Project 52, Week 39

Project 52, Week 39
Theme: Sweet
For this week I decided to use sweet as in a sweet treat.
I made a chocolate cake last Friday.
By Monday, there was still 1/2 of it left and
 none of the kids were very interested in eating it.
Instead of throwing it away, I decided to dress it up
and had my daughter layer it with cool whip and chocolate pudding.
The result?
It was gobbled up by all.
(I promise I didn't stage this picture. I just clicked away as she ate.
 I love how she looks like she starving hungry and devouring her cake.)
Except for me. I decided it sounded too sweet 
so I had a pulla donut instead. :)

Project 52, Week 38

Project 52, Week 38
Theme: Outside the Line
I've been told that here in CO,
if a fruit tree has branches hanging outside the property line
it's fair game for anyone to pick.
To be on the safe side, we pick trees that are hanging over fences
on the edge of huge fields.
Some apple trees are ready to pick.
Applesauce anyone?

Project 52, Week 37

Project 52, Week 37
Theme: Emotion
I took these pictures without the intent of using them for this week.
However, these are the only pictures I took for the entire week.
Sad, but true.
Luckily, they fit the theme even if they aren't the most clear, bright and focused pictures.
At least my Subject is adorable!
To say this Dolly loves peaches would be a bit of an understatement.
Like father, like daughter.
One evening, he was sharing his peach with her.
She literally had peach juice from head to toe and was loving every bite.
I grabbed my camera and was shooting from right behind my husband's left ear.
I think he may have been a bit annoyed at me, but I didn't care. :)
 Anticipation of the next slice of peach coming her way.
 Excitement that it's getting closer...
She shoves it in her mouth, watching the rest of the peach like a hawk,
 worried it will be gone before she gets another bite.
Elation when he went to get another one
(stomping her feet, clapping her hands and squealing).

Project 52, Week 36

Project 52, Week 36
Theme: The Golden Hour
This week I am settling for a picture that isn't great,
but is good enough. 
Throughout this whole year, I've tried to take my picture during the week of each theme,
 if I can, rather than relying on using a previously taken picture. 
You'd think in sunny Colorado, getting a picture at the golden hour would be a piece of cake.
But all week long I battled clouds or a couple nights I was on the road at the magic hour 
and missed the prime time.
I tried one more time on Thursday night and still had to wait for 
the sun to come out from behind clouds at times. 

I would have liked this picture to be a bit lighter but as I 
was snapping away I seemed to forget all I knew about taking pictures in this setting. 
Such is life. :)

This girl spends hours playing in the backyard,
where the kids have build a tree fort.
This month, I'm linking up to Marcy.
