Thousand Word Thursday: PhotoBooth Edition

Having Photobooth on my iMac has created an all-too-easy means of snapping photos almost every day of me and the kids, especially my littlest one because he has been home with me more. He always used to come in, crawl on my lap and hit the photobooth button to get some attention while I was on the computer ignoring him screwing around working. I've culled out a few of my favorites, but multiply these times 200 and you'll have a good idea of how many pics are sitting in that file. :)

My beautiful boy.
These rascals know who they are....

Oh why, oh why did he have to lose those curls???

Contemplating life in the new house here in the UK.The boys seem to be taking the move in stride.
My alter-ego hair.
Be-wigged... And I didn't pack a single one for England! What was I thinking?

(Yes, I feel a bit narcissistic looking at these, but you know what? In 20 years, me and the kids are going to love being able to go through these pictures and seeing ourselves in our "natural state" versus posed for proper photographs, I think.)

  8. Really, those curls!!! GAH! And the wig - how fun is that?

    I'm not in many pics, either, because I'm usually looking like ass and or / taking the picture.

    You will love looking back at these. You will!

  9. Must be the mother-of-three-boys thing but I totally get your life even after the move across the pond. And my Number Two Son has announced that he wants to cut off his curls. (I'm hoping the hair dresser will refuse to do it)

  11. I think I'll use this post as an excuse as to why we need a new Mac. And I love those sunglasses. Not that I could wear them. Well, I could take them to the Pride Parade...
