A Picture Tag

I was tagged by Mrs P at The Patterson 5 for a Picture Tag. The instructions say to go to your picture files, pick the fourth folder and the fourth picture in that folder and explain it!
Sounds simple enough. Ahem.... This turned out to be a bit more of a challenge for me than I had anticipated. I started out doing exactly what the instructions said (cause I'm a rule follower like that). Here's what I got.

Well that certainly is boring. (See Sue J, I told you!) This is during a time when I was searching for animal graphics that I might be able to use for projects in the Kindergarten Sunday School class I taught.
You see, I have lots of pictures in lots of folders in still more folders and organized quite specifically. So I think this should be a Do Over.

Since I just uploaded some pictures to my computer yesterday I actually have two folders that have pictures that have not been properly filed yet. So let's try this again with the pictures all filed as they should be.

Well that's not much better! For a while I was learning to paint and I thought this would be fun to paint. I was also beginning to work with graphics and it looked like it would be fun to try a graphic drawing of. I never did do it but it does still look like fun.

Ok I get another DO OVER because I'm sure these pictures are all wrong for this game. There's nothing personal about them. So I'm going straight into my "Friends and Family" folder and drawing from there instead of from my pictures folder. I just know that Chatty Kelly and adhd-jo are gonna do waaayyy better than this.

Well I do love this photo. It's a picture of Olivia when she was 2 years old and we were playing in the snow.

This still doesn't really count because it was not the 4th picture in the 4th folder, it was the ONLY picture in the 4th folder. In addition I posted this picture in a post recently (another tag), which is why it is the only picture in this folder, so it doesn't count. I want another DO OVER.

Just so you know I'm not making this up you can see for yourself. Who would have thought this would be so hard???

Since that last one was the only one in that folder and since that folder was only recently added to my files, I'm just gonna pick from the next folder in line. Since that is the year 2004 it should be ok.

Ugh! A really bad picture of me in 2004. I don't remember anything about this picture. I don't know who took it or why or what we were doing. Yes I know my hair look orange. I got a little wild with the hair color that year and red fades fast. It was actually kinda pretty right after I dyed it and I got a lot of compliments on it, but it was still a bit eye-opening even then.

I just can't win at this game. I'm taking one more Do Over.

Here's one that I like! :D It was in the 2004 folder so it counts. This is a picture of Olivia still in her jammies, watching tv one morning. You can tell from the expression on her face that she's enjoying the show too. I actually took 3 pictures in a row and I don't think she ever even noticed me. LOL!
Now wasn't that fun!??? :o
Now I have to tag four of you.... hmmmm....

Barbara "B" at B His Girl
Ok, I'm breaking the rules here but I just have to include one more very dear bloggy friend.
You are tagged girl!

Have fun everyone! :D

Hi Edie! It's always a pleasure to hear from you!! Thank you so much for your kind words at my Thankful Thursday's post! ~~ To God be all the Glory~~

In Him, Deanna
PS- I love your photos!

I'm in awe of that ballerina dress! And I can see why you would like to capture that artistically. One of my first attempts using color in an art class was a ballerina (this after I misunderstood the instructions from the art professor and did the original work in charcoal! I redid for the final portfolio showing--probably saved my grade!!)

Anyhow, LOL, we can always just play the game again, you silly! We'd have you unveiling all your photos and it's only game #1!!

I did enjoy the trip, though....

michele said...

The photos and the stories behind them was fun!! Have a great weekend!

sara said...

I got tagged for one of these too..my 4th folder only had 3 pictures in it....I decided not to play!

Love the last picture...so sweet!

Shabby Olde Potting Shed said...

Hey Edie,
OhboyOhboY.... I loved your pics you shared! You know I love the one of Olivia playing in the snow wearing your coat. Still reminds me of the Christmas in Sarejevo video! It was the first thing I thought when I saw it!
The picture of your "other" hair color is smashing darrrling.* I LIKE IT!! Can we call you "Red" now? I've always been a dark brunette but once it turned BLACK. It was half way down my back and jet black.! lol I had it highlited to boot and looked like Morticia Adams. I think my sister was embarrassed to be seen with me.
So your final picture is Olivia giggling at ... cartoons? Please say it wasn't Pepe?!
So tagged to show a PHOTO hmmm....- I got a bad feelin I'm gonna have trouble too.
Okay, I'm off to view my fourth 4th.
Later gater

Oh I loved this fun trip through your pictures! I did the red thing once too with hair dye only mine did not look good at all! Thanks for playing!

Chel's Leaving a Legacy said...

lol! You totally crack me up! I could almost hear your (imagination-engineered) voice saying every BIT of this in my head! DO OVER! ha ha

Very cute pictures...especially that last one!

Yolanda said...

Fun looking at everyone's pictures, that are saved because they have meaning to our hearts.


My Photo Meme is on my 2nd blog

Chatty Kelly said...

You cracked me up! I'm posting my picture this morning. Loved all yours, and yes, your hair was really red. ;-) But you still are fabulous!

Sharon said...

All of your pictures and do overs were fun Edie :)

Thank you for your prayers this week, I am truly blessed to have friends like you.

Mary Moss said...

Oh, Edie! I'm so pleased to know that I am not the only one with files in such disarray! I loved your pictures:-)

Talkin' Texan said...

This post is just too funny. If only you could see the mess all my pictures are in. I wish a photo fairy would come along and get them all organized for me.
This post also made me think about how glad I am that God sometimes lets me have do overs. We couldn't get through life without them.

From the Heart said...

The pictures are great. Sounds like doing a blog make over and getting the fonts the size of the screen. I still can't believe I did that.
You are truly a blessing,

Tammy said...

I love that costume you did,it's beautiful. When I had a dance school I prayed for ladies like you. You are so gifted!


Susan said...

This is exactly why I can't play this sort of meme! I would need several "do-overs". I love the one of the dress, though. It's so neat.



a corgi said...

cute entry!! I've seen this going around on blogs; I haven't gotten tagged yet(and hope I don't); I have no idea what the picture would be but it would probably be something of Koda since that's who I take the most pictures of these days and since I'm not posting pictures of myself or family members in my journal, I'd have to bend the rules a bit (do overs, LOL) to get one that wasn't a person if that happened to be a person in that file

I liked how you wrote this :)


Greg C said...

I posted mine, come check it out.

Marla said...

Those pictures were alot of fun. I don't have many photos in my computer yet. I am trying to figure out how to get them off of my camera. I just have a hard time with that stuff. I am working on getting an email off to you soon. I am sorry I am so slow at responding back to you!

Lisa said...

Ha, ha. That's about as organied as my folders are, too. I've been tagged for this too. Now I'm scared to see what I find in that fourth folder! :)
