I thought I'd end the week with a few loose strings and miscellaneous items I wanted to wrap up.

#1: Bone Watch 2009

Yesterday, I heard Bebo

growling at Bacon, and came to find him strong arming his way into taking this puny, old, nasty chewie Lily had dug out from under the couch for Bacon the day before.

And I'd like to point out that sometime around mid-evening on Day 1 of The Chewie Saga, both ginormous chewies disappeared, and I knew Bebo had something to do with it. I never got around to looking for them, and returning one to Bacon, until I saw that ridiculous scuffle over that pathetic tiny chew. A quick review of the underneaths of our living room furniture uncovered the secret chewie booty. Right here, snugly wedged between Bebo's favorite chair and the wall. Note the random candy wrapper.

That Rascal.
Moving on.
#2: On Wednesday we were getting things ready for AWANA, and the girls decided to do a little impromptu photo shoot. I complied, and delighted them with a rare opportunity to use my DSLR. Really, with the strap in place and nothing nearby to accidentally knock it on, it's pretty safe to hand it over. I love to see them wrap their tiny hands around the heavy body, peeking seriously and sternly through the viewfinder, concentrating on finding the right moment to press the button. I always set it to spot focus, and teach them to stand still against a wall, place the square between the faces or eyes, then press it a little to get it to turn red (focus) and then shoot. They don't just click. They think about it- and give ideas to their subjects for poses or when it's time to snuggle and just love on each other. I love that. They each took a small handful of shots. Here's a couple. None of them are cropped- this is just how they shot them (Black and White conversion by me, of course).
Patience took it.

Grace took it.

And I took this one- one of those hold your arm out far, quick snapshots. I didn't crop this one either- pretty straight, huh? I was proud. Almost as proud as I was of my little budding photogs.

#3: On another note, I've continued to burn- and salivate over- this candle, and have decided that if Jim Halpert, Hugh Jackman, McDreamy, and Mr. Darcy (yes I realize that's a mix of fictional and real people)- if they were morphed into one man, who was kind-hearted, gentle, strong, humble, witty, extremely intelligent and in love with Jesus, he'd be a force to be reckoned with. And he'd smell just like that candle.
Speaking of forces to be reckoned with,
#4: check out that bulging tummy and chubby arm combo on my little man...

I came to the realization that in just this past week of posts, every single member of our household, including all 4 pets, has made an appearance, save for Hudson.
Wuv you Buddy.

great pics! looks like you have some budding photographers on your hands!
How do you get your photos so big in your posts? I have the largest size selected and it is still fairly small.
