Gimme A Hand May 18, 2012

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands.  Jazz hands.  Too much time on my hands.   Hand me downs.  Hand outs.  Hand ups.  Hand in hand. A handy handyman.  

Hands down . . .

All hands on deck . . .  

Lend a hand . . .

Hands help us express ourselves to the world through body language, art, music . . .

Or just give us something to hide behind when we’ve had enough . . .

Aah . . . that’s better!

Applause! Applause!

Woo Hoo! Give it up for HANDS! 😀

2. CMSmith - May 18, 2012

I’ve got to hand it to you, you sure figured out how to get hand into the picture.

nrhatch - May 18, 2012

This challenge was a fun excuse to flip through some handsome hand photos from our last family reunion. 😀

3. Zen and Genki - May 18, 2012

It’s wonderful when we all get together for hands on fun. 😀

What about…Hands off????
And winning hands down??
Lovely pics..

nrhatch - May 18, 2012

Good ones, granny. I’ve got to hand it to you and Christine. I missed some obvious ones.

5. kateshrewsday - May 18, 2012

A lovely exuberant one today, Nancy 🙂 What beautiful pictures. And a lot of broad grins too. Aaaah…..that’s better!

nrhatch - May 18, 2012

My nieces and nephews are quite handy. 😀

6. magsx2 - May 18, 2012

Hi,
Great photos, and it looks like everyone had a lot of fun while you were taking them as well. 🙂

nrhatch - May 18, 2012

We all had a great time that week . . . hands down the best family reunion we’ve enjoyed.

7. barb19 - May 18, 2012

I put my hands together for your great pics!

nrhatch - May 18, 2012

Thanks, Barb. I wish I’d caught a couple of cartwheels and handstands. 😀

8. The Retiring Sort - May 18, 2012

fun post!

nrhatch - May 18, 2012

Some handsome hands, eh? 😀

9. Jas - May 18, 2012

Clapping my hands.. 😀

nrhatch - May 18, 2012

Thanks for the hand, Jas. So much better than a hand out . . . or even a hand up

10. Perfecting Motherhood - May 19, 2012

Very cool, it was a fun theme, huh?

nrhatch - May 19, 2012

Yes. Very interesting to focus on what the hands were doing in each photos. I’ll probably be obsessed with watching hands for days. 😀

11. nancycurteman - May 19, 2012

These photos of kids are adorable. I wonder if they might be your grandkids? Very “hand”some family.

nrhatch - May 19, 2012

Nieces and nephews. Some handsome hands . . . on both sides of the family. 😉

12. jannatwrites - May 19, 2012

Looks like you all had lots of fun! You’ve got a good mixture of “posers” and “hiders” 🙂

nrhatch - May 19, 2012

It was lots of fun looking through all the photos from that week. “S” (bottom photo) hid her face EVERY time. All part of the game. 😀

13. Three Well Beings - May 19, 2012

I love the photos! My heart always melts at the sight of happy children! I understood the joy in the hands, but my attention went right to the big smiles! 🙂 Debra

nrhatch - May 19, 2012

Shiny Happy People Smiling are the best . . . life is better with giggles a plenty. 😆

14. Myra GB - May 19, 2012

These are such beautiful photos. You have lovely models!

nrhatch - May 19, 2012

Now I understand why certain companies look for just the right hands to handle their products. 😀

15. William D'Andrea - May 19, 2012

How about “Keep your hands to yourself!”

nrhatch - May 19, 2012

Good one, William!

16. sweetdaysundertheoaks - May 19, 2012

Great photos and HANDS for the challenge! And I agree, some very sweet smiles… 🙂

nrhatch - May 19, 2012

Thanks, Pix. Hands are handy tools as we move through life. If we didn’t have them, we’d have to type and text with our noses. 😉

17. adeeyoyo - May 19, 2012

Just clap your hands and stamp your feet… I am always amazed at the foot and mouth painters, Nancy!

nrhatch - May 19, 2012

Same here. They paint better with their teeth and toes than I do with my fingers.

18. Pocket Perspectives - May 19, 2012

looks like the quality of “exuberance” got “handed” down to the nieces and nephews….runs in the family I guess….??? : )

nrhatch - May 19, 2012

Most kids have that quality of youthful exuberance . . . as we age, life takes its “toll” and we stop seeing the joy in every moment.

19. eof737 - May 19, 2012

Sweet! I love the energy of all that family fun! 🙂

nrhatch - May 20, 2012

Yes. Enjoy it while it lasts . . . they grow up all too fast. 🙂

20. bluebee - May 20, 2012

Cute pics 😀

nrhatch - May 20, 2012

Thanks, BB! It was FUN sorting through the family reuinion shots for HANDS.

21. Karen J - May 20, 2012

Hand-in-Hand, we can make life more fun for everybody.

Happy Sunday, y’all!

nrhatch - May 20, 2012

Thanks, Karen. Have a great day!

22. island traveler - May 20, 2012

Hands that create, build and inspire. Beautiful images with generous smiles like the radiant sunshine. thanks…

nrhatch - May 20, 2012

Thanks! Smiles are like sunshine, aren’t they? 😀

23. spilledinkguy - May 22, 2012

Thumbs up on these hands, Nancy!
🙂

nrhatch - May 22, 2012

Thanks, Bob! If it weren’t for hands . . . we wouldn’t have thumbs. 😉

24. Tokeloshe - May 23, 2012

Well done!

nrhatch - May 23, 2012

Thanks, Tok. I had FUN selecting hands to share.

25. Team Oyeniyi - May 24, 2012

Clapping!

nrhatch - May 24, 2012

26. 2e0mca - May 26, 2012

That’s a mean looking Pirate with the water cannons 😉 Nice set of shots Nancy

nrhatch - May 26, 2012

Thanks, Martin! That’s me pirate, K . . . quite the swashbuckler. 😀

2e0mca - May 26, 2012

I do get a bit worried talking to all these very young ladies on the internet… People might get the wrong idea!

nrhatch - May 26, 2012

Aye, matey! Ye’ll walk the plank for shore. 😀
