Ghetto Thanksgiving

A few shots from today...and a funny story!

We were bored this afternoon. Seriously...who doesn't eat turkey until after 6pm? We aren't the Vanderbilt's for goodness sake!

So, we had an impromptu photo shoot. The above photos were the result.

Babygirl and I were discussing our upcoming trip to NYC to see the Rockettes, visit the American girl store for tea, carriage ride in central park, lunch at the top of Bergdorf's, etc. Babyboy was a bit put out that he was not invited. I said it was a girls' trip and he responded "well then why does Uncle Aaron get to go?"

Babygirl responded "because Uncle Aaron is ghetto?" like it was the most obvious thing in the world. Then I had to interject and say "ummm, you mean Uncle Aaron is GAY?" Yeah, she says, Uncle Aaron is gay with his friend Eric. "No", I respond, "Uncle Aaron is ghetto with his friend Eric. He's GAY with his friend Tobin"...

At which time I realize that my kids will either be the most culturally accepting and advanced kids on the block...or they'll be the most messed up confused kids around! Either way...I'm up for it!

What are you thankful for today?

New Beginnings!

Sorry for the tardy post. I've been busy with the Junior League bazaar fundraiser, kids school parties, moving, etc. I've also been trying to transition one of my passions into a growing "career". I've always loved photography and have taken photos of friends' kids forever. This year, I've been taking "sessions" and have sent all of my clients to Tiny Prints' website to view Tiny Prints 2009 Holiday Cards. They are awesome!

Here is what I chose for my card...

I love that it's neutral, classic and highlights the photo rather than a flashy card. That's what they're so great about ...they produce great cards that will enhance your photos.

Some other great samples...

Have you started your cards yet? If not, get to Tiny Prints now! They have GREAT deals and as an amateur photographer I can say that their reprints are very high quality and you won't be disappointed!

Happy shopping!
