Birthday Pictures
A friend of mine asked why I wasn't taking London's 3rd Birthday pictures.
This is why.... because we get a free 8x10 picture at Kiddie Kandids every Birthday until she is 10yrs. Plus we have started a tradition with her w/ "the Block", so I want to continue it until Robbie makes me a block for my own picture taking:)
Here she is #3! London loves to get her picture taken, I think she enjoys having her special time taking photos by someone besides MOM and getting tickled by the feather stick.

A Bit of This & That......
Snow, snow, snow....
Yes! Snow in Vegas!
I am sure this is all old news to you all since it happened last Wed.
My mom said we were all over the news, crazy!
This was the biggest snow fall here in Vegas since 1979! Wowsers!
We do tend to get a bit of a snow around the outskirts of the city, but never downtown, or this much!
Needless to say we Loved it!
London was so excited!

Mom was pretty excited!

Kingston was sleeping through it!

YW/YM was canceled & School the next day!

This was the beginning of the snow fall. I thought this would be all we would see. So I took a picture of it sticking on our antlers and red nose, since it wasn't sticking on the ground.

Playing In Photoshop:
I have finally made the move to photoshop! I first started in Picasa (google), then into Adobe Lightroom and now I have to say I am having a blast with Photoshop... oh my goodness if I would have known what greatness you can do with this program. I am teaching myself all of this photography stuff (with a little wee help from a mentor). I feel that I am starting to see a little progress! Hopefully I can get into some classes at the first of the year... anyhow here are a few moments of our last week in a half.

Mr Kingston
I was trying to get a good shot of his bottom tooth.

Not only has this little man been teething, his whole mouth is shooting out all sorts of teeth! I took these 5 days ago... he has since broke through two more teeth and we still have 2 working their way through. Kings is such an easy going little man.... not so much these last few weeks. Do I even complain?! Poor Baby Boy!

The Cousins:
We spent a few hours with Davids kids at the park the other day! It was Kingston's first Big boy swing ride!

This picture does not show his excitement, but he loved it! Remember he has been teething, give the boy a smiling break!


This was London's 4th time taking her picture with the same Santa at the same place.

This was Kingston's 1st.

London has never been scared of Santa! She was so excited to take him her list:

A new baby doll w/ blonde hair & a cradle

A Pink batman mask w/a cape & sword

A pink dinosaur

A princess blow dryer w/make up( what?)

A princess controller (a little game)

A Christmas Bell

She is a funny one! I just hope I can find a PINK batman mask. She truly belongs to Robbie!

Gotta take these Santa pictures for the memories!

We celebrated London's 3rd birthday yesterday with Family and Friends.
It was perfect, we took advantage of the Lied Discovery Children's Museum just down the street from us to help make this special occasion fun & active.
Plus! a huge (+) they set the party up and clean up! Supply a cake and goody bags. Whew, anything to make things easier.

Of course we had to have a little something to munch on to keep the party interesting and add to the social event. Uncle Todd really enjoyed his Turkey dogs, etc!! ;)

Kings was a little tuckered out from the busy morning prepping for the shindig.
Plus Kings is teething, he is working on his second bottom tooth. Whahoo

The one & only... the Birthday Girl

Uncle Todd hanging out with the weeee ones. He was the tattooist. In the little party bags they supplied, fake tattoos were favored. Uncle Todd placed them on half of the kiddos, they loved him!

Thank goodness for homemade goodies, the Birthday cake was not grown up approved! I left the rest, not even worth bringing home!

London & the other kids didn't seem to mind a plate full of sweetness.

Opening gifts was a circus!
It was my first time really having several children (12) come to party and wow, they love to get into the action.
They practically mobbed Londs with gift after gift.
She also had alot of help opening the gifts!
I had to clear them away several times just to get few pictures and to give London some elbow room. It was fun to see all the children get so excited over gifts that were for someone else. Cute!

All in all ,we had a great time and we are still recovering from the exhausting fun today!

Gotta love Celebrations!

Thanks everyone who came to celebrate with Little Miss London and thanks for the GREAT gifts, she is in birthday land for days to come!

Counting the days....

This is one of London's favorite things of the day... checking what is behind the door for the count down to Christmas.
Monday Night for F.H.E we went and picked our Family tree out!
Love,Love, love the aroma of a fresh, or almost fresh Christmas Trees.
I had pictures of the tree bundled on our VW, but I must have wiped them off my camera before down loading. Oops!

The Real Meaning of Christmas!
I also love nativity scenes, I want one for the bugs to play with and touch!
The good ole Christmas Tree.. It took us 2 days to decorate our small apartment.. yes we love this season and have plenty of decorations to fill it up! Very Festive!


Happy Holidays to all!

Happy Prepping for the Season!
