Winter break!

Well now that I'm on winter break, I have lots more free time. So something I'm really irritated about is that at the U of O (and I'm sure most other schools) when you get a (-) or a (+) on a grade, such as and A-, it drops (or adds for a +) your gpa 0.3 points! I haven't had a 4.0 gpa yet since i started college and I really thought I was finally going to get one this term, but I got an A- which is a 3.7! But my other A brought it up to 3.85, which is closer. I just think that is rediculous! An A is an A! Oh well, maybe next term.
My friend Erica came over yesterday to do a photo shoot, and it was lots of fun! I am really loving my camera and it is fun to try different things with it. Erica and her brother want to take pictures together and get them framed for their mom for Christmas, so we were doing a practice run with just her and it was pretty fun. Here are just a few of the many pictures we took:
Erica with my furry child Marvin.

Outfit number one!

Looking like a true model!

Close up mug shot in outfit number 2!

Oops! Caught her lovin the tree!

Erica's favorite hat!

I'm holding Erica's hat for her.

And back to seriousness, this
is a really pretty picture also!

And after uploading the dozens of pictures
and playing with the kodak program, we came
up with this lovely picture! Love it!

So there are so many more pictures but these are just some of the ones I like most. I have more to talk about but I will save it for another day!

Good job on the photo shoot! Erika looks stunning! Of course the best model is you holding her hat. ha ha! Too bad about the A thing. I think like you do. If you make straight A's you deserve to have a 4.0

Those last two photos are my favorites! Very cute. But I'm really infatuated with that babe wearing the loser-y cap over her eyes. What a hottie. Wish I could see those spectacular peepers.

Oh, and P.S. If you were me, you'd have a 4.0. But, well, you're not. You're you. So teachers knock points off your GPA just for that reason.

There's never a dull moment in your blogs! The pics of Erika are great. She is beautiful!
