Club Chaos Eye Candy Contest-

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Solutions- OZARK MISSOURI

 This years theme for the CLUB CHAOS EYE CANDY CONTEST is Winter!  No problem, I have plenty of time to get some great shots to share with my readers and show off my lovely part of our great state of Missouri. 

Biggest problem I ran into is I am a procrastinator when it comes to taking time to have a bit of creative fun.  I also am finding out that I tend to like to tweak the rules a bit.  When Carolyn sent me a notice that today was the last day to submit to the contest I knew I had to stop what I was working on and get my winter pictures posted!   short version of the RULES are 5 photos and 100 words.

ben  Ben-----Andrew------hurrry with the dishes so you can vacuum, clean your playroom, rotate the laundry, start lunch and..... then get dressed and run out and do something cute so I can take a picture!

Yeah right Grandma- you want us to drop our favorite chores and play outside- don't think so!!

 

Doesn't look like the boys are going to help me find any great winter shots to show off especially b/c today is trying to decide if it wants to be rainy. 

 NUTSEY... Have you got a minute to help me shoot some eye candy in MO?

trees  Sorry...CW you're on your own- it is not near cold enough in your part of the state for me drop what I am doing (translated from squirrel for the convenience of the readers)

Favorite Oldest son- can you give me a hand for a minute-  I need a couple of 'winter pictures"

*MOM -  I love you so much and I hate to ever let you down ....have  you have been outside?  This is not what most people would consider wintry)... Ask Karlee.  *(edited for literary license---I made that up)

 Most wonderful grand-daughter- please help your granny find a winter-photo to share with my readers so I can enter a contest.

Grandma- you can take a picture of my quilt!

Somehow I don't think the family is taking me serious about this.  Where am I going to find a place to take traditional winter pictures when our temperatures are barely even considered fall.  I only have a short amount of time to get this entry together if I hope to participate in the contest.  PLEASE..... I need snow!!!

 

Finally...... here is the best WINTER PHOTO I can produce.... it has it all....even a snowman......and the best daughter-in-law ever for taking time to pose with our son.

See the short sleeves--- Maybe for the spring contest I can have the weather man schedule a nice late snow.  Missouri really does have four seasons.  We just don't get much advanced notice as to when they are going to show up.  Sometime we get several on the same day.  Stay tuned.....

Rebecca, thanks for the good wishes.  I bet you have a tad bit more 'winter' in WVA than we have.   BTW- I attended elem. school in Princeton WV back in the mid 70's.  Don't get to add that to conversations very often.  be good  cw

Cheryl, forget about 'traditional' winter photos when you live in FL! LOL You have a lovely family. We just had a grandbaby born this week, so we're on cloud 9!

Sharon, congrats on the new rug-rat.  This contest reminded me of a 'what I did on vacation' type of assignment.  IT will mean different things to each participant.  For me--just another example of procrastination and throw it together.  I hate to let Carolyn down by not entering.  cw

Well, she got quite a few photo entries but video was slim! I want to do videos this year but we're not where I would enter anything...

Sharon, I bet the next couple of rolls of video will have babies in them.  I think these contests are designed to be shoot/film what you love, we will all get better the more we participate.  I am not a photo-person per say but do enjoy a good story with a few grand-kids thrown in for fun.  I like to let my grands promote me as much as possible. (they are all younger and better looking!)  I will look for your video premiere!  be good  cw

Hi guys. The whole purpose of eye candy is to show off what you think is beautiful. Do it any way you want. Why do you think we started Minion TV? We had over the cameras to the wee ones, give them something huge to aim at so they "can't miss" then get out of the way and start laughing. Next contest is landmarks. Maybe you can include the little people visiting them (LOL). ;-0
