Family and Halloween pictures

Life has been very busy and I haven't been able to blog. Finally, I have a chance to do some. The other day I thought that I would try something new. I would take our own family pictures. I don't have the software that makes the fog around the edges (I plan on getting that after Christmas) so they don't look quite professional, but I thought they turned out pretty well. Here are the better ones that were taken. I didn't get to take alot, #1 Chris hates to take pictures, #2 we were on a bridge that had big cracks in it and Joshua was scared.

Me and my wonderful hubby.
My two beautiful kids. I really liked this one.

This one was pretty good, too.

Our family picture. I wish my smile was better, not sure what I was doing. But everyone else was really good, so I picked this one.

Our trick-and-treat pictures.

We went with cousins and had alot of fun and the kids got lots of candy. (l-r) Lincoln, Riley, Madelyn

Also for my great grocery shopping trip this week. I had to buy some deoderant, fabric softener, diapers and I got a few extra things that was not on my list like toilet paper, bananas, shredded cheese. The toilet paper(white cloud) it was a 4pk. big rolls = 8 rolls was $1 after my coupon, bananas were $.59/lb. so I got 4lbs. and the shredded cheese was $1.66 @ Krogers so I got 2 pks. to put in my freezer. My diapers were$7.68, I had a $2 coupon so I paid $5.68.
My total for groceries and neccessities for this week was $62.00. I was very happy.

hey, just thought I'd share a website that might help with the editing - It's not super advanced, but you can do quite a few things, including putting the matte and vignette around the pics. Plus, it's free! :) - Holly
