My kiddos

My boys

Everyone has been asking for updates and I know it is about time.  Eric and Jace are doing awesome – although I’m not quite sure if they are friend or foe of each other from one minute to the next.   We always feel in the state of da je vue as with them only being a year apart from each other… just as we complete one stage with Eric we start that same stage with Jace.

Eric is in pre-school now part time and absolutely loves going to school, loves his teacher “Ms. Lisa” and all his new friends.  He is super smart, which also means he needs to be kept very busy or gets a little crazy!lol.  He loves puzzles and just about anything that keeps his little feet moving indoors and out.

Jace is Eric’s shadow.  He loves his brother, but also has really been enjoying when Eric goes to school and gets some independence.  He always has a smile and hug for everyone, and I love that he tells me he loves me all the time.  He also always walks around an announces “I’m happy” about 10 times a day.  Can’t ask for any better than that.

I’ve been loving every minute of watching them change and grow, and absolutely love being able to talk with them now.  If they had their way, they would have me read books to them all day long.  And yes, my kids watch cartoons – with favorites being Calliou and Little Ms Spider – but Backyardigans takes a close 3rd.  The movie of the year was officially “How to train your Dragon” and I’m still trying to figure out how to apply it to “How to train your Children” with little luck on the conversion.

Holidays have taken on a completely new meaning at our house.  Mance and I have unfortunately been a tad on the scrooge side with little or no decorating for any holidays.  But we busted out with the fun this year starting for Halloween and carved 7 pumpkins, put up a huge spider and web on our porch, and costumes are Spiderman for Eric and a Pirate for Jace.  We hit up a halloween party at Eric’s school and they are having so much fun.  It is nice to feed off their energy, and now I’m even looking forward to Thanksgiving and decorating for Christmas with a big tree this year.

As always I’m busy working on the photography  business and photography projects.  2010 has been an amazingly creative year for me.  I’m working with Yvette of  MUY BUENO COOKBOOK and it has been very exciting seeing it come together and the amazing presence it has been receiving in anticipation of the publication.  I’ve had the opportunity to photograph for some amazing restaurants in Denver and Breckenridge, had a few fashion photo shoots this year, and of course all of my maternity, newborn and wedding photography too.  A long time client of mine Wendy has joined Fototails Photography and I’m so happy to have some help with clients in session planning, and some projects for the business.

Overall, lots to be excited about for 2011!!!! 🙂
