A Piece of Chalk and A Smile

Lucky, Charm and I had a fun photo shoot the other day.  I wanted to do this all summer, and I planned to find a nice piece of black top to use as a background (our driveway is grey'll see:)).  I took the pictures from the top of an 8 foot ladder, and lugging an 8 foot ladder to the perfect black top surface ended up not being a realistic venture for me.  So one day, while Bill worked on a project in the garage, I did a little drawing and then turned into a crazed photographer on the top of a ladder in our driveway, while my cooperative kiddos served as models:).  Our neighbors probably think I'm totally crazy, which is fine because look at these pictures:

I just love them!  I have some major cropping and editing to do with many of them, but I'm pretty sure we'll be having about one million copies of them printed and plastered throughout our house!!:)  I don't think any of us will forget this special photo shoot.  It's amazing to think about how a simple piece of chalk and a couple big smiles can turn an ordinary day into an extraordinary one:).


  1. What a great idea. Nice pics Beth!

  2. So cute, they are going to make wonderful additions to your home.

  3. So fun! Lucky and Charm will grow up with that "anything's possible!" feeling since it's clear they have such great support of that at home.
