Fun fundraising photo shoots...

The past 2 weekends I've had a ball taking family portraits to raise money for the Relay for Life! I raised over $500.00!!!! WOOT WOOT!!
Here are a couple of the shots that were my favorite. I shot from 2 locations. One at beautiful Lithia Park in Ashland, Oregon and the other at White's Country Farm in Medford, Oregon.

Thanks to all who came and donated! I had a blast and we raised money for a GREAT CAUSE!!

RIP Blackberry...

Today a terrible tragedy occured! My blackberry phone... which is a pretty big lifeline for me... died. Rest is peace dear Red! (That was it's name because it was pretty and red)

Red was a part of my life, social calendar, sanity and annoyances for the past 2 years. It will be sorely missed.

And while the mourning process is still in effect the joyous recovery has shown it's lovely face... in the form of an iPhone!!

Let me tell you... I feel SPOILED ROTTEN with this new phone! But it will be VERY beneficial with the craziness that is my life. Plus I feel like my sanity could be helped as I'm listening to "Girls Just Want to Have Fun!" through the streaming music player on the new iPhone!!

I'm sure will be pics... but that is for AFTER the mourning period. :)

Here piggy piggy piggy!

And... another one bites the dust!

Chloe has been struck with high fever, head and body aches and overall miserableness. My poor girls! On Friday we found out that Abby has confirmed H1N1 flu virus. So she was in quarentine all weekend. The Dr's told us that it would run through the family and start with a fever. So here we go AGAIN!!

I've always thought little piglets were cute.... but this is just sick and wrong!
