Black and White Wednesday "Snow bunnies"

017

Found Dahlia in a pouty mood so I threw a hat a scarf on her (funny, that didn't improve her mood at all) and ran for my camera.


The picture below was my entry for this weeks photo challenge at iheartfaces as my best face photo for 2010. I normally would have picked a smiley face but something about this "diva" look spoke to me so I entered it.

And the voting for this challenge is by the public so..........(shameless plug coming)

.......if you're so inclined you could pop over there and vote for....ummm.....mine, if you like. It's number 370. Thanks!! I owe you one.

So, onto some snow bunnies just having some fun in the snow.

Join with Lisa for some great black and white photography.

And "Miss Pouty Diva face" one more time.

She just makes me smile.

Update: A sweet bloggy friend needs our help. Shannon from Daisy Dreams is days away from her referral of her little boy from Ethiopia and nowhere near her fundraising goal to go and get him home. She's holding a raffle at her site - mythreeflowers.blogspot.com with some really great winning items. Hop over and check them out.

Happy Wednesday. Stay warm.

Love these and that pouty face! I have to say I'm a bit jealous of your snow...I grew up in the snow and miss it every winter here at the beach! Happy New Year to you and your beautiful family!

Sometimes (only sometimes!) I wish we have snow here, too.

Dahlia puts on a great diva-ish pout... love it! I think I love it just a tad more in B/W! =)

Love the sister kissy face pictures!! I think every girl should have a kissy face picture :) Looks like it's business as usual in your neck of the woods. Enjoy the winter!

How is it possible that sweet girl of yours is so beautiful even with a pouty face? I'm heading over to vote in a minute.

It just boggles my mind that you have so much snow on the ground and I'm looking threw my window at the swaying palm trees and 75 degree weather. I'm sorry...I know that was really mean to write. ;-)

Happy Wednesday Wanda!

Hugs,
Grace
