Kelsie & Dave. Trash the Dress! Part I

Kelsie & Dave have been married for 4 1/2 years now, but have been together since...JR. HIGH!!! I don't know any couple that goes back that far, so kudos to you guys! Kelsie even finished college in 3 years just because her mom had told her she couldn't marry Dave until she was done with school. Talk about motivation.

Alright, enough talk. More pictures!

Kelsie & Dave. Couples Session.

Kelsie is an amazing wedding & portrait photographer I met when I moved over here. We had talked about how we're always taking pictures of other couples to put on their walls, but neither of us had any with our husbands. So we put an end to that by trading sessions and dragging our poor husbands along for the ride!

So begins the session with Kelsie & Dave.

Amy Boudoir

Amy and I had such a blast during her boudoir shoot! You wouldn't know it from the pictures, but Amy is hilariously funny, but apparently she can also easily pull off being super hot.

Grandma-ma's BIG 100!!!

That's right folks! My grandma turned 100 on October 25th and Drew & I were lucky enough to be there along with about 100 other family members to celebrate it with her! :)

Here's where the 100 family members comes from:
My grandma had 9 kids.
Those 9 kids produced at least 26 grandkids altogether (I'm not too sure b/c there a few aunts & uncles that I've never met who have passed).
And out of those 26 grandkids are a bunch of great grandkids that are just way too many for me to sit here & count.

The cake candles say 101 because in Chinese, you're already a year old the day you're born.

For her birthday, the whole family went to a Chinese restaurant where she got to eat one of her favorite foods: crab.

Drew also got to eat some of his favorites as well. Heh heh heh.
Photobucket

Yeah, that's a chicken head.
Photobucket
No, he didn't really eat it.

For being 100, she's still quite spritely at times. Her memory's still pretty good for her age, though it's been so long since she's seen me that she's forgotten who I am already! But she remembers relatives in Houston whom she sees more often. At least she knows I'm a family member somehow though. I came to this conclusion when I was standing next to Drew and she asked, "Who's that guy?" - but she never asked who I was.

Here's my grandma, clapping along while we all sang happy birthday to her.

She's so cute!

My uncle (who I think looks a little like Jackie Chan) always helps her blow out the candles.

And my cousin Danny cut the cake b/c it was also his birthday, but it always gets overshadowed by my grandma's. So this year, we sang happy birthday twice. :)

Happy 100th Grandma!!!

Bats in the City?

Drew & I went to Houston a couple of weeks ago and my cousin Vicki took us to see bats on the bayou. I thought this was going to be off on the outskirts of Houston somewhere, but no. It was right next to Downtown! We were in the middle of the city & there's this HUGE bat colony that lives there. It was SOOOO COOOOL!!!

Me & Vic, happily waiting for our little bat friends to come out for dinner.
Photobucket

Dinner time kids!
Photobucket

There's millions of them and it seems like they kept on coming out from under that bridge.
Photobucket

It's interesting how they all fly on this one path.
Photobucket

Must be some yummy eats to the left there.
Photobucket

Most awesome!
