Pure Joy

I took some photos of the girls in the backyard tonight for the We Picture [This] Joy theme. I could only post two on that blog, but I had so many favorites to choose from, so I'm posting some more here. Most of them were of Mia because Leila was in another part of the backyard playing soccer with Nolan. These are probably some of my favorite pictures ever. They each speak joy to me.

These are the two I chose to post on We Picture [This]



Here are some of my other favorites:













"OK, Mommy. I done now."

How did you choose?!?!? I needed you at the pumpkin patch with me on Friday. I'm trying to be some photo pro and use my manual zoom and lots of my pictures came out just a bit out of focus. Maybe I should just stick to automatic. I'll just envy your beautiful shots for now. ;)

BTW, love the new blog design!!!!
