Photos and Fire

Since the holidays, I've been going through pictures.

Which means I've been trying to process and print out a decade's worth of pictures.

It's not easy being me.

So by the time I process all the pictures,

I have no patience left to blog
or time....

But nevertheless, interesting things have been happening in our house
on a regular basis...

a fact which, I am reminded of as I go through all these photos.
I've learned a lot of things.

I really need a second pair of cotton yoga pants because I wear
the one pair I have in every picture.

And, iphoto's retouch tool works incredibly on blemishes
and crows feet
 and even under eye shadows....

But if you try to erase the "turkey" lines on  your neck,
you wind up looking like a bobble head.

You've been warned.

And I take a hugely disproportionate number of pictures of my fifth child Lily 
compared to ...anybody who's ever had their picture taken on the face of the planet.

I am hoping that this will offset the fact that I have had her picture taken 
in a studio...
Once when she was 18 months and then when she was six.

It's just the HEADACHE of it all...getting the outfit ready, getting the child
CLEAN, fixing the squirrelly hair, getting the appointment...
I could go on.

Pretty much the only time I take pictures of the other kids is when they are doing silly things like 
climbing on branches that are much too small for them to be climbing on.

What you don't see here is that he is about to light that toilet paper on fire.
Cause somebody told him that was a good way
to get rid of the t.p. in the tree.

Important note...this works but is not recommended if you care about your trees...
and is not advisable under any circumstances for BIRCH trees.

So if you don't hear from me here for awhile, 
I've drowned in my pictures and need to be dragged out, or I've gone up in a wall of flames from kids trying to burn toilet paper out of my trees.

Either way...not good!
