Weekend Wrap up!

What an odd weekend it was! It started Friday with our 16th wedding anniversary and taking the Diva to see the Princess and the Frog! Yup, that is how we spent our evening! It was fun to take her to her first movie ever and to see all of her fun reactions to the big screen and the music in surround sound!

Saturday was Help-Portrait day and I joined photographers from all over the world in giving portraits to people who would not be able to afford them otherwise! We had a group of 5 or 6 photographers who did several events including Shop with a Cop and several nursing homes in addition to individual sessions! My favorite individual session was with a single mom and her two boys! The oldest boy is getting ready to undergo surgery in January to reconstruct his spine from other bone in his body and rods! It is a 9 hour surgery for such a little guy! He is constantly in pain and is medicated but always has a smile on his face and plays like any other young boy! Here are some shots from that session!

It was a great way to use my talents to give to others and I have some great ways to improve our event next year! Thanks to my friend Laurie for letting me use her wonderfully decorated house for these photos! This girl is the queen of decorating for the holidays and has between 10 and 15 trees up in her house.

I won't go into Saturday evening because it was not one I would like to remember! Just pray for my family as we have hit a huge bump in the road that brought up some really bad memories that are threatening to destroy my family! I know we can get through it with lots of faith and prayer!

Sunday dawned with a very bad cold for me!! Lots of coughing and feeling really tired! My chest really hurts! If I am not better by Monday or Tuesday I will call the doctor to see what I need to do to get better! I have to get better because I have been hired by the city to do some photos of the light display at the park! I will be taking photos of the displays that are sponsored so the photo can be sent to the sponsor in a Christmas card from the city! I am excited to be hired to do this but I need to feel better to be able to complete the assignment in a timely manner so they can go out in the mail!

Monday is looming over my head with stuff that needs to be done and just feeling blah!! So here we go to start the week! Hope it is a good one for you!
