Ethan, Daddy & The Apple

i have never seen this child gobble up an apple{s} as fast as he did this day! see he has his very own unique way of eating apples...
bite slice, chew on it a bit {like a camel does a piece of cud} & promptly spit out leftover remains {which is usually a big slobbery
sticky mess of mashed up skin & pulp, yuck!} oh, but i am hoping those days are over... maybe it was just the excitement of eating
fresh picked apples in the field or the nostalgia of where they came from for him, because since this day he has been grabbing
apples from the basket & {for the most part} gobbling 'em up still! it makes me quite happy to see... apple mommie! and note
 how that daddy is getting in on the apple eating action there in the end :)

this week's theme for Shutter Love Tuesday
at Trendy Treehouse is {collage}!


i am also submitting this for the Happiness Project, cause well everything about this collage just makes me happy... smiles on their faces & love in their hearts, from a daddy spending time with his boy to the wee bean gobblin' up the apples, oh the apples... apples make me quite happy { apple pie, apple crisp, applesauce & apple slices} they are just downright del{ish} :)

and i am so honored & proud to have found out that i placed first in last week's photo challenge at Trendy Treehouse {a story in pictures}!!!
i want to send out a big thank you thank you thank you to Jamie & Tara for choosing my story of imagery as their number one pick
of the week, so honored ladies!!! and thank you all for the supportive commenting on my images {i love reading each & every sweet,
kind, thoughtful word} it gives me an amazing boost of confidence/creativity
& so truly appreciated!


happy tuesday! xoxo

I saw your lovely photo story over at Trendy Treehouse and smiled. That's so awesome :) That's so funny about how he eats apples; my toddler will grab one and start chowing down; then like an hour later I will find bits of apple rind still in his mouth. He somehow saves it!
