Happy Halloween!


I love this portrait of Maddy and her great Grandma Olive's hands...

The Launch of my New Website and Blog

So I have finally updated my website and am pretty proud of how it turned out. I am still updating a couple of the galleries, but the bulk of it is pretty much ready to go. I also finally created a seperate photography blog dedicated just to portraits and wedding/event photography. I hope you guys enjoy it! Let me know what you think! If anyone has any other song ideas for galleries, I would appreciate the input. Have fun!

Halloween Time at Disneyland!

And here are some pics of us at the Halloween Time at Dland event. It was super fun. We went with our friends Jess and Betsy and their cute kids Ruby (the ghost), and Gus (Stay Puft). Maddy was a cute little banana, but this was only her warm-up costume. She's got another one in process for Halloween that is super!

Betsy and I thought this pic was so cute... We totally caught them off gaurd. This is how it always should be right?
Waiting for the parade and still happy at 10:30pm!

Maddy was so good and LOVED Disneyland. We are totally gonna have to get passes for Christmas! Right Tony?


Ok, So I have kinda dropped off the planet for awhile, and probably still will be for another week, so I thought I would update everyone on our lives right now...

It has been a long run, but FINALLY we closed escrow on our little fixer upper by the beach. We were almost ready to give up, when it closed just a couple hours before our rate lock expired. Everything that could go wrong, went wrong. Every day for the last 2 weeks it seems there was a major problem dealing with our lender that took up our every minute trying to fix things. The economy I think had a major role in all our problems. The stock market crashed just a couple days before we were origionally supposed to get our loan, and the problems all came pouring in.

So anyways...we have our house and we are soooo happy! Now the renovations begin! We have never done anything like this, so we are a little nervous about the work, but super excited that we get to design the house how we would like it. Now if only we can stay in our budget...

We are also moving this week into my parent's house until our house is livin ready. Hopefully by the new year we can be in our own home and finally settle down!

I can't wait!

Here is our new little house, it's ok now, but imagine it with a cute little white picket fence, all those scary bushes and trees gone, pastel yellow paneling, black shutters, white trim, and lots of colorful Hydrangeas (my favorite flower)... Can you see it?
And here are some recent pics of the fam..
