The Best of 2013

I take a lot of photos. (I know that is a shock). I had the thought of doing an end of the year photo recap of some of my favorites and was then reminded of the thought when I saw that Pam was doing a 13 for 13 end of the year photo link-up. However, as much as I tried, I couldn't limit myself to thirteen. (And I really tried). So, then I went with thirteen catagories ... and still ended up with sixteen I think. : ) Ah, well.

It was bittersweet looking over the past year and seeing milestones and how much our family has changed in just the last twelve months. I could have spent a lot longer looking and chosen a lot more pictures so it's probably good that I limited myself.

Best I Didn't See What Was Going on In the Photo Until Later Shot:

Hint: Look to the right of the birthday girl at what B is doing to E. I died when I saw what I cropped out of the picture initially!

  1. Way to work that link-up to your best advantage! I am so impressed. :-)

    And your photos are so inspiring -- your action shots in soccer are fabulous, love the music ones with the lighting and composition. And refrigerator boy? I am so glad that doesn't just happen at my house. Thanks for linking up.

  2. Wow, these are all so much fun to look at. I think I especially like the shot with momma. I joke about my older children not being in many shots, but this momma is rarely in any photos. I now have a third "vow" this year...I will be in more pictures.

    1. I am the same way – I have very few as well. Something I’m also trying to do better about!

      Thanks for stopping by and Happy New Year!

  3. Oh, I just love your photos - the "best of the boy shots" just melted this mama's heart (having three boys-now-almost-men myself - oh those days...) And I love the picture of the kids all playing their strings...how sweet!

  5. Wonderful!! I am tempted to go through all my photos and do the same thing. Except I have 100 other things to do. Ha.
