Lens Baby Project 52 Challenges for February

Here are my project 52 challenge pictures for my LensBaby group this month.  I love that we are doing this - it challenges me so much each week.  It really makes me look at my technique and creativity with my pictures.

Project 52:  Week 5  {The Color Red}
These were the cupcakes from my friend's ten year wedding renewal.

Project 52: Week 6 {Eyes}
I couldn't resist these sleeping, peaceful eyes.

Project 52:  Week 7 {Furry Friends}
He generally blends into my furniture so I gave him his own mini-photo shoot.  :-)

Another furry friend I captured that week.

Project 52: Week 8  {Bokeh}
Just a fun day of playing outside.  :-)

And one more.  :-)

Our Valentine's Day

Our Valentine's Day this year was really sad.  My father-in-law passed away unexpectedly February 9th - 5 days before Valentine's.  He was a quiet man but a great man.  I love the way he loved my family.  He was always on the look out for something he knew we might want or need.  He bought flowers for the kids the last time we saw them because he knew my little girl loves to pick wild flowers.  I love that he ate 3 pieces of cake at our wedding (after 3 different bridesmaids offered to get him a piece not knowing that he had already had one.)  I love how he sang to my babies when he held them when they were little bitty.  I love that he taught me about it being "boo boo" outside (cold) and about the "wow wows" (the dogs) - definitely things the kids have picked up and will carry with them.  I love that he would tell me his old stories of his army and railroad days after the kids were in bed and my mother-in-law had fallen asleep on the couch.  :-)  I love that he was always up for a good game of cards.  I only got to know him for a short period of time (about 6 years) but I love that he was a part of my life. 

I hope to get some of my favorite pictures together of him and the grand babies to post very soon but for now I will post our Valentine's pictures.  We took these about a week or so before Valentine's day with my photo mom's group.  Our Valentine's Day was definitely filled with love and memories this year but definitely very sad too.  We love and miss you so much Papa Bob!!!

Hugs and Kisses - An I Heart Faces Challenge

I loved this sweet hug between my friend and her little girl at my friend's 10 year wedding renewal.  Little Miss B had had such a great time playing and dancing.  She was absolutely worn out and it was so sweet to see her dance with her Mommy near the end of the reception.   I loved this moment!! 

You can check out other entries on the I Heart Faces website as well.
