After realizing I only picked up my camera once in almost two weeks (my 365 project is going to end up more like a 265 LOL!), I decided to try to get back in the groove and actually take a few pictures! This week, the theme is “Thankful,” and what could represent that theme better than my husband and children.
Although I wasn’t shooting, I was going back through the pictures I have taken this year and last and putting together a few photobooks. I have some coupons for Blurb, and am also going to try out Artisan State’s “little black book.” I have put together a 1-year book for Andrew, our 2012 yearbook (almost done with that one), and a 2012-2013 book for Jack. I am going to print the yearbook as a 12×12 Blurb book, Andrew’s 1-year as an 8×8 Blurb, and Jack’s as a 5×7 60-page Little Black Book (Artisan State).
I am also planning to rent a Sigma 35mm lens to see how I like it. My 50mm has been giving me a little trouble. After doing a little research, it seems this is a common problem among Canon 6d users. I think the 35 will be nice to have when shooting indoors, which I end up doing a lot of in the winter.
And now for the photos:
Nothing beats a warm fire, a good book, and a cup of coffee. Just ask Pete.

Andrew “counting” before he heads down the slide!
Bedtime stories…Jack “reading” the story to Pete and Andrew
