Christmas in Glen Ellyn:

On our way to Christmas in Rolla...

I can't get over her chunky fingers around the ribbons
He loved his snowman pooper shooter from Aunt Colleen

I did not plan the above photo. Although, Charlie wanted a turn:

"We got a Wii!! We got a Wii!"

"WHAT is that big boxy thing in front of her face?! She got another what?"

tuggin' my sleeve, Chicago is...

"Why I just grin like a clown, It's my kind of town..." Now join with me! "My kind of town Chicago is, My kind of people, too, people who smile-" ok, ok. I couldn't help myself!
One of my favorite past times: working on jigsaw puzzles with Mike. It snowed the previous night, therefore I wasn't able to kick his you know what in horse.
mmm getting ready to feast. The beginning of our homemade pizza

I was taken to the Morton Arboretum where I could test my new toy a little further. These are very few of the results. Didn't want to bore you with the "snow on tree" theme.
**See "tis the season" for 2 BONUS winter pics ;)

And to top off the weekend: Root Beer Floats!!!


This is a random collection of photos. I'm just beginning this "blog/photog" gig...
Bare with me.
Roomie #1: Jack. You won't see him with out a Diet Coke. Don't forget the straw ;)
One of Sis's (*married to Jack, Roomie #2) teapots. One of many, actually. She is quite the tea connoisseur.
You will notice in future posts that I am quite the fan of capturing little ones. They are always so adorable, whether sad (see Sadie above).. or happy (see Sadie below). Makes this whole picture taking process that much easier!
p.s. Don't be surprised if you see Sadie more than once... can you blame me?

"My kids aren't going to know what you look like because you always have that iPhone in your face..."
Well said, brother. Therefore, I took it upon myself to find a real camera. Enjoy as you see my rookie eye take on the world!
