Happy New Year

2009 The New Year always brings a new start, new slate ,and the possibilities of new adventures. Our family is excited for this New Year. I have a lot to Blog about and get caught up. I have wanted to get some nice pictures of the kids and it unfortunately never worked out. We missed getting our Christmas cards out this year because we didn't have a recent picture of all of us. My brother and his wife Lesley were here for a week visiting.Lesley has recently taken up photography and while she was here we threw together a little photo shoot.I needed three specific pictures. One for our New Year Cards, One for my mother-in-law of my three kids for her desk at work and one of Ella (Kyle's little girl) with my three kids for my parents.Lesley found this pretty cool place to take pictures outside. Exactly what I had in mind.It was a nice day until we started taking pictures. Then the wind really picked up. The kids said they were freezing. It was interesting to watch people look at us as they drove or walked by. All of a sudden this guy and his dog go walking by, when the dog crosses the street and heads right for Conor.He tried to lick Conor to death. Poor little guy! There were some hysterical moments in the quick fifteen minutes. I'm grateful she was able to get some really great pictures. Thanks Les!





I'm in love....
Our home computer died a few months ago. We have debated back and forth on what to do about getting a new one. We bought our dell right after Jaxon passed away. It was supposed to be great to copy all our video of him to dvd. Monday I made the decision to order a new computer. After much research I learned a imac would be ideal for our family. So we have crossed over to the apple way of life. Yippee! As Marli would say "My one true love... I love you" It was delivered today and I'm happy to welcome this baby into our family.Hopefully it will become my new best friend and I'll get caught up on blogging.
