{13 Days Until Christmas: Basketball Season is Over}

It was short season...about 3 weeks...but I have to hand it to the school district for hosting and organizing it anyway.  Carson's school had the most participants of any grade at any school, so luckily they split the team in two.  That way they each player got to play about 2-3 quarters for each game instead of 1-2!  Carson loves it.  He isn't the most aggressive on the court, but he really understands the game now and took and made some shots (I may or may not have teared up about this...).  He is excellent on defense too.  It is fun to watch him understand double dribble, traveling, pivot foot, etc....I mean I hardly understand the stuff!  We have a major cheering section.  Trevor loves this stuff more than Carson I think.  He's so good with him too...never negative (you should hear some of the parents?!!)...just positive energy all around for our little b-ball player! 

And had to stick these pictures in of Carson's gingerbread man that he decorated at cub scouts. 
 Doesn't this look appetizing??!  Man, this has cub scouts written all over it.

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?
