Halloween Murder Mystery Party

My family has a tradition every Halloween that we do a Murder Mystery Game. It has been so much fun to do something different and fun for Halloween.

We had to work around everyones work schedule this year, and the only time that worked was Saturday at 12 noon. So when I took pictures it was VERY bright! What made it even harder was that almost everyone had white face makeup on so it made the faces white out a little.

For food....we did Fondue! We had a cheese appetizer with different kinds of bread. Then We had the main course and we had two different dips for the chicken, beef, shrimp, mushrooms, carrots, broccoli, and cauliflower. One was a little spicy and the other a little more mild. Then of course of dessert we had chocolate Fondue. We dipped in apples, bananas, strawberries, pretzels, and angel food cake.

Enjoy the pictures!!!

I would definitely suggest trying a Murder Mystery Game...It is soooooooooo much fun!

Pregnant + Puppy love

Well I'm still here! I recently found out that I am pregnant and I have been not feeling up to much of anything. I have been so tired! Sometimes I wonder if I will ever have energy again...but I know I will :)
Mean while I have been taking some pictures...

My sister has the BIGGEST heart for animals. She has one HUGE dog and while she was at school one day one of the girls asked if anyone wanted a pit bull puppy only 8 weeks old. Well my sister had been looking up pit bull puppies lately and she fell in love with them so of course she would say yes! But my sister is living with her mother-in-law and so she knew she couldn't. Well the girl said that she was going to take the puppy to the dog pound that night if no one would take it. My sister couldn't believe it. So she said she would take it and find a home for it. Well it was taking a few days for them to find a home for this little Roxy girl. She tried to not fall in love but this little dog stole her heart! My sister had a hart time finding her a home. She didn't want just anyone to have her. She wanted her to go to a home that would lover her as much as she does or would love her more. Well then ended up finding a very good home for her. A man that rescues pit bulls and already had 2 of his own.

 Look at those big paws!

One day my sister will get her own house and will get a little puppy all her own :)

Today I brought my hallway mirror outside and had my little guy stand on it and look in it. It was so funny. He was making all of his silly faces. I could never catch them before, but it was perfect because he just looked at himself in the mirror and went to town. Here are my favorites.

Books/Kid Photographer

         "Boooook" My little guy will say. He loves books. I wanted to take some pictures with him and some (we have lots!) of our books. It took me a while to finally get him to sit on top of them. When I finally got the picture and was taking the books back to his room he started crying and bringing the books back out into our Living room.
          I am so glad that he likes books already. My husband and I love to read and we love reading together. We can't wait until he is a little older so he learns to sit still for longer then 2 seconds; we will then really be able start reading to him.

MacBook Pro + Photoshop Elements 9 + Photoshop class

I was expecting it to come Friday...I was so excited I could hardly wait. I was constantly looking out the front window to see if the package had arrived, but it hadn't. I called my husband "Sorry to bother you at work, but was it coming Fedex or UPS?" He said he would look it up and call me back. Then the sad news came...the shipping got delayed because our credit card company wanted to make sure it was really from us. "It will come Wednesday." I said I was fine but I was bummed!

Then fast forward to Tuesday. (Just a side was not FAST. It was SLOW forward) The door bell rang, so I answered and guess what?! Yep! My laptop was here finally!!! And one day earlier then was expecting (after the first time of course). I was so excited I opened it up and immediately started to get know my knew buddy!

This is the first time I have owned a Mac laptop. So I am still getting use to it :) but so far am l-o-v-i-n-g LOVING it!

I just bought Photoshop Elements 9 and i have started a class to learn how to use it, and i am getting so much out of it! Here are some pictures i have done.

My little sister has started playing the guitar and so I thought it would be fun to take her pictures with it.

I liked so many of her pictures, but i just picked the poses that were different to put up. Hope you enjoy!
