Photo Dump

I wanted to share, with those of you that are interested, some photos.  First up will be some of my own baby clothes that my mother cleaned and wrapped up for me for Christmas, for my baby girl.  There are also some hand-knitted hats that she got at a craft fair that are just too cute.  Next up will be my maternity/Christmas photos.  If you think any of these things might be upsetting in any way, please feel free to pass right on by, I'll understand!

First, here are my puppies "helping" me work from home the other day, just so that you aren't automatically bombarded with baby clothes!  They don't like to leave me a whole lot of room to sit.

And, the reason I was working from home:

We got another 3-ish inches last night.  Big and fluffy.  I'm sure JP is getting tired of shoveling, though.

Here are the baby clothes that were once mine, 32 or so year ago.  Please ignore the messy table!

And the hand-knitted little hats that Mom couldn't resist at the craft fair:

 And here are my/our 10 favorite of the 31 maternity/Christmas photos, that were taking on December 4th.

This one has the beautiful Lincoln Memorial Bridge in the background:

Here we are in front of our store:

This is the alleyway beside our store.  The brick wall and brick alley ended up being my favorite backdrop.

This is still in front of our store, but facing down the historic street.

The display window of our store,  I thought this was a neat idea, though getting down in to that position and back up again was interesting!

Another random alley-way a couple of blocks away, with a really neat old freight elevator that I didn't even know was there!

On the steps of the memorial:

Inside of our store, in front of our massive shelf of demo games.  We tried really hard to capture "us".

And that's all she wrote!  JP and I are headed to go see The Hobbit!  I'm so excited!  Have a great weekend!


  1. Love the maternity photos! You look so cute. :)

    It's so nice that your mom saved some of your baby clothes. My mom saved nothing. Which is probably just as well, considering that I was a baby during the 70s. Those clothes were not pretty!

  2. My mom saved some of my clothes too....Haven't had a chance yet to use any since I was a spring baby and my daughter is a December baby.

    I love the pictures of you and your hubs....and I really REALLY love your boots...Super cute!

  3. Yes, I agree, you look super cute! I love how he's quite a bit taller than you - very sweet and creates a feeling of care and protection in some of the shots. I love all the different backdrops and the one by the freight elevator is so fun and darling of you both! Happy New Year!
    p.s. love that your mom is so excited and found and bought all that stuff. :-)

  4. I love those little hats! And those pictures are adorable!

  5. Love the maternity photos!!
