Hustle and Bustle

Wow, my apologies to all that used to frequent this blog.  I love to blog but it has just not been on the priority list.  I have been caught up in all things Christmas, just like you I'm sure. You know, trimming the house, shopping, parties, banquets, etc. I was thinking of making a fresh start, so things may change come January. I am still on the fence. Anyway....I feel like playing catch up so here it goes...


This was our annual Christmas Banquet at church. Eli and cute little Natalie right before their performance.


Eli, in case you were wondering is on the other side of the beautiful blonde.


Next up was the Jr. Choir and Kennedy is the one in the black and white! She was excited!



Then yesterday it was snowing for the first time this winter. I could not believe all the snowflakes that really looked like snowflakes! And for some strange reason my niece wanted me to take some pics of her and her new beau, Chris. Not sure if they are doing their own Christmas cards or what. Here are few samples...


                                                        That's snow not dandruff : )


It was FREEZING!!! So, I "double dog dared" Rach to see if her tongue stuck to the pole...it didn't!









Like I said this is what we woke up to this morning!


And after 30 minutes of getting dressed, we spent about 4 minutes total outside. 


Just long enough to do this : )

I hope everyone out there is having a wonderful winter!

Poor parents when it snows, ohh the clean up. Love the header picture, I don't think everyone was happy to take it though. Merry Christmas.

You took some wonderful photos, your Kennedy is SO beautiful. Your header is gorgeous, all look so pleased except for the darling little frowny fellow. He reminds me of a little fellow at our church pageant rehearsal. He was not happy to be sat up on the stage and told to sing. He sat there with his head down and his hands over his ears! They are so cute at that age.
Your niece is gorgeous also, I LOVE her dress. Those photos ARE professional, what a great backdrop for them.
Hugs, Cindy

A very blessed lady! said...

BTW my niece actually made that dress she is wearing!!! I will pass along your wonderful comments about it thanks so much!

I've said it before and I'll say it again. You should be a portrait photographer. You do such an excellent job. I have a former student who graduated from college with a degree in something or other and then turned her love into a photography business. She has become in such demand that she has to turn people away.

I said all that to say that your pictures remind me very much of the pictures on her blog.

Of course, it helps that you have some wonderful subjects to photograph, too!

I love your son's face in the picture in your header. Sooooo cute!

I have been a neglectful blogger lately and plan to try to start up better after the new year too.
