For Christmas, Anna gave each of the kids a disposable camera to take pictures with. This was a great present, and the kids loved them. Of course, these “old fashioned” cameras do not allow you to see a preview of your pictures, so after watching the kids take their pictures, I was anxiously awaiting the results.

Side note, do you know how hard it is to find a place that actually develops film these days? We couldn’t find anywhere that could do it without sending the film out for a week.

Anyway, we got the pictures back and I have to say, they’re not as bad as I thought they would be!

Sure, Evie had a few head-choppers:


and extreme closeups:


but there were also a decent number of surprisingly good pictures:




And even a few more artistic shots, like:


Is it just me, or do these kind of look Instagramed? I guess we’ve come full circle.

Oliver’s were not as good as Evie’s perhaps, but still not too shabby. Maybe sometimes he gives equal frame space to me and the toilet:

but he’s got some good ones too:


It’s sort of interesting to see the world through Oliver’s eyes. For starters, his viewpoint is very, very low to the ground:


Also, it was interesting to see what he was interested in taking pictures of, such as this picture of the stove he insisted on taking: (the apparently filthy, filthy stove)


Of course, this was Ollie, so you know he had to take a picture of his taco:
