Our Family Video

Back in October my dear friend Shannon Stevenson did our family photos. We absolutely love them and have them massive in our home, not to mention that they grace the pages of our 2010 xmas card.

We also had the fabulous Geoff and Naomi from Weddings in Motion come and video the session. They created the most beautiful video of us and every time I watch it, it brings tears to my eyes.

Thank you Shannon, Geoff and Naomi for freezing that moment in time for us. It's something we will treasure. Forever.

Bragging Mommy Alert: Look away if you must!!

Some of you know that back in August, my kiddos modeled for the fabulous Michelle Libby of Studio 32 for a spread in the 2011 issue of Aislewalk magazine. Aislewalk is an awesome vendor filled magazine for the Vancouver bride. Erin Gilmore is the creative genius behind this gorgeous book and you must check it out... (and not just cause my kids are in it!).

The launch party was last night so I can finally share the images with you! Yippee!!


Scroll down and click on Cakes... that'd be Ash and Jake right there!

The coolest part about the launch (other than the amazing digs, the delicious food and the gorgeous company) was that Ash and Jake actually received an award for being in the magazine!! It was soooo sweet and I can't believe that of all the things that Erin had planned for that night, she included a shout out to my kiddos. So sweet!

They're pretty sure they're famous now and are plotting a way to thanks Miss Erin. I'm sure they'll come up with something great! ;)

I have a bunch of copies so if you want one, grab one from me! :)

The Break is Over!

Well, I don't even know if I have any followers on this blog anymore and that's ok. I mainly post here so that I have a bit of a diary of our lives... later I will print it all out for our kids and hopefully they'll get a kick out of it when they're older.

So every time I swing past the blog, or somebody mentions it, I get a little feeling of guilt knowing that I've neglected it all summer. We've had some great times and I really want to document that!!

So my goal over the next few weeks is to go back and post our summer photos (geeze, do I even have them all uploaded to the computer???). There's awesome stuff.... like our trip to DisneyLand, tons of camping trips, Halloween and more. Ash has lost so many teeth, Ted is heading back to work, Jake has learned to skate and is now in HOCKEY!! and I just moved in to my very own photography studio.

I'm going to post date them all back to the appropriate dates just so that it's good for printing later, but it should all work nicely! ;)

So stay tuned...

Nikon Testing

That's right, as of late, I've had enough of Canon.. I want clarity and focusing and more focus points... all things I can get with a Nikon system.

So I headed over to photographer friend's of mine. She graciously allowed me to play with her D700 (which is the camera I'm thinking of getting) to see if maybe I was the one causing the poor clarity and bad focus or if it really was just the freaking camera!!!! (Side note: after doing multiple tests, canon has told me that it's me and not the camera).

Ok so 5 minutes outside of Erin's studio with Jake and I have now realized that I'm not crazy!! It isn't me!!! It IS the camera!!! WAHOOOOOOOO! Tomorrow I am heading to purchase a complete Nikon system cause how do you say no to this clarity and color:

First Camp Trip of the Season

..... and it rained and rained and rained. We headed down to Sandy Point for the weekend. We love going down there cause we just bring the trailer down and chill out on the ocean and Ted's brother's beach house. Usually the kids' cousins are down as well so they all play together (usually in the trailer) and we all just relax. LOVE IT!

On this particular weekend, we ALL spent the entire weekend in the trailer. And it rained and rained and rained. Weekends like these make me thankful that I'm not in some rayon tent sleeping on the ground and getting soaking wet. Have I mentioned how much I absolutely LOVE our trailer!?!?!

Blair and Kafaleen

Blair and his lovely girlfriend Kathleen are here from Winnipeg this week and I'm so glad they are... we miss them...SOOOOOO much. I've been trying to work out a plan to get them to move home, but nothing has come to mind yet. So if anyone has a good one, let me know! ;)

Anyways, my dad's house is COVERED... no, PLASTERED in photos of my kids. So he was mentioning that he really wanted a photo of my brother and Kafaleen (as Jake calls her). Well!! With such gorgeous weather... let's head out to the field!!!

Here's a couple shots! Love you guys!!

Oh.... sorry.... not that one.... THESE are the goodies! ;) (Click on them to get a bigger view)
