Yay! Today is the day I know you have been waiting for all month since you found out about it!!
It was so much fun to go through my pictures from Jan-Mar and pick out my favorites. It was also super difficult!
Here you go! My Top 5 favorite photos of my girls in no particular order.
I just adore this one because we were at Build-a-Bear back in the States. The attendant handed Kate the heart of her stuffed animal and told her to make a wish. I think she stood like this for over a minute. Such sweet innocence!! Sure wish I knew what she was wishing for :O)
This is Ian’s grandpa (who could you please pray for, he just had a mini-stroke last week). He loves taking pictures just as much as I do!! Who knew that was possible :O) What is funny is this is his old film camera and even though his daughters have bought him nice little digital ones he refuses to use them. This is the same camera that in the middle of my wedding started to rewind while we were all praying. It always make me smile to see him pull it out :O)
When we hoped back from the States it took us 6 days! I was exhausted and so ready to be in Ian’s arms again! The weather was gorgeous when we landed so I begged him to go for a walk. This was taken just a few hours after we returned home and we were all so happy to be together again :O)
You all know what a huge advocate I am about being in the picture with your family. This one just makes me smile! We were making silly faces at the camera but Emma took a little tickling to get in the mood. I loved the photos I was able to get at this sunflower field.
This one just screams “childhood” to me. Come on! If two adults were in the water throwing sand at each other, I promise you they would not be laughing. These girls really are the best of friends! I’m so happy they are so close in age (21 months) and will hopefully always have fun like this!
Now onto the good stuff!
Here’s how it works:
1. Go through the photos you have taken of your kids or pets (I remember how my pets were my kids before my kids were my kids :O) Just choose photos taken from January 2011-March 2011.
2. Post them on your blog or flickr account on March 30th-April 6th
3. Link up with the linky either here @ Click it Up a Notch, Amber’s Articles, or Nap Time Momtog.
4. Put our button on your post. If the button is not there you will not be eligible to win.
Now here’s the exciting part! Actually this part makes me wish I wasn’t hosting it and I could participate to WIN!! We are having a giveaway for all those who participate!! Two, yes two, winners will be choosen. It is a random drawing so this isn’t a photography contest.
Another lucky winner will win this Mom’s Gonna Snap by Clickin’ Moms (You all know how much I LOVE Clickin’ Moms) So while you are over at there store be sure to join in the community of AMAZING photographers who love to encourage and help each other. I already have two of their shirts and LOVE them! In fact, I think I’m going to head over and buy this one for myself.
