Merry & Bright?

Took the kids to see Chicken Little today. It was Arielle's first time in the movie theater and she was wonderful. We picked up some Santa hats (didn't want to climb in the attic and look for last years...) Just playing around with doing indoor photo shoots with a backdrop. I hate the lighting and shadows. *sigh* It's not even December yet, and it's WARM here, so it's hard to think about Christmas! I wanted to do a family shoot, but Jeff had to work late - so I just played with Arielle. Jasmine joined in on the fun towards the end.

Louisiana Thanksgiving

It was a nice Louisiana Thanksgiving. A nice, warm (not hot), sunny day in the country at Jeff's brothers house. Arielle played with her younger cousins, and Daniel enjoyed the riding the 4-wheeler - even taking Mom for a ride. I took lots of photos and enjoyed watching the kids play. We even gathered on the huge front porch steps for a family gathering photo.

Next door is a stable with HORSES! We took the younger kids down for a visit.

Blah Blah Blah

I only blog when I have something to blog about... Hmmm... lets see... Oh - I thought of something. (he he). I won a random drawing at Scrapbook Resumes last week. They are celebrating their anniversary and giving away prizes daily! One of my prizes is a P3 paper organizer and it should arrive today! I can't wait. The whole prize package has a retail value of $150!

I did have an interesting phone call this morning from New York. It was from the secretary of a previous art collector - a collector of my SON'S art work, that is. When the 9-11 events happened, Daniel participated in the 9-11 charity art auctions on ebay. One of his collectors was extremely moved by his participation. When Katrina hit Louisiana, he was concerned about us and mailed Daniel a letter. The letter was returned because our address changed - so they tracked us down and phoned us. They are resending the letter. I wonder what it says. Anyway - you can view the art at this link

Speaking of art, I'm going to get to work on some new pieces and some commissions soon. I'm going to have to put up my scrapbook projects for several days. I love doing both but the transition for one medium of creating to the other is the tough part.
