Being a mother of 4 children, and having planned my fair share of celebrations, I feel it's safe for me to say that they really do grow up so fast. It seems like only yesterday, thinking on it now, and I remember a time - although, it seems so very long ago - when I was much more organized!
4 baptisms, 10 graduations, 14 Halloweens, Christmases, Easters and any other celebration that required me to bathe and dress them, you know, nice...um...and don't forget...the chronological blowing out of the candles on 38 birthday cakes...THAT'S WHAT!
When I think of all the film we MUST have developed over the years...PHEW!...I think it's about time someone else take their pictures, yes?
Pretty much the whole reason I jumped on reviewing Kodak's new Single Use Camera - okay, so it was more like a leaning deep into my mailbox and smiling broadly - still. The idea of not having to futz around with batteries, flashes and simply having to place a few cameras around a table...well, it makes me wish I had somewhere to go. A birthday party, wedding, or something.
Did I mention that we're...uh...broke and that Christmas is just around the corner?
No matter - the kids are smart and my husband Garth (not his real name) and I...ugh...well, we're rooting for scholarships - I was, however, pleased to able to capture my children preparing for our This Full House Ghosting Adventures and share of few of the product features with you:
- Available exclusively for purchase through the KODAK Store (click here) beginning in October, 2007.
- Sold in 10-pack increments at a price of $79.50.
- Includes Kodak's 800-speed film providing unbeatable clarity and sharpness resulting in high quality points.
- Bright, sophisticated new looks and an easy-to-use design.
- Fun, reliable alternative when an expensive camera isn't available.
Since, my digital/video camera is not, you know, working and both batteries are appropriately dead for Halloween!
Here's Thing One, insisting that (at 13) she's too old for trick-or-treating and trying to convince me that her interest in the art of Chinese Tatooing is only temporary. Notice the clarity in colors and how truly purple their room really is.
No, that's NOT really Thing Two's hair - although, she really DOES want to dye it...GULP...black - she's going out as a Goth Bride, tomorrow. I know. But, the kid is 11, an honors student and what can I do...besides, you know, ask that you pray for me?
Mini-Me is 6 and...well, as multi-faceted as our den is...apparently...and are your eyeballs burning, yet?
Good - then, you can see just how bright, bold and beautiful this shot is and perhaps consider turning a blind eye to whatever in the world is going on with my 8 year-old son!
No matter - you can request your photos on a cd and can
burn edit your photos however you like - the kids and I had fun filling up the entire roll with such silliness and are the envy of parents, everywhere.
No, not really. But, with Kodak's Recycling Program, I was happy to hear that we can at least all go a little green:
Kodak recycles - at least 80% of this camera by weight will be reused or recycled when your photofinisher returns it to Kodak.
Oh, and pink...too:
You can visit the rest of our pictures, here and perhaps consider KODAK for your future celebration and/or holiday needs!
