What an Amazing Day

Well I listen to many people mention that they are still trying desperately to scrap book Xmas 2007 well I am still doing 2006 layouts. I wanted to share these few little gems with you. As they involved photos that for me captured the warmth and serenity of Christmas Eve / Christmas Day (4am) before the kids were up and before the chaos of cooking began.

I can't even begin to share with you how much I am looking forward to sharing these moments with Bob this year. Parent's you know what I mean, the stockings are stuffed, Santa has arrived and the presents neatly arranged. The room is tidied and ready for the laughter of children and the muffled squeals of delight from reserved young people that would really much prefer to yell but its just not cool. I am going today to look for that little piece of Mistletoe, and I can only hope that someone will catch Mommy kissing Santa Claus on digital film - now there is a scrap page. LOL LOL

Yesterday was a really awesome day filled with lots of wonderful and rare photographic opportunities and more importantly............... I had my camera to take advantage.

I love these chances and whats more I love the fun and laughter of family as we celebrated John's 19th birthday. My baby is growing up........ a year ago all the pleading and begging and bribery would not have worked to have him pose for a photo. So for those of you wanting to know what my Young Man Now looks like................ Here he is and I am so proud of him.

Yesterday, I was advised that there were some interesting things happening with a steam line at work. A small leak was letting steam escape and when it hit the -20C air it would explode like a fire work into bits of ice. I wish I could have captured the actual happening as it is so neat to watch. However I was able to capture the cool and amazing ice formations that resulted.
