Arlene and Family

Oh my.....please make the rain stop!!  I live in Southern California...we have a max tolerance level for rainy days of about 2 consecutive days.....especially rainy days like the ones we have right now!  I know, we're spoiled here....but that's also why my rent is so darn high too.  

Seriously though - it's been raining for almost a week straight now...we had a little break last Thursday, but other than that it just won't stop....I also do not own shoes fit for rain...my sneakers have been permanently wet for a couple days now and they kinda stink....gonna have to throw them in the wash after this rain lets up.

I was also late on going to decorate my son's grave site at the cemetery for Christmas....and now that it's raining so much, I still can't go...and it's not supposed to stop till Thursday I think....really bummed about that one.  :(

Let's see...is there anything else I can whine about??  LoL....I'm just feeling sorry for myself because I love my sunshiney days....this kind of weather gets me down...

On a brighter note though, I'm posting these pics below which were from the summer....really late I know...what's new.  :)  Here's the first post that I did when we first took the pics (http://averyjamesphotography.blogspot.com/2010/07/arlene-and-family.html)

Unfortunately So Cal had a really ugly summer this year....so even though it was July I think, it was really dark and cloudy at the beach.....but this awesome family brought along their musical instruments for some of their pictures and I absolutely love the way they turned out!  What a great idea! :) :)  

These are the pics the family chose, but when I have some time I want to go through them again and edit a few more because I have a couple other favorites from this session that didn't make their cut. :)

Drive safe all you Californians - I know we're not used to driving in this weather and I've already seen so many car accidents on the news!
