I Heart Faces *UPDATED* WE WON!

*UPDATE*

Ohmygoodnessgracious (as our friend Linny says).

WE WON!

This adorable kiddo gets first thanks (thank you to Mr. Daddy who always said we'd make cute kids), and HUGE thank you to Dana who made the photo a zillion times better with her Photoshop help. Thank you to Rob Miracle (don't you love his last name?) for his very kind comments and unenviable task of judging the week's entries. And thank you to I HEART FACES, who coordinates this great website that so many parents with cameras have gotten to learn from.

Whoo-hoo! (yes, I startled poor Itty Bit when I screamed upon seeing his picture on the page as first place!) Have a great weekend y'all!

**********************


It's I Heart Faces time - and the theme for this week is WONDER.

(I know, awesome theme, right?)

Our little guy was playing by the window and I can only guess that he suddenly realized the horses were in view. He turned to me with such an expression of awe and wonder... you can bet your sweet bippy I was glad the camera was handy!

Many thanks to my sweet and amazing friend Dana (aren't Photoshop savvy pals great?)

Check out I Heart Faces for more terrific photos and the stories behind them!

Heather said...

Wow, that's awesome you won!!! I REALLY wanted to be in the top 10 with my adult picture, but being Angie's top pick was good enough for me! : )

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Yay for sound enders!! Wow! Amazing how I write a post about Olympia and they all come out. I LOVE walking around Capitol Lake. Before I was pregnant, Chad and I used to go everyday... I'd ride my bike, he'd run, then we'd switch. I hated running at the same time as him because I'm so slow, but didn't mind if he was pedaling slowly on my bike. : )

I might have to become a follower of yours!

Stacy said...

CONGRATULATIONS...and of course, you won! :)

Paige said...

Congratulations on your win! That's a really great picture. Priceless. I'm always excited when I get a cute pic of my little boy.

And, thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. I've only been doing it for a little bit, but it's great fun and my family who lives in GA get to see what we're doing.
