You Capture.Morning

This week's You Capture Challenge was "Morning", and at my house we're up pretty early usually. My hubbs leaves around 6ish, and it's go-go-go from that moment on. I sometimes get about a half an hour before the kids wake up so I try to get as many things done as I can! Make the bed, get ready, throw a load of laundry in, emails and editing and if I'm really lucky an occasional workout and shower. (if they sleep a little longer) Phew!! Then, Eli is usually the first to wake up, and he ALWAYS wants cereal. I try to tempt him with waffles, eggs and bacon, pancakes, anything I can think of but he is super low maintenance--it's cereal every time. Makes my job easy! :) He's so funny, he'll tell me all sorts of stories in the morning and will want to play cars. Mya will then wake up, with her happy, sunny smile.....she will want to play and cuddle and grins from ear to ear to see all of us. And that's the start to our morning, followed by cleaning, errands, the park, etc. etc. It's busy but always fun!
Be sure to check out the other entries at I should be folding laundry, it's so fun to see everyone's different point of view.

Here's the kids' rooms, these guys are the beautiful start to my day and the reason I LOVE my mornings!

Oh please... like I have the capability to see such pretty things during my morning. LOL!!! I spent my morning with my eyes open 1/4 of the way.. the rest crusted shut... with 2 screaming children after a night of MAYBE 3 hours of sleep. BLAH.

That being said, these pics were a breath of fresh air and I LIVE for the day when I can wake up, grab my camera and capture such moments in the early morning light.

WOw... amazing work.

Beautiful capture of early morning, I love the hazy light which you manage to make look just right and not out of focus and wrong which is how it would look if I attempted a shot like that :-)
