    What we would give to have weather nice enough to swing! Today we are still hunkered down from the blizzard that blasted through our part of the nation. But, at least the sun is out- I will find my JOY (OLW) in that!
    Anna is precious! Have great day Ali!

    I like how the pinkie toe on her left foot is bent all the way down, and that she chooses to hang on to the rope with her right hand and the chair arm with her left. Great pic!

    I am so jealous if you took that picture today. We just got covered with a half inch of ice today and 12 inches of snow last week. I don't think the snow from our first storm at the end of Dec has melted yet, and the remnants of the last 8 storms are still on top of that. What I wouldn't give for a day about 50. She is absolutely adorable, a perfect mix of you and Chris. Thanks for helping me capture the little moments of life, for I find some of those pictures are my favorites. Here to living vicariously through Anna and hoping it will be warm here soon!!!!

    The photo made me so happy that I forgot I was on a blog and was looking for the "like" button -- wanted to press it again and again. What an awesome capture!

    So sweet! -Some photos just capture something special that is so difficult to put into words. . .this is one of those. 'I love everything about it' just doesn't do it justice. Beautiful!!
