Warm colors / Cool colors: Theme Thursday

So last week was Aliya’s birthday (and party) and in the craziness of it all I never got my Theme Thursday post together.  Many many apologies, friends.  Ruth Anne of Holloway Family North is my most frequent contributor and it turns out she had a baby last Sunday (congratulations Ruth Anne!), so, possibly between that and Daylight Savings hell Time I just snuck it under all your noses.  (???)

Anyhoo!  This week we will do a mash-up Theme Thursday and you will forgive me because you all are the nicest folks around and also you probably knew what you were getting into when you bought your tickets to this circus.

Cool colors

Um, this was really hard for me.  I thought I was doing such a great job taking this picture and that with my REAL camera and then, bam.  There’s that pesky green spring grass or that warm yellow spring sun. For this theme, I ended up going alllllll the way back to our December trip up to my parents house for Christmas and New Years.

I just love the frosty grass and the cousins chatting on the Opa-made teeter totter.

Warm Colors

So this one is pretty easy, for all the same reasons that made “cool colors” difficult. Green grass? Check.  Warm sunshine? Check.

You would have thought I sent them up that hill for a photo op, but nope.  Just hanging out chatting in their bonnets and skirts in one of their usual Friday park day haunts.
