Trying my hand at grad pictures

If you have visited Bloom any time recently, then you will have noticed the utter lack of portraits or really any pictures of people on there.  Mostly, I think my "photography comfort zone" is in the landscape and random if you know what I mean ... but it just so happened that one early morning (really early) Caelen decided that she wanted to graduate . . . and then of course, she got it into her head that she might need some grad pictures . . . and then she thought,
"U...Hannah....Could you  . . .  "
Of course I loved the chance to go out and take some more pictures, but like I've said...people pictures are not my expertise :)
Thankfully, they turned out alright.  Tell me what you think, and PLEASE give me some pointers all of you 'perfect picture bloggers' out there....yes, I know you are out there somewhere because I sometimes look at the pictures on your blogs and break the tenth commandment (thou shalt not covet - Exodus 20:17)
My next post really should be on contentment...

{Isn't she gorgeousness?} 

In this one, she is holding our new mutt pup, Calcium Bicarbonate . . . yup, we actually named our dog the chemical name for least I think Calcium Bicarbonate is chalk...

A tad bit behind . . . know those days when you look at all of that stuff that you have gotten behind on and think; how in the world am I EVER going to get it done??? 
Unfortunately, that is where I am stuck at the moment . . . Chemistry, Geometry, History . . . it's all piled up over Spring Break and this (awesome) Easter weekend.  Somehow I've got to find a way to wrap everything up before the end of May...which doesn't give me a whole lot of time, but it was good to be reminded this morning in my devotions that:

"The Lord does not let the righteous go hungry..."
"Lazy hands make a man poor, but diligent hands bring wealth."
~Prov 10:3-4

Even when I'm feeling a bit ok, really behind in what I'm trying to get done, God always makes perfectly sure that all of my needs are supplied for. . . but just so I don't take that cue and run with it, he also adds in a caution not to sit back and relax...waiting around for him to bless me; he has called me to be diligent and hard working.
So... yep, I do have a whole bunch that I need to catch up on, and yes...I am still feeling kind of behind, but it is encouraging to know that it can be done as long as I go at it with "diligent hands" and he will supply me with the grace {and energy} to do it.  :)  

{Oh yes, I thought that I would show you my little Easter surprise that I got this past week}

{forgive the bad pictures, they are the only ones I could get . . . my camera ran out of batteries before I could take any better ones}

{I'll be sure to get more as soon as I'm recharged :) }
