These are pictures Danny took of a couple of vehicles off the road in this mess.


Jessa at 17 Weeks 2 Days


My Favorite's from My Photography Class

Ok, so you may not have known I was taking a photography class since I focused on PhotoShop.  LOL  But I did indeed take a Photography class and am now sharing my favorites.

This scene just appealed to me and I really do not know why, but I do like this picture.

This one just popped when I scanned it.  It does not show here, but when printed, it almost looks like a comic strip it is so color saturated.

I just like this picture of Dad.  It was taken at the big Rockhouse at the lake.

This is my favorite of the two pics of Dad.  I love this composition and it is even better that there is just the hint of peach in the sky.

I caught this one as I was driving past the lookout point.  Technically, it sucks, but I like it!

A sunset over Danny's house.  I looked out the window while eating supper and this was what I saw.  Not often that I am fast enough to catch this stuff.

I like this picture, I really do, I have been trying forEVER to get a successful picture of the spillway and while I like this one, it still does not feel "successful."

THIS one however, feels MUCH more successful to me.  I *love* this one.  It was taken right after a storm and I love the composition.

 I also like the colors in this one.  This is a tree on Okmulgee Avenue and I just happened to catch it just right.  I was stalking for Autumn pics and out of all of them, this one is the only one that came out.  The blues and oranges are just awesome!

All of the pics were taken with my Pentax K1000 and Kodak Electra 400.  Processed normally with NO correction at all at Walgreens.

Jessa is 14 weeks, 6 days today

Her due date is estimated at June 2.  Here are new pics.  I still think she is farther along than that!  Oh, and she had an u/s today and is having a BOY!


More PhotoShop Stuff from this semester

Here a few more files I created in my PS class.  They are not going to let me take Illustrator next year, so I am somewhat bummed.



Well, it has been a loooong time since I posted...

...anything other than baby bump pictures. 

Not that I have much to say now, either.  But I figured I should say SOMETHING.  SO...something!  Ok, ok, I know that is not funny.  We had a great Thanksgiving, Danny, Yvonne, Jessica, Charles, Dad and I ate about 2  and visited for a while before Danny and Yvonne left to go out to the lake.  Then Jessica, Dad, myself and Charles played Wahoo! 

Once we were through with that, we all made cards.  Thank you cards for Jessica to give the people who have helped them since they have been here.  Dad was quality control and Charles did the menial tasks of cutting and scoring.  I showed Jessa how to use the Cricut and we both glued the cutouts down.

Today I drove to Tulsa to the school in order to flatten my pictures.  When I got there the doors were locked, I called Security because I am supposed to be allowed in even when it is closed as I am on "the list."  No such luck, they informed me I had to have a "pass."  So....45 minutes of driving up and 45 minutes driving home for NOTHING.  I was a bit annoyed to say the least.

Other than that, not much going on.  Y and D are breaking up.  More on that another time.  Suffice to say, it has been a long day and I am tired.  But at least Thanksgiving was amazing.

More Baby Bump Pics from Today

She is having her first US on the 8th.


Newest Baby Bump Pics!

Self Explanatory, we find out tomorrow how far along she is, we hope!


Trunk or Treat

Every year previous to this one, Shela would help arrange and coordinate Trunk or Treat.  This year, of course, that couldn't happen.  But I think she would be proud of us.  We had more people than ever before show up both to help out and to play.  Connie, Sue and everyone pitched in and Connie coordinated the games, Sue the food and EVERYONE in the church participated.  It was a grand time and I really think the community outreach was majorly successful.  We even had horse and pony rides.  It was an awesome time.  We missed you, Shela!

This is C.J. and Yolanda.  A new young couple in our church.  They are very helpful and a wonderful addition to our church.

This is Dorie, attempting to mount behind Jim.  LOL  With a little help from Wanda, she made it!

Sue and A.J.  Love 'em!

This is a Frost Sculpture that CJ made for Yolanda.  Essentially, it is refrigeration tubing in the shape of a dolphin.  Beautiful!

Connie P!  The coordinator and game minder!
Jim, one of our Pastors.
Jessica, my daughter.  Who is pregnant and should NOT have been up there!
And this is our special Emma!  She is a great kid.  The kids take up the Missionary offering every Sunday and she would, when a bit younger, take all the dollar bills out of the can because they were not money!
Miss Priss, Lindzy. She is such a princess!
Cassi the clown, Ken and Glinda.
Dad, manning the bowling alley.  I like this pic of him!
Kamryn and Kane
Kylie and a precious little one.
Emma getting her clown face on!
Kelly and one of our attendees with Buddy the Shetland Pony!
Jessa again.
Angel, one of ours.
Chloe, the fairy with attitude!  LOL
 Malinda, Angel and Chloe's mom.

Wilma, Nana Mae and Kamryn
Mandra, another one of ours.  She has all the makings to be a mean girl, thin, gorgeous, lots of friends.  And she is the sweetest, most down to earth little one you would ever meet!
