Mall of America. The amusement park, Nickelodeon Universe, gives anyone a free unlimited wristband on their birthday. The park was virtually empty so no lines. Also, chaperones ride free, so Tammy and I got to ride on a lot of the rides too.

Birthday lunch was at the American Girl Cafe. There are special seats for the dolls, and the entire menu was able to be made gluten free for mom.

Emma’s Present Opening

Posted by danaandtammy on Thursday Jan 13, 2011 Under Holidays, Kid Pictures, Photographs, Special Events

It is tradition in our house for the kids to open birthday presents right away in the morning. So this year at about 6:50am the opening started. Highlights were some American Girl travel accessories.

Our little “geek” likes to help with the videoing.

Our Friend Jack’s Birthday

Posted by danaandtammy on Friday Jan 7, 2011 Under Birthdays, Kid Pictures, Photographs

A close friend of Emma and Kenny’s just turned 4. He invited everyone over for a pajama birthday party. Tammy and I even wore pajamas. It was lots of fun with cupcakes, pizza, limbo, and playing in a toybox.

Kenny loves to blow out candles so as you look at the next three pictures you can see him doing his best to help Jack.
