Week 7 - Perspective

This week is all about perspective. Think about the perspective of young children, animals, bugs etc. and show us your images that represent it...

Friday, February 11, 2011


As I was sorting through old pictures trying to find some that represent me and what I like I realized that there are a lot of things that I like and if I were to include them all this would be a REALLY long post! So I tried to break it down to a few things. I know there are things that I left out but hopefully this will give you a pretty good idea. I also realized that I don't take pictures of things that I dislike and because this is Friday night and I have a crazy day tomorrow I will just list a few things:)

My #1 dislike would probably have to be cockroaches! I don't like to say the word "hate" and try not to use it very often because I don't like my kids to use it but I think I can honestly say that I hate cockroaches!! When I was in high school I had a full time job milking cows and for two weeks out of the year for some reason we would have this surge of cockroaches that would come through. I was paranoid the whole time I was milking because I didn't want to step on one and hear it crunch. I even had to call my sister a few times to come milk for me because I couldn't stand it anymore. I can handle mice, spiders, and most bugs but NOT cockroaches!! Another dislike would probably be rock and roll music. I don't like listening to music that I can't understand the words to. Hmmm... it is late and I can't seem to come up with more dislikes so maybe I will add them later...

Now for the likes...

This photo has two likes in one. I love to read and I love to cook! When I have time that is and it seems like the more kids I have the less time I have to read and bake but I really enjoy doing both.
These are some of my favorite books and cookbooks.
I love the country! This is the dairy that I grew up working on and I love that I was able to learn the value of work growing up where I did.

Love the farm!! I have so many good memories of the farm!
I love my country and the am so very thankful for the freedoms and blessings that come with living here.

I love camping with friends and family! Camping is probably my favorite summer activity. I would go camping every weekend if I could.

Since this is a post about me I thought I would post a pic of me and the love of my life :)

I love to garden. It is a lot of work but I love the reward of the harvest and being able to walk outside to get the things I need for dinner right from the garden. Plus it gives me a reason to get my hands dirty in March when it is too cold to go outside still :)

I love sunflowers. It is probably my favorite flower. My kitchen in my old house had tons of sunflowers in it but I didn't really feel like it went with the decor as well with this house so I did away with most of them but I still have a few sunflower things hanging around.

I love that I live in a place where I can enjoy sunsets like these!

I love photography and that because of it I can take pictures of my kids like these :)

And more than anything I LOVE LOVE LOVE my family!! More than anything I LOVE my family!!!
Last but not least, I love my savior, Jesus Christ.

Well that is me in a nutshell. Maybe I will add things as I remember but this will do for now :)

Bubble Overload

This kid is always busy. I like his eyes in the reflection. And he's concentrating so hard - look at his tongue!

Everything is a contest at our house. Even playing with rubber duckies.

Is he really eating bubbles? I didn't notice at the time. Augh. At least it's cute.

Just a good action shot.  As always, I had super fun subjects. I wish my camera was as good. =o)
