Pinch Proof

These two boys are going to be blessed with the luck of the Irish today!

 We've had a great morning.  Eli made sure Daddy didn't go out the door without his lucky green shirt on, then he picked out clothes for himself and Silas.  His favourite thing to wear these days are baby leg warmers on his arms. Luckily I had a pair of green ones for today.  After breakfast we broke open a bag of balloons, blew up all the green ones, and spent half an hour trying to keep them from touching the floor.  Then, with Eli holding the camera, we went on a Green Scavenger Hunt.  His job was to take pictures of everything he could find that was green.  He had so much fun, and by the end of it I think actually knew what green was! Here are his shots.  I just love the perspective of a two-year-old!  I can't get enough of the shots with his cute toes sticking out at the bottom. Notice the sweet purple flowers in the grass in the last shot.  He took all the pictures himself, with no help from me.


  1. oh i love green!! im very jelous of green grass. we still have snow on our lawns. who knew you had so many green things in your house. this would actually be fun to do on random days with different colors!!

  2. I tried to get my kids to do that today but they weren't interested!

  3. What a creative idea! I love the pictures. The boys are just so cute! I bet Eli loved finding all that green. :)

  4. i love the toes. eli's style is totally the new "cool" way to be a photographer. ie. chopping off heads, feet and toe shots. he's a natural!
