Family Week

Happy thanksgiving!

Another trip to Flagstaff, this time for Thanksgiving. It was special because my brother Colin was coming in from Hawaii after we hadn't seen him for over a year. He had never met Wesley! And to add to a special week, my youngest brother Gaelen showed up from Santa Cruz. It was the first time we'd all been together since Chris and I got married and it was fun to have a little time together.


As you probably guessed, I made the cranberry sauce and I always love taking pictures of it. I also shaped the brioche bread into a reindeer for Noah, although it puffed up so much in the oven that it looked like a fat dragon creature when we served it.

Sadly, I didn't get around to getting a photo of us all together, but here is Gaelen playing guitar in my mom's sunny living room.


Okay, and I'm sorry for mentioning a new big thing and then leaving everyone (or, all three of my readers...) hanging. Now it won't sound like such a big thing if you were expecting something exciting. I've been waiting to hear for sure about getting accepted, but I'm going to tell you anyway that I'm re-applying to my medical anthropology PhD program to finish in the next couple of years. So who knows what will become of the photography business, but for now I'm still going to do a wedding here and there, we're going to Hawaii for spring break (yahooo!), and I'm going back to the life of a student (yikes, and sort of awesome too).

Busy Month

I know you were waiting for a photo of my little boys, not for a photo of these little bean bags I made for Noah's class to use as ice packs, but this is all I've got. We had two weddings last month and an engagement session last weekend, plus some other big things that I'll tell you about soon. A few things, including this blog (and other things, like credit card payments...) have fallen off my radar, but I'm done with everything for a little while, so I'll be back here with some photos of the little guys. Especially the one who is now walking, climbing up on the dining room table and dropping peppercorns all over the floor, and laying on the floor in tantrums when he doesn't get what he wants. We're in for it.

IMG_9235 We started with some pumpkins


And then a little ghost and a little princess out in the dark. I didn't get a photo of them from the front! Shame on me.


And then there were the toddly little forest creatures, intent on getting their share of the candy. You wouldn't have believed this little guy marching up to each door, pumpkin pail in outstretched hand, and as soon as he heard something plop into the pain, he was off to the next place. And, in true bear fashion, he had chowed down on a candy bar by the time we made it back, wrapper bits and all. The little bear costume was one that I made for Noah a few years ago. Click here to see him in it.

Sue Sylvester came along as well. And don't ask me what I was wearing. Green velvet drapery? Hmm.
