Skippy Shoot

The other day Chris was experimenting with his camera gear. Our dog was his hot model for the night. Skippy wasn't so sure about it all until I brought treats out and then he was good to go. I don't think there is anything that dog wouldn't do for a treat!

Things you hear around our house...

It's 10:47pm. I'm in the office in the front of the house, and Johnna is in the living room in the back of the house playing on the laptop. She hears a strange noise in the house and not knowing where in the house I am asks "Sweetie, are you trying to be a ninja again?"

Momma's in town

We met up with my mom and Dallas and Ashley for dinner tonight at Rubios. There is this business park behind there so we went and played with the camera a little bit after dinner. I like this new collage thing that Picasa does.

Portrait Fun

Chris had a couple photo shoots up in Pinetop this weekend. This seems to be a recurring theme this summer. It's been really nice to get out of the heat/city and get paid to do it at the same time.

One day we decided we could all use some new facebook profile pictures. Here's the results:

The Name

Chris and I have come to a FINAL decision on our baby boys name.
It will be:

Crew Christopher Paxman

My Mothers response to this was, "it's better than that Gaylord name you had chosen out." We did not actually have the name 'Gaylord' on our list. . . but I got the gist of what she must have thought of that other name. Glad she approves of Crew at least.

Chris actually gets the credit for finding the name. One Saturday morning he volunteered cleaning up around the temple grounds. He ended up working next to a guy who brought his little boy named Crew with him. Chris really liked that name and when he told me, I really loved it too. Seriously! He comes up with one name and I had a list of seventy. . . go figure.

We are happy to have a name chosen now but it is still a little surreal.

A couple weeks ago Chris began telecommuting for work. He gets to roll out of bed and walk a few steps to our office and plug away on the computer.

After a few hours his eyes start to look like this:

Since I am also at home we have been seeing a whole LOT of each other. I couldn't wait for him to be able to telecommute for work. So far, I still think it's pretty awesome. Chris on the other hand is just looking for a good reason to go back to work at the office. I know when I'm bugging him too much when he starts asking if I'm tired and if I've had my nap yet today.

Being cooped up in the house all day can make you a little loony. The other day we took a field trip to see a movie at the Imax theater and Chris came home with these goofy 3D glasses that he wore for the next two days off and on.

Pinetop Weekend

Last weekend Chris had a wedding shoot up in Snowflake. We were glad to have a wedding that wasn't in Mesa so we could get out of the heat. We had fun golfing, helping Bradly with his back flips and eating at Darbie's.

Chris, Bradly and Sherrie.

Chris was excited to give the back flip belt a whirl. He tried it on. . . Well, tried to try it on. Sadly it didn't fit him so no back flips for him.
