Hattie And The Big Blue

Yesterday's photo assignment was "My Sky". But yesterday we had a clear blue sky, not a cloud in sight and, even though we live next to an air base, not even an airplane in sight!

(and, y'all, I am freakishly afraid of birds so there is NO way that was gonna happen!)

So I took my sweet girl outside and we had ourselves a little photoshoot!
 First she balanced on my feet and played airplane (only this time she switched it to bird!).  This has always been one of her favorite games, but it used to be sooooooooo much easier on my end!

 Once my thighs started burning I had her stand up and I stayed on the ground and asked her to look up and see what she could see....
 Because she has somehow inherited Steve Austin's bionic eye, she saw a plane that was, I am sure, closer to mars than it was to earth.  Just sayin!

 This is about the time she started to get cold and kept raising her arms up into the picture.  The arm that refuses to lose the ugly super secret spy watch that she got for Christmas included ... but shhhhh, it's a super secret.


And, come on now, we all know that sky's are so much better with pretty girls in front of them anyway!

OK, here we go, first week of the new year.........

January 1, 1:37am - just coming in from our friends' New Years Eve party ... she survived an all nighter!! Opened her sweet eyes long enough to put her pj's on!!

January 3, 3:38pm - Signed up for a challenge to run 1,000 miles in 2012 ... these babies are about to get real busy!!!!!  (I made need a new pair soon!)

January 3, 10:49am - five minutes later, it stopped.  Five minutes after that the sun came out.
This was also her last day of Christmas break. That bed head, the pj's ... yeah, she is in for a rude awakening in the morning!!!

January 4, 3:01pm - Hanging (via internet stream) with about 44,000 18-25yr olds as they worship Jesus.  Passion 2012 was ah-ma-zing!!!!  These kids are gonna rock this world for HIM!

January 5, 11:22am - Big girls both at school and Alexis had her grandma day so it was just Eli and me ... he was lonely.  No matter how I tried to entertain him, he just hung out at the window, either lookin for the bus...
... or askin for his mama and daddy (who were off on a babymoon before new bro or sis comes!!)

January 6, 9:25pm - I was told of another challenge for the year that actually gives you tasks of what to take pictures of.  Thought I might try that .... today was things that make you smile!  THESE sock monkey slippers make me smile...
This FACE makes me smile!
And the free fun to be had with a cardboard box makes me smile!!!!

January 7, 10:54pm - Today's task was my favorite.  I was going to include pictures of my people but we had a full, fun day.  So my FAVORITE kind of day is a day SO full that I forget to remember my camera!

Thank you Sara for hosting us!  What a BLAST!  (I will try to do better this year.  Feel free to scream at me if I don't!!!)

So, how was YOUR week?!
