Cookie Memories

Last night we attempted to make cookies!  We were able to get two different kinds of cookies made.   It was a little crowded but fun!  I will finish up on the other cookies today.  We started late last night and ran out of time!

Baby Photography

These are a few shots from my shoot on Sunday. This is my first attempt at photographing babies. I am pleased over all but there is definitely room for improvement. For one thing babies move a lot! I took almost 400 shots and I have 180 good photos to work with. This is the beauty of digital cameras! 

This is 3 week old Eli.  He was very cooperative!  Sweet baby!

Monday Monday

Some people hate Mondays because it is the end of the weekend and the start of the work week.  I say Mondays are a fresh start!  I suppose if you really hate your job then you would really hate Mondays.  Maybe it is time to find a new job.  My weekend consisted of going to the beach for the day on Saturday.  I am thankful that I got to do that and my husband drove.  It was great to spend so much time with my husband and sons.  I also got to see my father, brother and his family and my uncle and his family.  I am thankful for the weekend but I am also thankful for my fresh start this Monday.

January 2014 New Beginnings

As I sit back and reflect on 2013 it is now time to think about what 2014 has in store for us!  2013 was a good year!  I finished two semester of school with just one class I need to take to finish my Digital Design Certificate.  I really enjoyed school and met some really cool people.  My instructor/advisor helped me get a job as an intern in a graphics department at a small business in the town I live in back in March.  It has been a great experience and I have learned a lot.  I am not sure how much longer I will be able to stay with this company but I have really enjoyed it!
 I also had several opportunities to use my photography skills this year!  Actual paying jobs!  I am hoping to grow the photography business.  Social media and word of mouth really do help!

Jack started high school and seems to be doing well!  He grew about 2 inches over the summer.  Not sure I like that!    Nick wasn't sure what he was doing.....I think he finally figured some stuff out though!  He is working now and is enrolled at the community college here in town.  It is great having him around!  He and Jack seem to be getting closer.  He has gotten Jack involved with track and field at school.  Heather got a dog (Yoda), a job promotion and moved into her 2nd apartment.  She seems to be doing well! 

Dennis has been working his butt off!  He really does not like his job but we need the benefits.   I feel like 2014 will be a great year!  We are all moving along and upwards!  If we could all look at the glass as half full instead of half empty we would have such better attitudes! 

Happy New Year!
