"Anyone who imagines that bliss is normal- is going to waste a lot of time running around shouting that he has been robbed. The fact is that most putts don't drop, most beef is tough, most children grow up to be just people, most successful marriages require a high degree of mutual toleration, and most jobs are more often dull than otherwise. Life is just like an old time rail journey with delays, sidetracks, smoke, dust, cinder, and jolts, interspersed occasionally by beautiful vistas and thrilling bursts of speed. The trick is to thank the Lord for letting you have the ride."---Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley
"The greatest mistake you can make in life is to be continually fearing you will make one." - Elbert Hubbard

More Christmas......

We are home now and the car is well, mostly unpacked. The presents are piled up waiting for me to find them a home and the laundry is mountainous... my desk in an overflow of papers and pens.. bills and cards. We had a blast in California... it was quick but fun. We tried to squeeze as much as possible into every moment.. We came home just in time for New Years Eve which we celebrated with friends and family and some amazing fireworks!!! Winter seems to be settling in here in metropolis and I am missing the warm California sunshine. It was beautiful out there!!! So here is the big overload of my family from California... so that I can move on to a holiday photography sale and some sneak peeks for some amazing families!!!!!

I LOVE your family picture. The little one rolling her eyes is too classic. What a great image. You look amazing. What I would give for your skin - no wrinkles/blemmishes at all!!!!! The Aussie sun has not been kind to me let me tell you! Simply gorgeous.
