Friday Night Hamster Shoots :)

I am convinced that Hamsters... and the perfect photographic companion.
Perhaps I'm biast and I'm letting Hampton sway my assertion, but here are some fun things I've done with him lately :)



Apple?
This is cute :), I said Apple, and he stood up like this and started to sniff. It was almost like he understood me. :)


Documentation of his escape:

The Great Escape

Capture of his thwarted escape after catching him...


Getting Daddy to Visit
Making Animals speak with word bubbles is always cute/entertaining :)


and then, most of all, using Hampton to perpetuate my love for UNC basketball!
Stoked about NCAA B-Ball season Hamster after my own heart.

Christmas at my Apartment

My sister LOVED Christmas.
In fact, that was one of the few holidays that my sister, mooma and me all spent together.

So here's a little sampling of Christmas in my apartment.



Holiday cookie time :)
An exercise in culinary arts... :) The dreaded candy cane cookies :)

christmas ball
My little tree I bought from Target. Every year the day after Christmas I log onto Potterybarn.com and buy ornaments. The gold balls are from 2008 :)

Of course, it wouldn't be christmas at my house without Darth Vader :)

I'll be spending the Holdiays in Korea with my Mooma this year and Hampton, will be with his Hammy-sitters, the Weinzierls.

I love this time of the year.

Lakewood in Winter

There is this wonderful cemetary in Minneapolis by Lake Calhoun.

Oddly instead of being wierd, I felt like it was a place of love. That these were memorials for people to give the loved ones left behind a place to go when they were thinking of them.
