It's Beginning to Look A lot like Christmas

 Everywhere you go, there's a tree in the grande hotel, one in the park as well...okay I'll stop. But you have to admit it is a catchy tune, no? no...okay fine, I'm just a little nutty this time of year. Christmas has always been a big part of my family life growing up. The season of celebrating was exactly that. We celebrated and it would last the whole season.  We would put up our tree mid November (while watching the Toronto Santa Claus Parade) and the tree doesn't come down until January 8. When I moved in with C, that didnt really change...
Even my parent's dog, Patch, gets into the Christmas Spirit

Guess Whoo had her baby!!

Remember that baby shower I threw back in August? Well, mommy-to-be finally had her little Jimmy Bean back in August.

 Isn't he a cutie! I was lucky enough to be asked to shoot Lil' Bean's baby photography. This is how it turned out. Check the photos out after the jump, you know you want to.

Catching up....

Hello everyone,

I'm so sorry I have been MIA for a while, I swear it's because I have been busy and not because I have been avoiding the least partially....So much has happened in the last few months that I don't even know where to start. For one, I'M ENGAGED!!!!!!!!!!!!! (*insert squeals of joy and child-like bouncing*)
That's right...we were so excited that we didn't realize he put the ring on the wrong hand until after the photos haha.
 C was the master of secrecy for months and I of course was too busy with work that I didn't really pick up on the secrets. I'm usually really good at ruining surprises...and C's jokes but that's another story. To begin, C had been promising me a private picnic day all year round but life kept getting busy so it didn't happen all spring or summer long. Fast forward to September 2012, my job is stressful and the hours are shifty and long so I was really in need of some relaxation time away from reality (which also explains the spur of the momentish *yup i makeup my own words no big deal* trip to Disney World...again another story...) So we made plans *sorta* C kept saying that one of the Saturdays in September we would go out have a picnic and I could take photos of us. So the Saturdays in September came and went and no picnic. Then C gave me the ultimate PINKY SWEAR (that means legit) that we would have our picnic the first weekend of October before Thanksgiving (Canuck over here :) So we headed to the grocery store and picked up juice boxes, bread, more meat then a t-Rex would eat and napkins. Thursday moved its way to us and C told me that friday's picnic may have to wait because he might be getting a call to go into work anytime during the day on friday (which turned out that the ring had been delayed in the mail which was unexpected to him so he couldnt propose during the picnic which had been his plan all along) (* i know I ramble, eh*) So that weekend came and went with no picnic. He was "called into work" on the friday (which was a call saying the ring was ready for pick up) . October 12, 2012 we set out on this picnic. *Finally!!!!!!!* So the day goes as followed (btw everyone else knew what was to happen during this picnic BUT me!!! Sneaky bas****, but I love him!)
