Christmas vacay part II-twinkly things and sliding.

Joyeux Noel part DEUX!

Are you guys sick of hearing about Christmas yet? I know, it was so last year! But, I cannot start a new year without getting this off my chest. Or my hard drive, or whatever you know what I mean.

I wanted to share a few of my favourite pics of the season taken with my new 50mm 1.4 Nikkor lens which I think every photog should enjoy. See...

Prits, no?

Here's my mother. I'm sorry mom I had to put this on because it real and it's you and it's how you act around your Grankids. If you don't like it stop acting like a crazy person all the time.

See, you can take a nice picture too.

Oh, Benny, just act normal for the camera.

Look at Liv in her pretty Christmas dress! Soo adorable. This is a day or two before she came down with a horrendous case of bronchitis and we had to take her to the ER. My poor baby. Thankfully she'a all better now.

My sexy man. Hands off ladies.
No seriously.

And another crazy one in my family. My baby sister Becky. Only she's not really a baby anymore as you can see. This was pre-awesome haircut.
When I post the photoshoot photos you can see her new haircut in all it's black-tressed beauty.

The baby cuzs.
This is Jofish. That's not really his name but his sister called him that from day one instead of Joseph and it kinda stuck. Cute hey?

These next photos are right before the kids went nuts opening presents.

After a week in Lethbridge we headed up to the capital of Alberta and visited D's brother and his family for an awesome time. How fun that they have a hill in their backyard. THe only other person I know who anjoys this luxury is my friend Ange.
Check out this series of photos of Megan going down the hill. It's funny. Poor kid.
Getting ready.
Here we go!

The pre cry out.

It's okay Maggie.

Here goes daddy.
Killer slide man.
D's brother. Having a go at it.

My adorable nephew Keaton.

And that's it for part Deux!

Hopefully three is soon.

Happy Thursday to you and you and you!

Such gorgeous photos (again). You must LOVE the new lens. And there can never be enough Christmas!

Aidan is still getting over his Bronchitis, although we didnt go to the ER- just made it the medi clinic-

Happy New Year-

SEE?? Even you picked the pine cone cake to put up on your blog! WAY better than the daisies! They are all amazing, Chris. Guess what Travis bought today...... the 3D plane that Dustin got while he was here!!! This is turning out to be a very expensive little hobby our guys have. Has Dustin flown his yet?

Love that hot close up picture of Dustin! But don't worry, my hands are all the way over in Saskatchewan wrapped around my own hunk. ;)

Those first few are amazing too. You go girl!

Nice to see photos of a wintery Christmas and wonder what it would be like!

Angella said...

So THAT's why Megan was such a sledding pro today when you guys were here!

Beautiful pictures, especially the ones of the table setting, like something out of Real Simple magazine. Can't wait for part 3.

Oh and the change you made on your Emblem site helped a lot with the page loading times.
