It's How You Live

This song has such a great message...especially at this time of year when it is so easy to get stressed out by the "stuff" of life. We hope you find time to "turn up the music" this Christmas and in the coming year. Happy Holidays!

It's not so much fun

being the child of a photographer. People ask me a lot if my kids get tired of getting their pictures taken. Yes they do...but I take them anyway.
To see here.

Are they identical?

I still get asked this question all the time. Although we don't "officially" know the answer because we never sent a sample of their DNA to get tested, I always answer "no". When they were little, they did look quite a bit alike...but in the past few years they really have been developing their own looks, as well as personalities and interests. Once you get to know them, you would never think they are identical. Carter is into sports sports sports, is very competitive, and worries a lot about what other people think. Cooper is into music and trucks and talking to others, especially adults, and is more laid back. Here is a photo of them last Saturday...identical? I'll let you decide.

My favorite commercial

party time

We had our first Christmas celebration of the season last night. And there just happened to be a big Gopher/Sioux rivarly going on too! The kids played an ornament exchange game, decorated cookies, and cheered on their favorite team.

i loved this weekend

Here's why:

1. Snow started falling Friday night and we woke up Saturday morning to a fresh blanket of white snow that the kids enjoyed playing in all day.
2. I figured out what I was doing for Christmas cards and got them ordered.
3. We got to start decorating for Christmas...AND got to listen to lots of Christmas music, my favorite!
4. Tim and I got to go out for dinner and drinks with friends.
5. I got caught up on all photo sessions for 2007...that feels good!
6. The kids and I went on our annual trip to pick out their ornaments...this year we have an iceskater holding a dog, a soccer player, a coffee cup, and a cute dalmation with pigtails.

Here are some pics of the weekend.

A few of my favorite ornaments from my tree!
