I have a wedding to photograph tomorrow! Britni and Ryan are getting married at the Frazier building tomorrow night at 6:30 and I get to photograph it! And like the title says, I'm so excited! I just got home from the rehearsal and wanted to share the couple that has my lens wrapped around them all day tomorrow.
Check back late for the wedding sneak peek.

Last night we celebrated Ida Lee's 93rd birthday at the 50 Yard Line in Lubbock. The family all gathered together, minus Davida (we missed you!) and had a wonderful time together.
Ida Lee's 92nd Birthday
I included that link so you could see how things have changed in a year. Mainly in the kids, because Ida Lee looks the same! Amazing! I think many refer to her as THE ROCK and I beginning to think that's totally what she's made of to have lasted this long on God's Earth.
We love you Ida Lee! I'll uploading pictures to my lab right now for you to have and take to quilting next week.
On a side note, the pictures here are not that "bueno", due to me thinking 4 bloody mary's might be good. LOL But I had to include these two precious images of Garett and Kate. I sat next to him at dinner and Kate crawled up on his lap and he started singing in her ear. It was so sweet. He had no idea I could hear him, let alone think I was taking pictures! I really would have loved to use my flash, but was afraid he would stop singing to her. Such a great moment.
On to the photos!
I don't know about your kids, blog readers, but mine are addicted to the Electronic Age we live in. How's this for available light. Kalyn in the back seat of my Yukon playing her Nintendo DS.
Choice of wine for the evening. I had a sip and yes it was very yummy.
The wonderful cake Aunt Barbara made. We gave up sweets for lent, my little family and we were so looking forward to eating cake today! We ALWAYS make an exception for Ida Lee's Birthday. LOL It didn't disappoint!
Ida Lee will HATE this pictures. But the "family paparazzi" were fighting for best angle and position.
The Annual Grandkids and Great-Grandma shot! So much fun!
Here we go! The candle lighting takes a bit and we needed all the helping hands we could get. LOL
Okay, I absolutely ADORE this shot! Check out Dalton going through the motions with his mouth too. So much fun!
Happy Birthday, Ida Lee!

"We were in it at halftime and I was proud of the way we played defensively" Hilliard said. "I thought we needed to be more aggressive offensively and we weren't able to get untracked. They were able to shut down April in the third quarter and we knew that was coming ... and we didn't have anybody offensively step up." Coach Hillard, February 23, 2008.
My heart is hurting for the Cooper girls, and especially for April. She's a fierce competitor and a girl that can't stand to ride the bench. I get that. She makes things happen. She creates space where no space is and puts the ball in the net. I love watching her play!
Cooper lost last night to Canyon and I've tried to write this blog post all day, but it's hard, because the hurt is still there. You hurt for these girls that poured their heart and souls into this team, and for the parents that did, too. You so wish it could have ended differently.
I know many of you have emailed me, stopped me and given me hugs, pats on the back, etc. for giving of my time to this team in their last few weeks of their season, and in their trek to state. This team, and parent's are more than welcome. By giving to this team, I'm filled with so much gratitude to the fans, the families, but to MOST of all, these girls. They quickly stole my heart with their love of the sport and I'm so grateful I had this chance to document it for them.
Last post for the Lady Pirates.

Kalyn, Stephanie, Boo and I, hit the courts last night to photograph Cooper take on Argyle. We arrived early to get our press credentials and settled in to watch Canyon beat Levelland. Tension quickly rose though! Good Golly I was so nervous! How am I ever going to do this for my own child? I'm thinking meditation and lots of drinking. (totally teasing Kalyn.)
Enjoy everyone! And we will see you tonight!
Oh, I uploaded some shots to facebook too, so go and tag yourself!
