January 17, 2010 (Opossom)

Can you see the eyes in this first one?





































This is my opossom friend. I was sitting outside talking to Lucie on the phone and two of them just wandered on by without a care in the world! We didn't seem to mind each other much :)

January 16, 2010 (Last minute)


Yes, this is a last minute photo. I'm apparently not very good at this... but I'll keep trying! I've always wanted to get a picture of two mirrors flush against each other - I don't know what that would look like... anyway - this is the eye-ball of the camera...

January 15, 2010 (birthmark)


This is me waiting for Lucie to get done on the computer... She was getting pretty mad at you mr. Blog. You kept transforming her picture uploads into HTML format... AND you don't copy and paste - which I admit is annoying. One can actually see my birthmark in this picture... Hmph. Lucie asked me today if kids used to make fun of me for it... I suppose they did - but not so much that I was traumatized by it, or ever even cared. My mom told me once that it was where God touched me. Maybe thats why I was never really ashamed of it... and it makes me feel cool if its true! Thank you momma :)

January 14, 2010 (Cookies 'n milk)


I think this one is pretty self-explanitory... I've been hired to make greeting cards and this is my first theme! Wait... what? No, it was what you first thought it was - I'm a fatty. Pretty sure this is my favorite "junk" food.

January 13, 2010 (Pine cone)


I found this little pine cone in my back yard, and picked it up for Lucie. She likes little stuff - little acorns, little toys... Hippos. I haven't had a chance to give it to her yet but I thought it was cute. It's amazing to me how something so small can grow into something so huge. I think that's true for a lot of things in our lives - we start small, and with a little time, hard work, and God given grace - we can make it.

January 12, 2010 (little light)


So Noelle started blogging a picture she takes every day of the year. Then Lucie thought it was a fantastic idea and started her own. I'm told "the man may be the head but the woman is the neck". Which is a long way of saying "I'm doing it now too". It's a fun thing though so why not? I thought for an inordinate amount of time about what my first picture should be of... and in case you can't figure it out - it's a light in my bathroom. I didn't take the picture because it was beautiful or interesting... I took it because it's not. I feel bad for all the little things that are never "worthy" enough to be used or have pictures taken of them. This particular light hasn't worked for several years and is rusting all along the outside. It just sits there. And some day in the not too distant future I'm sure it will be removed and thrown away or destroyed. So the honor of the first picture belongs to it. Because even when it is long gone, I will look back on my blog and remember that it existed. That it was here. Good luck little light.
