From Great-Grandma:

"Don't blame me, I was born awesome!"

I just might be getting carried away with taking pictures to document just about anything! But can you blame me with having a new camera and a little model always on hand!? :)

Just finished:

Trying to get a head start on warm wear for the cooler months to come.

Camera Strap Cover

Last night I hung out with friends (and fellow bloggers) Beth and Alicia; each showed me sewing projects they have been working on lately. It made me want to get my sewing machine back out and finish up my quilt! That may take another trip to the fabric store for some batting, so I'll have to wait...BUT in the meantime I made this handy-dandy-super-cute camera strap cover to add on my new camera! :)

I finally broke down saved enough money to buy a DSLR camera! There are so many opinions and so much information out there that it took me a while to figure out which one would be best for me to buy. BUT thanks to the help of a wonderful friend, I made the purchase! I am (so far) very happy with my Canon Rebel XS. I have read through the manual and still have ALOT to learn, but I'm so glad I spent the money. Here is one of Callie that I just took this morning:
Quite a step up from the pictures I have been taking with my point-and-shoot camera, wouldn't you agree? :)

Ty & Krystal's Wedding

July 10th, my brother (Ty) got married to his longtime girlfriend Krystal! The wedding was beautiful, the weather was gorgeous, and overall it was a great day! Here are a few pictures that I stole from my mom's camera:My sisters and brothers were all in the wedding party...and a good friend of ours made Callie's dress from the extra material from hemming Miranda's dress!Ty and Krystal had the biggest smiles on their faces all day long! I'm so happy for them to finally tie the knot! :)
Our little family all dressed up!
The reception was held at an outdoor park/gazebo and was so much FUN! We had the best BBQ ever, ultimate frisbee, washers, music/dancing, and CAKE!
Some of us made t-shrits that read "Game Over"! LOL!
