{Almost 8}

We had Carson's birthday party this last weekend...Mario & Luigi style!

Complete with pizza...(Mario and Luigi are Italian after all...)

And Mario/Luigi mustaches!

Carson's first swing at the Pinata...

Make that the first and only swing of the day....

Presents (aka who can get closest to the birthday boy).

Cupcakes! (My first attempt at fondant).

Little Ry liked 'em!

Thanks to my sister, Reese, who came down on her birthday to celebrate with Carson!  Happy Birthday Reese!

And then a night out on the town with just mom and dad!  Dinner at Ruby Tuesdays.

And Avatar in 3D!

His official birthday is tomorrow...more fun to come! Being 8 is a big deal!  Major things happening around here.

Why I {Blog}

My little blog is a family journal. I include things on here I want to remember years and years from now. So when I post a zillion is because I want to have it for my posterity. So please forgive the often posted-picture overload.

Currently I am trying to focus on my photography skills...reading, reading, reading, and taking pictures when I can. Then edit, read, read, read some more. I finally feel like I have a basic understanding of exposure...hooray! I updated my blog template so I can display larger photos because...aren't pictures better than anything I have to say anyway?

More about me here.
