What I Saw From Behind the Lens

For my birthday my dad spoiled me - ROTTEN! Seriously, it was completely unexpected and totally made my day. First he took me to Camera Gallery in Tulsa and bought me a new Tamron 28-75mm 2.8 lens along with filter, diffuser and remote flash. Then he bought me a Keurig with a whole bunch of coffees, teas, cocoa and cider. Yep, I'm pretty sure he loves me. ;)

But, I'm not here to brag about my gifts. I really wanted to show you the pictures that were taken with my new lens. Some of the pictures I took myself with it and some my brother-in-law took with it. My husband's family was here over Christmas break and we went out took some family photos. I cherish family photos as I know they will tell our story long, long after we are gone.

(Which she overheard her Pepa say!) 

I really wanted to post our Christmas card, but I'm going to have to scan it first! I guess I'll have to do that soon. You know, like before next Christmas. Ha!

Lastly, it's hard to believe but I'm now a mom to a 14 year old! Where, oh where has the time gone?

How can this be that same little girl?! 
Happy birthday, baby!
