I Heart Faces - Someone I Love & Burst of Red

Day 5 & 6

This is the man I love. He is a Godly man.  He is a hardworking man and an outstanding father.  This man is very good to his wife!  I love so many things about him and one of those things is the fact that he can doze off in the midst of our swirling household long enough to let the kids decorate him.

I Heart Faces - Shadow Play

Day 4

This is a Christmas tradition in our home.  We bring out all our winter stuffies and set up a snow scene at the top of our living room windows.  The scene varies from year to year but a few things remain the same: the penguin with the green hat always goes for a belly slide, and a lighted evergreen garland is hung around them.  I love how the little lights peeking through the boughs casts a playful dance of light and shadow.

I Heart Faces - What You're Reading

I do read actual books, novels, paperbacks, fiction and non-fiction, however, if I am being honest with myself (and you) this is what I read the most of.

And, yes, my laptop is held together with a cardboard box.  Don't judge.

I Heart Faces - Elf

The only elf on my shelf likes marshmallows, M&Ms, Pop Tarts and syrup on his spaghetti.

On Thanksgiving each year I bring out all our Christmas movies.  There are twice as many as shown here.  We watch the bejeebers out of 'em until January 1st when they go back into the vault (otherwise known as the bottom of the book shelf behind the box of random electronic parts).  Being able to only watch them one month out of the year makes them that much more special.  In fact, it would seem, that's what makes most things about Christmas special.

I Heart Faces - Me

So here I am, with my camera.  It is nothing special.  A Sony Cybershot with 3x zoom and 7.2 mp.  It takes nice pictures.  No one buys my pictures or pays me to take pictures.  We just do our thang capturing memories (sometimes inventing or recreating them) as they whoosh by.  Like my camera _I_ am nothing special.  I don't mean that in a self deprecating way.  A Christian, wife, and homeschooling mom.  A manager at a pizza joint. There are lots of us still in use, albeit, a little out dated.
