Fus Roh Dang it kids

October 26th, 2015 by KellyJoe

Here comes the next couple installments in the series of my children refusing to pose nicely and together for any pictures involving Halloween things this year. I was like ‘yeah, you guys be pumpkins, it’ll be adorable’ and they were like ‘nah, mom, nah we’re gonna be butts instead’ so that’s how that went.

And after that we went on an adventure to the duck park and I got a cutie picture of stub nose who is my favorite duck at the park. I want him for my own.

Al was off being a toot and not wanting pictures so much. I wanted to go check out some branch teepees someone had been making but it looked like it had become a campground for peeps and so I wasn’t down with taking the kids into there until I knew for sure who was down there.

Then we managed to get out and get our Halloween costume pictures done. Al and Finn had decided to switch and we got really lucky that they fit each other cause I think I would have just screamed and died and burned everything to the ground. It would have been madness. I cranked the ISO up a lot on the camera cause it was pretty dark so the pictures came out grainy, and Al wanted the mittens of course and Finn had to have his baby puppy. I might try and do another shoot later this week but I’m feeling pretty burned out from everything else already. Plus if I neglect my laundry pile anymore it’s going to collapse on me and trap me and I’ll die breathing in the sweet scent of fabric softener.

But I digress, and present to you the dragonborn and a dragon.

That concludes this weeks exciting installment of me barely surviving and scraping my life together one sippy cup and diaper at a time. This could be the end of me. Adios.

Can you die from eating too many tomatoes? Because holy crap we have been eating and receiving so many tomatoes. I might try out making spaghetti sauce tomorrow to cut down on some of them. It’s out of control.

Also, it’s that time of year! The time where the kids dress as skeletons and refuse to take really good pictures surrounded by pumpkins because they’re a couple of skeleton butts!

Still, kinda cute. I got two more sessions for them planned, one of them being their costumes which are SO close to being done! I just have to track down a brown tan top for Finn’s and then that’s it, it’s finally over. I’m so stoked for Halloween! Best holiday everrrrrrrrrr.

Yo, whats up. I finally grabbed that scrap of paper off of the fridge and got back to doing our adventures. Unfortunately I am not as well practiced in pictures as I was when I was doing them all the time so my goal is to get out with the camera at least five days a week now. Since you probably can’t read the paper it says go on a nature hike.

Finn was less than thrilled with the idea of being out and about. Not really though, he just has a booger nose.

Well, October is upon us and it’s the best everrrrr! I took some fun creepy pictures in the woods. They didn’t come out as well as I had hoped but they were still fun and good practice. My only real regret on them was that I couldn’t get him and the cockroach to listen and do what I want at the same time. They were just unwilling to work together for me.

I wanted to test it with a cooling filter but I think I still prefer the warming one.

Also, it’s hard to get a good focus on a cockroach it turns out, even when they’re not moving.

I was kind of all over with the warming filters and how I was doing them but it was the first time I had ever really applied them or done a vignette so I was testing it out.

Today Ty and I went and explored the salt lake city cemetery at last. So many cool statues and graves.

This is the EMO grave, one of the local haunts. It originally had a window in it looking in on a vase but it had a panel covering that unfortunately. I speculate that people have been breaking it or doing something equally jerky, I haven’t looked into it.

This is the interesting grave we originally went looking for. It’s a mystery and super strange. Also it appears to be big with the younger crowd who think that it’s a good idea to leave her cigarettes and motorhead tickets.. So yeah. Also allen wrenches?

I was excited to see a wood grave! This is only the second time I’ve seen them!

And that’s it for now. I have so much more planned. I love October, this is seriously the best month with the funnest things to do.
