Picture Post #1




Cate over at Sweetnicks has given me a great idea. She is posting a picture every day on her blog. Not just of her recipes but from her life and what's going on. I think it's such a good idea that I've decided to have a picture post once a week. I think it will be fun. I know that I really enjoy when other bloggers post pictures from their vacations, holidays, etc. I especially love seeing pictures on blogs that I visit often. Even though the internet is a virtual world, it kind of gives the feeling that you know that person, at least a little bit!

I've tried moving these pictures around a bit but no luck. I wanted to post captions under them but as usual, I'm having a problem doing that. Anyhow, one of the pictures is of my youngest son opening his Christmas gifts at his grandma's house with his cousin, the other one is me with my precious little granddaughter Farah (aka Butterball) and the other picture is of my stepdad being a real sport. Zach decided to make him a balloon "hat" and he was a real sport by letting me take his picture with the hat on!!!!! Hope you enjoy them! I'll be back tomorrow with a recipe!!!

Great pictures... I agree about blogs that make life personal...

AND, try "PICASA 3"... Google it and you will be able to downloud it free. It is a convenient program to add captions, make collages, mozaics, etc.

it is a google product, so it is easy to use with BLOGGER

Those pix make me smile out loud! I think I need a balloon hat... to go with my work outfit when I have to go into the office! LOVE IT!

I see several blogs I follow now posting more family pix, and one in particular has a separate photo journal of sorts. I keep meaning to be more disciplined about updating "my other blog" but but life is sooo dull, grins. Well, I do intend to get on this photo wagon. It's just so nice to see our friends!
