Happy New Year!!!

January 3, 2009

Well it is officially January 3rd, 2009! I can’t believe it. Happy New Year! Over the Holidays I tried to be as productive as I could be and at the same time rest and relax before school starts back again. I normally do not take too many pictures over the break, but I did this time. I practiced with some lighting on my dad’s friends, I went to Cades Cove at sunrise, and I went to my grandparents house in Big Stone Gap Virginia. It was a jam packed Christmas break this year, but a fun one.

Visiting my grandparents every year is always an adventure and there are certain things I will always remember. This year I decided to try and capture the small things I see every year, things I have seen since I was probably 2 years old. I know it sounds weird, but I know there will be a day when plans change or I have Christmas at my home, and I don’t want to ever forget what makes Christmas so special at my grandparents house.


My grandmother collects teapots. She loves all kinds of teapots, and every time I go to Virginia I see a different one.


My grandmother also collects perfume bottles.


And, she collects porcelain baby dolls.


This is my lovely grandmother, Kathleen Gillespie.


This is my very sweet grandfather, Paul Bentle Gillespie. We call him P.B. though.

The Winter Wonderland figurine house

It is crazy how you can see the same things every year and not think twice about it, but for some reason this year I really wanted to make sure I have the chance to remember those memories when I am older. I hope everyone had a great Christmas and has a wonderful start to the New Year!
