Worth 1,100,000 Words?

Kim and I gathered up all our memory cards and spent a couple of hours at the self service photo machines in the local Walmart a couple of weeks ago. The above picture shows the result; around 1100 photos of our China trip. This includes very few duplicates of the 300 we printed shortly after coming home, and then there are over 300 from the other camera that are still in digital limbo! In total, we took around 2,000 images on the trip. For reference, that is a 12 ounce bottle of Sprite to put the size of the stack in perspective. The staff in the photo center were very happy to when Kim returned the next day to collect them!

So, if a picture really is worth 1,000 words..........

First Halloween - World's Cutest Ladybug!

Miaya had her first Halloween experience, and a mixed one it was. Thursday afternoon, she got sick at daycare, and had a very unpleasant evening. She was steadily better on Friday, and did get to go to a Aunt Katie's and the Fire Station for Trick or Treating. She wore her costume earlier in the week at school and was a big hit with everyone.

Getting ready to go!
