Family Pictures

Too many pictures to post about individually, but I needed to get them onto the site.

Thanks to Erika Loveland Photography. This was easily the most fun we've had as a family taking pictures. Erika is very skilled, very patient with the craziness of photographing small children, and very easy going overall....thank goodness. It was really a terrific experience.

We would have spent the same amount of money going to a studio (like Kiddie Kandids) and not had nearly as much fun (to say the least) and not come away with nearly as many photos. I cannot recommend her enough.

Anyway - on to the picks - taken in November of 2007.

Amahl and the Night Visitors

I recently got to perform in an opera "Amahl and the Night Visitors" (more detailed info on the opera here). It is a Christmas opera and I played one of the three kings: Balthazar.

The best part of the whole thing for me came after our final performance. An older woman (probably in her late 70s or early 80s) came up to me and thanked me for the performance. She said that her husband used to perform my role years ago and loved performing the opera every Christmas. She said my performance reminded her of her husband who had died 3 years ago and She thanked me for bringing back the memories of her late husband.

I have never been so touched or honored by any performance I have ever been a part of. It made all the work and effort (and makeup) worthwhile.

As for the makeup comment......

As we are about to come on stage Amahl says (sings) this line:

"There are three kings outside....and one of them is black!"

I'll let you guess which king I was. And just as proof of how lousy a "black king" I make, here are some pictures.

The summer outfits

It begins.

Now that it's regularly hitting the 90's in AZ, Marci finally gets to start dressing Sabrina in all the cute outfits she's been hoarding all winter.

Heaven help us all.

Is she part dog?

Sabrina has taken to putting a sock in her mouth and crawling around with it. It seems we always see her with a sock in her mouth - it's like she can't crawl around without it.

Very bizarre.

New Toys

Seems that both Sabrina and Gavin like to play with the new doll Sabrina got for her birthday.

Sabrina's 1st B-day

Here are some pictures of Sabrina's recently celebrated 1st birthday.

The swing? Oh, yes...we like it a LOT!

We're not too sure about cupcakes though....

Hmmm...seems that we like it after all...

Yes...we definitely like it.


Yes, this is Sabrina's new hairdo courtesy of Marci. Ain't it just fun?

Sabrina has asthma

Yep, just like Gavin, Sabrina has asthma. Poor kid. Isn't this the saddest picture of her you've ever seen?
