Howard/McDaniel Wedding

December 27, 2015 - 

Only twenty five minutes until the ceremony begins!

Quite the "legit" multi-camera setup.

I got a ringside seat - pun intended

The newly wedded Mr. And Mrs. Jason Howard

(bookended by the two Andrews)

Photos of the photographer getting photos...

And these are obviously not posed shots of these two...

Bride's family

Grandparents looking on

The two families

As were the bread and cheeses on the table of hors d'oeuvre.

As if cheesecake wasn't already appetizing in and of itself 
- how about this close-up shot.

The throng watching them cut the cake and eagerly awaiting 
whether these two would play nice or not.

Smiles during the first dance

"Witnessing" the marriage

The bride (literally) on the threshold of her new life as a wife.

Seeing off the bride and groom with plenty of shouting, bubbles, and a collective "awww...yeah..." (Studio C)

Christmas Under the Mistletoe

December 25, 2015 - 

The only picture with Ben's eyes open.
Poor guy, he was up late trying to clear a clogged pipe in the kitchen.

Stockings first.

A hands free tablet holder

Looking forward to doing some reading in 2016!

Sure, use your new axe to open the next present...

...and your work bag for a hat.

I did it!  
The Rubik's cube was already "solved" but I overcame my OCD and forced myself to mix it all up.  That may have been more difficult than solving it!

Lydia's been through this "Christmas morning drill" 7 other times.

Though she's grown a lot since then:

Christmas Eve - 2008

Later that evening with family...

Noah and our cousin, Eli

Gift exchange

That dress. 

She's definitely a very loved little girl!

Look who I caught under the mistletoe this year...
