Holiday Magic

This year was good. We enjoyed ourselves. The family gathered at my SIL house. We ate, we talked, and we danced. Thats right. It was fun. I won't post the videos for the sake of my dear families dignity. (OK well I might later on, but not today... they were warned.)

Later that evening my sister and her little family came over. They live in a tiny little town and drove down to wait for the madness shopping, aka Black Friday to begin. I snapped this photo of Mr. Landon. He is growing so fast. I can't believe he is already 9 months old, crawling, standing and even walking with the guide toys.

Can you believe its time for Santa?. I can't. I mean wow, where did the year go. It almost seems like I was pregnant just yesterday and they are no way little Bry is going on 5 months old. Really!

Blake and I decided to forgo digging out all the decorations. I am so over the red and gold scheme, as we've had it for 7 years now. We off to store we go. With Blake's help, this year our tree is dressed in silver, white, silvery blue, brown with blue and white lights. Its so cute, and very suiting for a house of boys I must say. For that extra touch, I misted the branches with beautiful Santa snow. I love that stuff.

Love this new camera.!!!

Mr. Personality

Hello! Its a random one today.

My little guy is so alert and aware of whats going on. He has been since he was born. He is constantly looking around. So much so that he turns his head back and forth about every 10 seconds. He doesn't miss anything. Blake will tell you his brother is funny and happy and oh how he is right. We are extremely lucky, Bryson is happy 99.5% of the time. He only cries when he is hungry or poopie (hates this one). Bry is going to be Mr. Personality if he continues. He is only 3 months old here, but check out this little camera king.

I love having 2 funny, handsome, little boys to hug, cuddle, snuggle, kiss, and squeeze on.

My Spidey Pea

Halloween was alot of fun this year. We took Blake to the mall. He had a blast. He loved saying Trick or treat, and following the crowd around the circle. It went super fast. About an hour later, his bucket was half full. They were three more wings to go, but he had more than enough candy. (Yes I am one of those moms that doesn't allow their kiddos to pig out on candy, not even on Halloween)

Blake chose his own costume this year. I so wanted him to be one of the ninja turtles but he didn't agree. So Spiderman again, but he does make a handsome little spidey, and we already had that bucket from 08.

Bryson was a little pea in a pod this year. Which totally fits him. He is so much like Blake was at this age, its ridiculous. Looks like I got my cookie cutter kiddos like I hoped for.

I can't wait to scrap these holiday photos. I love them both.

Take Care and Be Safe.

Super excited new owner of.....


.......this baby. Canon 60D. Its taken me sooooo long to decide what to get. Nikon or Canon, canon or Nikon, then it was which model. The rebel or D7000. Ultimately, we bought this Canon bc of the 18 MP, wireless remote and pivotal screen. I've had a Canon Powershot A series for over 5 years. It's been dropped at least 50 times, and takes Blake's abused pretty well, plus it survived a year in the horrid sand of Iraq. I can't wait to get started. Now all I need is Canon 60D for Dummies.

October was a busy month. They were a couple of things we couldn't find the time to squeeze in like the Tanya Tucker concert or the local fair. We did find time to visited the Pumpkin Farm. I love those places. I love the colors of fall. Burnt oranges, gold, plums, reds, and greens... Beautiful!

Awake, Dressed and Ready!

Seeking Help

After a recent portrait session, which lasted over an hour and resulted in ok photos, I came to this conclusion. "Professional portraits" are so expensive, why spend that kind of money year after year. So I think its time I go ahead and buy a nice camera. I've thought about it for years, yet always chose to spend big money like on someone else. Now as I see Blake growing before my eyes, I'm desperate to hold on to that last bit of baby in him. Annnd of course get thousands of totally precious little toothless adorable photos of Bry. Now that leads me to problem one. I'm not sure which one is the best choice. Canon or Nikon. I've never owned a Nikon and know nothing about them. I've narrowed it down to these two. Any reviews, opinions or advice for me.

Nikon D7000

Canon Rebel T2i
