Black and White Photography

I decided that it would be fun to take some BW pictures since I hadn't done it for a while. Here they are, what do you think?

Alex's Newborn Pictures

Ok, I am such a slacker! It may seem odd that I am posting pictures of Alex when she was a newborn, but here is the story. When we were in the hospital with Alex, a professional photographer came around to the rooms and offered to take pictures of the newborn babies. We were already planning on having my friend take her 2 week old pictures, but since it wouldn't cost us anything, we thought that we might as well have her picture taken a the hospital. When we got home, the pictures were posted but we didn't plan on buying any of them since we were going to have her picture taken by my friend. However, our plans fell through for her 2 week old pictures and they never happened. So, I thought that it was lucky that we had the hospital take pictures. We went to purchase them, but we ran out of luck, they only posted them for 2 weeks and that's it (this was about 2 months later). I was heartbroken! I couldn't believe that I hadn't gotten any pictures of Alex as a newborn. I didn't think much of it for a while until I got a belated email saying that the photography studio that took her hospital pictures were having one last sale which ended the day that I got the email (I had gotten it earlier, but it was on an email account that I hardly ever use). I hurried and retrieved my password so that I could view the pictures and I purchased them there and then so that I wouldn't miss my opportunity again. I am so grateful that I was given one last chance to get Alex's pictures so that we can marvel how small she was forever! Here are some of the pictures and I can't believe how small she was!! Enjoy:

Photoshoot with Alex

Today I did an impromptu photo shoot with Alex and it was a lot of fun. I did some super close ups and some of them turned out quite cute. What do you think?

Flying High

One of the many things that I like about my house, is that during warm weather, our backyard is taken over by tons of aerial enthusiasts. It is so fun to sit and watch them soar above us and apparently our neighborhood has one of the bests locations to hang-glide. So cool, I had no idea!

Sunset Photoshoot

Yesterday, my younger brother Thomas and I went on a shooting spree...a photo shooting spree! He found some cool places to take our pictures while we waited for the sun to set. We were hoping to get some awesome photos of the sunset but the clouds decided that they didn't want us to see the sun so, we didn't get too many pictures of what we actually set out to capture, but we had fun anyway. Here are my favorite pictures:

The one sunset picture I managed to capture

This one is my favorite of Thomas

Chris is 28!!

This past Thursday was Chris' 28th birthday! I kept urging him to open one present before his birthday but he wouldn't budge. He insisted on waiting for his actual birthday (I get super excited about birthday's and I can't wait to see the presents). In the morning, we got up and Chris opened his presents with the help of Alex and Gir. I made breakfast and we enjoyed just hanging out while Chris was having fun with his gifts. We watched a movie that Chris got and ate lunch while Alex took a nap and then we went to Sears so that Chris could spend some birthday money. He got some tools and we had fun walking around the mall. We also went to the Aquarium store so that we could get items for our new fish tank (pictures to come when we actually have fish). When we got home I made dinner and got dessert ready. The food was good but the company was better. After dinner, we Skyped with Grandma and Grandpa Miller and little Alex loved talking to them and letting them know how she was doing. We then had dessert and relaxed for the rest of the day. Hopefully, 28 has been good to Chris so far.

Thanksgiving Point Tulip Festival

Today we went to the Annual Tulip Festival at the Thanksgiving Point Gardens. We've gone every year for the past couple of years and we love looking at and taking pictures of the beautiful flowers. This year, we had lunch at the Garden's Cafe (which was soo good) and then we went exploring. The weather was slightly cool and a little windy but it felt nice while we were walking around. Little Alex liked trying to pick the flowers if she got close enough and sitting on Daddy's shoulders. Mommy enjoyed taking pictures and hanging out with the family! It took us about an hour to navigate through the various gardens and it was a good thing that we left when we did because it started to rain! It was a lot of fun and I think that we'll enjoy going again next year. Here are some of the pictures from today:
