Take a closer look

I've always thought that I was pretty good at being observant. I was reminded just this week, to stop and take a closer look at life. Tristen spotted something that I must have walked past a hundred times and missed it. So just for fun I thought I would post some pictures to see how observant you are. I have always loved those puzzles in kids magazines that challenged you to spot the differences. So DON'T scroll down to see the second set of pictures. No cheating here.

Here is an odd assortment of our life in pictures this past week.
Like I said...an ODD assortment of pictures. So here are the ones that I want to point something out in. Take a closer look.

Tally got new glasses. Her prescription almost doubled in the last year. Can we say "growth spurt".
This is what I have been walking past. Tissy spotted a tortoise living in our garden bed. And I noticed his little toad friend. They use their camouflage really well. You wouldn't normally spot them.


Last but not least...I am lementing the loss of a stone tray. It cracked yesterday. If you are a pampered chef fan, you will understand. I was just enjoying the seasoned look of my tray and thinking it was just getting to the point where I like it. And...I spotted the crack. Let me take a moment for greiving the loss of the stone. OK, that is all for my odd little post here. Just a hodge podge of pictures. Some of them do require a closer look.

And totally off the subject...Chuck and I saw Fireproof yesterday (thanks to Debi for watching the girls). It was really quite good. I am offering anyone to watch there kids so any local friends want to go as a couple. Thanks again Debi, let me return the favor. =)

Glad you liked the movie, I really want to go with Tim on a date. So sorry to hear about your stone...bummer. Kind of spendy to replace it?? Tell Tally I like her glasses, very cute and stylish. Rah Rah Chuck is home and IN the pictures!! I'll show the boys the turle and frog...they's like that.

Hey T & T - love the pictures of the T & T! Good for you, Tissy - finding them! Tally, the glasses are cool! You look like mommie and daddy! Sorry about the stone. I have one in storage that I can share with you! So glad you were able to see the movie. Blessings on you all

Love Tally's glasses! And love to see chuck in the pictures instead of just reading about him!

Marilyn said...

Agreed, good to see Chuck in the pics. Wish he could get an extension and stay longer. Tal, you look great in those glasses.
Good eye, Tis, on finding the frog and turtle. Movie made us both cry! Probably we will teach a follow up class on it in church.
They have materials available.
Buying for my December advent surprise days, girls. Started today.

I wish I could give you my Pampered Chef stone that I tossed. My husband said it grossed him out that it was SO "seasoned". Well, it was very, very dark.

I know how sad it is to lose a stone! Aren't they warranted for a certain period of time? I had to replace my bar pan last year.

I have a collection of broken pp stones. I haven't been able to part with them.

It's really cool when those of us who have handicaps(ei in this case, poor vision) can see better than those who don't need correction. Photography class helped me see better (color intensity, shades of light...).

Okay, I didn't see the turtle, although I could tell there was something in the bushes. Tally's glasses look great, even though the frames look somewhat similar to me. Bet you had a great week with Chuck home, we continue to pray for you guys each night!
