Day 9: Passions and Hobbies

Harold is my subject again for this one.   No… I’m not saying his passion and hobby is television watching…lol…but I am saying it’s politics.  He’s watching something on Fox news here…..I’d like to say Megyn Kelly (because I love her)…but it’s more likely Glenn Beck Winking smile  Ruby just LOVES sitting on the couch with daddy!  I think perhaps that’s her passion for this time.

Day 8: A gift from the heart

Day 8 is “A gift from the heart: what they have said, promised, done, given

Harold is my subject today…and what he has given me is a godly husband, a leader of our family, the promise of continually seeking out the Lord’s will for our life and family, a father to our daughter, and a teacher to us both….all the while holding up and being here for his consistently slightly frazzled wife.

Day 6: Who THEY love

You would not believe, how CraZy excited Ruby gets when she sees her cousin S…if only I could get a picture of that!  S is amazing with Ruby, and it is just a delight to watch them together.  Must be all that practice from being a big sister, that makes her so good with Ruby.

Day 7: Generations

I had a hard time picking this picture… there were quite a few cute ones with Grampa …but…I love how she’s eating his zipper in this one…so it wins SmileJoyOfLOVE Day 7 Generations

I played around with metering and the camera settings and as it turns out…spot metering is a bad idea for us… ha!  Ruby’s face kept coming out white white white…

….and yes…I’m missing Day 6…but that’s because I decided to use a picture of Ruby and her cousin…and I didn’t want to post that unless her parents are OK with having her picture on my blog.

Day 5: What you love to hate…

The bottles… they’re that tiresome thing that always seems to need washing…  they used to be a constant reminder of failure and brought pain…now…they’re both a freedom (I can go anywhere…anyone can feed Ruby) and a chore.Day 5

Day 4: What they Wear

A sweater knit by Grandma, is worn constantly….it’s washed and put back on…washed and put back on…I will always remember Ruby in this little sweater, with this little dress which is the first thing that I sewed for her…her “Thanksgiving Dress”.  And she wears this dress….and more like it, over longies…knit by mom….  it’s like her little baby uniform…

Day 2: How she looks

Well, I'd really like to replace this photo....  with one where the subject is not blurry....and where you don't see our unmade bed behind her with the mattress peeking out.... (I even tried to blur the background in GIMP...but I have zero experience in any real image manipulation.... )

...but this facial expression... the concentration.....this is the one...


this picture (above) a friend did a little blurring for me in photoshop…below is the originalJoyOfLove 028 (2)
