Hula Hoop!

Brad has mastered Wii Hula Hoop!

Greg turns 40!!!

Hale birthday gang. Within the last month Greg turned 40, Richard turned 10 and the twins turned 7

This was my 40th birthday hat, thought we should start a tradition. Greg looks pleased about it.

What does a man want as his birthday dinner....BEEF thats whats for dinner.. this beauty is 22 oz of prime rib. Specially prepared for Greg at Johnny Seesaw's in Peru, VT.

Digging in....... mmmmmmm

Greg and Tonya. Don't tell her she has to sleep with an old man now.

Good looks run in the family....don't you think. Of course when a man turns 40 the handsome gene kicks in....

Not sure what they have planned for later, hope she has a bow on the present!

MA convention

There was no hiding at the MA convention. Nancy made sure everyone knew that I was the PPANE president!!

It was AWESOME to hang with Mary at the MA convention. It has been a few years since Mary and I have judged together. What a hoot, automatic challenge.... Mary is at a 75 and Donna is at a 95. Just shows you what good judges we are using the HALF scale on ONE print!

Banquet night is always fun getting dressed up being able to dance! Of course this is a stress release after giving ANOTHER speech!

I may not have won any awards at the MA convention but I got to take this handsome man home!!

Lola's First Convention!

La La Lola got to attend her first convention with Brad and I. Here she is a the MA trade show! She was a MAJOR attraction, I didn't even need chocolate to get people to stop at the booth.

Lola and Ansel Lizzari had major conversation about hooking up. Ansel thought Lola was a hot ticket and she had to make sure he knew all the rules if they were going to play!

Happy Hearts Day!

Happy Happy Hearts Day!! Hard to think this is Brad's and I 3rd valentine together. Not that we do much, either he has been working or I have been out of town. So we have picked another day in the week to take some extra time together. This year unplanned we got each other books and some sweet cards. We went to dinner and the movies on Friday the 13th! Lucky no curses or bad things, just some good laughs at "He is just not that into you". Brad is at work today and I leave for Vegas tomorrow go attend the WPPI convention!

Xmas in Febuary!!

There is nothing like a Triple Belgian Ale and this little beauty was gifted to me by Nancy and Peter. They are the best!!!!! Check out the name....
A crisp tangy bite with slightly bitter after taste....perfect.........and 7% alcohol by volume does'nt hurt

CT convention!

Don't we look like we went to the prom?? Brad and I are at the CT Professional Photographers Convention. It was their 60th convention and we blended right in with the decor!

Brad is really getting the posing stuff. He is starting to look better then me, this is not good!!

I am sure many of you have been back 100 times looking for PROOF that I dressed up for halloween.  Well here is the proof, I figured since someone stoled my point and shoot camera out of the Jeep that I can borrow this off Danielle and Steve's (host of the party) facebook page!
