Sunday's are busy at the Donleys

 Sundays are a day of rest in most homes- but in my home it WEARS ME OUT!
 All of the running and jumping and yelling (at the TV) takes a toll on ya!
 But we LOVE our Panthers, and show our support win or lose.
 This particular Sunday we were SO hot that Harper thought she needed some shades!

A Beach Wedding

Amber and Weston got married in October at the Outer Banks. We took an extra day off and spent some time sightseeing as a family. It was a little cold but you always have to see the ocean when you're at the beach!


 I can't wait to take the kids next summer for the family trip- they are so excited to swim in the ocean!

 Devin walked Amber down the aisle and the kids and I got to be front row guests.


 We went to the Wrights Brothers Museum and Monument; and to the Currituck Lighthouse.
These pictures aren't great, but the ones on the Nikon turned out BEAUTIFULLY!

Over a month with no blogging.....

So I took a bit longer hiatus than expected...but I am back... I am excited...and I want to get back to documenting our family memories on the blog!
See.... we're still the same!
 It's gotten cold here...like 30's and 40's cold!!!
 Harper's been working on her Wish List for Christmas and here is yet another shameless plug to Daddy.... I WANT A HELLO KITTY COUPE!!!!!!

  Trying on some accessories while shopping!
So this post was mainly to get back into the swing of things...it even took me a second to remember how to upload the pictures- YIKES!

Where has the time gone??!!!

I have so many pictures to upload, so many stories, and Chathamisms and Harperisms..... I haven't blogged in SO long. I will be getting back into the swing of it soon- I promise! If you're still out there looking for me don't give up! HAHA

Check this out!!!

So, first you need to know....I was recently approached by Easy Canvas Prints and offered a free 11″ x 14″ stretched canvas print of one of my photos in exchange for posting a review of their prints and service. THEN... they offered a second free 11" x 14" canvas if I give you all easy access with buttons on my blog to their site- WELL OF COURSE!!!
 Any one who has been in my living room knows I am no stranger to the world of canvas prints. I have not however used Easy Canvas Prints until this time. I have always used 8 x 10 mother's day freebies; or discounts from friends who ordered a canvas and get a 75% off coupon... BUT... I must say that my Easy Canvas Prints had the easiest order and the best shipping. I got one print right away within the week I ordered it. The second one took a bit longer (but for good reason) I used a picture off my facebook page and it wasn't great quality- so I got an email from the art department asking for a bigger file- the one I sent next still didn't look great- I LOVE that they are looking for things like that! I have received pixalated (is that a word?!?) pictures from other companies.
I obviously am working at a much slower pace than Easy Canvas Print- because I haven't even hung them up yet. They quality is AMAZING- my favorite part of the picture on the right is that they capture the BRIGHT colors in Harper's shoes!!! I can't wait for Christmas and hope that Santa knows that Easy Canvas Print is on my wish list!!!
So...what do you do now-- go to the buttons on the top right of my blog and order your own canvas!!
