It's time to vote for Julia

Today is the first day of voting in the Evenflo cute baby contest.) EACH email address can vote once a day until the 15th. I would be so grateful for every vote! No need to scroll down to find this post every day, I've added a link to my side bar. :) Julia is the 3rd baby listed so it should only take a couple clicks of the mouse to vote for her.

In related news: The makers of the Kissaluvs cloth diapers we use requested more photos of Julia besides the one they chose as a finalist. Of course I was more than happy to oblige. I'm still awaiting my surprise that the company sent as our reward. The photo I used to make my new header placed second in a local photo competition. (Two other photographs placed first and third in their categories). It's been an exciting summer for taking pictures!!

The following is the email I just got this evening from Hp. I'd completely given up on that contest. Now that's a pleasant surprise!

Holy Guaca-moly you've won!

Congratulations! Your photo entry has made you a lucky third prize winner
in the HP/ Shrek the Third Capture Your Ever After photo contest. Your
prize includes an HP Photosmart A616 compact printer, carrying case, and
an HP Custom 110 Series photo value pack.


  1. Congratulations! Where did all this photo-taking talent come from? Um, what kind of camera do you have? :)

  2. That's a good question Yvette! I don't think I've ever blogged about that before. Both my parents were big into photography. My dad did some professional work as a wedding photographer. (so did my mom's brother) I've done a couple weddings, but certainly wouldn't consider myself a professional. I started taking pictures when I was ten years old - gosh has it really been 20 years already? Wow! I guess I do have boxes and boxes of pictures to attest to that fact. I entered photographs in the county fairs for 10 years using a SLR camera that I still own, but haven't touched since I got my digital. I opted for the convenience of a point-and-shoot. It's a Nikon Coolpix 5600. (5.1 Megapixels)
    I'm dreaming of the day I can upgrade to something like Jennifer's digital SLR.
