Manca family Christmas, Ottawa 2007

 Published in

I really can't believe how fast time goes by. Christmas 2007 has already come and gone. It was quite a Christmas to remember!! Jessica and I had the privilege of hosting my entire family here in our new house. In freezing cold Ottawa.

It was the first time we'd had a house full of people. We gleefully found that it is very possible to have six adults in the house without stepping on each others toes (well not too much stepping anyway). We each had our moments of frustration. But they were just that -- moments.

I do miss my family. While I do very much like being in Ottawa, sometimes it is hard to be so far away. It was funny that we slipped right back in to our old roles. I want things to be just so. Padre goes out in the morning for his exercise and his coffee. Marpoo is loud -- and now, Jessica helps!

Practicing my photo composition, point and shoot vs SLRs

Today was a fun day! Other than the fact I had to fly from Ottawa to Minneapolis on a Sunday so I could be there for work bright and early on Monday, it was a good day. As a part of a photography seminar, today I went with some friends from work on a photo expedition of a Quebec farm in Fall. It was beautiful and very relaxing! In addition to practicing my eye for composition, it provided me with a unique opportunity. I was able to pit my 2007 Canon PowerShot SD800IS point and shoot against my circa 1996 Canon Elan IIe 35mm SLR. Nearly every time I took a photo with the SLR, I took the same shot (or as close as I could to it) with the point and shoot. How do the two cameras compare? We shall find out in a few days!

It really is the happiest place on Earth!

As Jessica said in her blog, I want to go back to Disneyland! We both had such a great time there. I'm not sure what makes it so special for me... I do know that one thing that holds true for me now that I'm a part of the rat race is when you are there, you don't have any other care in the world. The outside world no longer matters. The only thing that matters while you are there is figuring out what ride you should go on next, or where the best place to sit and people watch is. Ahhh.

Mark and Jessica at the Tiki Room at Disneyland

Jessica and I went to Disneyland last week!!! We had such an amazing time. It is too bad that our jobs don't just pay us to hang out in the park :-) We'll give you all a more detailed update soon!
