Shae's Christmas Pictures

Shae's First Christmas
Santa delivered his gifts to
this wonderful family a little early
this year.
It filled a whole stocking.

She is such a cutie and blessing to her family.

She can even drive the sleigh!

Even has a Miss Santa suit....

Oops, lost her clothes somewhere!

Such a sweetheart,
And that's the "bare" truth!

She smiles almost all the time!

After all that work, had to have a little bath time.

Being cute is not all THAT easy!

Every girl needs a little pampering!
Look at those big blue eyes!!

A hard days work, bath time, pampering and then...
It's all thumbs from there.

Merry Christmas Miss Shae
Easter will be here before you know it
I'll have the lights and camera waiting!

Friday Funnies

Oops, It isn't Friday Yet Is It?

But I will be out shopping so here is my Friday joke early. And...
on top of that it is a Thanksgiving joke that I should have posted last week.
But I just found it so here it is.
Be sure to go visit with Kim at Homesteaders Heart this Friday
for the real Friday Funnies.
Thanksgiving with The Old Folks
A man in Phoenix calls his son in New York two days before Thanksgiving and says, " Son, I hate to ruin your day, but I have some bad news to tell you. Your mother and I are divorcing; forty-five years of misery is enough."
"Dad, what are you talking about?" the son screams.
"We can't stand the sight of each other any longer," the father says. "We're sick of each other, and I'm sick of talking about this, so you call your sister in Chicago and you tell her."
Frantic, the son calls his sister, who explodes on the phone. "Like heck they're getting divorced," she shouts, "I'll take care of this."
She calls Phoenix immediately, and screams at her father, "You are NOT getting divorced. Don't do a single thing until I get there. I'm calling my brother back, and we'll both be there tomorrow. Until then, don't do a thing, DO YOU HEAR ME?" and hangs up.
The old man hangs up his phone and turns to his wife. "Okay," he says, "the kids are coming for Thanksgiving and even paying their own way."
OK, I think that is pretty cute. So if anyone has any extra time on Friday and want to link me up with Kim, then go right ahead. But I will be out shopping on Black Friday and probably will not be on the computer.....probably....maybe.....we'll see.

I So Warned You Part II

Another Day!!!
Today I was to take Allie's one year pictures.
I had told Sarah to send over several outfits and let me torture
the kids and as you saw yesterday...mission accomplished.
But this was a very special shooting.
I had wanted to take Allie's first birthday pictures and I am only
one month behind. Not too bad for me!!
The thing I have not learned to do is to post my pictures in reverse order
So you are getting the last pictures first (except for this very first one!)
Some day I will learn to do it the way it needs to be done, but till then, enjoy
the pictures from dirty to clean. I think I am getter better each time.
What do you think?

This is my favorite that I will enlarge Grandpa and Allie having some cake time.

Caleb jumped in with grandpa after having shared cake earlier, hence the no shirt look.

Oh yes, it was really good cake!

Oh I loved this shoot, this was so fun and Allie is so cute.
I think I like getting these lights, now if I could just make
some money to help me pay for them!!!

Oh I So Warned YOU!!

Ok, if you are not a BIG fan of my grandkids, you really need to to just skip my posting today, because the next...uuummmmm 40 pictures are of my precious grandchildren. Chris and Sarah are in Dallas this weekend for a Navy Awards Banquet and I have the privilege of having the kids including Chloe!
Everyone is doing great and I was so blessed to get to take a ton of pictures.
I took some yesterday and again today, but getting time to put them on the Internet is another story let me tell you.
(Linda, click on the picture to make it larger and then use your back arrow to return to the blog ok? Thought you might like to enlarge the picture!)
These first few pictures are of the kids with their Christmas clothes.
I got a huge kick out of Caleb's clothes for his momma sent them over from last
year. He put his pants on and they were about 4" too short. We told
him to go put his jeans back on!!! And then laughed!

I got so much attitude and expression....I had a lot of fun!

But to get a dozen good shots, I had to take 90 pictures!
Well close to it anyways!

I HAD to include this one.....

And I thought this might make a cute Christmas card for Sarah!

Let me tell you, I EARNED every picture today!!!
They did not just give them away.

She hardly stood still for even one shot,
it was like, "hurry grandma, I got places to go
and people to see".

Caleb was my little trooper. He did all of this for????
A Scooby Snack!!! Can you believe that??

And here she was falling off the stool...
It's ok momma, grandpa caught her, whew!

This was her sort of Halloween costume. She was a kitty cat
but grandma changed it up some and just did a cute kid!

I can't help it, I just think she is too stinking cute!

This is a little red and black tutu and then she
had cat ears I think Sarah said. But we just put a bow
on her head and white tights....and called it good!
Even in Black and White!

Brother and sister, Caleb helped to hold her down for a couple seconds this time.

Just another one.
and more

And more


And now another change of clothes!

Black and white again!

Doesn't she look THRILLED!?

The hula girl, thanks to her "Aunt" Jenny's trip to Hawaii.
Look, I can touch my toes!
and I can smile.

These on the white background are not very good.
I am still learning and trying so with time I will get better.
But the kids were sure good to me and for me.
Sarah, thank you for going out of town this weekend
I so enjoy these kids.
Next time I want to take pictures of the whole family!
Can you say "CHEESE!?"
