American Thanksgiving was Thursday but I got to savour the prospect of proper mashed potatoes for another 2 days until Saturday. Nicola always likes to make a fuss of Thanksgiving by getting into the spirit and making great homemade goodies fit for the tables across the pond. This year was no exception and we even made it a whole family occasion with Mum and Dad, Karen and Malcolm and Josh and even Buster coming over. Of course it wasn’t entirely like the Thanksgivings I remember. There was no buttery bread rolls….and I didn’t see a single game of American Football on TV…and taking a break before pudding (yummy pumpkin pie) so the girls can watch X-Factor never seemed to happen at my house either. But then I suppose you have to create your own traditions huh…
Speaking of mashed potatoes…
Cheeky…like Jaime Oliver
“I think we need more butter mummy!”
“Are you sure we don’t need more milk?”
and whilst he thought no one was looking
Finger licking good…just like the Colonel
And now for a bit of reblog…what one earth is a reblog. Well, I’ve always loved blogging on Mondays after the wedding. Problem is that you have to decide what you are going to show based on a few small thumbails. Then, once you start working on the files you find 2 or three which probably would have been better suited. Its the trade-off of doing instant blogging. Whilst I could do this for every wedding (and for both last weekend) I won’t…I will, instead, do it for just last Friday’s. A small sample…
In my opinion a far better ceremony shot than the one I posted. I love that room!
As I said, no flash allowed in the tapestry room at Clandon Park…I like this better anyway!

Back in March of 2005 my wife and I had a wonderful little boy…Evan. The transition from husband to dad and husband was more daunting than I first thought. I needed an outlet and perhaps a way to share my thoughts and feelings about Evan with my family back home in America. So, when E was 3 weeks old I started blogging. Originally it was a hidden link but after 5 months I moved the blog to the top level of my website. I took the decision to make the blog more than just an Evan diary by posting sneak preview images from recent weddings and from that I now have the hybrid blog. A chance for you to read about Evan and his antics and see some great wedding images. NOW!!!! The images I select to show for weddings aren’t always the best. Sometimes they just tell a story or have a quirky character that I like (and hopefully you do too). I hope you enjoy your visit and look forward to seeing you again soon. Go on…bookmark this page. You know you want to!
