My sister and nephew showed up and surprised us for Thanksgiving! We went to a buffet for lunch (lame, I know) and when the waiter took us to our table, my sis and nephew were already sitting there. I was so shocked and then so excited! I had been moping around all week because I thought she wasn't coming. We both had tears in our eyes. I can't even began to explain the bond we share. Anyways, we are going to have a great time while she is here. We have already done some shopping and we plan to go see the new Christmas movie with Reese Witherspoon. While we were out shopping yesterday, my sister just happened to have this awesome outfit on and I just happened to have my camera so when I saw this spot outside a toy store she agreed to be my model. There were a lot of people walking by and we had a few of them make comments and whistle (can you blame them?) All I can say is, OH SNAP!!!

I had a session on Saturday with this handsome boy! We had a lot of fun but man did he make me work! I also got some great ones of his mama and some of them together so I will post more in the next few days.

How funny are these faces? This is the look he was giving me when he figured out the crazy lady with the camera was going to be following him around for a while!
and just a tiny melt down....
Then I gave him a candy cane (and mama gave him some coke) ...
and he was just fine the rest of the time!

This was at the very end of our shoot and it is my favorite! Such a sweet face...

Roses are red ...

My hubby sent me roses yesterday for no reason at all! (OK, so maybe I did mention a few days ago that I needed a little romance, but he listened! How great is that?) I love him with all my heart and even through the bad times I would rather be with him then anyone else on earth... and come to think of it, the bad times really aren't that bad! I love you Craig, thank you for my roses. x o

Mom and Dad's Christmas Card

Don't they look great! Definitely not old enough to have an almost thirty year old daughter. Oops, I think I just gave away my age :)
