09/15/09 - Mario
Today was going to be a great blue heron shot from the museum. But, when you take a picture of your kid that looks like this, it kindof trumps a heron:-)
In case you can't keep the boys straight, this is Johnny age 5.
First off, the boys and I love Halloween. The kids are already asking me to start getting out the decorations...and there are many. Second, We had been looking at costumes in a magazine, and the boys had pretty much instantaneously picked out Mario and Luigi. It was so convenient that they didn't fight over who would be who. I was surprised that Joey wanted to be Luigi and not Mario. Third, we were in WM (Wal-Mart) on Sunday and oh my but they had the exact costumes in their newly put out Halloween stuff. And, they had 1 of each of the right sizes for the boys. How lucky was that?!? If I ever say that life is a real downer, do remind me that sometimes I get lucky and things go great. Now, I would like to think that I could have tucked them away until mid October or something, but the boys were asking me every 5 minutes to try them on, and I couldn't resist a photo shoot. In my house, a photo shoot constitutes entirely clearing the kitchen table (no small feat) and letting the kids do funny poses on top of the table. (And, yes, we have a lot of kids' books! At least 3000.).
Maybe the GBH (great blue heron) will go up tomorrow...
