Snapshot a Day (12/06) - AND FRIDAY FLASHBACK!

Happy Friday guys! I hope everyone is having a good week and looking forward to a good weekend.

It's cold here, at least by TX standards. I'm sitting in my office w/ a steaming cup of coffee and a blanket wrapped around me (yes, I brought one to the office). I'm looking forward to a weekend with very little going on - which should be a nice change of pace.

ANYWAY ... whatever your weather and plans for the weekend, I hope you all have a blessed day.

And in the meantime, I invite you to share your snap of the day along with your favorites from the last week, month, year, whenever!

Also ... just as a heads up ... on Monday I plan to start our "faves from the last year" thread, so if you have a chance, start digging through your archives and find those images that speak the most to you to share with us over the coming weeks.

Best,
GiGi

GiGi- it's cold here too! It's snowing, so we are out of school once again! Four day weekend- whoop whoop! Yahoo Enjoy your easy going weekend. We are super busy this weekend. Headed to the tree farm for fun with pets, cookies, and a scavenger hunt and then finishing up the day at a parade!

Here's some from the last couple of weeks!
This was from this morning- making biscuits!

Really cute, Sadie. I LOVE the first one. Just love moments like that, family together in the kitchen doing stuff... so cool. And beautifully captured.

GiGi, it's definitely cold here too. This is going to be a very chilly winter if the two unusually cold snaps we've already had are any indication.

For my snapshot today, I tried something for a challenge. Not sure if it works, but it's kind of a hard one. It's "old and new". I would really like a photo of a VERY wrinkled great-grandma holding a newborn or something, but in lieu of that (!) I tried this instead. Tried to juxtapose a traditional Bible with my Kindle, and an old-fashioned tea cup with the more standard "on the go" coffee thermos.
Old & New

I've already shared most of my stuff from the week in the snapshots threads, but here's one of our Christmas village:

And Nora eating candy from the advent calendar:

One I took last week of my cards/Micah during a game. Micah is currently totally addicted to UNO.

And I don't think I shared this one, just Micah practicing kicking at home before soccer!

Sadie ... no snow here (that's pretty rare). I actually wish it would snow - I think it would be easier to accept the biting cold if we had some pretty white snow to go w/ it. Wink I love the shot of Randall and the kids making biscuits! Those are the memories that stay w/ kids for a lifetime. Smile

Tracy ... I *love* your shot for today! I think the bible next to the kindle is an AWESOME example of old/new. I didn't catch the teacup/coffee thermos comparison. I think the thermos gets lost a bit. I do love everything about this though - great balance! I also really love the one of Nora eating candy - looks like she is feeling a lot better. Biggrin

Here is mine for today - can you tell the dogs were cold this morning?

and here are a few from this week:

an ornament from when Logan was small

and a new one we made this year

our fireplace

Logan & Loki


and I guess that'll be enough for now.

With the bad weather, my family shoot this weekend has been cancelled. I am hoping it warms up enough on Sunday to try and get MY family shoot done. I am *so* behind in getting cards done.

Oh ... but I do have the one that I am going to have Logan send his grandparents:

Take care everyone!

GiGi, such great Christmassy pics! Smile Love it, it's putting me in the mood for Christmas! I really like the ornament from when Logan was small, as we just did step #1 of a similar type of ornament for our kids' grandparents' Christmas gifts. I'll have the kids paint the faces/hats/etc. on next week sometime.

We're off to see my parents for my dad's 70th birthday/retirement and my mom's birthday too, so I'll see you all on Monday!

And my Christmas card photo. We didn't make it out to the rusty red door before the weather got cold for a family photo, so this will have to do:

I was away and never replied to Steph's shots, but they are all so great. It's beautiful seeing your boys together, Steph.

Love your shots too, Danielle! Some of you have such great houses for Christmas tree photos, I'm jealous! These are beautiful and sweet. Look how big Collin is already! Looking totally adorable too. Smile
