embrace the camera: april 21st



it's hard to believe that this saturday will mark 1 month home with elsa.
all that waiting...and now time is flying by.

so, these are older pics...
mr. anderson with elsa, on the long plane ride home from ethiopia:

and then at the airport...with my 2 little ladies:
i get such emotion when i look at the airport pics--that was such a precious moment.

so, are you ready to embrace the camera?
here's the nitty gritty:
1.  take a picture with you and your kids/spouse/family member/friend/whatever.
2.  blog about that picture and include a link to our blog, or grab our button.
3.  link your blog post up on mr. linky below.
4.  visit the other embracers...give each other lots of compliments about how good we look with our greasy hair and sweatpants velour jogging suits on.  cause yah, we need a little boost when it's been days since our last shower.
5.  have fun!

don't forget to link your embrace the camera post, not just your blog.

  4. Thanks for hosting ETC week after week. I'm so glad it's here. I agree that getting ourselves in our photos is so important for many reasons and you are truly helping me make it happen. These link-ups are really a catalyst for me. I've flaked for a few weeks, but I'm back on track.
    And your new little girls is adorable. What a beautiful family you have AND blessed. Margie (http://xnomads.typepad.com/blog)
