Quote of the month...

"Standing tall is a very admirable thing. There are very few stories in history of heroes who slouched to the rescue. Likewise, most individuals don't look up to people who are drooped over."

Foto Story Friday #67 --my girls

Because no matter how you add it up 6 times even the cheapest package is too expensive! And because I really do want to get better at this photography thing, I took my kids out for a little photo shoot. I had a great place in mind and I wanted to go in the early evening..... but time moves faster than 7 people, we arrived a bit later than I wanted.... As it is I give you my daughters:
EmmaLece the youngest, but very strong willed.

Savanna determined and in charge!

Shantel finding her niche.
Each beautiful in their own ways.

Foto Story Friday #66 -- a wedding photo

Sunday evening Troy and I went to the wedding of 2 of his co-workers. It was a nice ceremony, not long and drawn out. The bride was beautiful in her gown and the groom handsome in his tux. I will not be posting their pictures as I don't have their permission. But I will post this fun picture:

When the "I dos" were over and they were announced as Mr and Mrs, one of the groomsmen and fellow co-worker, dashed over with a set of handcuffs and slapped them on. As they walked back down the aisle I snapped this shot of their hands. I think I'll call it "Doin' Time" or maybe "Doin' Life"
