Quote Of The Day

"You don't get money on Valentine's Day. You just get lots of love... and candy, definitely candy."

said by 6 year old son in response to his younger brother who asked if he was getting money.


I matted and framed this photo for Rob.

Seven Heads

Just slightly better than the dark glasses and mustache.

Yes, I gave Rob the version with the words all over it to being to his office. I had to make sure none of his co workers would try to take the photo and do something with it. Can't be too safe these days you know. The world is full of crazy people. CRAZY! And I am sure when they see the photo I'll seem very sane.

The children got Valentine beanie babies, mugs filled with assorted treats, including a package of hot chocolate, the good kind with mini marshmallows. Yeah, they are worth it. At least that is what I tell them.

Anticipating

The hyperactive sugar frenzy is beginning already. I really should stop eating the candy.

Great picture!
I've got to get down stairs and do something crafty with the kids. Well, the 6 month old saves all his craft for the diaper and the high chair.
Happy V-Day.

The picture for Rob is fabulous -- did you take that? I hope I remember to steal your idea for the kids' valentine's treats for my family next year. Mine each just got a really big Hershey's Kiss (but since they don't read your blog, they think they did fine!). You are so creative.
Cordially,
Melora

Very nice! I wish you could kind of get the heads to rotate clockwise. What's the HTML for that?

Aw, what a cute photo...but what is Rob going to say when he realizes that you chopped all your kids' heads off just for a photograph?

Very cute picture! With all seven of them! That one is definitely a keeper.

Tell Rob's co-workers to keep their grubby mitts off of it.

(Not the same Erin who posted above)!!

I absolutely love this picture! You must be so pleased that it came out so well...did it require a lot of retakes? This is heads (no pun intended - haha) above the rest from what we saw from the Christmas photos. (Although I loved those too; how could you not?) Awesome job, Chris, what a sweet gift for your husband to cherish forever.

Funny, my boys also asked "where's the money" when they opened cards from me and their grandparents! lol...must be a kid thing..

That photo is awesome. It almost makes me wish I hadn't tied my tubes so I could have more kids so that I could do something equally stunning. I just can't imagine doing a version with only my three would be quite as cool as that one.
