Birthday Craziness



made this week
Birthday Week.
This is a good time for Birthday week.
Doesn't EVERYONE you know
have a Birthday in May?
It's crazy : ).

Crazy, I tell you.

I actually made Kaishon
and my sweet little nephew Ben
put on Birthday hats
and pretend to blow out candles : )
But in the end, I decided,
to go ahead and go with one of my
favorite Birthday shots
of Kaish and Sabria from January.

It's not technically a good picture.
But, I think that is the greatest thing
about it.
Everything doesn't have to be
technically PERFECT
in order to be beautiful!

Don't ever think your pictures
aren't perfect just because other people
don't always love them.
If you love them,
well, then,
that really is the most important thing : ).

What is your busiest Birthday month of the year?

Well said! But honestly, what you captured here with the glow on their faces is actually a pretty tough thing to achieve. I love how this was captured.

Oh, and I forgot to mention, 2 of my 3 kids have birthdays in May. What is it about that month? I guess I can only blame myself since they were very much planned. :)

It's my daughter's bday today too. I'm a little sad cuz she's away at college and it's the first time I've not been with her on her bday. Remind me of that when she returns home for the summer in two weeks and starts driving me crazy! : )

Sneaky Momma said...

I think this shot is a sure winner. Absolutely beautiful. :)
Believe it or not, all of our birthdays are evenly spaced out. It's pretty nice!

Grandma J said...

I'm always celebrating birthdays. I had two grandkids celebrating this last week. October is the busiest I think with four.

Liz said...

I think this is a great birthday picture! Our busiest birthday month is September. 3 nieces, Mom, and BFF's son were all born in September.

Marilyn said...

Great picture. Lots of May birthdays in our family too.

Busy Bee Suz said...

I find that picture to be just PERFECT!!!!

April said...

Another great entry, my friend! I love how Kaishon's eyes are lit up with excitement! October and April seem to be the busiest birthday months for us.

Rebecca Jo said...

October is our busy birthday month! Doesnt it seem like there is just ONE month that really kicks birthday's butt!

Nurse Nancy said...

Juen is our busy month....have already purchased over $40 worth of cards....but I love to send them and love my family!

Erica said...

i love the coloring in this photo- great job!

our busiest bday month would either be feb (my bday, just had a baby this year in feb, my grandpa, my uncle, my cousin) or aug but not for just bdays (our anniv, our son was born on our anniv, my parents anniv) isn't it amazing how months go by with nothing going on then everything happens in the same month?

Bonnie said...

Good point! May is a busy bday month in my family too. January is also.

Alicia W. said...

Great shot! I love the light :)

I agree with you and the picture you captured is a truly precious moment.

Living on the Spit said...

Actually I have 3 months of craziness from February to April...non-stop.

I love what you said about photos...that is so true...and I just love the photo you posted.

Kameron said...

I love how the candle light glows on their faces!! Grat shot!

mamamia said...

I love that picture. . . i think it IS perfect, really. I love how the cake is bending in the middle, too. Must have been a great cake, and the boys' faces look so cool!

mimi said...

I think it's an awesome picture!

Well said...great shot:)

the monkey's mama said...

exactly!!! It doesn't have to be a well-taken photo to be beautiful. That is the beauty of knowing our worth is not in clarity and composition but in friendship and love...

PS i'm still sad you didn't win anything for your silhouette's entry last week.

Foursons said...

Great choice picking this one!

Brooke said...

I love the darkness and the light in this photo.

The Things We Carried said...

March is the month for us!

I liked the word about pictures. Good advice. I once double exposed a film camera roll of film, and the pictures were scenes of my children outside with second scenes, ghostly, over the top of the first pictures. My children are grown and i love the pictures today. it is as if they are whispers of the children they once were.

Tiaras & Tantrums said...

I love it!

Jenni Jiggety said...

I love birthday candle pictures!!!

I think that will work. It's a flikr group and it is really fun. It's kind of scary though.

Rachel said...

I love this shot! I love the glow and the happiness!

And MAY is definitely our busiest birthday month too! My kiddo decided to be born early - the day before my own birthday!

Foursons said...

My son was not livid about his hair. He's 7 and because he couldn't see it in the mirror it didn't bother him one bit!

Abby*Lane said...

Wonderful! And I also have 2 with birthdays the same month. 2 of them in April, and 2 of them in May! LOL!

Keeper of the Skies Wife said...

I love this photo!!

Izzy 'N Emmy said...

I love this shot and agree with you. photos are the memory in the making. That's what counts the most.

Tricia Nugen said...

Great photo! I love the glow of the candles and the sparkle in their eyes! Great job!
Thanks for the comments!

Martha (FL) said...

Great picture, and I too agree, if the picture "speaks" to you then it is beautiful. My photos are my art, and just because someone doesn't like something I do, doesn't make it wrong! By the end of this week we will be in PA!

I love what you said. It doesn't have to be perfect...and can still be beautiful! May is definitely a busy birthday month for us too. Crazy!

P.S. I totally forgot to say, our book club just read "Twilight" because a few of the girls hadn't read it yet (I already had!). Next we are reading "The Last Lecture," which I am a little scared of just because it deals with some sad stuff. But I read "Water for Elephants" last year and LOVED it! What else are you reading lately? I am always looking for some more good books for my bedside table!

Melinda said...

Amazing photo! The candlelight and the faces...soooo perfect!

Katarina said...

I love the candle glow. So cool. Nice job!

theArthurClan said...

I think this is a great capture! I take the most horrible shots of candles when the lights are out. I'm very impressed!

AJ said...

Great shot!

Billykidd said...

I really LOVE your entry this week! Gorgeous light!

Becca said...

This really is beautiful (Even if it's not technically perfect, not that I would know!) :-) I love it!!! i love that you tried to stage it like I did too!

jennykate77 said...

Great pic!

I think my busiest birthday time is from the end of September to the beginning of November...like 8 birthdays!
