Today I am thankful that I mailed out my Christmas cards!!! Yippppppeeee. This means, I expect to start receiving them in the mail asap. My friend Kate gets first place because I got hers today! It is super cute. I had to completely redo my address list because it was on a really old computer and I can't get it off. I know I am missing addresses for some bloggy friends, so if we normally exchange cards, email me!! I really can't even begin to explain how much I love Christmas cards. The mail in December is just the best!!

So, after today I officially only have one more month of daily posting. CRAZY! In order to make December a little more fun and not so boring for me, I wanted to let you guys ask me any questions that you might have that I have not addressed. I am terrible about answering questions in the comments because I simply forget about them. I have done this before and it is fun, but it will make writing my final posts of the year a little more fun for me. So, ask away. I will obviously not be answering any questions that I don't feel comfortable with the whole world knowing the answer to. I will try and step up my pictures a bit and not just do jammy pictures right before bed!! :)

I found out today that Justin and I get to go to Vegas for 2 nights next week!! I am sooooooooo excited because I absolutely love Vegas. I am very lucky at the casinos!! June is coming to take care of the girls and we are so thankful that she could do it. This will be Justin and I's Christmas to one another. I really can't wait.

Annie was in a funk all day today. She had a rough night last night so hopefully she will have a good night and better day tomorrow. She wore me out today.

Yay. I love it when bloggers ask for questions from their readers. I've been wondering if you and Justin plan to have more children (bio or adopted). I know you come from a family with lots of sisters and wonder if you also want that for your girls.

I love all of your photos, whether the girls are in their jammies or something more "formal."

Good luck in Vegas!

Me too, love all of your pics. Any chance you will be in Los Angeles? About the questions, how and when did you and Justin meet? Have a fantastic time in Vegas. I can never get bored of LV.

Mom said...

Annie is just obviously missing her Lee! I, too, got Kate's card! Darling! And yea for Christmas cards! I was shoveling out the house today, and made some progress, but lots to do. I think that every bed I own needs to be changed. Thanksgiving was awesome, but we sure missed you guys. Hugs and kisses to all, LeeLee

Kate said...

well well well!!!!! i feel soooo special being a firstie! :) this makes up for all the spanish tests you beat me at....even though that never bothered me because i knew that i could beat you at "8 Seconds" movie lines any old day.
i have never gotten them out this early but thanks to my special little photog friend they were ready to go! i had no idea the kind of press i was going to get!haha!:)
i have a bunch of questions for you...i'll start with one...
why is that frame i got you a long time ago always on the floor of your bedroom in the background of pics???? i haven't noticed it lately so i'm guessing you regifted it to someone...hahahahaha

Lisa said...

My questions are about your photography. What kind of camera do you use and what are your favorite lenses for different situations? Are you self-taught or how did you learn your craft? You obviously also have a gift for what you do! You've inspired me to try to take better photos! If you could give a photo enthusiast one tip (besides "take lots of pictures" because I already do that), what would it be? Thanks!

Um, that last picture- ouch! Going on a little trip with hubby and no kids sounds great, no matter the destination. Hope you have a great time!

Are you still thinking of moving? I'm not sure we ever heard what happened with your house? You've talked a lot about your girls clothes but what are your favorite places to shop? I love all your pictures and it keeps me inspired to take pics of my own boys.

jacqueline said...

SWEET!!! Christmas cards in the mail - I'm SO excited it's that time of year. It was all I could do not to skip out to the mailbox today even though I know it's still a bit early. I just love to see my Christmas tree get filled up with them! It's all up and has the basic decorations but is and just waiting for the cards. I know I need to be patient but it's hard. Guess I can't get onto anyone because I ordered mine late so I guess they won't be in the mail for at least two weeks.

How much fun that you guys are going to Vegas?! That will be awesome. I hope you guys win big! You always are really lucky at the tables - I think it's because you're so darn smart you probably count cards or one of those other tricks of professional gamblers.

good job girl! I haven't placed my order yet. Maybe tomorrow. Can't wait to see yours!

I'm trying to think of a good question but everyone has already taken mine! I, too, want to know how you and J met. When is the next baby announcement? And what is going on with your house? What lens are you using most of the time these days (I think I know the answer to this but have meant to write you directly to ask anyway) and what area do you feel like you've grown the most in the last year (when it comes to photography and also life in general)?

Also more video please! I miss hearing Lucy's voice! If she likes to talk on the phone she can call Addy any time. Addy's already addicted (sigh).

Nicki said...

Oh and good luck in Vegas! That is an AWESOME Christmas present!

Norah said...

Have fun in Vegas ! I turned down a trip to Vegas (Hubby could have went for work) because I couldn't leave M yet. Sigh... I'll live through your trip! Take lots of pics if you get the chance and WIN BIG!

Kristen said...

These pictures are inspiring my question... are you putting Lucy in a gymnastics class? She's in dance, right?

Love all your pics, jammies or otherwise! :)

KrisJ said...

I gotta say I hate that your year of blogging is coming to an end, it is how I finish my day, I get on my blog and go visit everyone who has posted, its been a nice way to calm down and get ready for some sleep!! I cant believe youve been able to keep up you are amazing!! Have fun if Vegas I have only been there when I was a teen and it was not very much fun!

Seashy said...

Kel,

Lucky about Vegas! I am so jealous. I know you won't, but will you TRY to take pictures there? They would be so cool!

Can't wait to get my Christmas card!!!!! I am curious to see what pictures you ended up using...

Heather said...

I am just desperate to know what lens you use. I am just completing my first photography course and your Blog gives me such wonderful, creative ideas. So, won't you please share? Thanks.

Kelli said...

ooohhh, have fun in Vegas!

I still have your address- hopefully my cards (with return address- hint, hint) will go out soon!

Elaine said...

Thank you for sharing your girls with everyone. Well, their pictures and what they have been doing. They are absolutely adorable. My little Lucy is so limber. That last picture makes my legs hurt, well, in fact my whole body.
