I have needed to have the girls pictures taken for a long time to hang on the wall. (The last time I had their pictures taken professionally was when Amanda was in the 6th grade and Sam in the 3rd Grade!) Unfortunately, to have them taken at a place where they actually turn out good is usually fairly expensive - not to mention you have to make an appointment and actually get organized. Everyday, as I'm doing my usual bus route, I cross over these railroad tracks and look at the beautiful trees and leaves. Since I love taking pictures, I decided that I could take pictures of the girls just as good as someone else. SO - this last Saturday I had the girls get ready, we grabbed the stool and went to take the pictures. I had some 8 x 10's printed out today and hung them on the wall tonight. I LOVE how they turned out!
