Fortuitous Fotos Friday

Don't you love alliteration?

Ok, so, my camera has gone to that great photo booth in the sky. The official word is that the repair would cost almost as much as buying a new camera, and that Canons usually only last around 3 or 4 years anyway. Is anyone else aware of this little piece of information? Still, I like Canons, and more importantly, I already have some accessories and such that would fit another Canon. So, in short, I've decided to get another Canon, but a much cheaper one. If I'm going to be replacing it every three or four years, I'll not be buying the $350 model, thanks so much.

And all of this was to bring me to say that I've cleaned out some photos from just before my camera died and wanted to post a few here. These are from Christmas. Christmas in April! Yay!


Before mass on Christmas Eve. Notice that Jack is already untucked. Aren't my babies pretty though? I think I should have some more.

Oh, and you may be wondering why Kain is dressed like a cow. Well, that is simple. Our parish has a pageant on Christmas Eve. Kain was cow #2.




The church nativity after Christmas Eve mass.

Maria and Tess in new Christmas PJ's.

Tess didn't last long into the evening.



Our family New Year's Eve party. Jack missed most of it. Lightweight.


Happy New Year's girls!

Also, Fortuitous Fotos Friday will be an ongoing feature. When we were moving things around to make room for the piano, I found a stash of over a dozen rolls of film! Combined with film I've used in the last few weeks, I now have 15 rolls of film to be developed, and I have no idea what is on most of them. So, I'm having them developed a couple at a time and I'll post the fascinating results here!

mel...you are a blogging fool these days...love it! Maria and Tess look exactly alike. Who has the beautiful blue eyes...you or your husband?

mel said...

Oh, thank you, that would be me, hehe. The girls got mine, and Jack has John's hazel eyes.

Beautiful photos, beautiful kids! And, yes, pretty eyes! None of my three girls got their mommy's blue eyes...:) Look forward to seeing what's on those old rolls of film!

mel said...

Me too! I'm a little scared...I know at least one of those rolls has pictures that my mom took during Jack's birth...some are a little, erm,,,detailed. lol. I hope I don't get in trouble at the photo center, heh.
