A New Year and a New Plan

So..... taking to heart my love for photography I thought to myself... why not try the 365 photo challenge!?
For those who don't know what that is.... It's a challenge to post a picture and tidbit every day. And let's face it, as a mom of 2 little ones, I should have PLENTY of subject matter. Not to mention all the other things that catch my eye (scenic, sunsets/rises, flowers, and everything else)

My own personal challenge will be to advance on my photographic abilities and style. So at the end of the year, I can look back and see if I am taking not only taking "pictures"... but going beyond that and take excellent photographs.

So, bring it on 2011! I'm looking forward to what you have for us ahead in the coming year!

swimming octopuses

When Rebekah came out of the bathroom carrying an armful of bath toys, I told her those toys stay in the bathroom. So she put them away. When she came out of the bathroom she told me they went swimming. Little did I think about the implications of that little statement.

Fast forward a few hours... I had to pee. So to the bathroom I went. And got quite a surprise when I lifted the toilet lid. There swimming in my toilet were 5 colorful octopuses.

Needless to say, I put off my relief and went fishing. Then set up a nice bleach bath for the dirty octopuses to swim in for awhile.

Oh the joys of having a two year old. :)

all gussied up

Yesterday, Ben's sister got married. Lissa asked Rebekah to be one of her flower girls... she was the cutest thing EVER. And she did a great job! Ben didn't think she would go through with going down the aisle, but she did and it was great.
So, a small CONGRATULATIONS to Melissa and Luke (although they won't see this)...

And a picture of our family, dressed to the nines. :)
