My funny Valentine
Even though I'm exhausted and can barely find the time to take care of normal every day tasks, I had every intention of sending out Valentines this year with a picture of my 3 adorable little ones as the focal point. How cute would that be, right? I looked online early and knew where I would have them printed and approximately how many I would need. I felt organized...in my head - not something that happens often these days!
Unfortunately, it didn't quite pan out. For one thing, unless I made a rush order, at this point it would be too late to get the printing done with the company I had planned to go with AND have them sent out to everyone in time for Valentine's Day. For another, that's a moot point, because it was impossible to take a good picture of all 3 kids with my point-and-shoot camera in poor lighting and obviously a lack of imagination for setting/props (props, of which there are none, unless you count the twins being 'propped' up by Andrew's arms!!)
Here is what I ended up with when I uploaded the pictures. I had to just laugh. And decide on no Valentine's this year, with the hope that next year it will work out the way I saw it in my head...
First we have Andrew fake-smiling (which let's face it, is as good as it gets, because he fake smiles for almost every picture I take of him...if he's not making a weird face, that is...And no, his fake smile face is not weird compared to the plethora of bizarre looks he likes to give for the camera. For lack of a better term given our vegetarianism, he's a regular ham!) Oh yeah, and not only is Andrew fake-smiling, but his eyes are closed, Emily's staring off with a look of total boredom, and Margaret is either working on a baby rendition of Stayin' Alive, or...I don't even know what - but she doesn't look comfortable!
