Blustery Smiles

Goodness gracious, was today ever a cold one!  I am truly not ready for 40-som degree weather...ek!  So why am I smiling so big and cheesy you ask, well....seems that being smacked in the face by frigid Mr. Wind does this to me.  I know...I'll stop complaining.  I am perpetually cold which makes me the biggest baby about the late fall and winter months.

I'm not sure why, but the fam and I decided to get out and go to the park today...maybe not the smartest thing considering the temp, but Keane LOVES it there and always has tons of fun and really, this is all that matters.  A lovely blogger gal recently emailed me and asked how I take photos for my blog with my son around.  If he is with us, like on this occasion...we usually snap a few photos before leaving the place we are at and 9 out of 10 times I use my Iphone for this...today I happened to have my SLR with me, but that is rare.  It is a rather quick process and Keane is always either right next to me or my husband.  The best thing is, we always walk away with oodles and oodles of photos of Keane:-)  I don't plan outings around taking photos...I work taking photos into whatever we are doing at the time.  Parks or walks around the neighborhood work well for this.  Other than that...on days that Keane is visiting with his grandparents, Albert and I will find the time to do a good shoot.  If you are a mommy, I'd love to hear about how you take photos with your little one around.

Anyhow, by now I am getting all cozy and settled into the new house...still lots of work to do, but nonetheless, feeling more settled which is a fantabulous thing.  On order is plenty of painting and making this house our home.

Other than that, Thanksgiving is quickly approaching and I just can't wait to partake of all the delicious food and visit with family in Philly.  I most definitely have so much for be thankful for.  Don't you just love the holiday season?


Much love & happy Mondays,
