Photos taken with new tripod

I took these photos of my friend and co-worker with my new tripod. I just love it! We used one of the empty office over a lunch hour. Just natural light.

Dance Rehearsal

The photo above has auto levels run on it. It looks so different from the other ones that don't.

Julia's looking at herself in the dressing room mirror.

The photo above is the same as the first one, but does not have auto levels run on it.

My daughter had her dance rehearsal this morning. We took some photos before the rehearsal, down in the dressing room and then afterwards outside. She also wanted her hair curly, so lastnight I put in 32 tiny sponge rollers! Boy was it curly this morning, but she loves it and it's a different look from her straight hair. Now we just have to get through the recital tonight! And if you notice her earrings in the photos she wanted them like that. One stud and one dangly skull earring!

The Look I Get

This is the look I get when my daughter wants to ride her bike a little bit longer! I sometimes take her to campus so she has more room and no cars around on the big sidewalks.

Every year I try to take photos of my daughter amongst the poppies at my mom and dad's house. Tonight was the night. We've had so much rain here, but today it was clear. The poppies don't last long, so I had to get them while I had the chance. I just love the poppies!

Her Own Style

My daughter has her own style. How do you like the animal print hat with the army vest? Pretty cute, huh? Gotta love her.

Enjoying a gorgeous day!

My daughter enjoying a gorgeous day on my mom and dad's deck. I'm not sure what the raised eyebrows are about.

How did I get so lucky?

How did I get so lucky to have such a beautiful little girl? I'm so thankful to have this gorgeous child in my life. Sometimes I just sit and stare at her because I think she is so incredibly beautiful, and I can't believe I'm her mom. Thank you China for letting me adopt her!

Your Thoughts On Being Seven

So I asked my daughter what her thoughts were on being seven. Here's her answers:
That I can have a boyfriend; that I don't have to take a nap; that I have to do more math; I have more money; I dress better; I make my own bed; and that I am more responsible. I plan on asking her this each year around her birthday and however old she is will be how many thoughts she gives me! It will be fun to see how they differ from year to year.

Digital Layouts

Here's a few of my more recent digital layouts. The top one is my daughter and her best friend on Chinese New Year, the middle one is my daughter in her silk Chinese jacket, and the bottom one was taken of my daughter on campus. The flowers are just gorgeous in the spring. If her eyes look a little puffy in the photo above, it's because she had surgery on them March 16.
