Not every week is free to spend a few hours with photoshoots and editing. But, as my photographer brother reminds me, the important thing is to simply use the camera. So, here are some shots that I took between January 15-20 just around the house. The Lord has allowed our family to begin building a house and it has fallen into my hands to document the journey. As I'm just taking "snapshots" of our days working, why not have a little fun? Here's a little tip for those of you whose photography interests lie only in family fun: try to zone in on individuals so that when you see the picture, you are not distracted with everything else going on.

Without more jabbering, here are the pictures.

Sawdust flying - oh yeah!

Sunbeams really have me captivated right now - probably because I just figured out how to capture them on camera

Sunbeams. What can I say?

For those of you who are making snowmen right now, enjoy our Southern rendition :)

I'm supposed to be capturing the buliding process not the sunset? Oh. Whoops!

The clouds were just amazing. And the walls? Super exciting!

Thanks, Salinn! :)

Yes, I thought the "Sandmen" were very creative and cute! Naomi is great at coming up with things like that. :)

How exciting it must be to see your house being built like that, and what a family project! My family and I did a lot of little projects together, including paving a driveway. I love the sunbeam/sunset picture with the walls.

Indeed, very exciting!! :) I've been having a blast!
