Links and snapping…


Last night, we got our Mother’s Day packages ready to send.  The little bags seemed a little plain so I grabbed my instant camera and headed to the kitchen where Botch was making dinner.  This is how the conversation went….  "What are you doing?"  "I’m taking pictures for our Moms."  "Oh, cool."  Snap, shake shake shake.  "My head looks to big!" Snap, shake shake shake.  "Now my head looks big!" Snap, shake shake.  "Ok, this is getting crazy." Last Snap, shake.  "For real, this was supposed to be easy!  Crikey!"  All the while giggling and a gasp or two at how tired we look.  But then again, it was 9 o’clock at night. We also now have a nice picture of our bare wall because I mistakenly hit the shutter button instead of the power.  There’s one for the fridge.  Are your Mother’s Day gifts ready?
