I am so excited to share these pictures with you! This is the first photo challenge that I've participated in, and I loved it! I knew before I started that it would be hard work, but I'm so glad that I did it. I had so much fun brainstorming for each daily theme. Thank you to I Heart Faces for putting this together, I had sooooo much fun doing this! Thank you to everyone who followed my challenge on facebook! Lets look at what I've been doing for the past month, doesn't that sound exciting? haha :P
Here is a list of all of the challenges with the date they were supposed to be completed on. I Heart Faces did a great job. :)
Day 1: Me
I tried to capture me and everything I love in just one photo. Of course, I love tons of things so that was slightly impossible. But, I did my best and I'm pretty happy about the result. Lesson Learned: Self-portraits are extremely difficult! It took me over an hour and a half to get a decent one, between me jumping from my camera (which was set up on a tripod) to my bed and trying to pose, it was not a simple task. But anyways, here's me, lover of bright colors, doing what I love doing best!
Day 2: Elf
My little elf. This may or may not be a very loved bear and faithful friend of mine for the past 10 years. :P
Day 3: What You're Reading
This one was simple because I rarely read anything other than the bible! haha. Jesus is the reason for the season of Christmas. I pray that we NEVER forget that. ♥
Day 4: Shadow Play
Even though this wasn't the silhouette that I planned to have, I still really like it! :)
Day 5: Someone I Love
I can't possibly capture everyone that I love in just one photo, but Rebecca is very special to my heart. She brings me so much laughter and joy. :)

Becca Jill was so excited for Christmas morning, watching her open presents was definitely the highlight of my Christmas. Here is the process of her unwrapping her bible, which she was super excited about. ♥
Day 26: Toy
For some reason, this was probably the hardest one for me. I have no idea why, because we have a million toys. I literally took 200 pictures before I got one that I was happy with. Major perfectionist.... :/
Day 27: Favorite Thing
I have such an amazing dad, he gets us each a huge box of Cheez-its every single year! Definitely one of my favorite things about Christmas. :)
