Good Night: Edited

I wanted this shot to focus more on the moment and less on the cuteness of the Packer gear.
My edit was Real Simple:
I cropped it & used Pioneer Woman's Heartland. 
The end.

Here it is SOOC:

I hope to get more Photoshop savvy in the future's just these two are a handful! literally.

Good Night: SOOC

SOOC (Straight out of the Camera)
This shot was obviously not taken by me...but I HAD to use it for the "Good Night" Propmt.  On Sunday, my car would not start, so we had to wait until my husband got home from work to go to church.  (Yes, the kids wore their Packer gear to church this week)  At any rate, they both fell asleep in my arms, and as soon as Daddy walked in the door, I made him grab the camera!

Check back on Thursday to see how I edit it!

Innocent Wonder

Look at all those fish!

Memories, Dreams, & Reflections 2010

OF 2010
Thank you, Ashley, for such a great list!

with my proudest accomplishments: Samantha & Cashton. 
You make me that happiest mommy in the world!

2.I Love You
God Bless the Camera Timer and the Roof of our car...we took this shot in the parking lot after the Glee LIVE! Concert in May.  Isn't my hubby HOT?!?!  I love him for "indulging" me by going to it with me...and I say it in quotes because he totally loves Glee too :)

3.Still Laughing...
this gets me everytime!

4.Winter Wonderland
Our first EXTREME Letterboxing Adventure.  Read all about it here...but this is of my nieces and nephew walking across a frozen lake to the island. 

the most eventful BIRTHday of the year, September 13th, we welcomed Cashton into our family!

YIKES!  This was a week before Cashton arrived....look at me all sweaty "Glowing"
These girls have been good friends since High School.  We try to get together often, but that usually means every 3 months or so.  LOVE THEM!

7.I Was Inspired...
I got my first DSLR camera in October of this year, and I just couldn't wait to capture some snowflakes from our first snowfall...
8.Spring Fever
Every spring the local Art & Garden Center has free admission during the Tulip Bloom...Sam LOVES smelling flowers!
9.Travel or Vacation
Every summer we take a big family camping trip.  This year it was UNBELIEVABLY HOT and HUMID...and I was UNBELIEVABLY HUGE and PREGNANT. That water was over 90 degrees (not refreshing) I pretty much went down to the water, snapped this shot of the men and kids fishing, and waddled back to the shade put my legs up.
10.Summer Days
Not only is my hubby's birthday in is our anniversary (the 4th to be exact)  We're pretty patriotic, as you can see

11.A Day In My Life

12.All Smiles
How can I not smile every time I see these two together?

13.Autumn Harvest
 My Favorite People

Samantha celebrated birthday Number 3 in August....and became a BIG SISTER in September!

16.Let's Do It Again...
I can't take credit for taking this shot, but I will say that the Sisters-in-Law weekend getaway is a definite MUST DO AGAIN!
17.I Miss You
while my 95  year old grandmother is still here with us, many days she is not. 
I am so glad she got to meet Cashton.

Our Beautiful Daughter, Samantha.
