Photography Challenge Week 17: Someone You Love

I can't pick just one person I love for this week's photography challenge, so I have photos of all my kids this week. On Saturday, we went outside for a "photo shoot," so I have a bunch of pictures to pick from for creating Christmas cards. I snapped over 350 photos. As I'm typing this, there's snow on the ground, so I'm glad we were out last weekend when we could still play in the leaves!

Raina, 7

Photography Challenge Week 16: Something You Made

This week's photography challenge was something you made. My husband and I have been experimenting with making bread on the weekend, and this week we made Cinnamon Raisin Bread. It smelled heavenly while it was baking, and I was pleased with how it turned out. One loaf I put a glaze on top; the second I left plain.

See more things that people made at A Step in the Journey.

Busy Week

We had a busy week last week with Halloween, a choir concert and a band concert making for a few late nights.

When we got to Friday and went to Duluth to run a few errands, the little boys just couldn't stay awake.

They even missed the colorful sunset on the way down.

Photography Challenge Week 15: Your Shoes

I gotta say, I felt a little silly taking pictures of my shoes for the photography challenge this week! My thought process went something like this:
What would my shoes look like against the sidewalk? I better include these leaves, too.

Or maybe just on the grass would work.

Look, here's some purple clover--is that too distracting?

I don't have a lot of shoes, in fact I think my husband probably has more than I do. I look for shoes that are comfortable and easy to get on and off for running errands, dropping off and picking up kids from school or activities, bringing out trash or recycling, or taking a walk with the family.
