Mission Accomplished

I was so excited with some of the shots I got at the Chinese New Year party on Sunday. Of course, I had so much fun trying out my new toy. This is my favorite one I took of Mia - spinning with her new blue umbrella.


There is one picture I took of a little girl that is my absolute favorite, but I haven't received the mom's permission to post it here. I am, however, going to post some of some women that performed. I was on a mission to get some photos to enlarge and decorate D's room. Mission accomplished. I am really pleased with how they turned out, especially since I took them in the third row (using my 18-200mm lens) and was trying to shoot around people sitting in front of me. I just think all of these women are so beautiful.







I really want to start decorating D's room!! I wanted to wait, hoping that somehow I could find out what her favorite color is and then use that as my starting point. But, I really, REALLY want to start decorating. I'm trying to have patience. Ah, yes, patience................. It's so hard when it seems a new PB Kids or PB Teen catalog arrives in the mail every week!

You know, I tell y'all that I don't post face shots for other reasons, but it's really because I feel completely inferior. Y'all just astound me - love the first shot especially.

Michelle, your pics are incredible!!!!
So sorry I missed you, but your husband was the sweetest thing!!!
I didn't approach the kiddos because I didn't want to freak them out! LOL!
Some other time!
Hugs, Jill

I know you are going to nejoy your camera so much! Wonderful shots I agree, the women are beautiful.

Great pics! I was like you...couldn't wait to decorate Luda's room...we did end up buying some stuff from PB and IKEA and she loves it so she is starting to add in her personality.

Those pictures are beautiful. You got better ones than I did. D will love them.
I love Alex's picture you sent. It is adorable. When I get home from California I will send you the pictures I got of the girls on the steps. They are not as good as I hoped. If one was looking the other had their head completely turned. But there are a couple cute ones.
You showed me the one you were talking about in your post. I can't wait to see it enlarged. It was gorgeous.

Thank you so much for the award on your blog. I just want you to know that I have so enjoyed getting to know you and I value your friendship tremendously and I look forward to more fun with you (and your girls).

See you soon.
