When I started on my 2012 end of year video I was afraid that I would have no pictures. Between computer issues and illness I’ve not taken as many pictures. THen I scrolled through the albums and saw the dance pictures, prom, baby pictures, and life in general.
I saw the prompt for the IHeartFaces photo challenge and again wondered what I could find. Looking through the pictures I narrowed it down to two shots. I finally came to this one.
We had many big events in 2012 but becoming a grandparent was certainly the biggest. This shot captures his mom giving him a kiss. They are so incredibly close in this picture, you almost have to stop to see where one begins and the other ends. Not long before this was taken he was pretty close to her too, him sharing her body for a while.
There are some amazing pictures at I Heart Faces. Check them out if you can and enter one if you like.

I had to really look through my pictures to find one that I thought fit this prompt. I looked at wedding, new baby, and birthday pictures. I finally decided on this one.
All the neighborhood kids were outside with sparklers and watermelon on the 4th of July. She was having SO much fun. It is hard to catch her off guard and get a natural shot of her laughing and smiling. This is one.

Now off to work, band concerts, and hopefully getting ready for Easter!

I’m back! The theme this week is Black and White at IHeartFaces and I had to participate! I love to do black and white pictures. One of my recent favorites is one I took of Boo’s grandpa in December. It was the last picture I took of him before he passed away and I think he looks great in it.
One of my favorite shots ever.
Join in the B&W action at IHeartFaces yourself. I enjoy looking around.

I wondered if I had a picture that I had already taken for the book theme. Then it hit me. Of course I do.
This picture was taken when my daughter had a book signing for her story that was published in a Chicken Soup For The Soul book. She wrote about her dog and how helping him become a part of our family helped her heal and make our family stronger after being adopted from foster care. She read her story at a local library meeting, she spoke at a National Adoption Day event, and was even on the morning news segment with the dog. Live.
While it was exciting for her to have had a story published, it was more exciting to me to see the outpouring of love and support from our small town. They invaded Books-A-Million and she sold out of books within minutes. (they donated all profits made during the signing to the Rainbow Room for abused children) People supported her in everything she did.
I am so proud of her. I look back at these pictures to choose one for this and I am one again blown away by the people in our lives. Her story touched many and the people here touched me.

The photo challenge at IHeartFaces this week is Pink in honor of breast cancer awareness. Our previous entry tells of a friend who recently discovered she had breast cancer. An elementary school teacher(35), her entire school donned pink on the day of her surgery.
Our town was pink this week as we had the 13th Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Our Friday night football game was a Pink Out game and this the shirt my daughter wore. My daughter is 13 and will never remember a time when we didn’t take time in October to remember those who we’ve lost, honor those who have fought, and pray for those in the battle. She will also know the measures to protect herself.

This week’s theme is Raise Your Hands.
I loved this shot the second I took it.

Now I need to get ready to work. Yes, we have school today. I don’t mind it since we are out the whole week of Thanksgiving. I like that trade.
