Not Gone Yet

I'm planning on closing down this blog and am in the process of creating a new one. Having a few problems with the format and look of the new one. As soon as it's up and running I'll put a link here to it so you won't get lost.

Thanks for the vote of confidence.

Favorite Pictures

I love taking pictures and with the advent of digital photography I find I take way, way more than I need. I don't let an occasion, event, baby, grandchild, bird, flower, etc. go by without taking a picture of it. The biggest reason I carry a purse is so that I have someplace to keep my small camera. I've taken a lot of pictures so far this year that haven't made it into print for scrapbooking nor have they been posted here - I think. This blog entry will be a quick review of my favorite pictures of the past few months...in no particular order.

Frosted tulips - May 2010 - Edmonton, AB

Anson and Brooklyn - I didn't take this one but I love pictures of Rob's kids together.

Baby Tate Update

Amy and Curtis's son Tate was born prematurely on May 14.

Now, three weeks later, he's home and doing fine. He doesn't do much yet other than eat and sleep but he's gaining weight and growing and is just as sweet as can be. I had him with me for a sleep-over on Friday night (his parents needed a night of uninterrupted sleep) and during his stay we had a brief photo shoot.

Yesterday Emily and I spent the day together working on our scrapbooking. During the course of the day I completed two layouts of Baby Tate.
