I Hope This Isn't Overkill

I got sick again today. Sigh. I was doing so well this past week. So, here are more pictures from yesterday since I'm too tired to think of anything else to write about (plus, there's a picture of Deacon I just had to share).

Here's a picture of the snow falling Sunday night. I need to figure out how to take better night shots. Maybe it's just my camera. Anyhoo, in the picture you can see the two boys who live two doors down from us. They were having a great time sledding down the street and playing in the snow...at 10:15 at night.
Since we don't have snowsuits for the boys yet, and I didn't want their little legs to freeze while we played in the snow, Josh came up with this great idea...

That's right, I put the boys in Josh's work socks (they're relatively new pairs so they don't smell that bad yet). Zeke freaked out and cried the entire time I put his on, put his pants on him, changed Deacon's diaper, put Deacon's socks and pants on him, and got Deacon down the stairs and into his boots and myself into my boots. As you can tell from yesterday's pictures, his distress was soon forgotten.

After our fun in the snow, I figured, what better way to end our first foray into the snow than with some hot chocolate (or lukewarm hot chocolate, for the boys anyway).

Deacon, as you can see, loved it. Zeke, despite his claims of "I love hot. I love hot chocolate." does not actually love hot chocolate. In fact, after two sips I think he decided that he doesn't even like hot chocolate. Oh well, more for me and Dee Dee next time!

Aaaggh! That picture of DeeDee in Josh's socks just killed me with cute! I think it's fair to say that I have the most adorable nephews on the planet. I miss all of you so much.

I hope you feel better today. No more sickies, you hear?

To the question you propose about night shooting. Yes it does depend on the camera but one of the difficulties with taking pictures of snowfall at night is usually the reflection of the flash of the camera coming off of the snowflakes. Since we have no control over where the snow will fall, flakes may protrude there way in front of the lens and create a blurry blob in the picture. If possible, if the camera you have has a night setting try shooting with that. Or possibly try using no flash but lighting whatever it is you want to take a picture of and snap a few pictures. How you would light a panoramic shot probably requires more effort than what you probably want to do.

As far as the sick thing goes, to quote Ferris Buelers Day Off, "Wrap a hot towel around your head, and make yourself some chicken soup." Or just watch Ferris Bueler's Day Off, laughter is good medicine.
