Uhh... yeah. DO NOT tell my Southern Lady mom that I showed her STUFFING HER FACE on a photography forum! LOL!

I stood on my chair with my hands and camera stretched out over the table and above my head so long... I guess her hunger overcame her. LOL!

My family is the best ever.

They eat with a Stalker clicking over their heads even on a holiday ... with no thought to it all.

I truly am thankful for that.

Am I little guilty that I've trained them to be real while I click?


Yeah...
No... *sigh*

Okay... Yeah.

I am.

Okay. That was a lie.

Awwww.... how appropriate that you would win a blue ribbon in a photo depicting your wonderful family life. Congratulations, Lydia! This is the best!

Congratulations Lydia! What a great pov! I love your notes. I agree your family is wonderful to be so tolerant of your antics, and I love your conflicted dithering about whether or not you feel guilty. Seems you may be guilty about not feeling guilty, but does that mean you really do feel guilty???

Great POV on a wonderful day, did not vote or even look at this challenge all the way through, so well done.

I love this on so many levels!
Just lost my mom, so I immediately focused in on the spare/ vacant chair. Was this dad's chair?
This is wonderful!

Looks like you got your revenge for that ridiculously stupid DQ in the original "Feast" challenge. I hope council is STILL hanging their head in shame over that one.
