Messing around...






















I'm no pro with a camera by any means, but I find that I'm understanding more about the camera and especially flash and lighting so I'm trying different things. This almost looks like a fish-eye pic but in reality....

It's just an ornament on our tree. I caught Reese peering at herself in one of these ornaments the other day and just knew as soon as I even acted like I was going to get my camera...she would bolt and be on to something else. Turns out I was able to snap a few pics of Reese while she was still being inquisitive...


Nice face huh?

Uncrop the photo and it looks like this.

I wish I could have caught her laughing at herself....she was having a blast looking at her little reflection.

While I was busy playing with the camera...Kim was busy in the kitchen making something that is just too good for words. We're not cupcake people....mkay? We're not all into this cupcake frenzy that the world is into right now but I ran across this recipe on another blog and I begged Kim to try to make them. OH MY GOD - these are so good. This is Devil's Food cake that has been jazzed up a little bit, stuffed with mousse, topped with home made icing, topped with crushed Reese's.......Honey hush. The pics make them look good. But eating them was just too much. This is my new favorite. Bar none. You'll have to ask Kimmy to make some more because these were amazing and chase them with ice cold milk......Oh dear.
























Mmmmmmmmmm Good.
