Tonight we went down to the local children's shelter and donated a bunch of toys, books, and clothes. I want Kiah to learn and understand that there are a lot of children that are less fortunate than us. I know it is hard for someone his age to understand, but I get so tired of him being so materialistic. I want to start doing a different charitable cause each month with him.
Hopefully it will help to conteract some of the hold the advertising industry has on my son.

So in Downtown Willow Glen every December they have horse drawn carriage rides. For years (5 Years to be exact) I have been trying to get Chris to take me there for Christmas. Well this year I thought I was finally get my Christmas wish. After convincing Chris, Mom, Lin, Granny, and Kiah we had to go we made it down there in time to see the last carriage ride arriving back. At least we almost made it. We still had a fun time after Santa claimed we were all naughty including granny and made us all sit on his lap. Chris refused but still let me take a pic.

Before and after using Susan Suttle's sepia technique. I loved taking this workshop. I learned more in a few weeks then I did in years. Her videos made the lessons so easy. If you ever have a chance to take one of her workshops, I definately recommend it.
