Family photo!

Convincing my hubby to have his picture taken is kind of like convincing our dog that she doesn't need her chew toy! It ain't happening!!! But last night I was in luck! We were all dressed up, unfortunately to attend the wake of my hubby's best friends grandfather, but dressed up all the same. So I decided to grab the camera for a few quick snaps. Now, all of us are not in any one picture of course because I do not have a tripod, but at least you get the picture :)

The pictures aren't the best in the world, but at least we have some to keep now of most all of us together. Now I'm trying to figure out how to convince him to get a Christmas portrait :)

Our little friend has disappeared

I haven't seen the toad since posting his picture the other day. I have to wonder if the cat next door might have found him an irresitible treat. :(

The visitor in my yard

I find myself chuckling as I write this tonight. My dogs, 2 mini schnauzers, are totally terrified of our visitor! He has been waiting patiently nightly for about a week now on my front sidewalk. He sits there, doesn't say anything and doesn't move. He just watches us as we move around him. I sometimes wonder if he is waiting to be kissed so he can turn into a prince again LOL!

My daughters have enjoyed looking at him. Not exactly a handsome fella, but he looks like he is eating good.

I took the opportunity to take some pictures of my flowers out front also when I took the toads picture. It was night and I used my night flash. It also had just rained. I was impressed with how well these pictures turned out.
