Nikon School and a Few Other Things

Well, since I forgot to set the clocks back last night before I went to bed (even though I told Barry before we went to bed "Hey, we don't want to forget to set the clocks back!"), I am up an entire hour earlier than I should be. 

On a Sunday morning.

When my entire family is still sleeping in nice, cozy beds.

Oh well...nothing to be done about it now.  To make myself feel better, I had apple crisp with ice cream for breakfast.  These are the things you can do when you're up before everyone else!!! Another thing you can do when you're up first is to sit down and update your blog, which you've been sorely neglecting.  This is just some advice for all of you out there, because I would NEVER neglect my blog!  hahahaha.....

This weekend, I am attending Nikon School over at Easton.  Yesterday was all about basic digital photography (aperture, shutter speed, exposure, white balance, RAW vs. JPEG, etc.).  Today we're covering color, light, and technology.  Should be interesting, and I'm hoping to come away with some new information that can help me make some better pictures!  Yesterday, Deetra and I went to the class and then thought we'd do a little shopping over at Easton...what a joke!  Easton was totally packed, and there were no parking spaces anywhere.  We kept getting stuck in the traffic that runs through the shopping district, and it ended up being almost an hour before we got out of there...crazy!!!  We decided to stop on the way home and grab dinner at Barley's Smokehouse, which was pretty good...but then we needed to get home because Deetra's son Will was having a conniption fit that she was gone.  He's such a little cutie!

Soccer is over for Noah, and although he enjoyed it, we are all enjoying one last place to run on Sundays.
 Kendall's piano lessons have been moved to Mondays, so we have one less place to run on Saturdays too...this is a very good thing!  Of course, the holidays are right around the corner, so our schedule is bound to get crazy real fact, next weekend just might be our last free weekend until after Christmas...isn't that crazy?!?

Let's see...what else?  Oh yes...Halloween!  We had a fun trick-or-treat night, as our friends, the Saltsmans, had their annual pre-trick-or-treat pizza party.  Of course, we all dressed up in theme again this year...
Star Wars has ruled this house for the past year, and we've known we were going with this theme since last Christmas.  The kids were really into it, especially Kendall, who kept her royal attitude all night, and Noah, who reveled in being the Prince of Darkness...
 Well folks, that's all I have time for today...gotta get to class!  Hope you  are enjoying your weekend, and I hope to see you all back here sometime this week!  :)

Oh my goodness... I love your Halloween costumes! Too cute! Sounds like you guys have been super busy.

Great costumes!

Hope class was a good experience. These darn things come with soooo many different settings and features that you really do need a class to use the camera to its fullest potential. And by 'you', I mean 'me' - lol.

Julie - Thanks! We HAVE been busy, but you know what? I think that's just the way it's gonna be around here for a while!!

Kate - Yes, it is too true. I learned quite a bit, now I just have to APPLY it!! HA!
