There’s a group called “The Creativity Project” that I’ve found through my sweetest friend in the world, Beckalicious Becky Adams (who blogs at THE best blogspot in the world, Life With Kaishon. They have a monthly theme, and they send readers from blog to blog to read each post. It’s a VERY cool idea. I didn’t make it into this month’s circle, but I decided to do a blog about the theme, anyway. It’s “Faceless Photos”, and I really love that theme. I wish I took more faceless photos; they oftentimes capture the essence of a person or situation even more than a photo with a face. Instead of trying to interpret an expression, you actually SEE what it is that is happening. Here are the photos that I would have chosen from if I were going to play along. Which one would I have picked? I don’t know… how about you?
Decided that I better put SOMETHING here to let WordPress know that I haven’t totally abandoned my site! Too many posts from the past; I would be heartbroken to lose everything. And who knows.. maybe I’ll start blogging again.
Just look at that precious smile. Angel, right? What nobody knew was that behind that angelic countenance lay the mind of a brilliant criminal. IB built a profitable business in the trade of black market elbutts. While his sweet mother was slaving over a computer blogging and his metrosexual father was at the spa, getting yet another mani/pedi, IB would sneak out to the barn and conduct business:
When the Feds got wind of the stinky black market trading, they quietly tried to locate a reliable witness. When they stumbled upon JB, they couldn’t believe their good luck. All it took to make him roll over was the promise of a lifetime of premium oats, bran mash, and sweet alfalfa. Soon, it was all over. IB didn’t know what hit him til it was too late:
But IB comes up for parole in six months, and Obama just legalized the sale of horsemeat for human consumption. JB, you better watch your back, buddy…. ;

Brrr. Wind chill this morning was, I think, about 6 degrees. AND it was the first day back to school for the boy, so we had to actually get up and out in it. Blessings: a) not much traffic because Cobb Country schools are still out on break, which was really nice, and b) we have central heat in the house, a great heater in the van (and seat warmers…woot!) and closets full of warm clothes. Many are not so fortunate. I need to remember that.
I’m not good at capturing silly photos. We have a small family, and I guess we’re boring. Or I’m scared of payback. Or something. Anyway, I Heart Faces has a “Silly Holiday Photos” theme this week (no judging or winners picked.. just show your silly pics), and I just don’t have much at all. Well, except for this little collage that I put together of my dear hubby playing cornhole on Christmas Eve with the fam. I couldn’t stop myself from snapping his face whenever he tossed, and when I showed him the photos later, he laughed SO hard! Do you get bonus points for silly faces? If so, he won by a landslide!
For some really funny, silly, belly-laugh-out-loud photos, head to I Heart Faces and check out the other entries. At the very least, go check out my friend Becky’s post; it almost made me spew coffee out my nose! And here’s to 2012; may it be filled with beautiful photos and belly laughs!
We’ve had a great Christmas break (sad that it’s almost over, though). We went to Asheville, NC and visited the Biltmore for their Candlelight Christmas:
And we stayed at the Grove Park Inn:
We really enjoyed touring the Biltmore grounds and the conservatory:
And we stopped at Tallulah Gorge, where I spotted these beauties:
We also visited my mom in Nashville:
and we found the American Picker’s Antique Archaeology store in downtown Nashville:
The weather has, for the most part, been beautiful:
And we enjoyed all that Christmas had to offer:
We brought in the New Year with fireworks:
and a toast:
And we’ll finish off the day with a few traditional favorites:
Resolutions? My biggest ones are to be “in the moment” more. To stop trying to see EVERYTHING through the lens and simply “be there” to enjoy. To be kinder. To read my Bible daily. To MOVE more. How about you? Are you ready for the New Year? I hope it’s your best year yet… Happy New Year!
