Actions Speak Louder!

I happened upon this site…   My Four Hens Photography.  She has Photoshop actions for sell.    It’s amazing what a little photo editing will do to a photo.   Of course it helps to have an adorable subject. Warning!  This is a very long post but I want to show you all the fabulous actions and how they look.      Leave me a comment and tell me which one is your favorite!   I’ll draw a name  from all of the comments  sometime next week and will edit 1 personal photo for you using all actions.   That is 22 photo’s :)      Ok…  Leave me some Love!

You live among the least of these
The weary and the weak
And it would be a tragedy
For me to turn away
All my needs You have supplied
When I was dead You gave me life
So how could I not give it away so freely?

And I´ll...
Follow You into the homes of the broken
Follow You into the world
Meet the needs for the poor and the needy God
Follow You into the world

Use my hands use my feet
To make Your kingdom come
To the corners of the earth
Until Your work is done
Faith without works is dead
On the cross Your blood was shed
So how could we not give it away so freely?

And I give all myself
I give all myself
I give all myself to You

Seeing Red

I had a small gathering of Family over Wednesday night for Craft Fest.   We made Valentines wreaths.   I made one at Christmas and decided it would be a fun project for Heart day.    See instructions HERE.    My Cousins, my Sisters  my Daughter and my Daughter in Law came to be creative.   I had limited supply of the wreaths so I only invited a few people.  I don’t like taking inside pictures at night.  The colors are horrid! 


My Mom decided to CRASH the party.   I Love It!    It was alot of fun.  We’ll have to do it again soon.

Wild Blue Yonder

Saturday Carter spent the night with Nammy..  That’s what he calls me..   We watched Monsters Vs Aliens a couple of times; then he decided that a big Red dinosaur came to visit.  He played hide and seek with it for about an hour!  There is nothing better than a little child running through the house and squealing with laughter!  
On the drive  to take him back home Sunday, I had to take some pictures of the mountains.  It was such a pretty clear day and they looked so pretty with the bright white snow.  
Carter was chattering most of the way home.  Then all of a sudden he became very silent.  As quick as a snap of the fingers.  Sound asleep!  I wish I could fall asleep that fast and sleep so sound!   Isn’t he just the cutest!   So peaceful in slumber.
