Family Pictures

Here are the promised family pictures. I think that they actually turned out alright considering I took all the pictures with a tripod and a remote. I framed them all up and then went to where I told Jason not to move from and snapped the pictures. Though, I think that Jason took a step pretty much every time or the wind blow and moved my tripod because almost every set up was off by a little. So the majority of the poses were not usable because someone was cut off. But I do still think that we still got some cute pictures anyway.

Duck Pond

At the Library we go to, there is a pond behind it that we love going to. Emerson loves to run around it and look at the ducks. The ducks actually flock toward you as you walk by...I am assuming because they thing that you are going to feed them. We decided that we were going to take our family pictures there this time. This is were I we took my maternity pictures when I was pregnant with Emerson as well and it is just so pretty there. I will post the family pictures later. But here are some other shots we got while we were there.

A bag and a duck.

Last week, I finally sat down and sewed this bag. I love it. It is the perfect size and I think that it is super cute.
Isn't the duck so cute in the picture. It insisted in being in even looks like it is posing in this next one. To funny!
I started on another bag, so I will get some pictures of it as soon as it is done. Maybe we will go back and get the pictures with the duck.

Dancing Boy

Today, Emerson was just sitting there when he saw this hat. So he went and grabbed it and put it on. Then, he started dancing. It was so cute. He is so silly.

New Lens!

This weekend, I went to an Estate Sale that my friends were in charge of. They offered some of their friends a chance at a presale, but I didn't take advantage of it. I went to the sale for one thing specifically. The Canon 100mm macro lens. I just had to have it. There was a chance that it was already gone, but I just had to go see. When I got there I search for and just couldn't find it anywhere. I asked about it and someone told me that some guy was looking at the lenses and he must have bought it. I was so sad.

The next day, I got a call from my friend telling me that they had found it!!!! I immediately went and bought it.
Here are some of the pictures that I have taken with it in my first time playing with it. I did these all indoor, so they are pretty close up because it is such a narrow lens. But I still love them.
(He still had to get the cheeser in at some point.)

I just LOVE my new lens! And the model isn't too bad himself.

I love finding good buys. The other day I was walking through Ross, just browsing. When I turned the glanced down one of the isles, I saw this beauty for only $25. I was so excited. I have been wanting one of these irons for sewing for so long. I just haven't been able to justify the $75-$125 price tag.

I pulled it out and used if the first time yesterday. I couldn't believe how much better is maked my fabrics look. I even decided to try to iron some of Jason's shirts (which is almost unheard of in this house) that my old iron just couldn't get the wrinkles out of ever, and they turned out nice and crisp. I love this new iron!

Easter Time

The Easter Bunny made it to our house this year. Emerson loved it.At first he had no idea what he was getting into, but then he found is basket and then was in heaven the rest of the day.
In my family, the Easter Bunny "hides" the baskets. So I told the Easter Bunny that I wanted to carry that tradition on in my little family. Emerson is still a little to young to hid it in the dryer with clothes over it, so his was pretty simple. I think he only found it because he was curious why the pillows were around his table.
The first thing he did when he found his basket was reached to the bottom to find the fruit snacks and smarties. Smart boy. He know where to find the good stuff.
While we watched General Conference, we died some eggs. Emerson liked it for a few minutes until he wasn't allowed to wander around with the cups. This caused a huge melt down. That is when he colored, and Jason and I died the eggs.
*Easter outfit pictures are still to come. We are having our Easter church program this Sunday, so I decided to wait on the outfit until then.

Easter Egg Hunt at the Zoo

We took Emerson to the Oregon Zoo today in all the rainy wet weather to go on a Easter Egg Hunt. He loved being out in the rain. I was quite surprised how well he did at the hunt. Right before it started we told him it is time to clean up, so when it was time he just said "clean up clean up" while picking up all the fun prizes on the floor. It was super cute.
Here is the fruit of his labors.
