You Capture: Happy!

What makes you happy?
The default answer is your husband/kids/family.
Don't get me wrong, my hubby and son make me EXTREMELY HAPPY!
I'm a lucky girl to have them.
But, I must say God is my happiness.
Believing in Him and His blessings upon me makes me happy.
Having faith in something bigger than me, than all of us, makes me ecstatic.
God has -Never- failed me.
He has answered many prayers.
Plus, He works miracles.
What's not to be happy about?!
But since I don't have a photo of God,
I will share some of the things He has made, and given me.
He has given me this man who makes me smile like a little school girl still..he's my other/better half. I love him more everyday! The little one is my pride and joy. He looks like Daddy and acts like Mommy. He is the greatest gift I've ever been given!

Snow "fall"
Even though you've been hearing me whine and complain in nearly every post about the snow we've been getting...yesterday I would've taken it all back. We went on a little nature/photo walk and I was in awe at God's beauty surrounding us. It was beatiful.

Animals make me happy. I've always loved animals. we always had some kind of animal when I was little. Horses, pigs, chickens, dogs, cats..you name it! This is my neighbor's dog, they got him the same time I got my beloved rat terrier, Russell, who passed away about 3 years ago! He lived 11 long happy years though! So that makes this guy about 14! Wowza.

Snow never ceases to fascinate me (probably as i don't see as much of it as you!!) It's just always so pretty! Your shots are TOPS again :-) I joined in pixel perfect (first time) this week too.

Loe that first shot of Hubby and child.. That will be in a frame soon, right? What a wonderful post.. and I think you did get photos of GOD!

Samantha said...

That first shot is amazing.

Shari said...

oOOOo~ I totally adore that 1st photo! I love the clarity and how nicely it stands out against the snow. Because dude.. they are in camouflage and they should blend in with their background. LOL I am just kidding.. I do love that shot.

Alita said...

Such great shots chica!

Do you adore CS5? Does it make you happy? I still have CS4 and I love it but I don't know if being out over 1k for CS5 is worth it. Let me know please. :) That would make me happy!

jaime said...

Great photos! I love the one of your husband and son - and the dog is so sweet!

Michelle said...

Great job on all these!

I so love blogs where the wife brags on her hubby and says how much she loves them!! So much better then constant grumbles (although, I know in reality even the best of braggers have some grumbles!)

You're winter shot is beautiful! And that's one of the things that I've found joy in this winter. I may hate the snow, but at times, God can still show me his beauty and creativity!

Serline said...

Could not have said it better myself... have a blessed weekend!
