Pre-Holiday Update


OK, so these are not our dogs but we are thinking about getting one so I thought I'd put this up here for some reason. These are the Hudkins pups. The wedding last Saturday went great, Paul and Adam did a great job picking up my slack, here's a shot of Adam's that's at the same moment as Paul's. Also, here's a shot of Erin that is a representation of a specific Rolling Stones song, can you guess which one?
Also, we saw Santa and his reindeer and he wanted to know if Alec was a prince or something with his cape...he said, "No, I'm Batman," to which St. Nick replies, "Oh, well Batman is a prince too isn't he? Don't they call him the Prince of Darkness?" And I didn't want to tell the jolly old soul but no, Batman isn't the Prince of Darkness, that'd be Satan. Batman is the "Dark Knight". You'd think after all these years he'd know something like that. He needs to get that figured out quick.
Of course maybe he was commenting on Alec's behavior or something. Hmmm.....

December with one leg

Well, I guess life goes on when you only have one leg to use afterall. We had a "whole mess' a" hyper little girls over for the slumber party and I'll be honest, Hanna Montana is getting just a little overplayed for my taste in this house. I did a shoot for Positronic's Christmas party that was 50's themed and I didn't crash or anything. We went to Ohio for Thanksgiving and they have these amazing trees that they train to only drop leaves on decks and never in the grass. This one is still learning. The cats are busy frantically doing nothing....well, nothing but eating and pooping and sleeping, but soon they'll be passing ribbons and bows through their nifty little digestive system and it's always kind of funny to see a cat with multiple tails. That's all for now, but I've got some other stuff to show you later...oooooo cliff-hanger ending!!

Surgery, Skeletons, Signs, Superman, Soccer

Although I don't really remember it, my achillies tendon surgery went well.


Also, our friends Angie and Kyle had their third son, Quinlan.





We had a kitty and a skeleton for Haloween.






My boy is getting really great at setting his toys up in amazing action poses, I think he'll have a great future as a manaquin stylist.
Brookline Church now has it's own gang sign.
And we're now done with soccer. Ave had one goal this year and she had one head shot when she wasn't looking, and she drank a bunch of capri sun and danced around. That's pretty much what sports is all about until you turn 21 anyway. Or 18 if you live in Canada. And yes, that's the Percaset talking as usual so you can't get mad at me.

We don't need no stinking stretches!!

Make sure you stretch before you play basketball. I’ve got a nice little tear in my Achilles tendon. It hurts a little but not as much as I thought it would. Hydrocodene helps but it makes me sleepy and kind of stupid. No comments needed for that one. We had our church campout on Saturday and that’s where it happened. It sounds like driving will be a no-no for a while. I’m also missing my photography convention in Eureka Springs because of it. That really stinks. I was wanting to figure out this whole lens cap thing. (I had a photo of Mr. Pitt portraying Achilles in that Troy movie as a joke but I had to remove it for copyright infringement)
I can tell my sentences are too short and sound like they are written by a chimp so, to make you think I’m smart, here’s some boring facts about the Achilles Tendon: The calcaneal (or Achilles) tendon is the thickest and strongest in the human body and is about 15 cm in length. This tendon connects the calf muscle to the heel bone. It puts a spring in the step and helps one to stand on tiptoe. Unlike the other tendons in the body, though, it has no protective covering and is therefore very vulnerable to inflammation and injury. Even shoes which don't fit correctly can inflame or tear the tendon. The Greek warrior, Achilles, was the son of a sea goddess and of a mortal father. When he was a baby, his mother tried to make him immortal by dipping him in the River Styx. She held him by his heel, which never touched the water, becoming his only vulnerable spot. Years later, he died in the Trojan War when his enemy shot him in the heel with an arrow.
Wow. Who knew, right?

Cabin 7

All 9 of the cabins at Rock Village Court are great but I like cabin 7 best for some reason. I think it’s the back porch with the green tree canopies and everything. Anyway, everyone should definitely make a trip out and stay a night or two and get some sanity. The fishing is great and the wiffle ball isn’t bad either.

Catching up


video






So a lot of people have asked me why I havn't posted in forever and here's the deal. I don't feel great about making time to post to my blog when I've got brides waiting for their albums and churches waiting for their directories and a wife waiting for the lawn to be mowed. But I'm getting caught up so I should be back on track with this. At least until next summer. Here's some things that I've seen lately.

August....let me catch my breath


























Time has flown, but it's been a great summer, I've been extremely busy and behind schedule but it's been fun. So here we may or may not have shots of us swimming with sharks, purchasing a ballpark, getting disguised for bank robberies, subliminally advertising for alcohol, and going to church. Also, in 13 of these shots, someone farted. See if you can guess who.
