Teasers of the Martin Family Christmas Photo

Here are couple photos in prep for the Martin's Christmas Photo.
It's not easy getting a good photo, when one of the subjects is in continual motion! 
 That was Nathan.

More Martins

This is for Ryan, Kelly and Rachel....We missed you!!!

After the feast!
Relaxing until dessert.
Grandpa craved the turkey for us this year again, thanks dad!  Here he is gathering his plate of food.
Here is most of the food.
22lb. Bird, not easy to lift.

Martin Photo Session-Painless

Amber asked me to take a few photos for their Christmas Card.  It was really pretty lighting and we got some good shots.  I like this one of Nathan with Amber in the back round.

The stork dropping Nathan off from Heaven.
Nathan loved being tossed in the air by Kevin.  Amber looks a little worried in this shot.  I think Nathan could have done this all day long.

Volleyball Day & Nathan & Fog & Sun

At our home it was HOT and SUNNY.  When we got to the Beach it was FOGGY and COLD.  It didn't last long.  I had forgotten Nathan's jacket, so he is wearing mine.  He sat here just watching for a long time.  It was very unlike him.  He is pretty much on the go all the time.  It might have been the sand that kept him sitting.  Who knows?
Here are some of my VB buddies playing in the FOG.  I don't think Kim's serve made it over the net.   Nathan here below happily watching the action, which he loves.  I know,  I've asked him if he likes watching VB.  He always says yes, which he says to just about everything.

Beach Day

When we first got to the beach it was so foggy, you couldn't see the ocean from the top of the Knob Hill steps.  It did warm up though.

Where's Becca?
Beach wonder
Go Nathan!

Beach Day in November

Nathan ready to play Beach V-Ball, oops I put this picture in twice.  
He wasn't  too sure of those loud waves, and the water was cold.
Hanging on to Grandma.  I'm loving the attention.   
Getting ready to head home for nap time!
Checking out the pretzel in his special grab-it cup.  He usually has fishy crackers which he loves.

Play Ball

Did I mention Nathan loves Balls....any kind.  These are pictures I took of him last week when I watched him.  I have Nathan for more days this week and have really had fun with him at the park, playing outside and of course playing ball.  He really likes the volleyball, I wonder why?  Rebecca has been teaching him how to block, spike and set.

I'm cute

Nathan striking a pose with Rebecca.  Rebecca had one of her best games.  She got 2 ace serves in a row and another serve point.  Three in a row.  She got lots of great sets, saves and one great hit.

Last VB game for Rebecca's season

Rebecca setting the ball.  If you double click this photo, you can see Rebecca's feet off the ground.  
Rebecca's biggest fan.  Nathan got hit by a spike.  It hit his knee.  It surprised him, there was a delayed cry.  He was fine.  Everyone felt bad for him.  His Grandma isn't quick enough to stop these hits sometimes.
Rebecca's Fresh/Soph team with the #1 fan Nathan.

Nathan watching his favorite player #4, Rebecca.

Spooky Spider Family

Kevin, Amber and Nathan on Halloween night.
Nathan found a treat!
I really like the fabric Amber got at JoAnn's.  Simple costume idea.  Buy a couple yards of web fabric and cut a slit in the center of it.  Your now a web!

More Halloween Fun!

Spider in action

Nathan found his web.

Prop 8 Door Hangers

Getting organized with a bunch of addresses and door hangers to get to the doors of Redondo Beach Voters.  Don't forget to vote this Tuesday!  Yes on Prop 8.  
Thank goodness Scott is good with addresses.  We had fun in some winding streets and lots of hills and steps.  I'm not complaining.  Just a bit sore!
We had good weather, only a few drops of rain.  Beautiful fall day.

Happy Halloween!

Nathan was a spider and came by to visit with his mom and dad.  Rebecca had a VB tournament for the Varsity she had to go to.  It was her 1st Halloween not trick or treating.  It was a quite night.  We had a fair share of trick or treater's.  Becca was a 80's aroboics instructor.  She looked really cute.
Can you guess who Sandi and Matt are this year?

Clue....."The Office"


Clue......Assistant to the Regional Manager

OK.......Give Up......

Angela and Dwight Shrute

They had fun with it, and we thought it was great.

Spider Nathan with Grandpa.  He had a fun night trunk or treating with Torr. 2nd ward.  Heard they had lots of fun decorated cars.  I hear too...Nathan likes suckers.  He learned about candy this Halloween.  That darn sugar thing.
