favorite things

A couple of days ago I was desperate for something to give Miss Naughty to do.

draw smiley faces on Chichi's stomach, arms and face
teach introductory class on booty shaking (still thinks this is hilarious, still waiting for the phase to be over, or not)
stress out the neighbor's dog by barking back for 30 minutes
eat bowls of sugar

It seems like when left to her own devices, my daughter is far too creative for the good of the human race.

So I grabbed the point and shoot and told her to take pictures of all her favorite things. Lots and lots of pictures, for hours if she wanted.

Um. Wow.

In no particular order, a few of Queen NaNa's favorite things:

Squeal inducing happiness.

Young impressionable girls love Barbie. Just look at Chichi's expression. "I'm enamoured."

A cookie with a strong will to live.

Or not!

I love pictures from their perspective!! The last pic is my favorite, so funny - if I could figure out a way to do that instead of "thumbs up", I totally would. :)

I love everything about Miss N, but dang, those toes take the cake.

Yep, it's always fun to see things from their perspective! And they DO get some great shots! Now, have you let her take any video yet? With her commentary? That should be fun!

Ha! Love it! Nolan's favorite thing to do is use the camera. Fussy boy at the grocery store...whip out the point and shoot, and your good for the rest of the excursion! You should see the pics he got though, food galore, and I look TERRIBLE (can't believe I actually went out in public like that!) and then he also captured the clerk and bag boy, I'm sure they thought wierdness of my paparazzi child! But he was lovin it! And I didn't have to listen to WHINING!!!

I am to scared to let my oldest take the camera yet, but in due time, it will happen if it keeps her quiet. hehe : )
