estee's view...

we got estee a fisher price digital camera for christmas and well she loves it to say the least... i think it is so funny what she chooses to take pictures of, pretty much every toy she owns has been photographed multiple times and i must say i think she is pretty good... well except for chopping almost everyones heads off!

here are a few that she took at christmas time.

more to come i'm sure... :)

a new layout...

i actually finished this layout earlier in the week (before everyone got sick) and am just getting around to posting it. i have been working on so many other projects that i haven't scrapbooked at all in the last few months, i had fun with this one.

she really is such a sweet one.

sick day...

chris and i have both been out of commission today... big time. luckily i am feeling a bit better tonight but chris is in a bad way still.

fortunately the girls have not caught the bug (crossing my fingers it stays that way) and they have been playing together all day... i snapped this photo about an hour ago right after i mustered up enough energy to bathe them and get them ready for bed, it is so everything that today has been about for them... cartoons and keeping each other entertained.

it does my heart good seeing these two laugh together...

simone has two of them now, can you see them? needless to say i am terribly sleep deprived but she is looking very cute with her new pearly whites. i cant believe she is already six months and so-soooo close to crawling....

and one of both of them... i promise i do actually get them dressed!

and now a little give away...

i know my blog has been extremely lame lately so I'm getting things back on track here, leave a comment and i'll pick a winner this sunday, the winner will receive an 8x10 print of one of these photos i took in venice.

ann and i have something very fun in the works so check back for the details... :)

i hardly took any photos on the actual day, but what i got i just love.

here are a few...

oh, and the gifts!!:)
i am embarrassed to say i was very spoiled this year, while i know that this is not at all what christmas is about it does make me realize that i seriously have the most thoughtful people in the world for family...

i actually got this for a family gift, it is a gorgeous 11x14 2 inch galley wrap of my favorite family photo (taken by leah) chris loves it so much.

can you get over the beautiful additions to my favorite collection from my brother and sister in law erin? the deer S&P shakers are probably my favorite i have ever seen.

my sister got me the two greatest gifts AND they were a total surprise, a mint vintage typewriter in the box with the manual and a vintage set of stamps... i've said it before but she is way too good to me.

these are just a few of my favorite things, i don't have a photo of the beautiful christmas china my mom gave me, i have been pining for it for years. and of course my lens from chris.... wow i am one lucky girl!

also, i added a link to my sidebar with all of my equipment, i get tons of emails asking about it and while i do love getting emails i thought this would make it a bit easier!

Better late than never

Well, I did it. I mailed out my Christmas cards today...2 weeks after Christmas and without most of my friends and families addresses. So here it is for those of you who care and wont be getting it.

We are still here in California due to crazy weather but will probably be leaving sometime this week. When I get back to my computer I will post photos from the holidays...taken with my new fancy lens!!!
