Hello, all! For those of you who might have popped over here to visit in the last week, perhaps having been promised compelling posts and crafty ideas from yours truly, I am sorry.
Our family, driven by our big hearted/one legged leader, has been on vacation this last week. I mention the fact that my hubby is in a one legged state purely to lead up to this point… There are very few times in life that having one leg is a benefit. In fact, only two that I can think of off the top of my head…
Number one: Awesome Halloween costume opportunities.
Number two: bypassing lines at theme parks.
Both of these benefits were enjoyed on this vacation.
This was our fifth attempt at getting the perfect cliche family photo in front of the castle at Disney World. The first attempt was in the morning sun and featured our family complete with crumpled grimacing blinded faces. The second featured all our smiling faces, minus our youngest, who was just a mickey hat. The third, taken by a kind stranger, showed only us and no castle. Really, sir? What’s the point? The fourth featured all of us including a very unhappy arms-crossed-fed-up-with-photos 2 year old who was undoubtedly sick of his mother’s perfectionism. So this is the fifth “attempt” if you can call it that. It’s technically a combination of photo attempts three and four, with strategically placed text to cover my less-than-photo-worthy legs. Enjoy! We think it’s a good idea to label your children and put them in bright colors when attending highly populated areas. At one point we temporarily “misplaced” our youngest. I just cried out, “Anyone seen Thing 1??!!” And half a dozen people called out, “He’s right here!” Handy.
So there you go. My photographic evidence to excuse why I’ve been absent from the blogging world.
And now, I’m back! Let the blogging resume! Oh, and the dishes and the laundry and the cooking… (sigh) :)
