Thanksgiving cards

This time of year is getting busier, but it’s not as hectic as December.  For the past two years, I have sent out Thanksgiving cards.  They are two-sided.  One with a picture of the boys {or family} on our yearly family vacation and the other side with either another fun family photo {or a picture […]

Getting “high” in New Mexico

30-second wonder

At animoto today, I created almost effortlessly this cute video of our recent vacation. These 30-second shorts are free, but if you want to create longer features, you’ll have to shell out a few dollars.  It’s all quite reasonable.   Check out the photos; it’ll only take you 30-seconds. Enjoy. SPL
