Quick update

I can't believe how quickly Christmas is approaching which means I'm completely behind and unorganized. I was frantically knitting gifts for family and now I'm at that point of, Oh well, I tried.

That goes for my annual photo calendar which is definitely put on the backburner and highly unlikely to be ready by Christmas. I think the number of calendar users in my family/friends have drastically reduced in size and I can only think of a few that actually use them.

So that sums it up, behind in knitting and photography although the knitting is done but I haven't taken any photos of them so, yeah.

I did manage to take some pictures of Josh because he is still a willing participant/model and I rented this monster pro lens that needs to be used (a lot). Luckily I have it until January so once school is out, I will torture the kids with photography. :)

Morning portraits

Field trip day

Up and out the door earlier than usual...J has a field trip and has to arrive 15 minutes earlier. I decided to try out a new lens that I'm renting.

Wow, this sucker is massive and heavy. So far I'm still getting used to this but it's fun to try.

Walking to school

J is wearing his class T-shirt with all the kids names filling in the 14. I can't believe that this is his last year of elementary school.

Growing up fast

Stopping for another pic by a lush green plant.

Sweet boy

Closer portrait. My baby is growing up.

revisiting childhood times ;)

And another one by the park. Its sad that he doesn't want to play here anymore....

Now, my next mission is get pics of my oldest baby not being sullen and teen-like. :)
