Enough is ENOUGH!

So I was experimenting with my camera the other day once I figured out a new little feature to play with and I literally took around 200 pictures of this cute kid. This one I caught towards the end of our photo session. I think she was a little tired of it, don't you?

Oh, and then I played around a bit in Photoshop experimenting with a linear dodge and burn. I think it looks pretty cool-- here's the before photo to compare:

Roman's Blessing

We blessed Roman last Sunday, January 11. What can I say, it was beautiful. It made me so grateful for the gospel and for a wonderful husband who is worthy to hold the Priesthood, worthy to perform such a beautiful ordinance.

On to the Next Distraction...

Yeah, that pretty much sums it up lately. I'm having such a hard time focusing on anything, which is why I've been out of the blogging world for so long. I can't even focus on this blog. Just wanted to let you know we're still alive and kicking here.

Cookie Day

So I've been wanting to make gingerbread men for a while. And then I got all crazy and actually made frosting and decorated them. I frosted a bunch in your classic gingerbread man fashion, you know the face, the buttons, the outline. Then I started getting creative. Gingerbread Charlie Brown. A frumpy gingerbread housewife in a muumuu. A gingerbread prison inmate and his gingerbread victim. A tux-wearing gingerbread man that looks more like a gingerbread doctor. A gingerbread man in various bandaging, casts and slings.
Gingerbread Cyclops. I got a little morbid... what does that say about me? That I find injured/dead gingerbread men amusing? Hmmm... not sure I want to find out.


My favorite beverage of late. Who am I kidding. This is my favorite beverage year-round.


I had leftover frosting. What was I supposed to do?
