Weekly Winners: April 18-24

My photographic world was all over the place this week. From nature to nurture and from the lovely to the grosstastic. But I am going to spare you the nasty photos of the Roo-girl's post-surgical foot (plantar warts are disgusting) and focus instead on the lovelies of nature and my nurturous children.

First, the beauty of the world around me ...

The camouflage tree:

The return to my fascination with fountains:

Next, we turn our view inward -- to the number of remotes it takes to watch a movie on TV in our house:

No, I'm not kidding. One for the TV, one for the Blu-Ray player,
one for the -- ahem -- sound system, and one for the booster.
I cannot for the life of me watch without assistance from some technoid in my house.

And then, we look at children in their natural habitat ... or at play.

Making french toast at the assemble-it-yourself meal place:

This is a mother-daughter treat of an outing. She loves doing it -- and so do I.

Would you like some grated cheese on your salad?

Why, yes, Drama King! Please serve me!

Who is that masked woman?

And lastly, my fave-rave group of kids:

And that, my friends, is everything for today. For more Weekly Winners, visit the WW mother ship, headed by Lotus.

Your pictures are wonderful as usual. The first two I would frame and put on my walls. I really enjoy all your water fountain and other water photographs.

So how ya been woman?

Miss Grace said...

One remote! But that's because I lost the one for the TV and we have to actually change the channel manually. said...

You have a beautiful family!

Lisa @ Boondock Ramblings said...

Love the photos! The remotes...yeah, my parents are like that. It's um...interesting. Love the tree shot and of course your kids!

I thew a hissy over having to have 7 remotes --and the husband did a bunch of magic and now I only need to use two. Lost some of the "magic" in the machines I guess... but at least saved my sanity.
