I love Christmas...

I would decorate for Christmas even if no one else would ever see the inside of my house. I saw this tree across the lot and knew it had to be mine. It is huge- fell over once(lights on, no decorations) and is now anchored to the wall. I enjoy simply sitting and looking at my tree... I am such a dork!

This Year's Christmas Card

Christmas Card 2007
inside: Feliz Navi-Dog.

Christmas Card 2008
inside: We fish ewe a hairy Chris Moose.

I had a difficult time deciding what to do for this year's Christmas card! Everyone loved last year's card, so the pressure was on!

More portraits







It's Magic

I was fortunate enough to be able to do publicity shots for a magician... we had a great time and enjoyed seeing his props and costumes. I will post his website information later.

Busy, busy, busy...







I have been very busy shooting portraits these days. Not complaining, just stating a pleasant fact. These are a few of my favorites shots from a shoot of sisters.

Addicted to Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives

Smokey Valley Truck Stop

Hillbilly Hotdogs



Main "Dining Room" is a bus... awesome.

I was super excited to find out there were two "Dives" on our way home from Robert and Kim's- made Ben stop at both!!!

The first was the Smoky Valley Truck Stop in Olive Hill, KY- homemade coconut cream pie made fresh 2-3 times per day. Delicious!

The second stop was at Hillbilly Hotdogs in Lesage, WV- hotdogs on redneck acid. It was worth a stop for the ambiance... and the chili sauce. Check it out... http://www.hillbillyhotdogs.com/

Newport on the Levee Aquarium continued










Newport on the Levee Aquarium







Ben and Robert took a day off hunting and we drove to Newport, KY and went to the aquarium. Robbie loved feeding the lorikeets... until one bit him. He also enjoyed petting the sharks. We had a great time!

Trip to Kentucky


Ben and I went to Kentucky to visit the Gifts... and for Ben to hunt.

Adelle's 7th Birthday Extravaganza!!!! Day #2












Sunday, November 9 we went to the zoo...

Franklin Institute Continued


This is my favorite shot...

Adelle's 7th Birthday Extravaganza!!!!












A couple of years ago, Ben and I started taking my niece, Adelle, away for a weekend for her birthday. This year we went to Philly. She had a blast and enjoyed missing a couple of days of school in the process.


Saturday, November 8th- We met my cousin Emily and went to the Franklin Institute.

It has been a long month!!!


I have been incrediblly busy this month... hence the failure to post! I guess I should post photos instead of writing about it...


Saturday October 25- Halloween Party in Paoli


November 2- We saw Terry Fator in Williamsport. He was awesome! I don't understand how it is possible to impersonate someone's voice, do it while singing, and then do it without moving your lips... crazy.

FINALLY...

Yay! I finally have computer access again! My number keys stopped working last week (might have something to do with the 20 oz of water that I spilled on my desk) and I was without the Internet- a fate worse than death! I just installed my new laptop keyboard... bonus is that I have a control key for the first time in over a year... and I am ready to roll. I will begin posting photos as soon as I catch up on a weeks worth of PhotoShop/ email/ bill paying/ website upgrades/ etc.... Yikes!
