Merry Christmas

Oh yes, we did. Chris & I got Dad an inflatable Christmas Story leg lamp. He put it up that morning.

Behind the Scenes

Just to give everyone an idea of what Candi was working with...yeah, not much. Pretty amazing what she can do with an old Oklahoma, wintery-dead field:

What a little trooper! Someday it will be your turn...(sorry mom & dad, it's true.)

The transit was pretty hilarious:
And if I could have dressed and accessorized myself for the wedding just as I wanted, it probably would have ended up something like this:

Well, 29 was such a great year, I think I'll just do it over again! Tonight (read Senior Citizen hour) my family and friends gathered at Pearl's for a birthday party for Yours Truly. It really might have been the best family, my dearest most favorite friends and my husband :)
(yeah, it's still weird to say that...)

"Hazel, everyone knows you can't have a party without an inflatable!"

Hazel and "Boom"

After dinner, Chris took me for another birthday tradition, Christmas Lights! When your birthday is in December, sometimes you feel like all the celebrations are part of your party ;)

Thanks to everyone for all the birthday wishes and phone calls!

The Godmother, Part I

Bridal Shoot

I wanted to wait until after the wedding to do a bridal portrait session so I wouldn't have to worry about getting my dress dirty or re-pressed (and my dress wasn't ready until two days before the wedding!) So on Saturday I got to spend more time with my favorite photographer and newest friend Candi. I'm going to miss getting to see her every week...
Candi's inspiration and the theme for the shoot was "Alice in Wonderland"; because Candi wanted to get some edgier, fashion shots to update her website, Mindy joined us and wore Candi's wedding dress to take some pictures. Fabulous MOB really came through with some beautiful bouquets and great props for us to use.

The Return of the Red Shoes!

I am so pleased with how they turned out and had such a fun afternoon. I keep wanting to add one more...and just one more...and then be sure to go to Candi's blog for more:
