"Eyes"

When I saw that the newest theme from We Picture This was "Eyes", I immediately thought of <this> photo from our recent trip to China.  Then I realized that even though the photo was sentimentally significant (and pretty fun and interesting) it wasn't technically very high quality.  So I searched my archives and finally decided to just shoot some new pics instead.  

I enticed the girls into the backyard this afternoon in the hope of taking some pictures that really captured the essence of their personality via their eyes.  The goal was a photo with their eyes as the focal point.  I tried to crop these to achieve that effect but liked them better in their original form. 

So, these are straight out of the camera - no editing at all.  I know they won't win any Photo-Excellence awards but I was really happy with the results anyway.  

For their part, the girls got to pick one delectable piece of Halloween candy from their combined stash of Halloween goodies.  Honestly, they'll do just about anything for a piece of Halloween candy!

Here are my babies with their happy, sparkling eyes.  Maddy on the top in red and Gwenny below.

When I asked Maddy to let me see her big pretty eyes, here's the face I got.   I call her Moon Cake as a nickname and this is why.  She's so sweet that I just want to eat her up!

By the way, Gwen's sweet nickname is eclair.  I call her that because her middle name is Claire and when you say Gwenny Claire, it sounds like Gwen Eclair.
