a prayer cross and NOT a puppy

Okay...I laugh at the commercials, but she has been BEGGING me for one of these crosses. I think they are kinda lame, but it was that or a puppy, and I can tell you right now that I am not ready for a puppy and neither is she. She is convinced she can take care of a puppy, but that would last about a week and then the job would fall on me. So, no puppy for Christmas this year, but I went ahead and got her the cross. See the look of joy on her face? It was worth it.

I posted this on facebook and got absolutely NO reaction. Not surprised, most people are bombarded with stuff on fb so I shouldn't expect comments on every little thing I post. But I seriously thought I was being clever with this one. I realize that the tot and NOT a coney is cutting the cheese here, but there was no coney in the picture, I suppose I could have photoshopped a coney into the photo as well, but I wasn't that up to it.

Anyhow, I had fun doing it. **snicker, snicker, snort**


Merry Christmas

My joy before bedtime Christmas Eve...I love these sweeties with every ounce of my being. I am so blessed.

Went over to a dear friends home last night to take some Christmas portraits of her family. Once we were done and she was walking out to my van with me...I asked her if she wanted some photos of her house all decorated....she said "sure!", so I got the camera back out, set up the tripod and took a few shots. This one of their tree through the window is my favorite.


All dressed up...

Took the kiddos to see our favorite Santa at our favorite mall today. The mall was dead...so sad, it's a beautiful mall with a water fountain area where they used to have music festivals where you could picnic and listen to the music. There were only two food places in the food court still occupied and open, and only a hand full of stores open.

The good news was, we didn't have to wait long to see Santa. We were second (and last) in line.



i ♥ faces..."sweet dreams"

When I found out the theme for i♥faces this week, I knew exactly which photo I wanted to enter.

After attending two birthday parties, complete with pinatas and tons of screaming kids, we got home and my son exclaimed quite adamantly "I am NOT tired!". Ten minutes later, I found him on the living room sofa like this. Had to grab the camera and capture the moment.


Stop by i♥faces to see more "Sweet Dreams" entries for this week.


from a moving car...the sequel

I just had to shoot this on our drive back from Houston this past weekend...and with traffic being the way it was (bumper to bumper) I knew Ronnie wouldn't be stopping for me to get a clear shot. Anyhow, I think it turned out pretty well, considering. I love windmills, don't know why, they just seem charming and nostalgic to me, and the broken down shed had to be included as well.
