12,465 images from our last 2 weeks

we had a wonderful christmas holiday
we've been shopping
drinking hot chocolate
watching movies
attending concerts
& thoroughly enjoying each others company
with a house full of girls
we're doing the best we can

i've been mia from the blogworld
& have forgotten to turn on my cell
sometimes for days at a time

here are a few
images from our little world
over the last couple weeks
some are dreadfully blurry
which is why
my goal for 2010
is to become well versed in the use of my camera!!

me &the girlies christmas eve

& since we had no one to capture a fam shot
dan & the girlies christmas eve
while i'm on christmas eve
i must tell ya
our church rented an enormous facility
in hopes that instead of doing 7 christmas eve services
as they did last year
they could provide one
service where we could all worship together
plus have room for , the community to join

i'm here to tell ya
i've never been in a more beautiful
christmas eve service
even if i was in a completely full venue
with 8000
8000 others

i was supposed to work that evening
but thankfully another nurse traded with me
spending that service
sitting between my most favorite people in the world
was truly my best chirsmtas present

madi's debut as a cheerleader

ice skating with savannah

watching my fave movie
you've got mail
with my dog brinkley
named after tom hank's dog brinkley

i love to set a cute table
since i stink at indoor shots
i moved a few place settings outside
to photograph
it was way too sunny
but anyway...

no i dont spoil the baby
those are not all for her

she clenched the award
for best reaction post gift opening
-eek....blurry deadgum indoor shot-
tickets for the harlem globetrotters with dad
cuz now she's a baller you know

i have thoroughly enjoyed
popping in on many of my fave bloggers
you , of course
through my google reader
{& even though i haven't left many comments
i have been checking in on everyone}
& seeing so many inspiring
new years resolotions

hope to get back in the saddle
very soon
Happy 2010!!!

I am on my way for more Christmas business take-down but wanted to wish you my friend a precious 2010. Thank you for posting all of your beautiful faces. Love each and every image blurry or not they are a part of you all and I love them! I love most is that you so appreciate the little moments and that your cell phone is turned off. I think that is how it should be.

Miss you much my friend. I will call this week.

Off to enjoy the freezing burrrrrrr cold to do outside lighting take-down! Pray I feel my fingers today will!

Raining Pearls said...

Looks like an amazing two weeks!

I adore ALL your photos, they capture the moment and the reason for the season! LOVE your table settings, I'm getting the little coke bottles for mine next year. And how good are the Joe, Joes' from TJ's. I think I could eat a box.

Wishing you all a beautiful 2010, can't wait to see it :)

Just concentrating on other things right now that need my time & attention and there's simply not enough to go around...but I still read what everyone else is up to as well! :) Pics are awesome and sounds like your holidays were as well. Take care!
