Photo Booth Fun

My kids have found the fun and excitement of playing with Photo Booth on my Mac. Any time that I leave it unattended you can be sure that at least one of them will be playing with it.
For me it's a surprise to open it up and see all the new photos and videos that they've done, some are cute and others are just weird!
This is a really good one that Natalie took of her self.

And this is my oldest Caitlin, posing for the Mac camera! You can see that they always use one of the special effects that are available.

And here we have Super Baby! Or my youngest, and only son, Andrew. I was actually present for this 'photo shoot' and there were many pictures and videos taken that afternoon of Super Baby.

As I went through the pictures I realized that there wasn't one of my youngest daughter, Lauren. And then I figured it out.... she just takes long videos of herself riding a roller coaster or swimming in the ocean with the fish!

Woo Hoo!! No more blurry pictures!

So, if you're like me you take a ton of pictures of your kids and everything in between and often those pictures look great except for the fact that they're a bit blurry. It annoys me to no end that I have this great pic of my kids (getting along and smiling at the same time, which is a miracle) and it's blurry.
In comes this great new tool! Big thanks to Twitter... you can find almost anything there!
It's called Unshake and it takes your blurry picture and attempts to make them better! The best part is that I can use it on my Mac and Windows systems!
Here's the link if you're interested. http://www.petapixel.com/2010/05/17/unshake-your-blurry-photographs/

Need a new layout

I set up this blog rather quickly and choose one of the default backgrounds that they offer. It's okay... nothing special, but I think that I'd rather have one that spoke to me, popped out and said use me when I look at it.
So, now I start my search for something better. This may take some time.
Wish me luck! :)

It's Monday and the blogging begins!

I did it. Finally. I started my own blog.
Really the only thing that was holding me back was finding a witty name that would encompass everything that I wanted to be able to touch on in my ramblings, rants, and every day thoughts. There will be more to come later!
Wish me luck!
