Playing with camera settings...

These black and whites are some of my favorite pics with our new camera. We are trying to figure out how to use the camera and are dabbling with the black and white feature.....

Breakfast with Santa at the Y

The following pictures are from the Breakfast with Santa at our YMCA. The first one shows the before photo of the kids peering into the picture room looking very unsure of it all. The second one captures Justin holding the final photo with Santa and feeling rather relieved that it was over. And the third one is a group picture with a very tentative J and R (#3 and #4). All in all, the boys had a good time!

Winter has arrived

Here are a few cool pictures taken from our camera which we are still trying to experiment with.

My Mom's creations

For those of you who do not know my Mom, she is so creative. She always knows how to figure something out, with or without a pattern. It is just too bad that I did not inherent her creative gene! Here is a picture of her latest creation. These are Christmas ornament balls that she created. She definitely has talent for these types of things...

Helpers in the attic!

When it came time to do our Christmas decorating, the kids wanted to "help" get the decorations out of our garage attic. I was tentative, Dad was ok with it. Having anyone go up the attic ladder makes me nervous no matter who it is, let alone a 9, 7, 5 and 2 year old! Regardless, here is a picture of the kids "helping" David up in our attic!
