I'm Home!

Chapps and I drove to Pensacola early this morning.
Bloggo, please forgive me for my absence.
Hopefully I'll find some time to blog now that I'm home and there are two willing aunts and one extra willing Mimi to help me.
We'll see.
I have a lot going on this week... I'm photographing a great friend's newborn baby, I have a shoot for Smith, Chappell's Christmas card photo, Parent's card photo... the list goes on and on and on and on... I won't bore you anymore.

Here are a few pictures I took this weekend... I'll upload more later... However, I've learned that high res photos take forever to upload on to Flickr... so, I'm doing it less and less.


There are many more... I've had lots of babies lately!
Happy Turkey Day!
Ahhhhh, hopefully I'll be back soon. Lots to record...

Coffee: Recession Style

Until about six months ago, I was frequenting Starbucks almost
At five bucks a pop, that's around $150 a month!
I think Reed got a little fed up with my overpriced coffee habit...
Then one day, this baby showed up in my kitchen:

I cannot tell you how much money I've (we've) saved.
It costs around 30 dollars for 80 K Cups at Sams or Costco. I'm sure you can find an even better deal online.
I think the machine costs around $109.
You do the math!
Add this to your coffee and it tastes just like Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte.

My lil' Punkin

I wish I could freeze Chappell right now.
I think I've said that every month... of her entire life (well, maybe not when she was getting up each and every hour, on the hour),
I really mean it now.
She is just so precious and adorable and says the funniest things.
It is amazing how much she understands now. She hears and catches everything you say-- so watch out if you come over to our house.
It's just crazy and unbelievable to me... she can count (!) to around 12, say a lot of the alphabet, knows colors, about a zillion animals and sounds... all of her body parts. And that's just the beginning!

She cracks me up. Non-stop. The kid is hilarious.

This morning I told her I was going to the kitchen to make breakfast. She looked at me and said, "I no hungee, mama. No hungee. No hungee."
You probably had to be there...

Last night, I gave her some white cheddar puffs for a little snack before dinner. When she didn't think I was looking I saw her push a few of the puffs off of the table and on to the floor.
She then comes to tell me that she had some "taaash" (very urgently, btw) that she needed to put in the "taaash."
So, one by one, each puff was taken to the trash can. After touching the "taaash," Chaps asked me to wash her "hannnns" in the "ink."
Ohhhh I love that child.

I don't think I've posted since Halloween?
I guess it's been a while?

My best friend from college got married here in Montgomery on Halloween weekend.
Her wedding was FABULOUS!
I cannot wait until her pictures are ready-- since I wanted to fully celebrate her big day, I decided against lugging my camera to the reception.
So.. sadly, that means no pictures to share.
We had the best time.
My mom came up for the weekend to help us take care of Chappell since we had a house full of guests and I was busy with wedding events.
Needless to say, we were a little "tired" on Sunday.
So, Chappell dressed in her costume for a little while and answered the door for trick or treaters.
Next year, we've vowed to step up our Halloween night a little bit.
I'm not feeling too guilty after a month of celebrating Halloween.

Here's our little elephant:
These pictures will also serve as a my reminder to never ever shoot in JPEG again...
