This event at our church was also put on by my daughter’s AWANA Truth and Training club. I have looked forward to it each year. While some families include all the girls in the family, I take pleasure in sending all the rest home and spending some time with my oldest girl!
Here are a couple attempts at self portraits. I have to saymy ability is much improved from my initial ones several years ago.
This one may be too close since we came out pretty washed out.
Some one walked by and took this one for us.
Each year they have had a professional photographer taking our pictures though we haven’t received ours yet. I really look forward to those photos because I always look much better than I do in real life. Ha! Ha! Maybe I should invest in PhotoShop?
I asked my daughter what her favorite part of the tea was. I expected her to say the food or the dessert which are both fabulous every year. Her answer? “Just spending time with you Mom.” Aw! I pressed her to give me an answer that was specific to the event. She said her favorite thing was the missionary speaker.
I don’t think we realise until the kids grow up how much it means …
You don’t need photoshop but if you really want to edit your pics you should try Picmonkey. It’s really easy and produces some surprising results.
Thanks Robin I’ll look into it!
I love the pictures of both my girls!

Ditto what Robin said…just stumbled across Picmonkey recently and really like it. We have Photoshop here at home, but I’ve been going to Picmonkey more often than not lately!
