On this Merry Christmas day

Andy & I had a great christmas. I didn't get any Christmasy photos sadly, but I did get a bunch of Sadie. I made a great friend with her. She's my newest cuddle buddy! I've been taking a lot of Christmas type photos before Christmas even arrived, so I couldn't think up anything new to do for photos on Christmas. So I just said, hey I don't have that many of Sadie, I'll have her be a model for me!
I got a new bracelet from Tara's Diary that I absolutely love! And I got an EWA Marine underwater case for my camera! So I'll be able to go to the beach more often and in the pool with my camera now! I might start some new photography styles with it, now that I can go underwater!

This one is my favorite portrait of her. She looks so happy to me.

Sadie then decided that she wanted to crawl up onto my hip and leg and lay down on me while I laid down to take a nap. (That's a new hat I'm wearing, it looks odd because of the angle and how I was laying down.) Andy took this photo for me. I wanted a record of how she cuddles with me.

The visit on the 18th.

I apologize in advance for the mass updating of my blog entries. I'm going to try to have them auto post themselves each day, so I don't overwhelm anyone with my posts.

Anyways, my Aunt from Mass. came down for a quick visit on December 18th and my nieces were there. I naturally took pictures of only them because my family members are all horribly camera shy. Which is so difficult for me, being a photographer.

I tried a new editing style with this one photograph of Cooper. 
Most of the others only have a color filter over them.

THE chocolate cookies

The Saturday before Christmas weekend my grandmother made her famous chocolate cookies.
So I naturally snapped a few photos. I love watching her bake. She gets so into it.

This past Friday I went over Andy's house and we took Molly for a walk. I couldn't really get some great photos of her as she isn't camera trained. HAHA But the scenery around his house is gorgeous! He lives right on a lake and we went for a walk during the golden hour and I got a couple nice shots.

Santa sighting!

Yesterday my two Aunts, my mother and I brought my two little nieces to the annual VFW Christmas Party and to see Santa! They were so good! Cooper's at that age where she feels the need to mow down anyone in her way to get to where she's going. She cut me off a couple of times. She was so funny! Tessa loved getting her face painted and had me go with her to get her butterfly face paint fixed when it smudged after she wiped her face, and then she decided that she wanted a lady bug too. Coops was terrified of Santa, she didn't know quite what to make of him, and Tessa was just so happy. They got great gifts from him too! Cooper got a playskool Little People Bus with three little people in it and she loved it, she was playing with it for the rest of the party, and Tessa got a little baby doll that speaks english and spanish that she can feed with either the bottle or baby food and it makes baby noises when she feeds it.
Overall this was the best part of the day.
