It is so nice to be all cozy inside to night while listening to a real winter storm finally blow in! I am use to living with strong wind as Reno has some impressive winds that would and could blow your roof off. One time it even blew my kids large trampoline over a 6ft. fence! I hope that we have more storms on the way as I want some good water out on Lake Shasta this summer for wakeboarding. It’s not too low right now but when I was down at the river this week I noticed that they weren’t letting that much water out so they must be conserving the water hoping we will get a good couple of storms to fill the lake up. I took our kids snowboarding last week to Shasta and there was barely enough snow to board on but they still had fun.
We have been busy looking for a home to buy here in Redding. We have made 7 offers on different houses and for one reason or another each house hasn’t worked out. It was getting a little frustrating until our realtor called last week to say our favorite house had fallen out of escrow!! We are so excited for a second chance at this home and took our kids over to see it today. We hadn’t been inside it since last November so it was good to see it again and refresh our memories. It’s still just as perfect as it was the first time! We are hoping everything will go smoothly with this home and we should be in our new place in a few months. After 11 moves in 13 years of marriage, I am ready to make our 12th move into our permanent home. We plan on sticking around here for awhile!
Here is a family session I did the day after Christmas. The “C” Family contacted me because their son was home for the holiday break so they wanted to have family portraits done while he was home. They were a great family to work with and it was so nice to have young adults for once who wouldn’t run away from me or make me do a silly face when I needed a smile. I love the children I photograph but they sure do make me work sometimes! I really enjoyed talking to this family. They have always lived in the little town of Tehama. I haven’t been there but one of these times on my way to Chico I am going to drive through to check out it out!
