Christmas at Grandma & Grandpa's

We had our first Christmas gathering of the year yesterday. And this is Silas first Christmas! Last time at this year I was a little over a week from my due date with him! (but of course he decided to make us wait 2 extra weeks :) )

Yesterday we had a gathering with my Dad's parents. 

All the kids got to open a gift from Grandma and Grandpa. 


Silas got a drum! He almost always has either a pen, or stick or something in both of his hands daily and loves to bang on things so we thought this would be the perfect gift! :)









Oh look, Kerri got just what she always dreamed of..a doll :)
 (Okay, maybe it was for someone else... )







Here is a little video of Si opening his gift :)

Thanks to my sweet grandma for preparing a wonderful meal and opening their house up once again for many memories to be made!

Florida 2014

December 8th at 7:15 in the morning I hopped in the car with Joanna and her family as we headed to the airport, the roads were super icy in places so we were thankful we gave ourselves a little extra time. Excitement was high as we talked about the fact that we would be in a much warmer place in a few hours.

We arrived at the airport safely. This was not only my first time flying but also my first time at an airport. Joanna had done this a few times before so it was nice to be able to just follow her around :)


We borded on the airplane and settled in for our flight. I must say I loved flying! Probably helped I had such great company and chocolate :)



We arrived at our beautiful condo and headed out for supper and walmart soon after.

That evening we sat out on the patio enjoying the warmth (even though it was cool, it was warmer then home :) 

The next day was wedding day. I can't tell you how much fun I had shooting with this beautiful lady!

The couple (cam &sarah) got married on the beach, it was my very first time seeing the ocean and I was not let down! It was amazing!!


These two...ahhhh.... :) 

This is all of us! We all traveled down to Florida together. Cam & Sarah and their 2 kids. Mike and Maria (Maria and Sarah are sisters) and there boy chance, and Joanna and I. 


They got married just before sunset. It was beautiful!!


That evening after the wedding Madison, Joanna and I had a girls party! We went swimming, watched a movie, ate and giggled :)


The next day was our last day (Joanna and I, the rest stayed longer ) we decided to head out to the ocean once more before we had to head home that evening. 


Joanna drove us around in the car we rented. I didn't even get scared once!! :)

I was so glad we decided to go back to the ocean, it was amazing to just walk along the sea shore and watch the waves crashing. It is one of those things you have to see with your own eyes. It's impossible to capture the true beauty on camera!!

















We even got to take a picture with pelicans! :)






We were able to get some shopping in after we left the beach. Then we headed to the airport, grabbed some ice cream and waited for our flight to bring us home to our family's 





What an amazing time we had, I was so blessed to be able to take this trip with Joanna. She is such an amazing person and sister to travel with! :) as much fun as Florida was we were super excited to be back with out family's and we both agreed that next time they will be coming with us! So...are you getting married in Florida? Need some photographers?? :)
