Day 13 - poTAto, poTAHto

Here's a photo of my dad and his mom.
My dad was the 2nd youngest of 13 kids.
I personally don't even like making homemade mashed potatoes for my family of FOUR... I can't begin to IMAGINE peeling and dealing THIS many potatoes!  I don't even OWN a POT this big (well, maybe I do... but it's on my front porch!!)

Day 9 - I Do All My Own Stunts

This picture was taken 2 years ago.  Luke had dumped a bowl of DRY oatmeal on his head. 
He wasn't happy...

I still put out the two frames on my countertop with the very same photos each winter!  FUN TO SEE!

Day 8 - by choice

Craig and I started dating nearly 17 years ago.

YAY ME, right?!?!

Day 6 - hot chocolate

I'm a HUGE fan of
h o t    c h o c o l a t e

I personally prefer
1/2 chocolate and 1/2 WHITE chocolate.
It's called a ZEBRA HOT CHOCOLATE!  Mmmmmm!!!!!!!!

Day 5 - snowflake

Okay, so apparently I've completely missed the point of the ORIGINAL 365 CHALLENGE!  You're supposed to grab your camera and CLICK a photo everyday to post.  I guess it's to sort of record your life for one year in photos.  Of course this DOES sound interesting, but NO WAY am I feeling up to accepting.
On the other hand, I completely LOVE MY version and fully intend to finish it! 
360 days to go


Can you believe this is REAL?!?!?!  Incredible!!!

Day 4 - free falling

This photo goes with Day 3.
What a RUSH!

Day 3... All Caught Up

Since I started late on this challenge, I wondered how I would feel at the END of the year being short a couple days of photos.  I decided to get caught up to date, so here's another...
Then I'll follow the rule of ONE PER DAY, yet EVERY DAY!
Yes... this is me!  July, 2009     WOO HOO

Day 2 - our clones

Stole it and Startin' it

I stole this idea for a blog from my friend, Christy.  She's already rockin' with it and I'm a few days behind, but I'm anxious to try to complete the challenge too. 

The challenge-
post ONE photo every day of this year

Here's another steal- my first photo!  and guess what... CHRISTY TOOK IT!!!! ha ha ha   
It's too cool though, so I can't help but share!  And in my defense, I WAS THERE when she took it and it was MY idea to snap the shot.   hee hee   I do give HER credit though, so I imagine she'll forgive me.
It's of her sister-in-law's hair with teeny, yet PERFECT SNOWFLAKES!   I LOVE IT

Enjoy THIS photo and hopefully many, many more.

And by the way... Christy's blog of photos is:
