Found this photo of my husband while unpacking. He was probably 13 or 14 years old here.
And I’m stating the obvious when I say my oldest is simply his mini-me…
Miss C just genuinely asked, “Did you Photoshop my face on his photo? That’s my face.” I told her it’s one of the best tricks in nature, daughters who look just like their fathers, but are somehow way more adorable.
I can practically hear “Ace of Base” playing in the background of this photo.
Woke up at 3:30 a.m. in a cold sweat because I forgot about Lola’s classroom Valentine’s Day party today.
She needs a decorated bag and cards for her 19 classmates.
Fortunately, I once labeled a small storage container “Blank Valentine’s Day and Anniversary cards” and filled it with random cards and stationery.
I found 17 perforated cards with a tropical/surfer theme dated from 1996 (“Hang 10 with me, Valentine!”) and two handmade cards with trucks on them (“Loads of Love!”) she can give to whoever she deems her two bestest friends. There’s a leftover gift bag now covered with her name and doodles, too.
Best part? I can go back to sleep feeling validated for hardly throwing anything out …
Today’s #TBT photo is from December 31, 2012, when everyone in my family crashed well before midnight back in Northern Virginia, and I welcomed the new year all by myself. I wasn’t even sad about it: more bubbly for ME! This year, we’re celebrating with family here in Germany, and they go ALL OUT.
I doubt anyone will be able to fall asleep this time.
For those tracking Santa, we can confirm he has made the rounds over here in Germany, bringing gifts from the North Pole and from family in the United States! Now get to bed and catch some Zzzzzz’s before he gets to you!
Today’s #TBT photo is proof that Christmas tinsel can make even the most precocious child appear angelic. This photo was taken with my sisters Jill and Jinger in December 1987 after my stellar performance in the annual Christmas pageant at my Catholic elementary school in Northern Kentucky.
