Some Funny Resolutions and Some Pictures

I Heart Faces is doing something with their logo this week.

I have no idea if I did this correctly or not.

This was the absolute best we could do today

with our frigid weather!

My models are annoyed.

And they want a pay increase.faces 004 faces 003 I am submitting this photo into the I Heart Faces logo photo contest. By entering, I am granting I Heart Faces LLC permission to consider my photo for use in the marketing and promotion of their website.”

Geez Louise, you are FUNNY! Those pictures are da bomb... and yeah, I think at least a good ice cream sundae is owed to each of those adorable boys! Fab-u-lous, chickie! I'm laughing at the resolutions, too.. sort of. I would be at the final year on each of them, IF I made resolutions. But around here, I try to just keep up with one day at a time....

Muthering Heights said...

Those resolutions were so funny!!

Your photos are awesome!!! All the best models are cranky...it's all part of the job, right?? LOL!

Baloney said...

Happy New Year!

SKELLER said...

chuckling all the way thru your post. yes, your models do look a little less interested than they usually are in your photographic pursuits. hehe. been there, done that. I'm giving *my* models a break. [maybe all the way til ... next week ;-) ].

Happy New Year to you and your family!!

ps. I NEVER make resolutions. So my track record not breaking them is pretty good.

Grandma J said...

Holy Cow! I love your resolutions. I made one...I will read the bible from start to finish. It's broken down into daily segments on a website and its actually kind of neat.

the pictures of the kids are great. I hope you win.

Sonya said...

Your modes are adorable:) they probbaly don't want to hear that word..adorable.

The resolutions are so funny..lol

I made only one resolution: to smile more:)

Drew said...

I can just imagine what your models must be telling their mothers. "This week the crazy lady down the street made us hold up I ♥ Faces signs. She wouldn't leave us alone!" Time to ante up with some candy or something. Those boys usually have a weakness for some kind of bribe. This week I used threats with my son. As you can tell, it didn't go over so well. :)

blueviolet said...

I love your creative photos and those resolutions are hilarious!

No resolutions for me. I know my limitations.

kleineklein said...

Tezzie said...

Kyla said...

What a hoot! Love the photos AND your resolutions list. lol ;)

Lyndsey said...

The little guy on the left cracked me up, he looks like he has about a million other places he would rather be! How funny. I love your resolutions also, mine for this year is to try and do new things with my boys. It doesn't have to be fancy or expensive, just to expose them to new things, so we will see how that goes!

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Cute photos, Rebeckah. I laughed all the way through your list. I don't make resolutions, probably because I know I won't follow through.

PicsbyMic said...

I love it! Very creative work! I love the first one with the heart upside down... too funny!

Angie - The Arthur Clan said...

Oh Rebeckah - could you be any funnier?! This whole post had me laughing out loud.

You did your I Heart Faces entry perfectly. Now I think you should take your models out for pizza or something. ;)

Liked the resolutions. I make the same resolution every year in which I resolve not to make any resolution 'cuz I'd just break it anyhow. ;)

My resolution this year was to not make any resolutions. However, upon stepping on the scale this morning...I realized maybe that wasn't such a good idea : )

Those boys are adorable! Great shots even if they were grumpy (actually I think the grumpy gives them character.

Mighty M said...

I made a few resolutions in my head, but haven't written anything out yet. I like the boy who is all bundled up and ready to get back outside already! :)
