Hot air balloon festival

Today we went to the Hot air balloon festival. It was such a beautiful day outside! It was also Drake and Kera's first experience with Kettle corn. They devoured it!

Miss A

I got to finally take some pictures of my new niece yesterday! She is so pretty. This was my first photo shoot other than photographing my own children. Thanks for having us over Mommy A, and thank you for looking after my two crazy children while I took some pictures :).

Pumpkin patch!

It is so crazy how much a child grows in one year....(remember you can click pics to make them larger).

Daddy is home...

Daddy is home, which means Kera clings to him. She loves her daddy!! Drake, Kera, and Daddy are watching the movie Cars while I do laundry and watch America's Next Top Model.

busy weekend

Woah, we had a busy weekend. Well actually the last two weekends have been extremely busy. I think we will be busy for the rest of October.

Here are a couple of pictures that my husband took today with his camera. We went to visit Grandpa Ken, Dede, Aunt Debbie, Uncle Marv, Uncle Deran, and Paw today. Kera was extremely cranky, she didn't get a nap yesterday or today. Well cat naps like literally 10-15 minutes. However, that is nothing when they are used to 3 hour naps a day.

Finger paint for Daddy

My friend Brittney got the children some paint for their first birthday. I got brave and decided to make a present for daddy, which also happened to be Drake and Kera's first art project (besides coloring). It was fun, not so fun after it was over and mean ole' mommy took the paints away. Kera cried and cried and cried... or more like screamed.

Here is the finished product... his b-day present...

About Me

My name is Melissa Schilling. I am married to my wonderful husband Dane who I have been with for 10 years. We have toddler twin babies Drake and Kera. I started this blog in hopes to one day be a photographer. As for right now my husband and I are using photography as a hobby we can do together. We are starting the 365 day project August 1, 2009. I can't wait to start to learn more and more about my camera. I look forward to any feedback. I will be mostly focusing on people subjects, because that is what I am interested in. However there may be a few other types of photography in the mix.

Thanks for looking at my photo blog, please follow me if you are interested in seeing all of my work, and where this takes me in the future.
