Nachos Navidad with the Rogerses




When Meadow requests big pancake, you make big pancake.

So, Brooke made big pancake. See how that works.

 While Theo napped, Meadow and I went to the library for a Gnome making class.

 The description made it sound like more sewing would be involved, but we still had fun.

 She made a girl gnome of course.

It looks just like Meadow.

Then I left the kids for a few hours to go to work.

We made forts and Meadow danced around.

Little guy has fun with anybody.

I came home to reading time.

We hadn't hung out with the Rogerses for a while and invited them over for a nachos feast.

You can't go wrong with nachos.

We would've hung out with the them more, but we didn't realize they were actually living in the cities full time.

And of all places they live a block from our old house.

Theo was loving the company.

Little Dora and Harper just loved playing in Meadow's room. 

After they left Meadow and I fell asleep on the couch. 

I guess the party got to them.

Bu Bye Chicago, Hello Milwaukee

The morning after the wedding we had leftover bagels for breakfast.
...and Brooke looked out the window.
Haha that's not me, that's Emma. See what I mean? My own husband can't tell the difference. 
By the way did you know we had roommates in our hotel room?
I also ate leftover pie from the wedding. 

Despite having to be quiet at night we enjoyed sharing our room with Tyler, Emma and Olive. It was kind of like a big sleepover.
Then we had to check out and head to Pilsen for lunch.
Tyler had been talking up Nuevo Leone for a while now, so we skipped Burrito House this time.

Next time it's a must. That's two times in a row that I didn't go to Burrito House. 
Pilsen is one my favorite Chicago neighborhoods, so I was easily cajoled.
I'm not exactly sure how they do their laundry with the machine facing the window.


Tyler, Emma and Olive got lost or something, so we walked around for a bit.
Brooke really wanted to eat this hot dog, but I said "No, it's a paint…

Honeymoon: Madeline Island Without a Kayak? At Least We Brought Bikes.

We made it safely to Bayfield without getting attacked by any bears.

I think that's because of my wily driving skills.

Katrina and Dennis's Big Day!

I don't shoot nearly enough weddings. I'm just not good at the whole marketing aspect.The one's I end up photographing are, like this one, family or through the grapevine.
This time around I'm shooting my big (little) sister's wedding to Dennis, a man I respect immensely. I got to hang out with him a few times in Chicago and then a whole week in San Jose. I really looked forward to the bachelor party with the guys and wasn't disappointed.
While the women got ready and after I helped setup the venue I came back to hang with the dudes and ostensibly get dressed. As you can see above we drank some beer and booze and shot the shit.

My big brother, Colin, was the officiant and was really excited for his parking pass that was included with his ordination packet.
All the women involved in the wedding gathered into Katie's room to get our hair done. Olive was just there to entertain us.

And the bride is ready.
At some point we had to take taxis the mile or so up Wab…
