Hello. My blogging momentum has taken a little dip for the time being as I've been so busy and got even busier recently doing overtime to make up for missing last Friday (my aunt was visiting from the States) and this coming Friday (we're going out of town). Still incredibly busy, but I just had to share these pics from our company Christmas party last year (I just got to see them). Anyway, I'm so glad I got copies of these since I hardly have any pics from that night (Marguerite got to take home a printed copy of a photo booth shot of her and the other kids at the party, and Mark got to take a few pics of the baby, and that's about it...).
Johan Sy, a colleague of ours, took these. I'm not sure if I recall right, but I think he specializes in children's portraits. He's definitely great with kids from what I observed that night. Anyway, Marguerite's are particularly beautiful as you can see. And I love the shot of her kissing her baby brother! Precious! You can see some more of Johan's work here: http://studiyo.wordpress.com/
While I'm at it, I might as well share this recent (as in just a few minutes ago) exchange between Marguerite and myself.
Marguerite: Yesterday I got to see the most famous movie ever!
Me, curiously: Which movie is that?
Marguerite, with awe in her voice: Tinkerbell and the Lost Treasure.
Me, getting increasingly amazed as the exchange progressed (first, I wasn't aware that M knew the word "famous" and that that movie was considered - by her anyway - famous...): Oh, really? How did you like it?
Marguerite: It brought tears to my eyes.
What the...? I don't think I expressed myself similarly at 5. That definitely didn't come from Mark either, unless he was chattier and more melodramatic as a kid...
