"I lost mine..."




The spirit of the Holiday brings tradition, and with tradtition comes nastalgia. To celebrate the wonderful time of Christmas and the memories we hold so dear, I give you A Claymation Christmas, Carol of the Bells:

Gene's, Heredities and Such

So it's understood that people think we are "pretty" but it is important to know where we came from. In a search for specific photo's, I was lucky enough to come across HUNDREDS of little gems. Firstly, my Grandma Bonnie.

I can only hope that when I turn gray I can do it gracefully, and still look as gorgeous as she did. She always had the same smile that really defines her. Really it's hard to find many pictures of her because she is usually the one taking them.

Then there is my mom-

I could post a picture of what I looked like when I was 14, but I will spare you all, and you can just use your imaginations. But this is simply described as ADORABLE. I truly am jealous of how cute she was in 1966 and wish I could achieve the same look with a bandanna.

Now there are other pieces that put us together, and sometimes we wonder how it all worked out. But I do know where we all got our sexy legs.

Now the explainiation for why Tom is wearing a really snazzy blazer over his super nice button-up without slacks, is simple. It was July, and very hot in Payson. Knowing full well that he was going to be posing for a picture that was going to be taken from the waist up, he kept himself cool by wearing his very fashionable shorts, and knew full well that no one would know the difference.

Thus- Carter, Laura and I, were created by only the cutest of folk.

For those "Artistic" folk..

I created a secondary blog for my photography. My Holga pic's are stackin up and I need SOMEWHERE to put them. So those of you who are interested in more than Jack's daily, reckless antics, go to www.lisaphotog.blogspot.com.

I hope it isn't a waste of cyber space..

Pretty Things


I've tried my hardest to read up on photography and "learn" new things and "try techniques" but honestly, nothing really works until I pull a camera out and start taking pictures. It's all in what is around you and how you capture it.
This is taken with a digital, but I imagine it would look even better with an SLR.
But it still creates the kind of beauty that it expressed in person. It is incredible how pictures can show some much detail, and provide you with a moment caught in time.
I would still like to try and do some actual studying on the subject of photography, even though I'd rather just continue to learn hands on. But it is hard to find literature that isn't too hard to understand, or too obvious. If anyone has any suggestions, please, share.

Make Mama Proud

Jack has taken it upon himself to practice...though we have in fact bought a training potty for him, he prefers to rehearse on the big boy potty.
