Just LOOK at those sweet angels & their beautiful parents...and grandma, too! How nice they were able to be with you for Easter, D.

To answer your question about my photos:

I use the Live Writer program to load all my photos onto a draft of the post that I start in blogger. I put in the title & my little siggie at the bottom always shows up unless I change it.

I then move the photos into the exact order that I want to follow the story line I have in mind.
Then I click on each photo & go into the "advanced" area to resize them. Some I make larger than others & often I will have to come back & shrink them down later. LOL Too big!

I then send the Live Writer draft to the blog & its there that I add my text. I had TONS of troubles doing text in Live Writer...spacing was off, paragraphs were goofy, etc. I just like Blogger better for the wording.

Once I've previewed it in Blogger & decide that I like it, then I publish it. I know, it seems like a lot of fuss & sometimes it is, but I love doing it. Its like painting to me without getting your fingers dirty. :D

The new Nikon D90 camera from DH certainly helps, too! It takes awesome photos just on automatic. I'm still learning all the buttons & whistles on it.

I hope this helped you. I drooled over photos at Susan's BNOTP & Bill's Affordable Accoutrements & ML's on Designs by Gollum as well as Yvonne's StoneGable's. I wish I could do 1/2 of what they can!


p.s. ♥♥♥ the grouchy banana!
