The Groom and his Men.

A very very sneakky peak into the Cuba Wedding! I cannot take credit for these two photos though, my wonderful "second shooter" or Hubby took these for me.  Together we took over 1500 photos and now I have the task of sorting through and finding the "best" ones.  WOW!! They are such a FUN and wonderful couple who are clearly in LOVE that it's going to be no easy task.  
Thanks BOB for being there to help!!

Lest We Forget!

I was driving downtown Strathmore today and noticed the Legion had this wonderful tribute on their lawn/snow front.  I don't know any of these fallen heros personally but found it quite moving that this tribute was put on.  I will not be in Canada on November 11th so I thought I'd dedicate my post today to all those who have fought, stood up for us, and paid the ultimate price for our Country. We are very fortunate to live in a wonderful country.
On a personal note I'd like to say a big THANK YOU to my husbands brothers who have done many many tours in various countries. They have stood up and said "we'll protect you today!"
Thank You Uncles Dale & Jason!!!

Sleeping Beauties

Everyone has a "comfy" place to fall asleep, the couch, the chair, a bed, or in Ely's case it's on DAD!! It's been a habit that started 5yrs ago when she was just an itty bitty baby ( and she really was itty bitty at 1lb 2oz ) When she was sick Dad would hold her and cuddle her and she would just cuddle in.  I'm not sure this habit will ever "stop" and part of me hopes it doesn't. It's nice to see!! (don't tell them though cause I've got a reputation to keep :() )

Wrong way on a one way!

This fella gave new meaning to going "the wrong way on a one way!" I'm not sure if he didn't like what he saw at the end or just wanted to back to the pens, either way it took a few people to get him going the way he was supposed to.

What a location!

This little cabin/house sits at the base of the coulees along hwy 27 East. I finally remembered to stop and snap some photos of it today on our way home to Strathmore. It's in such a wonderful location, protected by these majestic coulees and stubble fields. My girls tell me each time we go through this canyon that the dinosaurs are burried here! LOL. 

Olds Roping

Friday night I went to Olds to a Team Roping. My sister was catering this event and has asked me to help her out this winter for this series which is put on by Rocky Ross.  Well the concession was not quite as busy as we had hoped so I started wandering around with my camera. I know one thing, these horses, steers and ropers are a patient bunch. LOL. 
Wish they'd hurry up

Is it my turn yet?

Frosty Weekend

I've always loved old homesteads and black and white photos!! Put the two together and you have a majestic photo. (or at least that's my opinion)  I photographed this old barn before in the summer time and I just had to stop the other day on the way to the farm to capture it in the snow, fog and frost.

When will it end???

I sure hope those weather people are correct and that this weekend there'll be SUN!!!! Cause I tell ya I'm about tired of all  this FOG!!!!! I forget what the sky looks like or heck what the neighbours house looks like.
