I’m interrupting my current series of fall family photo blog posts for a quick kick-off to the Christmas season. I had a lovely time with great friends on Friday night when we visited the Winterlights display at Newfields here in Indianapolis. These photos aren’t perfect (I chose to be a bit more present and wasn’t going to deal with a tripod for optimal photos), but the beauty of the evening was worth documenting. I hope you enjoy and I wish you a very merry Christmas season!
¡Bienvenido al mundo, Andrés!
El mes pasado, tuve un tiempo muy especial cuando conocí este bebe tan adorable de tan solo diez días de edad. Andrés es el nuevo miembro de mi familia favorita nicaragüense, que viven aquí en Indianápolis. Sus hijos asistieron a la escuela donde yo enseño. Es siempre divertido compartir con ellos y poder ponernos al día cuando ellos vienen a eventos de la escuela y tengo la oportunidad de hablar mi español centroamericano con ellos. Andrés tiene tres adorables hermanos mayores y dos padres trabajadores a quien admirar y seguir mientras crece. ¡Espero disfruten estas fotos!
I had such a wonderful time meeting this adorable little guy when he was about ten days old last month. Andres is the newest member of my favorite Nicaraguan family who happen to live here in Indianapolis. Their children have attended the school where I teach. It’s always fun to catch up with them when they come to events at the school and to get a chance to speak my Central American Spanish with them. 🙂 Andres has three wonderful older siblings and two hard-working parents to look up to as he grows up! I hope you enjoy these photos!
Katy, Alan, and Jonah: Visiting from Cambodia
You may remember these friends as the great people who helped show me around the beautiful country of Cambodia this past summer, from Angkor Wat to Battambang to Phnom Penh and Kep (photos of that are still to come). Well, their family has since grown from this back in June:
They came home to the U.S. for Christmas and I had a great time catching up with them on a chilly Indianapolis day. The weather didn’t cooperate much for an outdoor photoshoot, but we had fun nonetheless. 🙂
Here are a few more fun shots from our time at the beginning of this month. Enjoy!
Mass Ave Toys was a great place to warm up and check out some fun toys. This little guy was very intent in checking out the world, with his fingers getting pretty close to pointing to the place where he was born… it’s like he knew. 🙂
Monday was a dreary, foggy day here in Indianapolis. When I got home Monday night, I was struck by the way the street and parking lot lights were reflecting on the trees and in the fog and had to take some pictures.
Here are a few of my favorites:
