To Family. And expensive cameras.

We're in Alabama. Loving my family.

I know what you're thinking...
How in the heyday did they get all those lovely faces pointed in the same direction for such a fabulous photo? Answer: we didn't. My brother-in-law is a MacDaddy, and he cut and pasted entire heads with his Mac brilliance. Now you know our secret. The Sethinator.

So until I return on Monday, I will leave you with happy New Year wishes, the fun task of figuring out whose heads are fake, and 3 good reasons why I will pretend buy me a fancy pants camera on sale at Costco for Christmas '09.





I love my family.
And a good photo shoot in the hills of LalaBama.

Hi Cally! I haven't been making many blog visits lately (what a slacker I am!) -- but I had to come by and wish you a very happy, happy New Year! So glad you are enjoying time with your family.

Love the pictures with the new camera -- they are really beautiful!

Those pics are pretty great, I must say. We just did huge family pics over Christmas too, and I'll have to see if someone can photoshop Brody's face in where the top of his head is in all the shots... :) Fun to see all your sibs and the 'rents after so long too! I'm wondering who the man on the top left is and the couple in the back next to your dad...?

Me plus 3 Hecks said...

...also, can you pretend buy me a new camera too? :)

Corrie lives in Alabama now. JD and Melissa flew down from New York. The tall guy on the top left is Brian...Corrie's husband. The guy behind me is Cassy's husband Seth. The couple on the right is my older brother Brent and his wife Shari who drove from DC.

Seth got the awesome Nikon camera for Christmas, and graciously let me play with it. Dawn...Seth used a Mac program for the editing and colors...it wasn't photoshop; I'm not sure what it's called.

Andrea...I pretend bought you a Canon 50D today. It's pretend in the mail.

Wendy said...

I always love your pictures. Glad you are having a great time.

Happy New Year.

What a lovely bunch of people...I can't figure out which ones are fake. I decided it was going to take too much time, so I better stop. haha. I hope you have fun in my part of the country. :]

Ok so I had to remove my post because I spelt a word way wrong and I could not let all your bloggers in one my little secret!
I miss you and your family so bad I can't wait for summer to come so we can play in Beazer.
