Weekly ramblings

Wow! Another week has come and gone. Katie and I were saying yesterday that time generally seems to fly but lately it's REALLY flying!!!

Unfortunately a cold bug has found me so I'm taking it slow today. I was supposed to meet some girlfriends for brunch but I've opted to keep my germs to myself and stay under a blanket with some meds!

I finally got around to uploading my card from Grandmaman Turpin's wedding last week.
Denis took hundreds of pictures but I only took a few. We're planning on making them an album as a wedding gift.

It was a lovely day. Grandmaman was simply glowing and Uncle Gil was like a young, excited groom! It was great spending time with D's aunts and uncles once again. There were so many laughs and good times all around.

The ceremony was at their home and then we went out to a wonderful little restaurant in Perth called The Stone Cellar. The food was amazing.

Doesn't Grandmaman look like the queen - Mom Turpin pointed that out...

Sealed with a kiss

Officially married after 25+ years together...

Celebrating with some bubbly
D's Aunt Jo made yummy appetizers!

Signs of spring - flowers in the restaurant

More smooching. We thought poor Grandmaman would pass out from this one!

Check out the legs on that wine...

I am starting a five-day online class tomorrow with SIS TV. I have been wanting to learn the art of photo editing for a while and this is my first attempt at it.

Lucky for me, Denis and I did a photo shoot with Katie and her sweet family yesterday. Denis ended up taking about 97% of the pictures and I was the entertainment. It was hilarious and we had SO MUCH FUN.

We even set up a fake bedroom in our studio in the basement to get some relaxed family shots. Kayleigh and Kasey were such troopers because they are both sick and didn't have the best sleep. I would like to thank our giant blue exercise ball for serving as the entertainment of the day. Kayleigh spotted it and we were able to get many smiles and giggles out of the girls with that ball!

I plan to post a few sneak peeks in the upcoming days once I've "played" with the shots in my class.

I so can't wait!

Enjoy your Sunday lovelies

What an awesome wedding event - I think it is so amazing that no matter what age in life, marriage can be such a blissful occasion! Looking forward to seeing the sneak peeks from your photo shoot.

Wow the wedding looked so sweet.
I can't wait to see the photos of the kids, I've always wanted to get professional shots taken but I just can't seem to warrant it with the thousands I have on my pc of Molly. maybe some day!
