Writer's Challenge - - 1/22/09

Share the best picture you took last month and explain why it's your favorite

This is my favorite picture I took in December. I should probably explain this a little. This was the first Christmas without my Aunt that passed away in April. This is also the first Christmas my family has been together in five years. This is two of my aunts (my other aunt didn't make it into the picture). I don't have alot of pictures of my aunt that passed away. She loved to take pictures and was always the one behind the camera. Also, I love babies (lol) so many of the pictures I took during family events were of babies. I found a picture of her last night that I took several years ago and it made me very happy. So I have decided to take at least one picture of every person at family events :).

P.S. If you are visiting from Mama Kat's please take a moment to read another one of my blogs. I do not think this is a great example of my best writing (LOL!)

I'm always behind the camera. Always. I made it my mission to get others to take pictures of me with them from now on.
But I like that it the picture means a great deal to you :)

That is a good reminder to make sure to not only make sure people take your picture but to capture every family member!

Did you change your header? It looks great.

Aww, I'm a baby picture taker, too!! I need to make that same promise to myself. We have full family events and somehow I only walk away with pictures of the folks under 5!

I too treasure the family photos more than I ever used to. I found myself taking a lot more at Christmas than I normally do.

And I love your disclaimer at the

I was looking through some old boxes of photos at my moms house todaya nd found some of me and my grandparents at graduation (high school) I stole them for myself, because I don't feel like I have many photos of my grandfather and he's gone now.

I love the self plug at the end.
