Thought this fit here

Last week I was talking with a couple of friends about Father's Day gifts.  One friend mentioned that she had seen some cute blocks with pictures on them.  We thought it would be fun to make for our hubby's to put on their desks at work, but instead of the small typical craft size blocks we decided to go bigger.  We had a 6 inch square beam cut into blocks to use. 

I wish I had pictures of the blocks the other gals made because we all did different things.  One painted hers yellow and did one block with her kid's artwork on it and one with black and white photos.  Another friend stained hers and used recent photos of each child and a quote on top, and another friend did black with green paper and photos on all 6 sides.
I really wanted to use the pictures that I have been taking each Father's Day ever since Jake became a dad in 2002.  I decided to use 3 blocks and spell dad across the top.  

The picture below helps you see a bit better the size.

Miss Personality

This little cutie has a stubborn streak.  I had to meet up with her several times and finally with Tamsyn's help we were able to get her to crack a smile.  

ok, ok... I will let you take my picture AGAIN.

A little tongue

Waving to all my adoring fans --

starting to get a bit boring people...

I mean really!  How many pictures do you have to have?

This is my panting dog impersonation -- whatcha think?

Pucker up!

ok -- I'm outta here

The Littlest "C"

We decided to do a spur of the moment photo shoot of this cute little 6 month old... she was quite serious for most of it, but adorable nonetheless.

And her big brother -- who gave me exactly 22 seconds of his time :)

Girls' Camp Fundraiser

To raise money for Girls' Camp, our YW worked hard on a dinner, show, and dessert auction. We also did quick photo sessions before the dinner. The night was pretty successful with us raising right around $800.
Here are a few of the pics that resulted from the evening.
