We have houseguests this week! One of my favorite people, Barkley, and her son Woods are visiting with us from Charleston.
Ali has been so excited about our houseguests that, while playing with them at lunch, she learned how to transform her two-eyed somewhat spastic wink…
Into a very suave, grown-up, one-eyed wink.Hopefully she won’t be using that to attract any MORE boyfriends. Yeesh.
At any rate, we’re so busy having fun that I don’t have too much to say, so I thought I’d beg your forgiveness and share our attempt at this year’s photo shoot.
The last time we got together almost exactly a year ago, we met halfway in Atlanta, where I attempted, quite optimistically, to get a “perfect photograph” of our kids.
The closest I got last year was this one:
However, since last year, we’ve all learned a few things about photography.
I’ve learned that bribery goes a long way in getting a kid to keep a permasmile – especially if it’s PEZ.
At least for a three year old. Notsomuch for a one and a half year old.
Ali learned how to fight off her aggressors with a smile (because of the PEZ, I’m sure):
If I ever become a Psychiatrist, that will most definitely be on my business card.
I might, for the first time in my blog’s history, have a re-run or two over the next couple of days if you would be so kind as to let me, so that I can fully enjoy our houseguests.
