Sadly this picture was NOT taken right before Tim and I rushed off to a lovely dinner date or a movie. And, stranger still, it’s not even a staged photo.
The driveway — perfect place for applying a few finishing touches.
An internet/cyber/homeschooling friend, Lisa, has convinced her talented children to develop a graphic for our Tuesday Tips for Parenting. I’m so excited to reveal it next week. Hooray!!
In order to finalize the design, Lisa’s daughter, Allison, requested some pictures of Tim and me. Joshua patiently agreed to be our photographer but we quickly realized Tim was a bit unshaven and it had been several hours since my make-up was fresh.
Don’t they clean up nice.
Finally we were picture-ready. I’m sure the neighbors were VERY intrigued with our front yard make-up session and photography shoot. We aim to keep them guessing. Obscure movie quote (this one is for my sister in law, Jenn):
â€˜For what do we live, but to make sport for our neighbors, and laugh at them in our turn?’
I was gone almost the ENTIRE day (no wonder my make-up needed a little freshening). Tim was a sweet heart and took care of the children while I went from one activity, errand and outing to the next. My night ended with a surprise birthday celebration for a friend while he got fish sticks and rowdy kiddos.
Happy Birthday, Beckie!
