I admit...I couldn't just chose one photo. We had a great little walk in our neighbourhood this past weekend. There was a little snow in the air, lots of things to explore, icy patches to slide around on and "crutches" to be picked out in the forest.
We were feeding the birds over at the pond. As we were standing there they came flying towards us. The girls just stood there silent and watched them and the light on this cold day was simply gorgeous.
I went through almost all of my photos from last year but ended up entering this one of my oldest that I took on one of the last days of December. I love the light and that smile that she has been giving me lately. It's her new smile for older girls. She will be 9 years old in a couple of months and she is suddenly very aware of how to pose. Sigh....hard to make it look natural but this one is OK though.
