Frame A Day '12: Week 43--10/21-27

We hit Day 300 (and then some) this week!  As someone who is 3/4 of the way through her second Project 365 (366), it was really Day 666 that day, but who's counting?

October 22--A Party in the Pumpkin Patch--The kids and I went to a pumpkin festival. There were bounce houses and trampolines, face painting, pumpkin painting, free samples of snacks and a very scary haunted house. We had a great time.

As an aside, I am so amazed at how much I have learned this year with respect to post processing.  Look at the original photo:

Sure, I knew how to crop prior to this year, but the difference in my photos with respect to color and the rest is amazing.  I have a lot to learn, still, but just so glad I made post-processing my goal for this year.

Moving along...
October 21--Paging the Doctor--Imp pulled out the stethoscope this morning and decided it was time for a check up of our tickers.  It was interesting trying to comply with his wishes while trying to get breakfast ready, but we managed.

And just ignore the above photo with regard to the processing.  Sometimes, there is not much that can be done when you have a photo shot in a dark room.

This next one is pretty darn awful, but it's more for the memory:
 October 23--Head (Big) Banger--Big Bang Theory comes on every night at 7 and 7:30.  One night in the summer, Imp started nodding his head up and down in time with the music when the theme song started.  We all cracked up.  Since then, his moves have evolved into a full-fledged dance with culminates with his shouting 'Yay Big Bang!' at the end of the song.  He loves it, and we love him.

October 24--Halloween Haunted House--We went to the library tonight for a special Halloween story time, craft and treat of Teddy Grahams.  Although it was slated for 3-7 year olds, the librarian who has known Trust since she was a year old, was fine with letting her participate as well.  Here we see Earnest putting the finishing touches on his house.

 October 25--Telling Stories--Tonight was the annual pot luck dinner at Imp's school.  After dinner, Trust decided she wanted to share some stories with Imp and his friends.  Despite the distracted looks in this shot, she had a captive audience of both kids and even some parents.

 October 26--Superfriends--Tonight was the Halloween party at the kids' school.  Imp befriended a fellow Power Ranger on our way inside, and then bumped into his new friend when it was time to go to the Haunted Courtyard.  It's always nice to hang with your fellow superhero friends.

October 27--Sky Blue Soccer--Last day of fall soccer, and the "Sky Blue" team managed to pose for a group photo.  Trust and the other sister is in the photo since they were often helpers.  And, why yes, Sky Blue is the name they called themselves.  Why do you ask?
