MERRY CHRISTMAS! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
if you want to know the truth – neither me or ruby are ready at all for the holidays to be over already! oh well, fortunately it seems the older i get, the faster the years go – so christmas will be here again before we know it! that’s what i’m going to tell myself at least 😉
it has become tradition for jake and i to celebrate christmas eve with his family, and christmas day with mine. this year was no exception – and just like every other year, i took a million photos! it’s part of duty, i feel – to be able to share these photos with my family. also, all year long i am so busy working, i sometimes can feel that i don’t have time to document my own life with photos! so i love to take advantage of capturing my own memories whenever i can. well this year i took so many that i couldn’t possibly share them all here, but i have chosen some of my favorites. hope everyone’s holiday was super fun and SAFE! i shot my last session of the year today, so i am officially looking forward for 2011! does anyone have any fun resolutions? i think i am just aiming to be more organized and efficient in my work and to just maintain a healthier lifestyle. we shall see.
anyway, so here are some of my favorites from both of our christmas days, in no particular order:
mom’s christmas dinner. she is an AMAZING cook. i am not half as good as she is!
candid dinner shot of my brothers darren & eric, and my neices sarah and heather and sarah’s lovely boyfriend cody.
