When I think of a favorite toy, I always think of my children and the movie Toy Story.  The birth of my babes are nicely spaced within the movie releases so that all of them have had different toys from this movie. I think we are the proud owners of at least 7 different Buzz Lightyears, including this very cool red white and blue one. The kids dressed as them for halloween. {I may have been Jessie that year, and Mike may have ran around with us wearing a sticker that said "My name is Andy"} I have comforters and blankets and curtains. It's quite an accumulation. When Jefferson came around, it was a no brainer for a Nursery room theme, because I could go shopping in the attic. His favorite toy is Rex. In my shot of the week, I used the toys Jefferson has been playing with held by Madison, because she is more cooperative and can finally take direction.

4/52 You're my Favorite Deputy

It was fun to see your toy blasts from the past and the great gadgets and gizmos that are indeed your favorite things.  Legos were a big hit and so was the Gorilla. Who knew the gorilla could hold a flash? Very cool.

What's NEW with Daphne Ellenburg?

I'm still trying to fight off the last leg of my cold. This cough will not go away. Grrrr. I asked Michael last night, "If I don't make it thru the cough, will you promise to keep the Kitchen clean?" He said yes, which means that I'm going to pull thru like a champ. 

Madison modeled for my Valentine mini set up. She's so cute with her missing front tooth. The other one is pretty wiggly now too.


Madison also made us very proud by winning the key student award that was presented by the Mayor. Here she is with the Mayor of Satsuma, Alabama.


My hot water was broken for almost 3 days this week. The only one that got a hot bath was Jefferson. No one else was willing to climb into my sink.


Jefferson has learned how to take off all his clothes and prefers to run around naked. It's so terrible. Here's a shot of me and my little nudist.


It snowed here yesterday. With this kind of blizzard, I'm surprised our town didn't completely shut down. This is the mass accumulation on my ride.


In the spring, I photograph a lot of beautiful dancers. This spring will be no different! I've got plenty of gorgeous tiny girls lined up. Here is my new marketing banner. It's a great outdoor banner perfect for tiny touches. I've got 2 different banners going up in each studio, to let people know we are coming soon!


And lastly, I debuted this great video to my client yesterday. I'm completely in love with it and so was she.

Wishing you a wonderful week filled with family fun and photography! Make it a great week!
