Someone, Who is Awesome,

...lent me her flash. The good kind. The kind that is external and not nuclear. Well if you use the right settings and point it the right way anyway. I kind of owe her. See you at Christmas Jen, I will come bearing your flash and goodies!

I have been having fun practicing. It is so nice to be able to take pictures indoors using manual settings without it looking like a solar flare blew up at the very moment I snapped the photo. Can you say shiny happy foreheads?

I signed up for this online photo workshop beginning Dec 1st and am looking forward to learning and playing.


It's Christmas Carol season in piano and he is developing my love of playing them on the piano. He is also 99% better at than me. I like to sing along and sometimes I even sing in the right key.

He does not necessarily love that I sing along.


That's okay, I chalk that up to annoying my kids is part of my job as a mom. It's an important one and I take it very seriously. Much to the annoyance of my kids. Moohohahahahah!


This is Rider. He even sat still when I took his picture. The first time. The next few times, he did not. Glad I got lucky.


One Sunday afternoon we had a pie making bee with friends. Apple pie to be exact. You see, we got boxes of apples from a school fundraiser. The apples were HUGE. And good. And perfect for pie.


I think the grand total was 8 or 9 pies. We have two in the freezer just waiting for unexpected company. Who's coming?

I'm glad you're enjoying the flash!!! The photos are great!

I wish I had a visit planned soon, I could really go for one of those pies! Apple is my favorite.

Apple pie is my favorite too!

And isn't the external flash great? I'd probably take zero photos in the winter if I didn't have one.

Those pies look YUM!
