(nice dream)

i hope everyone is okay with a silly christmas card photo, because that is what you're getting. it is silly but beautiful, i think. i am quite happy with it. thank you, ashley.

these are the first pictures i've taken with the pentax. i have the bad kind of pride about them.

these are rad - is that some kind of cool camera?

You made the right choice, going with the silly. I dreamt about it last night. Also about what to do with my own Christmas photo conumdrum.

hooray! i'm glad it's all worked out. i look really special in that photo. isn't the first time use of an slr so satisfying?

my mom is bringing her film slr with her this Christmas and she's letting me use it until i get a dslr. i feel a little bit better knowing this, but i also wish i had the quick satisfaction of a digital.

eliza, it is a pentax slr camera. meaning, it uses film and it can use different lenses. and you are more in control of the picture, adjusting the aperture, manually focusing. i really know nothing about it but ashley helped me and i like them!

I *LOVE* the first one of Milo. It looks like he's getting ready to punch someone's lights out (which I know he would never really do). ;-) And I love the last one of Pearl. That is one beautiful little girl you've got there.

I can't wait to see your Christmas card. Maybe next year I will try to be creative with ours, but do you know how hard it is to get 7 kids to look at the camera at the same time and smile? Especially when two of them are teenagers and moaning about the photo shoot and influencing their younger sibs that photos shoots are lame? *Sigh* It was easier when they were younger and liked getting pics taken.

haha, abby you make me laugh. i do judge you. just kidding, just kidding, just kidding.

I can't make mine materialistic because I don't exactly have good taste, but I enjoy reading others' like yours because they have good taste! =)

i guess i'm bad because i don't keep a for realz journal so my blog is my journal and if it's the only thing i'm keeping to jot my thoughts i better not just have all the things i want down and nothing about me. that would be sad.

Abby, those look great. I want to get creative next year too. This year I went with Walgreens again, b/c of lack of time, and they suuuuuuuck. Alas. Thanks to you and your sisters for being the model for cool cards! Next year I vow to step up.
