A Nursery at Night.

One of my favorite things about our house is that we have recessed light in all of our ceilings.  In most of the rooms they are on a dimmer which allows us to adjust the lighting to suit the mood.  I especially love it in the nursery.

Low light photography is not really my forte, but the nursery in the evenings has been my favorite place to spend time with our little guy while we wait for him to make his official appearance and I want to capture a few shots of it before it's new resident arrives full time!

Baby has a mattress!  He won't need it for a while...

Where we spend our time talking most evenings

A closet full of clean clothes!
I love these color changing night lights.  We also have one in the hall.  
Baby's special book from Ms. Sara!  (Very cute, I highly recommend it) and jungle cross night light from Grandma.
See baby?  Everything's ready for you, so feel free to show up anytime!

Bobby and Heather's Wedding!

Last weekend Gavin and I were in a wedding for our friends Bobby and Heather.

As always, it was an adventure!  The night before the wedding I had almost an hour of contractions about 5-7 minutes apart... turned out to be false labor, but it was still a bit scary being 2 hours from the hospital and wondering 'is this it?'  It never felt bad enough to be it it, but I think we were both a little more nervous that we were letting on.

I was fine the next morning and we headed off for the wedding!

Sadly, I didn't get very many photos.  I was busy during the ceremony and I was a bit more tired than I anticipated during the reception and spent my time stuffing my face full of candy instead of taking pictures!

Still, I got a few I like.  I REALLY need to get some photo editing software.  I also need to stop being quite so lazy about framing my shots and adjusting my camera settings.  It's been ages since I've played with my camera and it feels like a stranger.  That needs to change quickly!!

The Bride and Groom!

These fancy people were there!

My Husband
I know he probably won't love this picture, but I like this picture of Gavin.  This was the first wedding we've attended since our wedding, and weddings are different when you are married.  I am so excited for Bobby for Heather, and at the same time, I am so excited for Gavin and me!  Several times during the wedding, I was reminded of our wedding day of our vows to each other. I am so lucky to have him by my side and I am so excited for our new adventure starting any day!!

I looked slightly like Violet from Willy Wonka, but here's a photo so you can judge for yourself!  The dress fit!!

Congratulations to Bobby and Heather!  Welcome to wedded bliss!

It was Halloween!

I'm so late in posting.  Time seems to just slip away from me!  

Laid back at our house complete with full sized candy for trick-or-treaters.  Better updates coming... maybe. :)
