Favorite Photo of 2007

I'm not calling it the "best" photo, just my favorite.

Why? Well, because they're so adorable, of course! These sheep live at Gretchen and Randy's place, just a mile or so down the road from me. We went to visit them one muddy spring day, just after the lambs were born -- the little human kids and the little sheep babies frolicked together. I originally called this photo "The girls...or can't we all just get along?" The girls seem to go everywhere together, in a little pack, just like all girls everywhere! And they are so beautifully multicultural, aren't they?

And of course it's Theme Day around the world: I will update this list in the morning as I'm sure others will join in at the last minute (as I did), but for now, this is the list of who is sharing their best, or favorite, photos of the year. I'm posting early (and keeping it up late) so that European and Asian tourists can see my picture at their leisure, but remember that depending on time zones (and on people's relative states of grogginess on New Year's Day) photos will go up at various times throughout a 24+ hour period.

I love this one too. I like how you got all the colors covered.

I couldn't decide and am leaving it up to the votes. I narrowed my down to seven. Yikes! Hate to say I just couldn't pick one. Come take a look and put your vote in.

Fantastic shot. It's like they were really posing for you.

I look forward to visiting your blog more often this 2008. And you're welcome to mine, too! For some reason, my link was not included in the participating blogs for the 1st of January 2008 theme day. Sorry I wasn't able to visit your blog sooner. I was in transit the whole of yesterday. I am now back in Norwich after the most fantabulous time at home in Manila.

Happy New Year to you and everyone you hold dear!
