Scavenger Hunt Sunday

I wasn't sure if I was going to have time to prepare for this weeks Scavenger Hunt, but it is a rainy Saturday, Bennett is sleeping, and I am drinking coffee while pondering what photos I can throw together.  I will admit most of these photos have not been taken this week, but over the last few weeks.  If you enjoy viewing photos and have never visited Ashley's Scavenger Hunt Sunday, you are missing out, so head on over for a visit.
Scavenger Hunt Sunday

Here are my interpretations of this weeks items:
1.  Winter
I know some of you are wondering if I made a mistake, but there is no mistake here.  This is winter in South Florida.  We have had a few cold nights and cooler days, but sunny and 60+ for the most part.
Straight out of the camera, not photo editingThe Paper Mama
2.  Black and White with Selective Coloring
Little B was pigging out on some egg yolk.  Don't you love those cute little teeth?
Ni Hao Y'all
3.  The Wind
 
4.  Framed
We celebrated Christmas with my in-laws last night.  My nephews have the most creative imagination and are very into the Narnia books.  Therefore, we bought them a knight costume, which was a huge hit.  The boys sported them all night, even after their baths.

5.  Remember When...
my sister and I would lie in bed anticipating Christmas morning.  I have so many fun, wonderful memories with my sister.  I can't wait to see her next week!

That is a sweet shot of you and your sister... but my favorite among your photos this week has got to be your BW. He is just adorable!! =)

Your winter is similar to ours here. It's been cold here this week, but the next 3 days are supposed to be warm again before the temperature will drop on Christmas Eve. :)

Sheri said...

Great captures! My son was just talking about how he used to not be able to sleep on Christmas Eve he was so excited. Now he can sleep and we have to wake him up.

Katie said...

That's such a great verse and shot for Scripture & a Snapshot! I love how the verse seems to be talking to unbelievers and how they believe there is wind, without seeing it. Just as there is God, even though we can't see Him - but we can see His hand at work in our lives.

Jenn said...

OMG!!! The black& white is adorable! I just want reach in a squeeze those chunky monkey cheeks!!!

Oh... and your winter shot brings back such warm memories from our recent trip to Orlando. Ahhh... 60+ and sunny... Maybe those temps will drop just a little around Christmas for you guys! Ya think??? :)

Have a great day!

Love these. The first 2 are my favorites. Our winter in CA looks exactly like yours. I had to visit TN to see snow. And, pucker up? How adorable!

Hi Amber

I had problems this morning reaching your blog from the linky. That black and white one is so cute. I love how you incorporated that verse of scripture into your wind shot.

Joni said...

the bw photo is too cute.

Summer said...

I love your B&W with selective coloring shot! Look at that face. :)

Kelsey @ Seattle Smith's said...

jillconyers said...

Now that is my idea of a great winter. Beautiful photos.

Sooo hard to pick a favorite. I love the sun flare behind the palms, the grains of yolk and Bennet's huge eyes, the superimposed scripture on the wind tossed tree - I think of that so often when I hear the wind in the trees or leaves scuttling along the street, your eye for calming the busy background by going b&w on the framed shot - I love the skewing of the frame and the funny face, too, and the old pic of you and your sis is just sweet - I'll have to pull out my real old ones - I think I have a similar portrait of Susan and me about the same ages.

Great selective coloring shot!
