November already!!!

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

Wow- I just can not believe how fast this year is going! In just a few short weeks I will be putting up my Christmas decorations! Unbelievable!!! Maybe its because I wish the week away so that the weekend will come faster!?! A week from Friday a friend and I are going Christmas shopping in Aurora. I can't wait. I love the outlet mall there. I am really hoping to get a bunch of my shopping done then. Each year I drag it out more and more. I just have such a hard time figuring out what to get everyone! (did you hear that Dottie??? I need a list for your family within the week. LOL) Speaking of the holiday season, I discovered a link a while ago to a photographer that is starting something where photographers all over the world are going to take peoples pictures on December 12 - people who can not afford to have portraits taken. The photographers will be doing this for free. Here is a link: Help-Portrait.com. If you have a minute - watch the video on the site. It literally brought tears to my eyes. So cool. Having really gotten into photography and realizing how much a picture can give a person joy, I think this is such a wonderful idea. If I had more experience I would certainly do it. I would love to help someone in my area but last I checked there were only 2 people even signed up for here. Thats sad, really. This reminds me of the NILMDTS. This stands for Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep. It is an organization where volunteers go to hospitals and take pictures of babies who won't get to come home. If I thought I could do this emotionally I would love to do it. I am just not sure I could do it without falling apart. I think it is a wonderful thing though for them to go and take pictures of those little babies - it would be the only professional photo that the parents would have. Such a wonderful thing to do.

Anyway - hope everyone is having a great month so far! I need to get going and get some things done before the day is over. Since I always do - here are a few pictures to share with you.

Here are a few of Lexi:


And I went to the zoo here in town - the only thing worth seeing were the monkeys. LOL Here is one who thought he was Blane Wilson, doing his gymnastics routine LOL:

Talk to you soon!
