Photo Challenge - The Best of 2009

I found it so difficult to choose favorites/bests for 2009 but I decided that these would do. Dirty little hands and a resigned little "hoppy", what wonderful memories!


A splashy pink bloom opening up as a sign of Spring.

A once familiar summer sight. Krysten, MeriKate, and Abby cooling off in the neighbor's pool.


I've had to go round the back way to post for this challenge because we're in the midst of an ice storm; we have electricity but the HughesNet satellite is down which is par for their course. Odd how it hasn't affected our Direct TV satellite, hmmmm?


Anyway, got this trusty dial-up going here so I'm going to try to post my BEST of 2009 for the Photo Challenge. Don't forget to go over to the Photo Challenge Blog created by Miz Donna down there in the great state of Texas and click on the other participants in the comments to see all their great photos.

Those are so good Brenda. Love the froggie picture such a perfect combination the little hands and that frog. Good luck with your storm. We have sunny skies but it's only 3 deg.

Love the froggy picture! I could have shared a few of those myself. I sure wish it was warm enough to go swimming! Hope you all stay warm this weekend and the ice goes away soon!

Children, blooms, and a frog... Perfect! Love them all. I have a little ceramic frog that looks very much like that one. Such a cute shot!

Blessings,

Great photos.
It's an excellent idea to pick a photo with kids in the pool in the middle of an ice storm.
