Ben is a boy of few words. His vocabulary consists of a few words that he says regularly. Mama, Dada, & Da (Dog). He pretty much understands everything we say to him though. He does not like the word "NO". You wanna see a huge fit, tell him "no". You'll see one. But such as life. 
For Christmas he got this little doggie. The kind you pull along & it makes barking sounds. My Mother In Law got it for him. He absolutely LOVES that thing. He drags it all over the house & carries it everywhere he goes. He even tries to feed it his milk cup. He's got a thing for dogs. He even sleeps w/ a "Pluto" dog at night. Chewing on his ears helps him fall to sleep. 
Here are a couple photos of him I took today:

Here's Ben trying to feed the dog

Christmas 2010

My Christmas was WONDERFUL!!! I got a new lens, Gerald got garage tool stuff, the kids made out like bandits. I wanted to concentrate this holiday season to do things as a family that would help bring home what Christmas is about. Christmas morning we read out of the Bible, the story of Jesus' Birth. Then the kids opened their gifts. We had a WONDERFUL dinner & desserts galore. It was a WONDERFUL day to be together as a Family!!!

My Trip To Krohn Conservatory

I recently went to Krohn Conservatory in hopes of them having their live nativity set up. But it wasn't set up yet. I just took photos of the beautiful flowers instead. I always LOVE going over there b/c it's a photographer's dream come true. especially if you wanna get some nature shots!

Here are some photos from my trip:

The Goldies

I had a blast hanging out w/ my dear friend Megan & her children. We went to this abandoned (or so we thought) powder factory & got some shots. I've been wanting to go there for some time. This was my chance. We ended up getting run out of there midway through the shoot. Needless to say, I won't be going back there anytime soon.

Here are some photos from the shoot:

Ben's Growing Up WAY Too Fast!!!

Ben is getting around sooooo well now! He's practically running. As some may know, once a child gets mobile, they are into EVERYTHING!!! Such as the case w/ Ben. Now, he's obsessed w/ my Tupperware. He's always dragging it out of my cabinets & playing w/ it. I don't mind though. I'm just hoping he'll be the next Bobby Flay one day!

 Here's Ben talking to his girlfriend on my phone!

A Simple Photo...

I will be going to Evan's Kindergarten Parent/Teacher Conference on the 19th of this month. Evan just amazes the heck outta me. He is just soooo willing to learn & soak everything up. He LOVES school & has made sooooo many new friends. Here is a photo I took of him the other day, but just got around to editing. Yea, I like taking photos of my children. I just want them to look back on their photos in 20 yrs & see how much I loved them. I pour all my love for them into each photo I take of them.

Our Christmas Card!

Our Christmas Card is finished, but I have no idea which one to choose! I like them both! I'm really excited to finally get it done though. Both kids were real troopers & cooperated well even though it was a bit chilly out. Here is the finished product!!!
