snashot share: Aug 23 - 29

Another busy week coming up here (though not nearly as bad as last week)!

Thanks to all of you who gave me so much to look at last week! I've got a few snaps to share (as soon as I can get them uploaded), so I'll bbl.

But in the mean time ... here is our snap-share thread for the week!

May you all have a blessed week.

Best,

On Saturday, we got to meet some new puppies (Loki's half brothers and sisters)! They are only 2.5 weeks old and OH so adorable! To get us started this week, I'm gonna share more than one (and b/c I just LOVE these little chubs).

Sorry there are so many! I just can't help myself! And I can't wait to go back in a few weeks when they get to go outside on the grass for the first time. Biggrin

On Sunday, to mark the last day of summer vacation, we got up early and stopped by the archery range before church. Here's one of my favorites:

and here's one more - Logan took this one of me:

We only had a few minutes to grab our back-to-school snap this morning. I have an idea of something I'd like to try, so I am hoping that Logan will let me take one or two more this afternoon, but until then, at least I have this one:

Take care and have a great week everyone!

Best,

OH MY! Those puppy ones are ADORABLE!!! Love that third one, wow!

The archery ones are so cool. I love that your family does all that kind of stuff together. Really awesome!

I took the kids to the spray park today, and got a few nice pics in the gardens beside the spray park too.

Also got a cute one of Nora and a friend 'shooting the bear', which was me, apparently.

GiGi- those puppies are PRECIOUS! Love the one of them "kissing"! Too cute! And holy smokes on Logan! He looks wayyyyyy too grown up. Crazy!
Tracy- I love the spray park ones- especially the one where they are holding hands! The flower ones are spectacular as always!

Aug 23- goofs in the backseat!

Aug 24- Randall's precious Grandad has been coming with us to church. It breaks my heart b/c his church is falling apart and he helped build it, but we are blessed beyond measures to have him with us. He is LOVED!

Randy lost yet another tooth. This makes 6!

Aug 25-
Randall's day off is Monday, so he took the kids to school!

We left home earlier than we needed to headed to a football game. We stopped for snow-cones and went to a park and let the kids play. It was really hot, but for that short amount of time we were there, there was a nice breeze and it was perfect!

Tracy - the spray park looks so refreshing and fun! Your two look like they really enjoy being together. I just love seeing that!

Sadie - your "lifestyle" photos always give me pause! I just love them and feel like I am able to share your day with you and your crew. That last one of them heading to the buss is PERFECTION!

TFS, both of you!

I never did get any more pics of Logan on his first day of 7th grade (oh, how that hurts my heart to write 7th grade). And I even missed getting snaps of my puppies for National Dog Day yesterday (who knew it was NDD?). But I have some ideas of things I would like to try this week, so I hope I'll bbl with some snaps.

Oh ... but I do have this draft of a poster I've been working on for the TAMU Judo team (they're going to sell them as a fund raiser). What do you think?


(Logan was my model for the bottom picture - not that you can tell, but I love having him on there even covertly. Smile )

The pictures on the top will probably change - they were just some low-res snaps I grabbed from the team's web page in order to mock up this draft. The team coach (who is also Logan's judo instructor) has promised me a bunch of hi-res files to play with, he just keeps forgetting to get them to me. Wink

Anyway ... I'd love to hear your thoughts on it.

Take care and have a great week, everyone!

Best,
GiGi

LOVE the poster GiGi and how cool that it is Logan! Always love your poster work! Thanks for the sweet compliments. I hate to admit, but my phone is my main source of snaps these days. It's nice b/c it's not so big but sometimes I Just wish I would grab my big camera.

Here's my dogs for NDD!

Found Randy sitting outside just enjoying himself before the bus came.

Sadie, the one with Randall's granddad is wonderful! And I love the one of them running to the bus. A little different from the earlier pics with Ruthie ready to go and Randy holding back. I guess he's getting used to things!

GiGi, great job on the poster. The second and fourth pics across the top are fantastic, and I love the bottom part with the "ATM Judo". Very nice job!
