Week 10 of 52

Forever In Blue Jeans




I've accepted Carin's challenge, as a Mom, to get back into the picture. The idea is that once a week you take a picture of yourself with one or more of your children. It's that simple. If you'd like you can post your picture on your blog. You can let me know you posted so I can check out your pics. You can check out my previous weeks or Click the button to add your name to the Mr. Linky. So, have fun!



Before church on Sunday I wanted to take some pictures of my good husband with the children. Only it had rained overnight and the yard was very soft. Allen carried me to the redbud tree so I wouldn't ruin my shoes. I think he forgot that I weigh 40 pounds more than when we were married. That short trip across the yard reminded him, though.


And after I took some shots of him and the children, he requested some of us together.



I couldn't decide which one I liked best. Being serious for the camera or him getting ready to give me a peck.







And this would be me and the children giving a tribute to our favorite Pa, Wachter style. We like to mark special occassions with the gift of our talents...LOL. Sometimes we do a skit. Other times we recite a poem or sing a song. Our favorite, is to make up our own song, which is what we did for our Pa on Sunday. Sometime, I will order the correct cable to upload some footage and show you what having 7 kids can do to your brain. I mean, how creative you can be when you have 7 children to spur you on and keep you young. I am the one in the yellow and vacation hat.






And later that day, we celebrated with my parents with a picnic in the park while listening to the symphony. This is my dad with our gang and of course, moi.

  5. Awwwwwwwwwwwww, great photos! I think my favorite (since we're naming favorites today) {wink} would be the one of your hubby carrying you. It's just "REAL" and unposey and perfect! I even like the depth it shows with your foot being closest to the camera and then gradually fading away to you.

    Looks like y'all had a great Father's Day weekend! You look like a super fun Mom!

  15. Great for hubby! There's no way my hubs could even lift me let alone carry me. You must have been very small 40 pounds ago cuz you're not big by any means. You look great!!

    Animals are very fun and loving. Even our cat who doesn't always like being held allows us to torcher him everyday. We love him to pieces.

    Zoo animals help me to appreciate the beauty of God's creation. I would never see a tiger or giraffe or walrus. Zoos are great for that. Farms are really fun too. I don't go to farms much, but it is fun to see cows, goats, chickens and even the barn cats and dogs.

    Fun times this summer

  17. Good, good pictures. Your posts always have "the more the merrier" feeling to them. :) Some of those need to be framed... a professional couldn't have done a better job.
