you capture: in my kitchen

A couple important people were missing from my kitchen today.

It was the first day of school, and my sweet, sweet boys were gone. Collin in 3rd grade, and Drew in Kindergarten.

The only little one in my kitchen this morning was the Tiny Tornado. Sitting calmly at the head of the table, enjoying a snack.

She listened to not a single word I said all morning, until...

I said it was time to pick up big brother and bigger brother.

Never have I seen those little legs run so fast.
Running to the door, so excited to see her brothers.

I LOVE this picture of your little girl! Sitting there, she looks so tiny, yet it feels as if that's her rightful place --at the head of the table from where the princess could look down upon her "subjects." ;p

Love this photo!! The perspective just draws the eye right to your adorable little girl. And, I agree with Ashley - from what I can see, I love your house!! Reminds me of my mom's house.

awh, how sweet. I'm sure that's how my littlest Sun Kissed Boy will feel Monday when the bigger brothers head off to school. Cool photo.

Great angle. She looks like a little Queen sitting there. I am sure she missed the boys.

Another awesome shot. Love the perspective. It shows the emptiness of the kitchen table without her two brothers.
