I Heart Faces Photo Contest

June 2, 2009

I just LOVE this contest, it’s been so much fun getting to participate and be inspired by so many other photographers.  This week’s theme for kids is “Happy Birthday” ~ Must have a child in it and clearly be a birthday celebration of some sort!  I picked a pic of Kasen and my MIL bringing out my husband’s birthday cake.  Kasen was SO excited to help, and she was thrilled that I let her pick out whatever she wanted to wear to her Daddy’s birthday celebration.  She went all out with a beautiful dress and patent leather shoes. :)   I thought this picture called for a vintage look.  Don’t forget to check out all the other great birthday celebrations at I Heart Faces


There is as new category this week – Pets Category – “Anything Goes” theme (even though we call this special category “Pets”, we really don’t care if the animal is an actual pet or not.)  Since anything goes, this is a cute little turtle that I took a picture of at the Dallas Aquarium.  He just kept swimming by and looking directly at me, so I kept snapping pics.  He seemed totally intrigued by my camera and I was totally intrigued by him. ;)

P.S.  We had another adoption home study yesterday morning and everything went well.  And on that front, no more baby news yet – he’s staying put for now. :)

See ya’ later!!
