Resolutions and a New Year

Well, it's almost 2010, and this year I am really going to try to stick to some of my resolutions. What's important to me? Setting priorities, such as first God, then Family, then work etc..., giving up some habits and making news ones (excersizing, organizing, making more fun family time) really celebrating my Moms' life and trying to be more like the wonderful mother that she was.

Also I am doing the 365 photography thing, a picture a day so I can see at the years end that I have actually done something. And to shoot more purposefully. Will I actually do these things? Who knows....but ya gotta try.

Actually, I have made some progress, I filled my Frankin Planner today for 2010, my favorite job of the year. I feel like I am starting with a clean slate! My Wii Fit Plus came in the mail today, and I already made up a link for my 365 so hey, we will see! Besides, it's a Blue Moon.

I played around a little with some textures and a FREE new applicater from MCP Actions, love it, the site is located in my favorite sites to visit. By the way, isn't Jasmine gorgeous? This is from a photo shoot get-together with some of my photo buddies last Sunday.
Merry Christmas and God Bless You!

Christmas At our House

The last few weeks have been busy decorating the tree, shopping, Christmas parties and lOTS of family time. This year we brought out the old Christmas ornaments that we used when the girls were younger, mostly the ornaments they made in school and also ones that mark certain important events in our lives. It makes me SO happy to see these up again.
I'm using the blog-it boards from MCP Actions, they are kind of fun and a great way to tell a story.


A rare moment to snap a shot before she realized I was going to take a picture of her....Love you, Abby, and thank-you!

Re-connecting with dear friends

Through the miracle of the cell phone camera.
Myself with my two best friends from high school, one of which I haven't seen for about 34 years. How do we let the time go by like that? We met for lunch, visited one of our teachers, went to a pub and before you knew it, 9 hours had gone by.....It was SO good to see them again and reconnect, laugh, cry a little and remember all the good times.

And this would be the wonderful deep fried pickles...WONDERFUL. I never heard of these, but they are great! Maybe the wine helped.

CMU Homecoming Parade

First of all, let me say what a wonderful parade, the school spirit was everywhere. What a way to start a beautiful fall day!

Now, check out the green and yellow circles in the background of this Photograph. That's bokeh, thanks to my new lens!

And this is Jill with the Rage Hip-Hop Competition Dance group and pre-parade fun.

And now the parade....

Jill, there's more on facebook, and more parade photo's to follow.
