I have managed to get some photo sessions done and I have been up to my waist in editing. I am very busy, which has been a lot of work, but I am so thankful for it. I also got around to doing a self portrait shoot after reading an article called "The Importance of Portraits." I wanted to test out what I learned, and without sounding too bratty, I think they turned out pretty good. The article stressed the importance of not "editing the life out of a face" so I did my best to leave my giant pores and tear duct tumor alone.Last weekend Matt, Sam and I drove down south to attend a Nativity display, and we were asked to be the Holy Family in a live one. Sam did very well, and enjoyed all the attention that he received as Baby Jesus. (photo courtesy of Melissa Dillon)We also found a home for two of our family members this week. First to go was Tina, our bearded dragon. We have been unable to find the time to re-socialize her, so some family friends of ours decided to give it a try. I am excited to see how she does with more interaction. (Tina and my brother Cory in '07) Second was Helga our VW Jetta. I have to admit, so far she isn't very missed. We have been through a LOT in that car (accidents, breakdowns, etc) but Matt and I (mostly Matt) were ready to move on. She will be enjoying the rest of her life in Oregon.
Sam got his 3rd hair cut today, and I love it. He thinks it makes him look like a "tough guy." :)
This week is another one packed with errands, events and chores so I am sure there will be more to come when I find the time!
