I love the holidays! Cree and I arrived home late last night from Kansas City. Our normal 12 hour drive turned into 15, but it was worth it. A wonderful thanksgiving. We have so much to be grateful for.

One thing I love about going home is you're never quite sure what will be on the family agenda. This time, mom surprised us with an evening of shadow puppets. We each took turns making our own shadows. We laughed till our sides hurt. Who knew shadow puppets could be so much fun? and so affordable. We love free fun.

I think we might have to copy and host another shadow party at our house!

PS. We are selling some camera equipment over on ebay. A Nikon D70 with lenses and a Mamiya RB67 with lots of extras (and a lens). They are beautiful cameras and in great condition...just trying to simplify and consolidate.

  18. darling idea! Your mom is awesome!

    Question... why on earth are you selling your RB!? It takes the most wonderful polaroids! (I have the RZ) http://www.kjrstenmadsenblog.com/2011/11/night-of-hallows.html
    Consider, if you will, getting the polaroid back and some fuji 3000b! I would love to see you create some beauty with that set-up!
