WW: Summer Ice Cream

Don't forget to enter my My Memories Suite GIVEAWAY and grab the coupon code to pass along to all your friends! 

Nothing like an ice cream bar on a hot Summer day after church...

It started out so innocently...

Then, the ice cream began to melt and the chocolate sides started to fall off...

And in a matter of minutes, things went from "slightly messy" to "very messy!"...

But he didn't complain - he was just thrilled to have some ice cream!

Oh, and this sweet little gal, who shall remain un-named...
...She had the audacity to call my son "messy"! :)
{I just love her! Really, I do!}

Photo Challenge: From a High Angle

Photography Challenge, week #5
From a High Angle

I've had a pretty busy week and nearly forgot about the challenge, so I'm a little later than I would have liked, but better late than never, right?! :)
I just started giving my "baby" full sandwiches (as opposed to one cut into triangles) and he enjoyed posing for me...

Me: "Ok, now sit right there so Mommy can stand on this chair and take some pictures of you."

Me: "Ok, now take a big bite and look up at Mommy."
Son thinking "How's this?"

Me: "Wow, that was a big bite! Now take another smaller bite." "That's good!"

Me: "Ok. Now look up and smile."

Me: "Oops! Mommy's flash didn't go off. Let's try again!"

Me: "Yes, that's good!"
Son thinking "Are we almost done? My sandwich is almost all gone."

Son: "Aahhh!!!! It's breaking! Mommmmyyyy!!!!"

And so our photography session ended...

Next Week: F…

Higher Than Our Thoughts

Have a blessed Sunday!

Photo Challenge: What Makes You Smile

Photo Challenge, week #2
What Makes You Smile

There are lots of things that make me smile! I've been very blessed with a wonderful husband, two beautiful little boys, sweet friends, a wonderful church, a comfortable home... I could go on, but you get the idea! Aside from the obvious things in my day that I'm thankful for and that make me smile, I always love to sit down in the mornings, after I've read my Bible and cleaned up the kitchen, and enjoy my homemade {{Starbucks quality}} latte. Recently, I had the wonderful opportunity to visit an Anthropologie store and picked up this cheery mug - it's a compliments my coffee so beautifully! ;) It always makes me smile! It's the little things...

Card: Birthday Camp

The oldest of my little nephews had his 4th birthday recently, so I decided to make a little interactive card for him.

In between the normal daily routine, it took me several days to make this. When I decided what I wanted to do, I think that all the cutting, resizing and re-cutting, choosing colors, and just putting it all together would take so long! Most of the elements were from both Paper Dolls Cricut cartridges. The tent was from the svg file I found here; I used SCAL to cut it out.

Inside, I placed a little "paper doll" camper roasting marshmallows outside his tent. The little man is laminated and removable, so he can be played with later.

I had a lot of fun with all the little details of this card! I hope he enjoys it as much as I enjoyed making it!

TCL: Boys and their cars

I began this year hoping to feature a series of photos taken by my son on his camera. The year started out well... until his camera broke. I suppose your first thought may be "well, what do you expect when you give a camera to a kid?" I suppose that's right to an extent, but think about it, he was only 3 when he first got the camera and had used it faithfully for 2-1/2 years before the screen went black! I would say that's pretty good for an active little photographer! :)

A new camera is on his wish list/prayer list. ;)

For now, I will be digging through the archives...

Photographer's Age: 4 years old Subject: Little Brother Image: SOOC (straight out of camera)
I find the angle on this shot rather interesting. It's obvious that Big Brother was more intent on getting a photo of the car than capturing Little Brother. Still, even with only the bottom half of his face showing, the photo is powerful! It's all about capturing the little things...
