{Soccer, Babies, and Snow}

I am still in blogging catch-up mode. 

Up first...Soccer! 
I have no idea how I survived 4 practices and 2 games a week for 2+ months this fall.  Carson's practice was 30-40 minutes away, and it was a killer.  Being sick and being in the car so much doesn't work so well together.  But we made it...all of us.  The kids did fantastic and really improved over last year.  But man alive, I am glad it is over.

 Carson is jersey #2.

And secondly....babies! 
We were blessed with an adorable new niece in Chicago (my sister, Camille) on October 29th, followed by my new nephew in Vancouver, WA (my brother, Bryce) on October 30th.  My sister and sister-in-law were due about a month a part...but were literally in labor at the same time!  Oh the text messages and phone calls on the 29th and 30th were pretty dang exciting!!!

Claire Warning (picture stolen from my sister's blog).  We aren't quite sure when we get to snuggle this cute little one...but we hope it is sometime soon!! Isn't she a doll?

And Jett Robert.  We got to meet him in the hospital on Halloween!  He was just shy of 1 day old and so tiny and precious!! 

We went down to Vancouver again about a week later to spend more time with the little guy and have a pre-thanksgiving dinner with my parents and sister who came to see the new addition too.

And finally....SNOW!
We were surprised and delighted by snow the week of Thanksgiving!  The kids had 2 and half 'snow days' and only went to school for a few hours on Monday before the rest of the week was cancelled.  We soaked up the extra at-home time, watched movies, stayed in our pjs, and drank hot chocolate and home-made cider. 

 No hills in our yard, so the kids improvised.

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 pictures...it 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?
