I Heart {Laughing} Faces

This week's theme at i Heart Faces is Laughter, a great week made even better by the fact that this week's judge is the incomparable Ree Drummond - the Pioneer Woman herself! See her linked over there in my sidebar under "Blogs I Heart"? I do, I really do! She was one of Time Magazine's Top 25 Bloggers of 2009! I've seen some of her posts garner over 18,000 comments. And now there is a chance she might be stopping by my blog! Isn't that intimidating?! If you've never entered a photo at i Heart Faces before, this would be the week to start!

My kids entry is the little Beast preparing to peg me with a snowball on his very first snow day. I love the genuine fun and humor in his adorable little face. That day in the snow is one of my favorite memories because we all laughed so hard. BTW, daddy made that perfect snowball then coached the little Beast to throw it at me...



My adult entry was taken almost exactly a year ago at a rare breakfast out after church. The little Beast was trying to make faces at me and it cracked his daddy up! Maybe you can tell from the picture, maybe not, but my husband has the world's BEST laugh - he puts everything he has into it!



Blogger is cutting off the right-hand edge of each photo for some reason, but you can click on it to view the whole thing in GIGANTIC form if you'd like...

Looks like Beast really got his daddy laughing! Love the snowball picture! I can only imagine what was going in that little head!

Melinda said...

Both of your entries are fantastic! I love the devious little grin in the first and the "story" in the secon is great!

Julie Rivera Photography said...

Both are so good for the theme this week! That is one nicely formed snowball, too. :) I haven't yet had the chance to shoot in snow but I understand it can be difficult with the harsh reflection. I see none of that in your image. And how funny is your husband? Aside from a fun capture, good for you to pull the camera out at breakfast.
