and didn't post my day 7 pic for the photo a day challenge on the Fiskars Blog even though I had taken the photo and was all set!!
Today's prompt was a "Portrait".
Now I did take a pic of me in the true hold your camera out in front, slightly up (so you don't see my chumpy chin ;0) style, because it was my last day of being 43 and a good opportunity to take the once a year pic right!! Birthdays don't particularly bother me, its just a number as far as i'm concerned... so i will show you that one....
But this is my other portrait one that I am really happy with, Christopher with one of our dogs - "Chase" He can spend hours in the yard with him and even though he looks scary cause he's big and brindle, he really is a big softie who loves all the attention in the world and in particular loves Chris.
I snapped this from the back stairs while these guys were down in the driveway and oblivious to me being there.
Day 8's prompt is "Sport or Exercise" which everway you choose to interpret it.
So I chose to interpret it through watching our kids exercise (a bit naughty, not sure if thats exactly what Kim had in mind ;0)? )but it was while the kids were having a soccer match. Now I actually took this pic on Friday afternoon, cause it is such a rareity these days for all the kids to be home at the same time let alone "playing" together! It was so nice to see them having a good friendly, slightly competitive game of soccer ;0) Maddison and Jesse on the left versing Nick and Christopher on the right and me participating from the verandah behind the camera :0)
Here's the mottley mob, wheelie bins for goals and slight sledging on the side ;0)
So now I am up to date with my prompts and I am off to supervise the cooking of my birthday cake - mud of course and being made by Maddison, we are doing it double because tomorrow is Nicks Birthday and normally we have a mudcake each, but I have to work tomorrow so won't be able to cook it. Its a big birthday week in the house, Jesse on the 5th (yes we had mudcake then too!!) and then me and Nick!
Enjoy your Sunday.
