Before I announce the random winners of The Vintage Pearl "Shutterbug" necklace and the "Mom's Gonna Snap" t-shirt from Clickin' Moms, I wanted to share a few of my favorite photos entered by you!!

It is such a joy to watch children having fun in the tub!

I just love the game face!!
I can't help but wonder what he did next.

That expression is just too cute for me!

Capturing memories like this one.................

 Yep, she ate the whole cupcake like this, according to her momma.

Hehehehehe-reminds me of my childhood!

 Ummmm, this one does too!  This one belongs in her senior year book.

 A frequent moment between siblings that is not captured enough.

Again, photos like this is why photography (photos in general, for that matter) make me smile from the inside, out.

Wonder what she is thinking?

I am a cute little old man!!

Congratulations Chelsea! You lucky duck you! You better hang on tight to that necklace whenever you're in Texas because I just might come hunting it down! And, btw, I've always loved that shot of yours!

Nicolasa @ {My}Perspective said...

This was so fun! There were so many great photos! Thanks for hosting! I look forward to the next time! Will you have a new button that I could put on my blog?

Karli @ The Bonnie 5 said...

WOW - what a great post! So much talent and inspiration here. I'm not familiar with all of the blogs listed, and I'll have to check them out. I agree with you....the grandfather/grandson one got me a little teary too. Precious!

Kristin said...

Awww, thanks Amber and Karli. Amazingly enough, my 6 year old daughter snapped that picture when I let her play around with the big camera while we were at the livestock sale. It is one of my all time fav's. I'm hoping she'll have my love of photography.
