Photo Challenge, week 2

So. Yeah. Lesley's photo challenge came out on Monday, but you'll have to forgive my laziness lack of time, since I'm just now getting around to it. 

So I told ya last week that we'd be doing 5 at a time. You don't have to do all 5, which relieves some of the pressure. 

You should do it. All the cool kids are. 

Day 6 Books

I've been reading a lot of children's books lately. Ava has just recently discovered a love of books. She always wants to be read to. She'll crawl over to you and try and hand you a book, and God help you if you don't take it from her quickly enough, or she'll hit you with it. Ever been clocked in the ankle with a cardboard book? No bueno. 

Day 7 Something Funny

The Cam Wow app on the iPhone. It's awesome. My girlfriend Christy had it, I've never heard of it. It's pretty cool, you can see in the screen what your pic will look like (depending on the place on the screen, things either bloat or pucker). Seriously, I was laughing so hard I could barely take the pic). I texted the pic to my husband and said "My my, aren't you a lucky man?"

Day 8 Favorite Color

Yeah, I'm lame and don't have a pic of this, but I'll share anyway. Favorite colors are turquoise and red. Favorite colors to wear are dark gray and black. Exciting, right? Seems like I always gravitate towards gray and black when I'm buying new clothes. 

Day 9 Inspiring person

That would be my momma. She's one of those "would give you the shirt off of her back" type of people. She's awesome. Growing up we didn't get along AT ALL. But as I've grown up, and she's relaxed, she's my best friend now. Always willing to drive over to watch the girls, come help me clean or do housework, stuff like that. She's good people. 

Day 10 Nature

I guess this counts as nature. This was taken on my oldest daughter's field trip on Thursday. We went to the Dallas Heritage Village. You got to see what life was like in the early 1900's. Looking at the beds and shoes, people were so much smaller back then. It was really neat to see the clothes and pictures, and it was fun to walk around. Well, it was fun when I wasn't threatening to strangle my child because she kept running off, and I had 5 other kids to keep track of. Butthead. 

So there you have it, folks.

That first picture of you and Ava is so sweet! Madi barley sits through 1 book although she always want's to 'read' i.e. flip through books. The second pic of you is hilarous!

So, the point of the photo challenge is to get you inspired and get you to take new photos. I totally cheated last week because I had nothin for nature so I used a photo I took last winter. :) Whatevs.
It's all good! Don't ever worry about what photos you're putting're actually doing it. Which rocks and I totally appreciate it!

So your family is gorgeous, but, duh. Your momma sounds like she has a wicked good heart. :)
