As I looked back on last year's Johnson family photos, I laughed that I had noted that posting in February was late. Well now it's almost May and I am just now sharing some of my favorites from this session with them from this past Christmas. I discovered these lovely locations with Reed and Hedder just weeks before I met with the Johnsons and just knew I had to go back as soon as possible. Hope you enjoy these photos of one of my favorite families in the whole wide world in my favorite field ever! We must start with the youngest star of the family, in all her dimple grin adorableness! I can't even fathom how many photos I have of this lovely lady
Looking for a fun and safe environment to take your kiddos on Halloween? Our church is hosting a carnival: Calvary Carnival! Lots of candy, fun, exciting games and jumpers. Plus free hot dogs, cotton candy, & pop corn. And you can enter to win a iPad Mini (!!!) along with other fun prizes! It will be located at the school where our church regularly meets, Canyon Hills Middle School. But this year it has expanded quite a bit! I'm really looking forward to it
Do you have a place to go for this weekend's Easter celebration? Join us in Canyon Hills as we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord Jesus Christ! You will know the truth and the truth will set you free. Good Friday service at 7 on April 18th. Easter services at 9 and 11 on the morning of April 20th. With child care provided at both Sunday services! Please use the below graphic to share about our services on Facebook too! And here are a few more images of the newspaper I helped design for our local newspaper. Hope to see you there!
Christmas is closing in on us yet again! I still can't believe this year has came and went so so fast. And what a year it was! One of the joys of Christmas that I always look forward to is receiving Christmas cards in the mail! Here are a few designs I helped my friends create last year along with our very own Christmas card design (for whatever reason they never made it on here last year!). Each of these 3 designs are listed in my Etsy shop so head on over there if any of these would suit your needs this year. All you have to do is provide me some photographs and your desired wording/verses and I can customize your card for you! You will then get a file back to order your cards through whatever service you'd like! I have a few to recommend too! P.S. Here's a sneak peek into the hand lettering of our 2013 card
Christmas at Disneyland is always magical. The park is themed down to the smallest detail, decked out to its finest for this merry season. Plus, where else can you experience snow in Southern California? You know, besides the mountains? My all time favorite tradition is the Candlelight Processional, where the entire Town Square is transformed, where the lights of Main Street dim, where hundreds of choirs walk through the park singing Christmas carols, where the Gospel of Jesus is read to the masses. If you have never made it to one of these very special nights, I would highly recommend it. And for the first time ever, in its 54 years of celebrations, Disneyland expanded the tradition from its 2 night spectacle into a 20 night long extravaganza. Almost every single night of this merry month, Disneyland commenced the procession not just once but twice nightly. I have been unable to attend the last few years as it was only the first weekend of December, but this year Rachel and I made it to last week's performance with Dick Van Dyke as narrator. After seeing this show more than a few times, Mr. Van Dyke is my all time favorite narrator. He graced us
One of my favorite traditions is buying our annual Disney ornament! I featured our 2011 ornament last year along with several others from previous years. This year's ornament, similar in look to last year, is our 8th annual ornament from Disneyland. I think some of my favorite Disney ornaments though are from their more rustic collection—which feature a more vintage Mickey and Minnie—wish they had these out again this year. Another new ornament this year was from our trip through Oregon, from Mutnomah Falls! And lastly, remember this beauty from the Vintage Marketplace? Well, I had a migraine and had to miss the ornament exchange, so look who is sitting pretty on my tree? What are some of your favorite ornaments?
This was a pretty great week, where I am concerned! Last weekend was a busy one but so so much fun! My mom and her friends and I went to the Vintage Marketplace, got some Christmas shopping done, and then Sunday I went to Disneyland with Jamie and Eli. Ugh, so so much fun! This weekend was full of a busy work project, Christmas card designing, oooo-ing and ahhhh-ing over a friend's new 1920's engagement ring, new client meetings, and to top it off, house decorating with the husband last night. This is gonna be a good Christmas! Love to you all
