Bust a Gut--I heart Faces

The theme this week over at I heart faces ( is Bust a Gut, no little smiles they said. I immediately thought of this session. They say the best gift you can give your child is a sibling. I believe this full heartily. I can make my kids laugh but I can't make them laugh like they can with each other. This session included three sisters and I had a hard time picking which one was laughing the hardest at any one time. There were so many gut wrenching laughs going on. They just cracked each other up and I don't think I had to do much but sit there with my camera and capture it all. Oh what great fun we had! I don't remember what was so funny but I know it was genuinely hilarious!
I can't wait to go see what everyone else is laughing about! See you there!

Print Your Pictures!!!!!

Today my kids found my grandmother's photo album. Its really not hard to find, I've always kept it out. But today they actually looked through it and it brought me so much joy to share her memories with them. And I couldn't help but think how we don't always print out our pictures. They are all loaded up on disks, which is great but how often do we jump on the computer to browse through them? We don't or at least I don't. I upload them and then forget about it. But albums . . . well . . .those I look at. Either when I'm watching TV or sometimes even when I just walk by and catch a glimpse of something while on my way to clean something. I stop and start browsing. And today my kids pulled something out and looked. They NEVER get on the computer to look at pictures from long ago. I remember sitting with my grandma and going through all these pictures with her when I would visit. And I know she enjoyed telling me all about her and her borthers and sisters crazy antics. 005
Anyway I guess I'm saying print your pictures out people! Don't just store them on your CD discs. Print your memories out because I don't care what anyone says; paper is here to stay. Get something tangible to hold in your hands, you won't ever regret it. My new years resolution? Print more photos. I want my kids to one day show their kids just how much fun I had taking their pictures! Did you know I make a pretty cute spiral bound book.....

Autumn Splendor--I heart Faces

This week we're talking Autumn Splendor over at I heart faces ( I love autumn, I mean I love summer more but after living in New England for 4 years I really grew to love autumn. Now being in Indiana I wondered what would be in store for us here. Good news; we may not have as many trees as New England but we still have plenty of trees with lots of leaves to lose! And when you're a kid, the best part of Autumn is playing in the leaves, making leaf angels, ahhh the splendor of Autumn!


Head on over to I heart Faces and see all the other Autumn Splendors!

52 Week Challenge; Book Title

Continuing with my 5th out of 52 weeks is the theme book title. My son is such an old soul that if he's not reminding me of Frank Sinatra then he reminds me of Jack Kerouac. Thought he was my perfect model this week.

Black--I heart faces

This week over at I heart faces ( is the theme black. At first I was thinking of my son in his batman costume because he made sure I got him the "black batman and not the blue batman" but Halloween was SO 7 days ago! And then all I could think about was our black lab Jack. He is 8 1/2 now and doesn't act a day over 8 months. Here he is here not cooperating for our family pictures and he just gave my son a big wet sloppy one! So this is for you Black Jack!

Head on over to I heart faces and see what others have come up with.....
