Holiday Family Photos

Holiday Family Photos

We try to get family photos a couple times each year to really capture the growing boys and important moments in our family. Holiday photos have become sort of a new tradition for us since having kiddos so that we can have a new set of image for our holiday cards. Last year Macey Snelson Photography joined us as we picked our Christmas tree out. This year we decided a trip out to Mt. Hood to play in the snow was in order. What I didn’t realize is that both my husband and I wore the SAME SHIRTS two years in a row. HA!

Even with the same shirts on two years in a row we managed to get completely different images and really wonderful memories from Macey Snelson Photography. Here are some of my favs:

At the end of the session Macey also snagged a couple of new headshots of me for the holiday season. Snow made them magical.

Sunday Snapshots: Halloween Party Prep

Sunday Snapshots: Halloween Party Prep

This weekend I had some much needed down time. Last week was insane at work and I couldn’t seem to get a moment to work on anything blog related much less see my kiddos. In the midst of the errand running and general hanging out with the family that I did, I also got to spend a couple of hours prepping for Halloween. Our comic book themed Halloween party is starting to come together! (Now that my Felicity Smoak costume is complete I’m moving on to party decorations.)

My week/weekend in snapshots:

I had to add in this photo because it is just too fun. Our work had our yearly conference this year in which I take a big part in putting together. We always go ALL OUT with our theme and this year’s theme was Rock and Roll. I pretty much want purple hair and a tattoo sleeve now.

The party prep has involved cutting up a lot of old comic books I found while thrifting. We used the comic books to decorate tags, cups, juices, and more.

The biggest project I tackled this weekend was creating LARGE paintings of comic characters. I utilized a projector to help guide the paintings. I first drew the outline and then painted in the large sections of color and then finished the details. My son even got in on the painting!

I got a lot done this weekend, but I still have lots more to do to be ready for this next weekend.

 

Are you ready for Halloween? If so, what are you planning on doing for the holiday?

Sunday Snapshots: Pumpkin Patch, Apple Tasting, and Mud Runs

October never, ever fails to be my busiest month of the year. Even December’s crazy schedule doesn’t quite come close to the amount of things packed into October. After two weeks of traveling for work I am starting to finally catch up with things like housework, meal planning, and blog posts. Of course, my next two weeks of work promise to be even crazier… so, hopefully I don’t lose ground on all the other projects in the works.

Onto the fun stuff… every October we have four MUST DO events each year. We go to the pumpkin patch. We attend the Portland Apple Festival. We have a craft night to prep for our annual Halloween party and then we have our annual Halloween party.

Last weekend we got to enjoy the pumpkin patch with friends. This weekend we painted the pumpkins to get them ready for our comic book themed Halloween party.
