Anything Else

I heartfaces is dedicated to doing pictures with people's faces in it.  Every once in a while the theme is something other then faces.  This week is one of those times!  YEAH!  I almost forgot.  It's really hard to pick a picture each week but I finally decided to use this one.

For those who don't regularly look at my page, my sister and her husband have not been able to get pregnant.  About 10 months or so ago they were told they get to be parents.  Someone had picked them to be parents.  The mom to be was very nice and wanted to be a part of everything including the baby shower we threw for my sister.  After the shower was over, I had the privilege of taking pictures of the three of them together.   This was everyone's favorite from the photo shoot.  I love everything about it and this picture is in a frame in Jacob's bedroom.  What a blessed boy he is.

Go check out all of the other AMAZING pictures.  There are some super fantastic ones this week.

Check out how cute this little guy is.

We tried really hard to get a great smile picture out of him when he was here visiting.  The problem is that Kayla REALLY wanted to be on the bed to help, it was dark in my bed room and Jacob spits up A LOT!   Between those three things we got a couple of good one but we didn't get the huge smile his mommy was hoping for.  I think we got some good ones though.  He is such a sweet baby!

A LONG Time A-Coming

I have neglected this blog a lot lately.  I have good reasons.  Mainly because since I moved, I no longer have people requesting to have their photo taken.  Nevertheless, my kids have had theirs taken plenty.  I haven't posted many of those but maybe one of these days I'll get around to it.  I haven't been entering the iheartfaces or the trendytreehouse contest either.  Sometimes I check the theme and then just forget.  Other times I just forget all together.  This week over at IHEARTFACES they have a theme I wanted to join in on.  It's cell phones!  I started going through all of my cell phone pictures and I actually have quite a few good ones.  I had one in mine I was going to use but as I went through I decided to go with something else.  Not because I think this one will win or even get placed ( it won't ) but just because I loved the moment.

Makes me laugh every time!  I miss when my daughter used to make this face all the time.  I am glad I got a picture of it.  There are several things she did that I kept saying, "I have to get that on video" and never did.  Bummer.  Enjoy all of the other cell phone pictures over at iheartfaces.  There are some amazing photos.

Photo Challenge

My friend had a photo challenge on her facebook page and I have been feeling so not myself lately.  I think this will be a good thing for me to get back into a good mood.  Moving was hard on me.  I didn't think it was going to be but it has been and I just don't feel like myself.  I haven't had any photo shoots or anything and I think this will be the kick in the pants I need to start taking more pictures again.  Not sure if I will start today or tomorrow but here is the schedule in case anyone else is interested.  :) 

Day one: a photo of you.
Day two: a photo of yourself at least a year ago.
Day three: a photo that makes you happy.
Day four: a photo of a place you'd like to visit.

Going through the list I see about half of it is actually old pictures.  This still makes me happy.  I love digging out old pictures!  Hope everyone has a fabulous rest of the week and weekend.  My kid isn't feeling good but my parents are coming this Sunday.  Can't wait.
