One Little Tea Pot

Ready for some tea!

Kate had a little tea party this afternoon!  She has loved her tea set from my mom for months now but, today, she has really been obsessed. 

I have heard her little tea pot song "One little tea pot ready for some tea.  Two little cups, one for you and me..." about a million times. 

Kate was utterly unimpressed when I disturbed her tea party for pictures.

After she got over the fact that the camera was in her face yet again, she resumed playing!  Sadie even got in on the tea party action!

And then she decided to look at the camera for momma!!


I've been taking some time to learn this bad boy:



All I have to say is wow, any type of Photoshop is HARD.  I did a 30 day trial of Lightroom and was so overwhelmed that I didn't use it at all.  I feel like Elements is much easier for someone like me to use.  I've been reading on-line tutorials, talking with Maxine a ton, and watching YouTube videos.  I still have SO much to learn.  But, I can tell an improvement!

Here is a comparison SOOC (straight out of camera - no edits) and after some edits.  I shoot in RAW which gives me better editing capabilities - I just need to learn how to edit better!
I can't wait to see how my editing improves as I spent more time in Elements.  I'm thinking I'll have some time to play around when we visit Alex's parents soon - I know my MIL will want to spend time with Kate so it will be a win win!!

I just found a "secret" song on the teapot. Actually, Lily did! If you have it on the second setting from the bottom and press the music button twice in a row, a new song plays. It only took me a year to figure that out. ;)

I totally just tried this out! Now if I can just teach Kate to push the button twice!
