Tonight is the Tenino High School homecoming dance. Rachel and her friends got ready at our house and happily posed for pictures on the porch. Taking pictures on the porch before every dance has become one of our traditions. This is Mike's first year at the high school but he decided not to go to the dance, maybe next time. I cant wait to get pictures of him and his dates too!! I'm sure he wont be nearly as willing or patient when it comes to posing for me.

Here's a layout I did of Nancy and me from my birthday party in 2003. This is one of my favorite pictures and I'm glad I finally got a chance to scrap it. I bought this paper this weekend at a cool store in Utah called the Heartland Paper Company. While I was shopping I was lucky enough to run into the amazing Margie Romney-Aslett. I've been seeing her at conventions and taking classes from her forever, it was fun to see her out and about in the real world!

Here are a few pictures form our Senior shoot today. We went to the Olympian Capitol Campus and down town Olympia too. Morgan came along and we had fun picking places to pose and taking shots from different angles. Probably the funniest thing was when we were in an alley trying to get the graffiti shot. A guy came walking up and said"pose that shit"- pretty sure he was high or drunk!! We all looked at each other and decided it was time to get out of there!! We stopped one more time, in the same alley, and took the shots with the orange chair and the graffiti. I think I like the crossed legged shot in the pink and white shirt the best. Hopefully she picks one of these, if not, we'll be back out again looking for new spots and trying again. Anyone have a favorite?

This weekend we went to Port Orchard for Jim's brother Scott's wedding. Jim was the best man so he got to wear a tux. This is the first time I have ever seen him in one and my heart skipped a little beat when I first saw him, he looked so handsome. I took lots of pictures of everyone and I'm glad I did, it was a beautiful wedding. Thankfully the rain stayed away! The bride, Shawna, and her daughter, Kira, had dresses that almost matched. Kira stole the show when she announced, during the ceremony that she was hungry, wanted to take a nap or play with her soccer ball. She's so darn cute. Morgan lined up to try to catch the bouquet, after I offered her $50 if she caught it (thank goodness she missed). Mike tried for the garter ( after an offer of $20)but didn't have a shot against the one grown man that was up there after it. All in all it was a fun afternoon.
