James birthday party was a great success! We had a lot of fun in the backyard with friends and family! He made out like a bandit too! Lucky kid! Since I was the hostess I was only able to snap this and about 5 other shots...thats it! :0( I am far more productive at other people's parties! ;}

the whole ensemble

this was an early gift for James, whose birthday is Monday but the celebration starts tomorrow (Sun) with a family party, then continues on Monday with a party at school with all his schoolmates. ;0)
Is he four already!? And are we really married 5 years today??! Time flies...literally 5 years to the day, Saturday Aug 23rd, we were married here in San Jose, 10:00
Wish I had all family and friends once again gathered here, all in one was a great day.
But now we are all a bit older, hopefully a touch wiser with new babies, jobs, homes, gray hairs, and god willing many more healthy years ahead. Love to you all.
S & the booooooooooy-za

weekend fun

we spent Saturday with cousins Blake and Malia, Auntie Charinya, and friends Janna and her kids DJ & Seryna while all the Dad's played in a golf tourney. Moms and kids were completely pooped by day's end but we had a great time! ;0)

and finally - me and Chaz.
This may be my one and only chance at 15 minutes of fame and well its 15 minutes more then I thought I would ever get. As long as my boys think I am #1, that's all I need. ;0)

Thanks Nathiya for making me happy and have some photos to look back on one day when I am old and gray and telling my grandkids (God willing) how Grandpa and I met...I can hear the "eeeeeeeew's" now. ;0)

James already says when we kiss goodbye - "EW, YOU'RE MARRIED!" As if that is a bad thing! HA

good night! xoxo

reorganization ;0)

The Siripoke Family blog was a little overtaken by all of my photography info, blogs, links and such. So I have moved it all over to my Lucky Gal photography blog. ;0)

I should have been posting it there from day one, but better late then never.

Siripoke Family blog will return to postings of the boys, possible teeth eruptions (still nothing- ugh!), first steps (don't worry, none of those either), big brother news and general kids stuff. ;0)

Happy 65th!

Today was my father-in-law's 65th birthday and we celebrated with a SURPRISE party! He was definitely surprised and it all went off without a hitch! ;0)

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!

Just playing with some texture....
I found a wonderful site called - Pay it Foward - where I found this texture, kindly shared by Craig of along with a zillion other wonderful treasures. Once again I am blown away by the intense generosity and kindess of those in the photography community. I have learned so much from so many and I will pass on whatever I can in the future.

Marco Danger Plautz

Oh yes this little angel's middle name is DANGER - and he will live up to the name I just know it! I had the privilege of meeting him and taking some Day One photos for his happy Mom & Dad.

Just ran across this cool site for the most precious little pieces for infants.

Wanted to post it before I lost it...;0)
