Holiday Portraits Pt 2

Michael has to try a bit to coax out a good smile. I like how these came out this year. I think the spirit of the Palmer kids was caught just for a moment.

Also if you have moment, head over to Canon Blogger for Thursday Thoughts with Me. Jason has started a weekly chat series at his blog. He has been on my daily stops for a while now.

Weekend Fun

We had a great time wandering the streets here in Potomac last Friday night - It lead to a busy weekend of sports, BBQ, and the icing on the cake was second row center seats at Cirque du Soleil Kooza last night with the kids. The Tapis Rouge ticket is the way to go, You get a tent, drinks, food, gifts and great seats. If you are local, it is here until December 14th.
