Brody's new nickname, "little bean". He was a BIG fan of Costa Rica. It helps that he was already a big fan of a) being naked and b) anything water related, but I think the amazing black beans and rasta music were the clenchers.

Just a few, more from the whole trip coming soon.


*lindsey, these are for you. :)

Off the grid

Tomorrow morning we're Costa Rica bound so if you send me an email or leave a message we'll talk next week. :) That's if we don't get eaten by crocodiles or fall off the zip line, I'm just hoping Jared keeps all of his limbs intact. The temptation could be too much though.

This was my entertainment today as I packed. Yes, he is wearing what look to be homeless clothes since his bags are already packed. And yes, it does look like he was mauled by a dog since he had an unfortunate run-in with a sippy cup a few days ago. Falling onto it while running. But he is the cutest homeless sippy cup victim I've ever seen, that's for sure. :)

What we have been up to....


Holy shmoley, I can't believe it's been over a month of non-blogging. It's been toooooo long friends. It's been a month of busy-ness, mayhem, madness, and all kinds of fun. Here it is in a nutshell:
  • Holiday sessions and orders galore (busiest holiday season TO DATE)
  • Visiting Jared's family in San Diego for a week
  • Refinishing awesome furniture finds from Goodwill 
  • Making a quilt from scratch (with the help/patience of my awesome mom)
  • Making a quiet book from scratch (with the encouragement/peer pressure of my much-more-talented-when-it-comes-to-sewing mom)
  • Spending Christmas and New Year's with my family in Tyler
  • Brody catching a horrendous stomach bug in Tyler
  • All of us catching the horrendous stomach bug once back home
But probably the coolest thing we did during the past month was meeting the AMAZING Bobbi and Mike during our turn on the other side of the camera - our 2010 family pictures. Let me just say it gave me a whole new appreciation for my clients - the whole "What to wear!!????!!?" dilemma!? Sheesh, I broke out in a sweat just thinking about it. Add to that the anticipation/nervous excitement of meeting THE BOBBI AND MIKE and my eyeballs about exploded. So exciting, so much fun, so perfect. We are doing this every year.  

I'll post some faves when we get them all but for now there is a sneak peek up on their blog - click HERE


As for this month we are catching our breath, leaving Saturday for a week in Costa Rica, finishing a few pieces of furniture still waiting for last coats of paint, posting many, many, many favorites from recent sessions, and getting galleries up for the remaining friends/family sessions still waiting to be done (I love you for being so patient!). And planning a wedding for my sister, Paige, who just got engaged!! Woohoo!

So 2011 is going to be exciting - new nephew AND new brother-in-law. (Did I tell you Melissa's having a boy? I love that there's going to be a little gang of boy cousins.) This is going to be fun. As fun as a chocolate donut food fight. :)


PS - How crazy is it that Bobbi and Mike's session before ours was with Sarah Q and her adorable fam. Sarah is the one who took these and these when I told Jared I was pregnant!
