Christmas printables

I felt a need to make some new downloadable prints because my "Boo" printable is still hanging on my wall... behind my Christmas tree. :) True story.  So I need to change that soon, it really clashes with the Christmas decor!  I made up some rather simple printables in several different styles.

Here is the link to download each via Goggle docs if you find one that fits your style :)
All are 8x10 inches

Oh Holy Night
Peace on Earth
Joy to the World
Holly Jolly
Merry & Bright

FYI - The first two files are larger and Google docs doesn't show a preview

{the Skillmans} photos

My friends Katelyn & Miles wanted some pictures for a Christmas card this year, so they asked me to take some.  They are such an adorable couple so of course their pictures turned out amazing! We went to a park and found the perfect little field, and Katelyn had also brought some props of her own like an antique chair, quilt, & mugs! Check out these cuties:

Have a happy Thanksgiving week!

Recent life in pictures {fall}

Recently I rented a lens for my camera, the 50mm 1.4, which I have rented in the past.  I love this lens and I'm hoping to save up to buy it myself someday soon!  I read a lot of photography blogs to try and sharpen my picture taking skills, and several photographers have listed this lens as a favorite of theirs, or at least one they keep in their stash!  It takes such sharp photos and provides a nice bokeh background when the f stop is set low.  I like editing pictures in Photoshop too, but I definitely know that's an area I could use some improvement {what I would do to have a professional watch me and tell me what I'm doing wrong}!
Anyway... here's some recent photos I've taken...

Saturday morning special...
This is not a bad hair day for Lola... this is a normal hair day.

Relaxing on the Saturday mornings... a favorite in the Champ household.

And then came Halloween and I had to get some pictures of my little neice, the "Laineybug"

Getting candy from the grandparents.

Her antennas :)

Clark Kent also paid a visit to his grandparents.

Discussing their flying tricks.

Saving the world, or at least Metropolis.

Then last weekend, I got together with my sister and Lainey to take some fall pictures...
Adorable, right?

I knew she would love using my teddy bear as a prop!

Love this one.

Fun on the swings.
That's all for now... :)
