Some of you may have noticed that I rarely have pictures on my blog. I take pictures and I even upload them to my computer however I have yet to organize them and label them with names and dates (I know, big surprise).
After two years of writing about them I thought it might be nice if you had some faces to put to the characters. I say characters because if you hadn’t noticed I haven’t named anyone but the dog before.
Without further ado I introduce to you my family:
Alex is the only non redhead in the family. Until he started dyeing it that is.
Alex and his cousins. There is a shot of the three of them just before this picture was taken where they are all hugs and smiles. I don't know who set it off, probably the middle one.
Alex on his big boy bike. This is Ex#2's bike, we had just started dating. Alex had just broken his finger for the second time while out with his dad (ex#1).
Help. My mother bought this tutu for Maddie. She did so because when I was her age my father bought one for me. I have a picture of it somewhere. My mother thought every little redheaded girl needed a pink tutu. My brother's daughters all got one too. Maddie is the only one who still wears hers. All the time.
This is Stanley, the Bassador. Dumb as a box of rocks.
Mmmmm bagel and cream cheese. She still eats this way.
Mmmm spaghetti. See. Messy Maddie. That's the Sponge Bob blankie which is just about to retire for good.
Alex and his hair. Luckily this phase has passed. But not before he learned how to dye it different colors.
Same bike, that's ex#2 on the right, ten years later and instead of dating we are divorced but he's still hanging out in my backyard for some reason.
#62 That's my baby. Tallest kid, longest hair.
Alex and his girlfriend of two years. They've been dating longer than most of my marriages.
This was back in September. We haven't had a bit of snow since then. Weird, must be global warming.
Alex, Mom and Maddie '07
I am the official picture taker in our family and there are only three pictures of me because of it. This is the only picture I have of all three of us together. The boy has cut his hair so it is just below his ears, he is now a lean mean fighting machine and probably another two inches taller. He isn’t nearly as bored as he looks here. Daughter can still wear this dress but it is a tad on the snug side and a little short to be worn in mixed company. I was trying something different with my bangs at the time of this picture.
I hope you enjoyed meeting everyone.
