Christmas is Coming!

I attempted some Christmas pictures of Bug in her Christmas dress but she decided not to be too cooperative....


As previously posted I went through all the trouble of making Kaley an Abby Cadabby costume that she had no trouble hating. So without further hesitation I present to you my little devil (I thought the costume was pretty appropriate lol):

What Happened in November?

November can be such a beautiful month here in North Carolina! The season really begins to set in and while I had no sessions booked I still had my camera out a lot. The leaves we're brighter and deeper then last year and everywhere you looked you couldn't help but see God's artistic work!

My Mom came in for a weekend and I was able to have a Thanksgiving dinner with her. I haven't been able to share that particular holiday with her in a long time so it was loads of fun! (she's on the right)

We did a little traveling! The day after Thanksgiving when my wee hours of the morning shopping was finished we took off with the in-laws to Sparta, NC to pick out their Christmas tree. Bug had so much fun trying to help pick out the perfect tree for her present to go under ;)

K hitching a ride on "Bobo's" shoulders..yes that's really what she really calls him.

October 2008

I'm horrible at updating this thing. Let's once again play catch up shall we.

First, I went to a rally to support the McCain and Palin ticket at East Carolina University. Sarah Palin was the speaker. I had never been to anything like it before but I've also never been as interested in politics as I was this year. Luckily after tomorrow our new President will be decided and we'll just have to deal with whoever it is and what their plans are for our nation.

I'm Behind....What's New?

At the beginning of September I made my first trip to Washington D.C. for a wedding and of course some site seeing! I loved it! I wouldn't want to live there but I think I could spend a few months just taking it all in. Here are some pics from my trip and the wedding:

The first night we had dinner at a nice Greek Restaurant in Old Town Alexandria

Turning Kaley into Abby Cadabby

I know Halloween is over a month away but I'm super excited about it this year! Kaley is obsessed with Sesame Street, well mostly just Elmo, Abby and Ernie so she is going to be Abby this year! She's learning to say trick-or-treat but right now it comes out as "Peta Pete" but maybe everyone will understand ;)
Anyways I still I have a few things to get for her costume but so far I have the tutu that I made and the hair that I made. I did a trial run on both, nothing fancy but here's a sneak peek!

Now if she'll just like the tutu as much as she did the hair we'll be in "Peta Pete" business!

Holly B

My good friend Holly is also a willing model for me to photograph and it helps that she is also gorgeous! We went a little bit of everywhere to shoot her pics. There was no special reason why we were shooting. We're girls and we just wanted to be pretty and have fun!
