You Capture: Sunrise/Sunset

There hasn't been much sun in my area of the world lately. I'm going to be honest, there might be sun in the morning, but the two sweet hours from 5 to 7 are about the only times I get to sleep because Shane takes Tommy, and then, I spend time snuggling with the boys. And as much as I love You Capture, I also love sleep. And snuggling.

So instead, I captured those first snuggly moments when we wake up, after the sun rises...

And the blissful, quiet moments after it sets...

And all the moments in between, when my days are always bright, no matter how cloudy it may be.

I'm with you--no sunrises for me!

It's hard to be blue with sunshine like that in your house! What sweet moments captured!

Too cute!

JoRo said...

Wow - look at all that rosy-cheeked goodness!! Aww. And agreed - snuggling should be at least a top 5 priority. :)

Those boys are quite adorable (not that you don't know that!) I don't do sunrises either. And I love the one of Tommy on the stairs. Such a great story to embarrass him with in the future.

Soooooooooooo cute!!! I don't do sunrise, either. Ever. My morning might be a little brighter with those two to wake up to, though.

Krista said...

I have a hard time believing that many people are getting very good shots of this capture challenge! A challenge indeed! This is a great alternative to sunrise/sunsets! Sweet photos.

Out of curiosity from your last picture's caption, I went back and read your birth story...and oh my goodness that has to be the most amazing story of labor and delivery I have ever heard! Congratulations :)
