First off, I should say that title is a joke.  Any really great pictures that make it out of my camera are mostly the fault of the ridiculous amount of pictures that I do take and a camera that does a nice job…  But I digress.

Today I realized that I havent posted new Facebook pictures in months and really wanted a new profie picture.  I know, super exciting and an important way to spend a Saturday.  But we also went to the beach so I don’t feel too bad.  Of the beach though, we have no pictures.  This, however, made it to the blog?  Hmmm.  Anyhow, I tried, unsuccessfully, to take a picture of myself in front of the mirror.  I really thought it’d be easy, but I kept getting weird pictures, weird angles, and a lot of camera.  I thought that this series of photos was kind of funny so I thought I’d share.

I like this one because my hair looks like Princess Leia’s.  I was wearing piggytails and my new longer hair (which to most people is still short hair) is still short enough that they are close to  my head and curl just enough to look like buns.  But in this picture, I looked at myself instead of the camera  and the camera ended up being the focal point.  Uncool.  My camera does not have its own facebook page!

Again not looking at the camera.  What was funny to me was that I THOUGHT that I was looking at the camera.  The whole thing was just confusing.

And finally, when I did look into the camera, the camera blocks my face.  Then the batteries died and I ended up with this silly attempt at a facebook profile picture.  And by this time I have a weird look on my face because I was getting a little bit frustrated that I could not get this.  And I did not stop at four pictures, oh no.  I have many many more.  Of me NOT looking at the camera or the camera in front of my face.  Obviously I still need to work on my mirror self portrait taking skills.  Eventually, Bradley came around and just took some of me, but I am still going to have to figure this out!

    Tami was leaving to go out with her friend and the kids begged to go with her. I said, "you don't want to go with mom, she is going to the Tapas bar and we are going to stay here and play games."

    Gigi stiffened, "That's weird", she said as she blushed. I processed fast and realized the problem. "TAPAS bar. It means 'small plate', not TOPLESS bar!"

    The checker at the store asked our always conversational little boy what his name was. He replied "Jude" then added "but sometimes they call me pumpkin brown". LOL.

    And they are right. We call him that after the folksong that we sing sometimes.

A long time ago…
