It's hard to believe TG is already graduating - time passes so fast! These are just for her - so she can see them sooner. You just can't imagine how we took these pics...I can assure you that she will not forget getting them made anytime soon! She's so pretty and is so easy to take pictures of because she normally knows exactly what she wants! Makes it so much easier on me! I just have to snap and she does the rest! These are my favorites TG! You can double click on them and enlarge them if you need to.

I also have new pics of my twin brothers and their wives...was a busy Sunday!

My poor's almost an everyday occurrence that they hear, "come here, i need to try this lighting out" or "hey, i need to take a couple of pics of you on this new setting" - they are such great sports about it. They normally don't even bother to fuss. They just step in front of the camera. Some pics are better than others - like the ones I'm posting of KJ now. It was just one of those days when hers were great. I love the drama in these pics. I'm going to slow WK down for a few soon, probably with his Santa hat on. I'll have to give details of the hat when i post his pics....

I DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!!

I figured it out! After many many hours of research and emails to SB I finally got my pics off of my card. I had to download two different plugins which was not an easy task since I only have dial-up internet on my desktop that I play with pictures on. Going from DSL at work to dial-up is like culture shock. I can't believe that's all I have as much as I am on a computer but the DSL in our area is just ridiculously high. Oh well...I'll manage for now. I sure do wish Santa would bring me a new laptop with an aircard in it for Christmas though.... ANYHOO - the pics of my niece are just amazing to me. Shooting pics in RAW is just a dramatic difference...yes Shannon you can say you told me so. I'm so excited!! Now I just need to come up with a picture of my kids for my Christmas card....uploading the pics now....comment me and let me know what you think!! I can just see my new scrapbook pages now - finally the pics I've been trying to get!!!
I have new pictures...however, I got brave and shot them in a new format and they are now stuck on my camera and I can't get them off. I've been told that if I ever get them downloaded that I will just love them because the new format will show the colors much better. I was hanging out at my Mom's this weekend (due to a major water leak at my house :( ) Anyway, I set me a studio up in the garage and called my SIL and told her to send me my two year old in she comes with a HUGE bag full of clothes and hairbows and shoes. We had sooooo much fun. My niece is the most hilarious little child you could ever meet. We took pictures FOREVER!! I'll post them as soon as I manage to get them off the camera....which better be soon because WK has a basketball game Saturday and I have to clear that card!! I may have to end up visiting Shannon the photographer for some help!!!!!! It's just killing me because I can't play with them yet!

Wow, it's Wednesday and I'm just now getting a chance to post to my blog. Friday night was the school's Fall Festival. I'm the Ways and Means Chairperson (should have used that NO! sign :) ) So have been VERY tied up with that, it was a major success - we made LOTS of money! Saturday morning I slept in since I didn't get home until 2 a.m. and then went shopping with some family...bad mistake!!! The Christmas spirit has hit!! Did lots of Christmas shopping - not buying gifts like I should have but decorations!!! Sunday morning me and the kids started decorating....our tree is up and a lot of the other stuff, but oh my goodness...we can't walk in our house for all the boxes and totes!! (I have pics of my tree but haven't had time to upload them, I'll get them up soon!) Sunday afternoon my SIL called wanting to go make pics of the kids - so we went to the Nature Trail, the colors were beautiful!! The kids were acting like monkeys the whole time but we have great pics - I'll add some. Monday night WK had basketball practice, KJ had softball conditioning, Tuesday night I had a PTO meeting at the elementary school and Softball Booster Club (secretary of that one....where was my sign??:) ) meeting at the high school, WK had Christmas program practice at church....TIS THE SEASON!!!! Tonight....I have no plans outside the house, therefore, I will be trying to make a dent in my house and do some much needed laundry!!! Oh, and if you have allergy/sinus problems...DO NOT go the Nature Trail this time of the year!!! I have been sick since Sunday!!!
