How Do I Follow THAT?

I have become addicted to staring at photos of my kids from the photo shoot. I just LOVE them. No, I haven't even started the narrowing down process but fortunately I do get the CD so I will always have all the pics with me. So, then the problem comes, I post gorgeous photos - what do I do next? How do you top that?

Realizing that I can't I have decided to go to the opposite end of the spectrum :) You know all the celebrities get dolled up for their photo shoots but then a week later you catch them on a cover of another magazine as the "worst dressed" or caught in their PJ's!!

Well, this morning was certainly one of those days we didn't want any photographers around. And yet, I snapped some pictures! Can you tell this is my work and not Kate's??!!

Crazy, lazy pajama morning:

Want to get Rachel's hairstyle?

Step 1: Have someone make you a bunch of yummy pancakes
Step 2: Pour syrup on pancakes
Step 3: Eat pancakes
Step 4: Take empty plate, turn upside down and place on head
Step 5: It's kind of a dump and go kind of look so there's not much else to do but smile and rub in a little extra syrup.

And yep, that's what I'm left with - hard and crusty hair. So, my previous post is what I'd like it to be and today this is reality...

So I take it that you like the photographer? Girls are so precious even with syrup in the hair :)

What is it with the syrup plate on the head thing? My boys do that everytime. . .

Don't you just love the way they end up smelling like syrup all day when they have it for breakfast... seriously, even after I've washed hands and changed their clothes?!? Right there with ya.

Too funny! Glad to know mine aren't the only ones placing empty bowls/plates on their heads.

I think you should be able to look at great pix of the kids ANYTIME YOU WANT. If it brings a smile to your face...surround yourself with it!

I don't blame you...I keep staring at your children's pictures when I link to your blog. :)
Don't you love that "just woken up" hair? :)

Syrup, tomato sauce, mashed potatoes, and peanut butter have all been styling products for my kids. Especially if they just had a bath recently. I think they are trying to simulate the feeling of the gunk they were covered in at birth (vernix?). Some day they will be all grown up with perfectly styled hair (we hope) and we'll just want to dump a plate of speghetti on them for old times sake. Right?
