I’m in the process of editing and uploading more pictures to the gallery. For those of you who have been grumping about not being able to see pics of our new place, the grumping can stop and you can go here. I should have pics up for mom and dad’s visit and our anniversary in the White Mountains very soon. I’m also going to upload all of the official wedding photos unadjusted since I’ve been hearing some complaining in that area as well. If you have favorites, let me know. I”m going to also be uploading them to MPix for printing soon.


The official Wedding Photos can be viewed here. If you would like prints, send me an email so I know which ones to load to MPix.

Life is Nuts and I Still Have to Pack

This month has been zipping by me. I’m in a summer class that basically squished a what is typically a full semester class into half the time. I’ve been able to keep up but it’s really reading and work intensive. I have four classes left for the summer semester, one of which I will be missing because I have my orientation meeting for my internship during the same time as the class.

Couple more Updates

I have finally finished my updates for pictures for the time being. I’ve just finished uploading and tweaking the Christmas Break 2005-2006 album, and even though I have more pictures to upload, my next project is to work on my paper for therapeutic foster care and getting my new laptop set up properly.

Also, I tweaked some things on the Wishlist page. I added some of the children’s series I read when I was growing up and absolutely loved.

Anyway, it’s time to get back to work now. Good thing I have spring break this next week….

Picture Day

I have done some rearranging in the gallery.  I decided to organize things into categories so I could navigate easier when I want to upload stuff.  I also have added a lot of new pictures including several new albums of pictures.  I wanted to go ahead and burn all of my pictures that I took in 2005 to cd so I thought that I would go ahead and tweak them a bit and post them on the site for visualizing.  No you don’t get to see all of them because that would take too much time, and some of the pictures I took came out terrible.  Besides I’m running behind and still have pictures waiting to be uploaded from my camera for a trip we took in January with our church.  So, without further ado here are the new categories (I hope it makes navigation easier):

I have also posted some new pictures in the end of the Magnolia album.  And here’s a list of all the new albums:

And a list of the new albums that are listed with nothing in them yet because I haven’t finished working with the photos:

  • Labor Day 2005 
  • Ohio 2005 
  • Christmas Break 2005-2006 

I’ll put up another email when I have those last three albums completed…and maybe a few more…
