{Pretty, Happy, Funny Real} August 23

round button chicken


Special K is such a little helper.  She loves to work with me when I'm experimenting around with photography.  She is definitely one of my favorite subjects.

Here she is again with Lil' Lamb.  I love this photo, even if it is a little orangey looking.


Lil' Lamb has learned to ham it up for the camera.

I just love that crooked little smile and the mischievous look in his eyes.


Skoshi A likes to be photographed, but only on her terms.  During this session she just wanted to make goofy faces.  She's more into self portraits than cooperating with her mother as photographer.  She even got Special K goofing around with her.


This is called a "goat head".  They are an evil, evil, pervasive weed here.  They get caught in little bare feet and will blow the tires on most any vehicle.  We've had to pull them out of all the kids feet and have replaced several bike tires, a stroller tire, and a wheel barrow tire.  They are evil.  They must be pulled out by the root and thrown into the trash, because when these guys dry out, they are even more evil and treacherous.  I spent an hour pulling these from the gravel in front of our house.  Thankfully, one of our wonderful neighbors stopped by and as we chatted, she dug right in and yanked a few of these bad boys for me too.  Have I mentioned what a wonderful neighborhood we live in?

Goatheads are EVIL! I do not miss those. Have you tried getting some of the liquid goo tire filler for you bikes and tractor tires? It works really great.

Wow, I'm really scared of that plant! I have never even heard of it! Thanks for posting :)
