Photo Challenge: Buddies.

: So, there will now be a guest judge each week to pick the winner! I’ll still be picking my fave’s of course, but the winner will be chosen by the guest. Along with the guest judges top 5 picks. AND, the linky will now be closing on Thursday’s. This will give me time to get my winner posts done on Friday so they can go up on Saturday. 🙂

This weeks Judge: Faith at Simplicity.

This weeks challenge: Buddies.

The challenge: Take or find a photo of your baby (or kid… or puppy… or kitty) with their best best buddy! Could be a stuffed animal, a pet, or even mom.

Here’s my example of Buddies:

 {Ruari at 6 months and her best bud: Mama}

Yeah, that’s right. We’re best bud’s!

Faith’s example of Buddies:

Every day
Every night
Big sister
Little brother
best friends
brushing theeth together
every night
Every day
sometimes the ordinary, everyday activities
are the things we end up treasuring the most
