I'm a full-time wife and mom of two adorable boys. When I'm not busy trying to keep up with them I enjoy photography, traveling, planning parties and a little bit of reading.

In February of 2008 I was diagnosed with an incurable terminal lung illness, though God promised me a full and complete healing. While we wait for His timing, we're taking it one day at a time, and standing in awe of how God's using all of this for His glory. The tough road we've traveled has given us a new perspective on the fragility of life. Memories are more important to us than ever before. The goal of this blog is to share some of our family life - the ups and downs, the joys and probably some of the pains as well. It's mostly meant as a personal journal of sorts, but you're welcome to share in it. We'd like to take this opportunity to say ...

Christmas Photo

I've gotten several requests to see the Christmas photo of the boys. You remember, the one that was sitting on the table earlier today, ready to be stuffed into Christmas cards. Well, for your "ooh-ing and aah-ing" pleasure, here are the Feitner boys.

The picture's not the greatest ... but I think we took 93 pictures, and it was the best. You don't believe me? Well, here are some of the out-takes. (If you really wanna get up-close and personal, click on a picture to make it bigger.)

"I'm smarter than the camera flash - I'll just keep my eyes shut tight so I won't have to see the bright light."

"What, there's no flash? You tricked me. Grrrrr."

"Look, Dad. I have a nose - and it's squishy!"

"Aaaaaaand it's a wrap. If you need me I'll be in my trailer talking to my agent."

"What do you mean? I am smiling."

Alex decided that he looked better in the Santa hat than Harrison. So, he grabbed the hat and threw it.
(That's the white blur on the bottom left.)

"La - la - la - la - I can't hear you!"

"Seriously .... Are we done yet????"

And so the defense rests. The one that's in the mail right now was the best we could get. I love taking pictures of our kids. But why is it that when the photo really matters it's sooooo hard to get a good one?
