Snapshot a Day (11/22) - AND FRIDAY FLASHBACK!

WE MADE IT TO FRIDAY, GUYS!!!

I get off in a mere 3 hours (Carlos and I are taking half a day to do some Christmas shopping for Logan). I had Logan take a snap of me this morning and I hope to be back later to share. But regardless, I hope everyone here has a great day, staying safe and warm (or cool if you would prefer) and a beautiful weekend surrounded by those you love.

Blessings to you all this Friday.

Now ... come share your snaps from today, this week, this year, or whenever. Biggrin

Best,

I have a camera full of pics, but not much on-line to share.

Well ... I *do* have soccer pics!

and since this is a "flash back" thread - check out my baby's early moves!

the cheeks just KILL me.

and for good measure, here are a couple of my puppy loves:

Take care, everyone!

Aw, GiGi, those are great! I saw you say to someone on FB that Logan is "all legs" now. That first shot definitely demonstrates the truth of that statement! Wow! And oh my, the flashback pic, look at his chubby cheeks! Ohhhh, it makes me sad already for when my kids are grown so much, and yet excited too, to see who they develop into, you know? And great puppy love pics too, I love that one of Loki!

Here's my snapshot for today. Didn't get much sleep last night, so my snap is of a necessary stop in our day: the mailbox!
My Little Mail Man

Don't have too much else I haven't shared already, but here's a couple from our trip out to the river.

Tracy - I haven't posted this on fb yet - I want to get a pic to go with it, but just THIS WEEK, Logan is now even with me in height. And he's on a growth spurt, so I fully expect him to be taller by Christmas/New Years. *sigh* It is truly bitter sweet. I miss that chunky little toddler so much, but he's such a fun and loving tween boy that I can't begrudge him growing up.

I love the pics from your trip out to the river, but I gotta tell you, I just adore the mailbox shot! I've said it before (& I'll say it again here), you have a real eye for "lifestyle" images. This just looks like FUN to me. Biggrin

TFS and happy weekend!

Gigi, Dana and I were looking at Pictures from almost 3 years ago I can't believe the changes, she's also now almost my height and I am tall at 5' 7".

All your pictures are wonderful, I hope to get some up later.

Wow!! Almost taller than you, huh?! (((HUGS))) It is bitter sweet, isn't it? But when they're turning into great kids... tweens... teens... adults, I guess that's what we need to dwell on and be thankful for! As it sounds like Logan definitely is! Smile

Thanks, GiGi! I really appreciate hearing that. I looked at some wonderful images taken by a National Geographic photographer a while back, where he was talking about ensuring you capture your FAMILY moments, your LIFE, on camera, not just the posed portraits or the stunning landscapes or whatever. Ever since then, I have made a concerted effort to get more moments like this, or the kids baking with me, or Micah looking for books at the library, or whatever. It's neat to have those memories, and I have to say, the "snapshot a day" threads really help me with that goal!

Gigi, oh wow Logan is so tall now!

Tracy, I need to make more of an effort to slow down and capture those family moments. I'm always so busy rushing from one thing to the next that I feel like I'm missing out on the actual moments.

I don't have much as I'm still without my camera. I borrowed my sister's camera to try and get some shots in time for Christmas cards but between my son who hates having his photo taken and not being at all familiar with her camera, I just couldn't make it work.

I do have these two snaps from a week or so ago. Yes, I'm purposely hiding them here. I have a history of multiple miscarriages and this one is already measuring a little behind, plus the scans showed a subchorionic hemorrhage. So, I'm not jumping around celebrating yet but I am trying to remain as optimistic as I can Smile

Gemma ... what great news! I'm sending as many "sticky" vibes as I can muster up and sending them your way! TFS and keep us posted on your progress. (((HUGS)))

Steph ... that is just SO CUTE! You look amazing and what an awesome progression.

Here's a quick one for my snap of the day. Logan took it for me:

We're all totally in love w/ this pup! Biggrin

Gigi, that's so nice! And I love seeing pics of you. It's so nice when the ladies here get in front of the camera (talking to myself here, who never does......)!
