Photo Hunters - Squeaky

This week we had a tough assignment, Photo Hunters had to take a photo of something "squeaky".

Lucky for me, this mouse only pretends to be "squeaky"

Merry Christmas!

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.
We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only,
who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

John 1:14

Are you willing to believe that love is the strongest thing in the world - stronger than hate, stronger than evil, stronger than death - and that the blessed life which began in Bethlehem nineteen hundred years ago is the image and brightness of the Eternal Love?
Then you can keep Christmas.

Henry Van Dyke

May your Christmas be filled with unexpected blessings, the sweet fellowship of family and friends, much love and laughter, and a renewed appreciation for the most amazing gift we have ever received - Jesus.

Merry Christmas from all of us here at The Production.

Thematic Photographic - Quiet

Carmi is about to post a new Thematic Photographic Challenge. But before he does, I'm going to squeeze in and post these photos of this week's theme, "quiet."

As you can imagine, life in a family of nine reaches pretty high decibels. Somedays I feel like my head going to downright explode from the noise. So I cherish this magical time, though too brief, when quiet descends on our home like a warm blanket and cuddles us with it's warm embrace. That magical quiet called naptime.

Photo Hunters - Wide

Photo Hunters were searching for a photo of something "wide" this week. This was a tough challenge for me. Finally settled on this photo of my boy Bear in a wide-brimmed hat.

I love this picture!

Photo Hunters - Favorite

Today Photo Hunters are posting pictures of their favorites. I wonder what different kinds of things we will see. The theme is so broad.

Tonight we decorated our Christmas tree. Of the hundred or so pictures we took of the process, this one is my favorite. It's a nice picture of our Christmas tree (which as you can see, lists to one side) but it's my favorite because of the two little people captured in it: Shorty, my almost 7 year old son and his little sister LemLem (3). You can click to enlarge the photo for a better view.

Just so happens that this photo fits Carmi's Thematic Photographic Challenge of "bright" this week too. Yay me!

Photo Hunters - Breakfast

I am really looking forward to gazing upon the deliciousness that will be found today as the Photo Hunters post their pictures of our theme this week - breakfast. Yum.

Somedays my breakfast is simply this:

But I'd much rather it be this:

Calabacitas and pintos. Add an egg to that plate - perfection. I could eat this everyday.

Hungry for more?

Thematic Photographic - Sweet

Thanks to Carmi's Thematic Photographic Challenge this week we've been looking for something "sweet." My daughter LemLem (3) took a long at Carmi's photo and said, "We should get that for dinner...I really want to eat that." I agreed with her.

Here is my "sweet" for the week.

Apple Cobbler a la mode - warm, sweet, delicious

Dessert is always good but this is REALLY sweet and it's calorie-free.
