Here's the latest for my photography class! This week's assignment: water. I took a more macro view on this assignment. As always, Scout tagged along because for some reason she finds my taking pictures extremely interesting.
Awwww! I love my Scouty!!!
Water on the pine trees!
Water on a THISTLE!
Since there's an abundance of pine up here in the Valley of Pine, here's MORE WATER ON PINE NEEDLES!!
A wet, wet apple.
And another sweaty apple!

Well, Spanksgiving is coming up. Hopefully I'll get some uber-rad pictures of the old Fam Damily that I can share with all of thee. Hey, thanks for reading my humble blog! Happy Thanksgiving to y'all!

If You EVER Doubted How Cute I Am...

Then let me just show you how cute I WAS!

I'm having so much fun on that bike!
Dad's old motorcycle...
Thanksgiving one year at G&G Pratt's place
Awwww! Brotherly love.
I still get sleepy after huge meals to this day!
Holy crap. We are SO FLIPPING CUTE!
Dad and ME at Veyo pool!!!
Mmmmm... DIRT! Delicious!
Please note my cape and uh... skirt?
Taylor looks JUST LIKE PAYSON! I wish I could wear socks like that today.
Okay, that's not me as a little kid, but I did come across this picture from when I worked at Rocky Point Haunted House. (The scariest haunted house in America, so said FANGORIA.) Yes, that REALLY IS ME.
I think this was one of Laura's birthdays. Me, Grandpa, Colin on Grandpa's lap, Taylor with something in his mouth, and Laura. Does that doll have a party hat on too?
Ahhh... my beefier days. Taylor, Laura, Colin, my chubby red-headed self (hair is dyed, of course) and Madre. Dad took the picture.

Apparently the Grinch stole Laura's Christmas!

These are posted mainly for my own amusement, but if someone else can get amusement from them as well, then so be it. Until next time! TOODLES!

We're skipping right over to Christmas this year! We put up two of our three trees, just because we were in the mood to!
This year, we put ONLY red lights and red ornaments on the 6 foot tree. Instead of putting it up in the family room, we put it in the front room. And instead of putting it on the ground, we put it on a table so now it almost touches the ceiling in the pioneer house! It looks SO FLARKING RAD! I only put one picture in, because the red was REALLY overwhelming. Haha... so there it is!
Below is our NATURE tree! Totally Mom's idea! We took branches from some of our cottonwood trees, and put them in the Christmas tree! We also got real bird's nests, (that'll be a bitch when they come back for the spring and find all their homes gone!) and pine cones all from our yard. It's rad-tastic!
Below is the tree all lit up for the night!
Below is one of the bird nests that we swiped from the great outdoors.
Below... if only we had the tree up when we were doing our "reflection" project for photography class!!! Sonofa... oh well. I love that picture, though!
And finally, THIS is what the two trees look like from outside when you are walking up to our dining room door! Don't you just LOVE IT???
Thanksgiving is for Fa-la-la-la-LOSERS! It's just filler between the two most important holidays of the year: Halloween and Christmas! Take that you dumb PILGRIMS!

This week's assignment for photography class is "Wisdom." My reflection pictures, proud of them as I was, were SO TYPICAL. Almost everyone else in the class had stuff reflecting off water. So this week, I want to step outside the box and bring an interesting photo to class. I hope to have something the rest of the students hadn't considered taking a picture of. So I'm NOT GOING TO TAKE A PICTURE OF MY GRANDPA'S FACE! Something tells me the entire class is going to bring in pictures of old people.
So here's one I just snapped real quickly while I was at the college library. It's not a final picture, just a jumping off photo. I thought, books? Wisdom? Yes? No? Feedback, and also suggestions on other pictures that could portray "wisdom" without just going cliche with the old people, would be SO GREATLY APPRECIATED! Thanks, y'all!

These are posted on Facebook as well... but for some reason I feel they don't have the same impact when they're shoved all together with someone saying "Just got home from work, and I'm SO TIRED," a poll asking what your favorite Care Bear is, and a quiz to see what your munchkin name would be. So I give you, my entries for this week's photography class.

These were all taken in Pine Valley with exception of the rising sun reflecting on the black glass, which was taken at Dixie State College!

Well, there I am on the left.
If only I had the $$$ to make it a truly awesome Willy Wonka costume! Laura was Elliot from "Scrubs," and Matt was Dr. House. That little rooster is Payson.
