Photo Booth

I have a bunch of photos I've taken for blogging purposes but I'm not sure they all deserve their own post. So I'm just going to jam them all together...

The Grass Is Always Greener (click this one to enlarge)



This is what happens when you leave your 3 year old alone with your laptop for 5 minutes to play online games....
(No, that is not a game. That is my new wallpaper image! How she did that, I have no idea.)

My Little Rockstar
Someday when he is a famous guitarist in a rock band, this picture will be worth a fortune. Don't you love how he's holding it just right and looking down at the strings like he's rocking out? No one even showed him how to do that!


BEFOREI colored my hair. I was sick of it being dark. So I got some highlights put in. It's pretty close to my natural color now. I'm so glad to not be a brunette anymore. No offense.
AFTER



This spells joy to me. No, not watching my kids torture the neighborhood stray. But the fact that my kids are playing OUTSIDE. That day, they played happily outside for an hour and a half!!! Oh man, I forgot how wonderful good weather is. I got so much done while they were outside dipping their mittens in puddles and launching rotten chestnuts down the slide. Oh, and getting their eyes scratched out by stray cats. It was awesome.


I feel like this picture requires some explanation. I'm not in the habit of dressing my son up in faggy sunglasses and filming him dance around naked. Honestly. But when Daphne dug up her sunglasses and brought them in to Beck, who then decided to parade around his manhood, er, boyhood in pink sunglasses with his binky in his mouth, I just couldn't resist a shot. It'll be used as blackmail later in his life, of course.


And finally, nothing makes a mother's heart glow like watching her husband make valentines with is little girl. He's in charge of the cards, she's in charge of sticker placement. As you can see, a few of the stickers missed their mark. By a few feet. That's OK. Daddy needs to get in touch with his pink, sparkly, girly side. He has one, I know it.

I like you much better as a blonde. Brown hair is my department!

We all know Beck wears those faggy sunglasses every day.

Melissa said...

Okay, twin seperated at birth, or shall I just call you TSAB? You have a cat?? WTF? That was a deal breaker until I saw you use the word faggy. Then I fell back into MAD LOVE with you!
Annnnnnd, the lighter hair is HOT!!!

i love the new hair color!

i think you're wrong about what picture will be worth more $$$ when your son becomes a rock star.

Kristine said...

Cute pictures :D Beck does look like a rock star sporting the guitar! And I love the black mail shot! Playing outside has been my favorite thing to do the past week and a half! I love spring weather! Great hair! I love highlights, they just liven up a head of hair!

Christie said...

Yes, very cute pics. ANd I love the new hair too! I've been considering going darker too, but yours looks better light, and I think mine probably would too.

Sara said...

I liked all the random shots------the one of your little boy with his --ah--private blacked out. Super funny. don't let that ruin his future in politics.

I love all the random shots in one post. The new hair looks great and I love the ones of the kids dancing in their ummm shades.
