I really am going to make more of an effort with my photography this year as I love it so. Below is a table ornament that was from Den's work Christmas dinner ... and my Chonk in the background - licking the bowl from the cake I had just whipped up!
I had used Picasa to edit this photo.
This week I did much spring cleaning and listend to my children while I did so. Katie wanted to write a book, so Hugh and I tried to help her out - her spelling is 99% phonetic and is a language unto herself. Here is Hugh setting her up to type out her story.
That is after he had kindly offered to scribe all her ramblings down! LOL!
I helped her with the finished product ... all printed off and placed nicely in a plastic pocket folder. "The Adventures of Wattle" (her yellow teddy). She is very proud of each installment she does - so far we have the 'Christmas' story and 'Wattle goes to the Park'.
Keeps her out of mischief while the boys and I compute!
Christmas Day saw us celebrate with Den's family and an outdoors BBQ. Here is a quick collage ... and no we did not get a puppy! I am not that silly! LOL! By personal favourite is the delicious pavlova in the bottom right corner - yum-oh!
Tomorrow we are off to celebrate with my family!
I could not wait to get my hands on Lightroom 3 for Christmas ... I could spend hours playing with photos and can't wait to use it fully. Here are a couple of quickly edited shots of my first play:
1. some ornaments at the Christmas table
2. Den and his two precious this morning - the Ipad I bought him for Christmas and his furry friend who never leaves his side! "Precious" is what he nicknamed his Ipad aka Lord of the Rings and the 'precious'! LOL!

So guess I will speak to you all again NEXT YEAR!
