I usually love editing, but for this shoot the light was just a little tricky and many of my photographs did not come out as sharp as I like, which is frustrating for me.
But here are a few that I liked for one reason or the other.
Regina understands my frustration with black and white digital photography. I try, but I'm never really pleased so much with the results.
I can't believe that it's almost time for Christmas card pictures.
I always wish for a nice snow day so I can get a wintery picture for the Christmas card, but it never seems to turn out that way.

I dug out my Step Mom's family recipes book and this one caught me eye. Not only was it easy, but it noted that it was my sister's favorite, and my sister only likes the most excellent of things, so I decided that this was the thing to make and take.
You will need:
1/2 cup butter
1 package graham crackers (not the whole box)
1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup butterscotch morsels
1 can coconut (I know right? Who knew coconut even came in a can?)
1 can sweetened condensed milk.
1 9" X 13" baking dish
1 oven at 350*
And here's how you do it:
First you melt the butter in the dish.
Then crumb up the graham crackers.

Amanda likes getting her picture taken as she loves to pick out the outfits to wear.
We haven't gone out for "picture taking" for a while now, and she became just a bit Diva-ish.
We started at the log pile:
Then to the top of the hill where she had to sit to catch her breath.
She won't mention that she made me carry her half of the way.
But eventually she let me stand her over here:
Then she insisted on a picture with her pink fluffy hand muff...
... and nice fluffy hat with the pink tails:
Then she demanded that if I didn't let her take pictures of me then she was walking home.
First she told me to "look beautiful"...
Then Mama said, "OK give me back that camera."
Until I can talk her into going out another time.

So Amanda and I grab some rakes and prepare to clean out the pond.
First some ballet poses to limber up:
...and get to work.
