Top 5 Photos - First Quarter Twenty Twelve

It is hard to believe that it is already the end of the first quarter of 2012!  Time is just flying by these days!  This evening I ignored some other obligations and looked back through my photos to pick out my favorites.  Then I had to narrow them down to just five.  Here they are in no particular order ...

Alex - Top 5
I love this photo of Alex because you can see the joy of playing in the snow on his face.  I took this shortly after he asked me to bury him in the snow.  He was probably freezing but still having a great time.

Nick - Top 5
This photo of Nick makes me smile - even if it isn't the sharpest.  I took it while he was practicing his spelling ... doing hip-hop spelling.  Certain weeks the kids get to make up their own spelling practice.  He decided he wanted to rap his.  I recorded it and laugh every time we watch it.

Also, this was only one of two decent photos I have of Nick this quarter.  He has decided to nickname me paparazzi and run from the camera almost every time he sees it.  :)

Keira - Top 5
Keira is always a willing model.  And I might be biased, but I think she is beautiful.  We took this photo one afternoon while on a walk through our neighbor's woods.  We had just gotten several inches of thick heavy snow and I knew the trees would be gorgeous.

All three  - Top 5
Not a technically great photo, but so much fun.  When we visited the zoo recently, we played in the kid's area for a bit.  I asked the kids to climb up on the big spider web and pretend to be dead.

Honey - Top 5
And I always have to be fair and include a photo of Honey.  After all, she's an important part of our family.  In this photo she is jumping up after an abandoned worm nest that was up in a tree and was blowing in the wind.  She was obsessed with it for a few days.  Sitting under it and barking at it.  She's so funny sometimes.


Now to get back to those obligations.  :)

These are all great shots of your kids. Your son looks so happy in the snow, and I love the idea of rapping spelling words, very fun! Your daughter is beautiful, and your dog is so cute :)

Your son's expression in the snow sums up how I feel when I am in the snow. I love it!!! Now that I live in Florida, I rarely experience, but when I do it's such a treat.

The spider web is really cool. My son would love that.
