It was the coldest day... ever. Several degrees below zero with 30 below wind chills. The wind was so strong it rattled the windows throughout the day. I don't even want to know what the utility bill will be, the furnace seemed to be going constantly.

After dinner, I called the girls downstairs to practice. Although it was pure excitement for them when I asked who wanted their picture taken, when it came down to it, I only had one willing participant.

Her name is Nina. She's about a year old. We got her last weekend from the shelter. She's a Russian Blue mix and has the most gorgeous amber colored eyes. There is a bit of white on her chest and a little on the tip of her tail. I like my willing participant.

It snowed a good 12 inches last night. The snow plow came through and it's as high as the top of our mailbox. I want to get out there and get some pics of the kids playing, but Brianna has been sick the past few days. We are supposed to get more tomorrow night. We will, without a doubt, have a white Christmas.

So instead, I resorted to some editing of pictures I took a week ago. Here's one taken in the studio with the black backdrop. I'm loving this backdrop. Looking forward to getting a grey seamless paper... someday!
