Photo Contest Specifics - and a reminder!

(One of my brothers)
Okay - for those of you who are still looking for the perfect photo to submit . . . hurry up. You've only got until the end of the month to email your entry to:
I also wanted to give some details on judging and the like.
The top three photos will be selected by an impartial judge (friend of mine :).
THEN - those three photos will be on my blogpage and anyone who hits my page can vote on the cutest photo. So - after March 1st, you'll want to check in regularly to see if your photo has been selected and/or vote for the cutest one.
This is so much fun!

Good Luck!

My Valentines

Here's a picture of Lily Ann and her daddy. We had a picnic tonight at a beautiful and historic park in our city. We took the city bus and had a great time. I love being married to that man. And I adore being the mother of Lily Ann. I couldn't ask for better company on Valentine's Day.

My Little Teacup

. . . . . . . Lily Ann has taken to drinking tea lately. Most of the tea that I've been drinking is herbal and decaf these days - so one day, after my tea had cooled quite a bit, I offered her a sip. She loved it. And now, she insists on her own cup. She asks for it by name. "Hot tea," she says. And she likes to drink hers from a cup similar to the one I'm using. I must admit, I love having tea with her. It is one of my favorite things that we do together.

Sweetening the Deal

Two baby pictures of me. One of my brothers sent them in as his contest entry. He's been disqualified - but I thought I'd post them for fun.

And NOW - for the new contest incentive . . . I've decided to offer a prize for the cutest baby picture.

The winner of the Spring Baby Photo Contest will receive a jar of my homemade healing salve. It is fantastic for baby rash, diaper rash, chapped skin, dry skin or any little cuts and scrapes. Good for all ages and not made with any petroleum products. You will just love it.

Also - thank you so much for all the entries so far. The pictures are so so so cute. I'm still waiting on pictures from some of you. Keep them coming. Remember - you have until the end of the month! Send your entries to me at:
