it's so nice to be home with family...and to actually be in a climate that feels like winter

i have many new ones to post but my computer is full again so i need to do some cleaning up and transferring to the hard drive


so we have our T.A.C. (tacky altaer christmas) party tonight

like all good homecoming or prom knockoffs....the photo booth is a must so we decided to take a few shots of ourselves just to give the kids a little christmas inspiration

i think we accomplished what we set out to do


i have not really been able to take a lot of photos lately and so i am posting an older one that i really like...

more than likely there will be many good ones to follow in the next couple of weeks



i can't wait for it to be christmas break so that i can spend time with my family

i also can't wait to play in the snow and make igloos



finally had a chance to take some more senior photos...


light writing rocks my face off...

it's pretty crazy to watch a bunch of people wave lights around which looks like absolutely nothing, but then when you see the finished product it's incredible

there will definitely more of these and hopefully some videos but they take for ever!

more from the service project

we had a service project which was a ton of fun....especially when we brought out the leaf blower


i am anxiously awaiting christmas break to spend time w/ the family and hopefully playing in the snow



more from the youth workers conference


these are some random ones i have been waiting to put on

fun times seeing the family over break...

my niece is adorable even though i am officially known as "uncle candy"

stick fights are fun...especially when you swing them real fast and hear the dreaded swoosh noise right before it strikes ya in the back of the leg


first snow

jenica and i were SOOOO excited that we got to see the first snowfall no matter how little it actually added up to be

other than coming up for christmas, this could be the only snow we see considering it rarely gets below freezing in Georgia and we have seemed to have a very difficult time having any type of precipitation at all (which would be why we are in a drought)

NYWC (national youth workers convention)

so i realize i am way behind on these...
get ready

these are some from downtown ATL at the convention



senior pic of jacob...

i'm trying to expand my skill area and try some new things so hopefully they come out ok


so i realize this is a repeat but it's to show the unbelievable difference photoshop can make


the wife...
