So...Christmas, Round TWO...at my mom's house. Just as good food, left us just as stuff, which left my clothes pretty stretched. I have no...absolutely NO, self-control around the holidays. I will be the first to admit, I'm not a natural born cook. I can do a good job with a meal every blue moon, but I really don't enjoy cooking (it's like a chore to me) and usually I do the minimal effort to avoid dishes.  So when I get to eat as much food as I want, made by someone else, for a super special occasion, that tastes soooooo delicious...I take full advantage of the situation...and EAT, EAT, and EAT some more! YUM, In My TUM! :) ...I think after the new year, I'm going to have to seach and find my gym card, dust it off, add some new upbeat tunes to my iPod and get my bootie into shape. ...but until then.... hehehe

So...where would I be without my lil sista. Amanda-Maria-Antionio-Bandarez (our pet names for eachother)...didn't like my idea of doing pot roast for Christmas dinner. So she threw on an apron and whipped up a fabulous, super-tasty, glorifying Mexican fiesta dinner. It was sooooooo good I just about burst out of my clothes from eating so much. We had gobs and gobs of food.

Then, after we feasted, it as time for a little gift exchange. So this group of pictures is the series of pics I got when Niki opened up her "life-size-Barbie".

The first pic is of her with her new plastic friend (who she named Nickalina).

The second pic is her carrying Nickalina off to her bedroom.

The third pic is of Niki showing back up to the living room wearing her doll's clothes (how they fit, I'll never know).

The fourth pic is the her brother's reaction.

...I then went and found the near-naked Nickalina doll and had my Dad hold it for a quick snap shot. hehehe

Thought this series of Tate using his great-grandma for target practice...was priceless. I told Mimi a mere pillow wouldn't save her.

Ahhhh....and then it was Christmas morning. A beautiful pink glow at the window told me a quick photo was necessary to capture the Christmas magic. This next shot is the view of my backyard at 7:34am...right about the peaceful silence was broken with Niki's shrieking when she was her new Barbie Jeep Powerwheels. Yikes!

I hope everyone woke up today refreshed and happy. It is a beautiful day! Wishing everyone that warm feeling that being at home and around loved ones brings!

My Father-in-law's beautiful wife Jan just turned the WHOPPING 50 YEARS OLD!!!! WAHOOOO!!!!  You definitely wouldn't know her age by looking at her, though.  She's one of those people who could easily win those little prizes at World's of Fun when they try to guess your age.

The beginners of "the cool club" (otherwise known as us straggler-independent-photographers who want to be geeky by organizing photoshoots for fun)...Sarah Rimel and I...went out and about the Plaza Sunday evening for a relaxing time shooting the plaza lights.  The atmosphere was perfect, and it wasn't too cold and wasn't too windy....wala, a wonderful shoot.

This is when I realized, I really am a portrait photographer at heart...when I found myself photographing a portrait inside a building. hehe

Me and the lovely Sarah Rimel.  This took a couple tries...I'm not a master at long exposures...or holding still until the picture is done. haha

Yes...Yes...I've neglected my blog lately...but only because I've been buried under wrapping paper, scissors, tape, print orders, boxes, Christmas decorations, ...I've been a busy bee trying to get everyone's orders put in before Christmas.  But, time's been running out and I really needed to get this Grosdidier family their pictures done.  

This is the coolest family...and when Karla (aka: family organizer) called and asked if I would get some nice family shots while her brother was in town, OF COURSE I was IN!  However, can't exactly say I was prepared for walking into a room filled with 22 people ready to be in front of the camera. HAHA!  I can officially say, that is one of the largest family group shots I've ever shot...at least, indoors anyway.  BUT I DID IT!  

This is two humorous shots of the chaos that comes along with 22 people confined in a room and having a camera shoved in their face.

...and this is weeeeellllll worth it.  What a good lookin' family!

These are the two responsible for all the rest of the 20 people.
