Top 20 Photos of 2013: 10-12

Well, I got behind again. 

Not really a surprise though.  I had a good streak though. 

But I'm back with another catch-up post though. This will finish up my once-a-month theme I've got going. Starting tomorrow I'll have to go back through all of the pictures again for the final 8. There are some I have in mind already though and I know I have plenty to choose from. But you'll just have to wait. So, on with the catching up.  Oh and sorry for any crazy formatting, I'm blogging via my iPad since I am out of town for a conference.

#10: October

I don't always take pictures of the kids, myself, or food. Sometimes I take pictures of object and scenery. October's photo is just that. I took this picture of mini pumpkins when we took the kids to the. Zoo for Zoo Boo. I love pumpkins and so I had to of course capture them. They totally sum up fall for me and I love having them around the house. 

#11: November

Then again, I take pictures of my kids.  So sue me. This is one of my all-time favorite pictures of them. They were all piled up in our bed, of course, and it was a wonder that I was able to quickly get them all to be still and smile long enough for a picture. Just a wonderful snapshot in time. 

#12: December

So I didn't actually take this picture myself. Amy took it. She got a great shot of the kids and myself bringing the Christmas tree into the house. It was such a fun day and evening so the picture also brings back the memories of hone holiday season for me. Plus, who can resist 3 little kids "hauling" a Christmas tree around?

We'll, there you have it. The first 12 from 2013. 8 more left. The best of the best. No pressure. Just hundreds of pictures to sort through!

All is well, picture perfect, in Drosche Land. 


  1. What great children you've got! I love all those pumpkins. We rarely eat pumpkin in England or Malaysia

    1. Thanks so much! Pumpkins are among my favorites to look at and eat!

  2. It is so wonderful to read your posts for so much love they contain.
    Today it is not so common as happy families.
    I think it is most divorces.
    I myself have a sweetheart who I have been together 52 years.
    We have been married for 44 this April, and we have four wonderful kids.
    Yes they're adults and have families of their own.
    We will soon have our seven grandchildren.
    Have a really good wherever you are and there is nothing wrong with the text.
    Beautiful pictures of your happy child living in such a loving family

    1. Thank you so much! Things aren't always perfect and we have our difficult times, but overall we are very blessed and have a lot to be thankful and happy for!

  3. Great picks, Dusty. The pumpkin shot could be in a calendar, it's that good. I miss pumpkins :( And the one of your three kids in bed is excellent--their faces say it all. I understand why it's your favorite :) Glad you caught up!

    1. Thanks so much! It is one of my all-time favorite. I'm thinking I should have saved it for later but oh well!
