Clayton the Angel

Clayton was really impacted by the GBS Christmas Program.  His favorite part was the angels and the tuba.  Quite the combination!  :-)  So, we've been re-inacting several parts and making up a lot as we go along.  The first thing he asked for was angel wings.  He's been singing "Gloria, Gloria" and running all through the house.  Aaron tried to get him to expand his 2-word song by adding "Gloria in excelsis Deo" (Latin for "Glory to God in the highest") - and yes, I had to google that to figure out how to spell it!

Garner Family

My friend, Debbie, and her children came over for a photo shoot.  We had the best time talking and laughing and letting Adley and Clayton play together.  Here's a few from the session:




Adley is fascinated with her new baby brother.

Sweet baby Lincoln.  It breaks my heart that his father has yet to see him in person.  His father is fighting for us overseas.


Little Santa Baby. :-)


Clayton had been napping (thus the bed hair), but quickly woke up when he realized his friend, Adley, was here.  :-)  Adley and Clayton are only a few weeks apart.

Snow Fun

I was so excited to see SNOW on Saturday morning.  My philosophy: If it's gonna be cold - then let's have snow.

However, I did have an outdoor photo session planned with our great friends Craig and Tonya.  So we talked and decided, why not go ahead anyway?  :-)

So glad they didn't mind braving the cold and the snow!  Even little Shane was a trooper!




On a side note . . .

I was trying so hard to make sure my kids would be warm and bundled up (since we were all going out in the cold together) that I put double layers on them, even had hats and gloves out.  We put them in their car seats with a blanket each and after we got to the park I realized I had left their warm winter coats AT HOME!  Eek!  So, the Lambeth's graciously let Addy wear Shane's coat (since he was in the picture) and Clayton was content to run around for extra warmth.  I'm glad I had them in double layers!  :-)

Thanksgiving Fun

We had a lot of fun in Indiana over Thanksgiving this year. . .

Clayton and Addyson enjoying the cool little kids table!

Yes, she's nearly one, but this was her first Thanksgiving.

The first snow of the season - we all rushed outside to check it out (without coats!).

Caris showing Clayton some tricks with his slinky.

Eating Chinese - one of our favorites!

The owner of this restaurant loves children. She came to our table and took Addyson back to the kitchen to show the other girls.  :-)

Checking out the Colts merchandise.

Even Addy sported a hat (for a few seconds).

Clayton found Cameron's little graduation gown from Kindergarten and was playing with it.

Thankful for my family!

Praying Hands

Most of my photography includes faces - I love taking pictures of people!  However, when Helen Reiff asked me to photograph her husband's praying hands with his Bible I said, "Of course!"

I love this photo and know his children will treasure this print.

Crystal + Anthony = married

What a JOY to photograph this lovely wedding!  Crystal & Anthony were so much fun to work with!


 





Absolutely gorgeous flowers!!

LOVE this shot!

My favorite part of the ceremony was when the entire wedding party joined in singing The Lord's Prayer together . . . chills

Balloons have got to be my favorite - loved the fall colors! 

Riding in style!  Anthony surprised Crystal with this.

And what a classy reception with awesome music! 

What a happy couple!

The Bishop Family

Nothing is more fun than photographing a family - I just love family pictures! 

I told Kelsey's parents that "moving" pictures make great pictures - it simply shows what stage of life they are in. I love how these turned out!






 
Thanks, Jackie and Bradley!

A Dash to NC

We made a quick dash to North Carolina last weekend and thoroughly enjoyed our stay with Kendall and Leanna!


Clayton loved being with Tyson!  It was warm enough to be on the front porch for just a little bit.

We really enjoyed the Gaither Homecoming concert on Saturday.  The Isaac's are pictured here. 

I thought this was so funny - this lady nearly had her phone stuck right in David Phelp's face trying to get a close picture!



 The cutest little shark!

Clayton had just gotten up from a nap and was just sitting with his arm around Tyson. :-) 

The kiddos . . . and yes, I'm about to drop Clayton. 

Poor Tyson, he got lots of hugs from Clayton.

And Addyson couldn't leave him alone either. She kept touching him and patting him.  I hope he recovered from our stay. :-)



So glad that NC still has Krispy Kreme stores!  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, these!!!


All good things must come to an end.
