This week's challenge is texture. I took this picture back in July and I added a texture from Shadowhouse Creations.

I love people who are comfortable in front of a camera and my friend M is. I was so excited to take pictures of her and her precious baby girl. This baby is the perfect example of , "A surprise is something you didn't know how much you needed 'till you got it".

Iheartfaces-We Are Family

This week's challenge is We Are Family. This is my brother in law and his boys. He was just about to baptize his oldest boy. I know I should have been praying with them, but I saw this and my heart melted. I've had my beefs with him in the past, but I've never questioned his devotion to his children and my sister. I'm glad he's their daddy and her husband.

It was June in Texas with not a tree in sight and I'm an amateur in every sense of the word, you get what you get :P. It's still my sister's favorite of her boys.

This week's Iheartfaces challenge is faces. Not just any faces, but one taken between December 1, 2009 and January 12 2009. This is one of my favorite faces in the world.

This is my Uncle Vern. Because of him and his wife, I had a sense that I was actually worthy of love. I had safety, I had fun, I had joy, I had rest, and I learned of faith when I was with them. He's pretty sick now, just had a defibrillator and a pace maker put in and has diabetes, but you can't tell it from this picture. He is doing what he does best, loving a little girl (in this case my absolutely precious niece!!). Grateful is too small a word for what he and my Aunt Sandy poured into me.
