Chatting with Santa

We went to see Santa and ryan had a good ole time chatting it up with Santa.  They talked about girlfriends, being naughty or nice, Legos, and the reindeer.  

Santa's reaction to girlfriends.  
Santa listening.

For Billie

Here are a few of the pictures I took.  Like you I only took 200+ that day.  These are a few of the fun ones.  This family was a lot of FUN and had great ideas.

I gave them a little face lift and added a filter.  LOL!

My favorite of the kids.

 They were stretching because I was trying for a jumping shot that didn't turn out, unfortunately.  This picture sums up how much fun they are.  
Just having fun! 

This just makes me laugh! The kids really got into character.  

The effect on this was totally accidental because I don't really know what I am doing but I like how it washed out the back ground.

Went to Buffalo with some friends.  
The American side was a frozen wonderland.  
Each blade of grass had a frozen bulb of ice on it.

Dinner took forever the other night because Ryan kept forgetting to pray about some important stuff... The neighbors watch, Legos, blankie, Darth Vader, Spiderman, Lego marvel game, etc... He would take a bite then saw he forgot to pray about something. The things that are important to a 5 year old.

We ended up going to the lake again and renting a boat with friends.  Here are some fantastic pics.  LOL!  

Nice hand placement there, Brodey.   

Here is a rare gem.  Me in my bathing suit jumping in the pool.

Brodey is like family to us.  Ethan, Olivia, Drew and Brodey spent a lot of time together growing up.  He is like my son from another mother.  Today is his 15th birthday.  Here are some flashback pics of all of them.

Birthday Party

I put together an impromptu birthday party at the last minute so Jake and Ryan could celebrate their birthdays together.  Jake's birthday is July 23rd, he turned 6 and Ryan's is August 12th.  He will be 5. It was fun considering it only took 15 minutes to pull off.  



Ethan thinks kissing the fish is lucky.  He does catch a lot of fish! 

Alex's turn to kids the fish! 
Olivia refused to kiss the fish.
