Me Monday

Rats….hate it when that happens.

I fell on Saturday breaking my right arm in two places.
I will be finishing up my 365 and beyond with my cell phone or my point and shoot. 
The new lens I got from Santa is just going to have to wait.

Frosty the Snowman

Our first snowman of the year. 
I picked up this little snowman in a box last week, everything you need
to make a snowman just add snow.  When we started adding everything on "my girl' 
asks me "whats this' I say "its a corn cob pipe."well she had no clue what a pipe was.
How do you explain to a 3 year old about putting tobacco in a pipe lighting it up and inhaling it?

Pictures with Santa

I borrowed a Santa Suit we had at the office and grabbed these shots of my Girl.

She thought it was pretty funny that her Daddy was wearing a 
"Santa Costume"

Little does she know her Daddy IS the Real Santa!

Christmas Time in the City

We went downtown Chicago for an overnight on Saturday.
We were blessed with a fresh snowfall and mild temperatures.

Office Party

I put together a "Mini Photo Booth" for the company party. 
I wasn't sure how it would go over but…..everybody seemed to love it!
You should give it a try.

Set up a tripod,  

add a few props

Remote trigger, Instant party.

I'm not quiet sure what Mrs Claus was doing here, but Santa
sure seems to have a twinkle in his eye.

My boy His Girl

Our Granddaughter had her first Christmas Pageant EVER.

It was only about 20 mins long.
But she certainly nailed it.

The Ballet

I took her to see Max and Ruby the Nutcracker.
It was a cute little spin off of the Nutcracker. I do believe her favorite
parts were when the "Real Ballerinas" were on stage.

oh Christmas Tree

There was supposed to be a little girl standing on the step stool 
decorating the tree. Sorry to say she wasn't cooperating today.
Ugh, the best laid plans.

Me Monday

I spent the whole weekend decking the halls. 
I can now sit back and enjoy the season.
I'm excited we have lots of fun things planned. 
Starting with a girls trip to see the Nutcracker on Friday!

Cold.. but the sun was shining so nice.

Me Monday

For the sake of argument we will pretend that is 
a silhouette of me in the back ground waving hi.

First Snow

Be careful what you ask for. 
I had this little setup for 
some Christmas photos on Saturday. 
When it was 60 degrees and sunny.

Saturday, November 9, 2013


After many promises and much convincing 
she let me snap a few pictures.  It's not quiet what  I 
had envisioned but I'll take it. And yes that is her favorite dress.
Its been her "getting married dress" her "Angel dress"
and now her "Frosty dress"

Signs, Signs, Everywhere Signs

Blocking out the scenery. Breaking my mind.
Do this! Don't do that! Can't you read the signs?

The past few days we have been getting the most FABULOUS colors.
I just hope they last a while longer before the wind and rain come 
and blow them all away.
