Born March 13, 2012
8 pounds, 2 ounces
21 inches long and breach
(he'll pay for that eventually)
Mindy and new son are both fine and will be out of hospital by Friday. Can't wait until I meet the newest cousin. Kriket, you called it being a boy. Mindy and Doug never opened the envelope so the sex of the baby was a surprise.
Few pics from the weekend.
Old point and shoot
Madison, My cousin Jeff and Heather's little girl looking sweet
Does not like me much
Did not want a picture taken
Piper and Maeve
My cousin Kriket and Ian's two youngest
Sugar and Spice
with a generous splash of Snips and Snails thrown in
Don't let those adorable faces fool you.
A repeat of Mindy and Doug,
the proud new parents
My grandmother again,
surrounded by her children
My grandfather was under the weather so is absent
Now for the new DSLR.
First actual picture,
As opposed to all the auto focusing I did
My aunt Karen,
Thanks for the camera rescue
My cousin Janet,
She hasn't changed much since highschool
Her maiden name is Darling, so she has always been, Janet, big pause, Darling to me LOL
My aunt Aileen, Leenie, the new grandma off to the side
My cousin Adam and Laurie's two, Katie and Curtis
Meah, my cousin Chrystal and Jimmy
Didn't realize I had the whole family there
Kendall and Holly,
Kriket's oldest and Jenny's middle daughter
My cousin Rodney's wife, Samantha and their youngest Ryler
Kade and Theron, their other sons were having none of me taking pictures
Theron was only to happy to show me he had lost a tooth though
As you can see I missed most of the family, between thinking the new camera wasn't working and running out of battery power for the old one, arghhhhhh. Amazing the difference between the two though and I have the new one all on auto settings still.
Back to my parents farm for a few more shots.
Horses all shaggy in their winter coats
The new lambs
It's that time again
Gathering sap and making maple syrup
Everyone gets involved
that's my uncle Doug, Mindy's dad, the new grandpa in the red
Dad drills the holes,
After replacing the drill bit he broke
There may have been cursing
Then the crew follows with spigots, lids and buckets
Katy, aka the Beib, showing me some love
She's all kinds of funny
The Canadian geese are returning
And I finally got a half decent shot of the red headed woodpecker
It only took about 30 shots
I should have been manually focusing but got a great hi def picture of the leaves in the forefront.
I've been having lots of fun with my new toy and the new software to edit my photos. One more thing on the list to keep me perpetually behind with everything. Hope you're all having a great Wednesday.
