A little behind, but was able to squeeze my attempt at this theme “shooting through glass” this weekend as my students competed in the State National History Day Competition……
The museum was beautiful and my students did a great job! I was late to the circle so I had them link around me, however you can still check out how everyone else shot through glass by starting with Claire
The theme of interesting perspectives was challenging this month! There was lots to read up on for this and some of the things I tried (based off of the reading) didn’t exactly work out but we had fun trying it out lol
The shots below are inspired by this site about forced perspectives…here I am pouring Youngest out of a water bottle..kind of
Forced perspective was frustratingly hilarious! I also captured some things from the perspective of the pup….
Life is good from her perspective

The February theme for the blog circle is “Food Photography”..which I have decided is hard! I had lots of ideas this month but very little time to execute them! Oh well, I did enjoy it so I plan on spending some more time with food photography in the future I found a great pizza crust recipe so decided to make some calzones and pizza for the girls. They were a hit!
Thanks for stopping by! Check out the food Claire captured this month and then continue around the circle of talented photographers to tempt your tastebuds
This post concludes the Clickin Moms monthly project revolving around different themes for 2012. It was so fun participating in the blog circle and am so proud of those of us that were able to make it through all year! So here is my final 2012 project 12 post about How I view: Holidays:
Christmas kind of snuck up on me this year for some reason so cookie baking took place on Christmas Eve day with lots of help from Oldest and Youngest. They took a break to Skype with family across the country. Christmas Eve includes family that lives in town, munching good food, and opening some gifts. Christmas Morning starts at dark thirty with the pickle ornament hunt and the rest of gift opening. It is always such a joy to watch the girls, they so enjoy both the giving and getting
New Year’s Eve is very family focused for us, involving food, fireworks, and fun. We devoured some delicious and not so nutritious foods (hot wings for youngest, delicioso pulled pork- I tweaked the recipe a bit by adding a jalapeno and chipoltle in adobo sauce instead of the green peppers..so awesome- for non fire breathers, and decadent desserts!)Youngest is our firework monster so despite the rain and fog out she went to blow some things up..it was very short lived since it started to pour but she was happy! We then started to compete in our family “Minute to Win it tournament..of Doom!” These little games were way more challenging than expected but lots of fun!
Finally New Year’s Day is never complete without my husband taking a noon polar bear plunge! When we lived in the Northern part of the country this was a much crazier thing, however despite Christmas being 75 degrees, we hit a rapid plunge in temps so the 20 mph winds and 47 degree temps qualified as cold Last year Youngest did it too but it was actually cold today so she opted to be a fan instead . We follow his annual plunge by trying out a local restaurant, this year’s choice was a winner since I can hardly wait to have the blackened mahi-mahi sandwich again lol!
Thanks for taking a moment and checking out how I viewed the holidays. Follow the blog circle to see how Dawne views the Holidays. I hope you continue to visit my blog through 2013 as I embark on some more fun projects Happy 2013!
The Theme this month is “Fatherhood”. Father’s Day was a relaxing family trip to the pool but those shots aren’t making it for the project 12. Instead I’m leaving you with some images of my DH with his girls, “learning” (and I use that term lightly) to play chess, one of Oldest’s favorite games. He loves to be the silly guy with them and they eat it up!!!
PS. Do you notice the puppy smiling in the corner? This is what she does as SOON as she sees Daddy lay down on the sofa in the evening, she “smiles” at him to get him to take her for a walk
Thanks for checking to see how I view Fatherhood! Follow the circle to Dawne and see how she views fatherhood
Sometimes motherhood is the mundane…laundry, cooking, cleaning, transporting, working, breaking up arguments and dealing with eyeball rolling (lots and lots of eyeball rolling ) ! Despite the mundane, the magic of seeing my children, interacting with them and seeing them grow into the amazing people they are always makes it worth it. They amaze me on a daily basis. The way I view “Motherhood” is it is the most challenging but rewarding role on the planet
Of course, for me, no post on motherhood would be complete without my fur baby! She is my shadow (she actually was in the shot above just too short to make the scene lol) and she is as certain as my girls that I’m her mama, which is ok by me! We love her to pieces

It started to rain at the end of the day yesterday, just in bits and pieces. In between the heavy stuff youngest said she would help me with my photography challenges since I helped her cut and glue her project .
We headed into the back yard, I stood on the lawn chair, she kneeled and hello high vantage point..at least as high as I could get in the yard :D !! Love these!
P.S. special thanks to oldest for yelling “H-E-Y Y-O-U G-U-Y-S” (Goonies movie quote) from the house looking for us, it definitely got youngest giggling!
Ever since my p52 had the theme “jump” a few weeks ago my youngest has been in love with that type of photo. She is now obssessed with having me capture her jumping Lucky for her MCP actions February P12 themes are “Love” or “Leap”…here is her first “Leap” for February, I’m certain there will be more LOL !
