Who me?!?
This little guy is always giving me the best expressions… whenever I can get him to stand still!

Photo Challenge Submission


I am trying to work through as many photo challenges as I can. Not only does it give me some deadlines (though I’m right on the cusp of missing this one) but it helps me become a better photographer.

The first photo for January’s theme of resolution is what first popped into my head when I thought of resolution… pixels.

Shot of the pixels from my T.V.

Did you know what the pixels on your LCD TV looked like? Now you do.

Next was what usually pops into my head when I think of resolutions… excuses.

Fife chewing on my shoe.

The dog ate my resolution.

And lastly, what I should be (and starting a week ago, am) doing… working out.

I work out.

Stetson Valley Cross Fit.

That’s all for this month. Maybe my resolution should be to post these things more than 9 hours before the deadline.


Look what I can read!

This little guy loves to read from Richard Scarry’s Best Word Book Ever. He loves to show off even more.

What’s more fun than nap time? Especially when your little darling has been crying all day.

The amazing folks over at I heart faces have a weekly photo contest, and this week’s theme is ‘Best Face Photo from 2011′. My first thought was to submit a picture of the McCarrel family – they just look so happy in this photo! Don’t you agree?


So, wish us luck! And while you’re at it, go check out some of our competition!
