7 Days, Day 1, and some other stuff

I got inspired today to join a group on Flickr called 7 Days (basically, you take a self portrait for 7 days in a row) because, while setting up for a shot of the four of us, I took this one. Great idea during the week of Christmas, no?


It makes me laugh a bit. The hair, the poser pose, it's just funny. Now when I sat down to write this post, I realized that the first day of the 7 day thingamahooey was yesterday. So. A day late and a dollar short, awesome. Good for a laugh anyway.

We were all dolled up for Jack's piano recital you see, so I thought let's take a picture of us all dolled up standing in the doorway. Right, remember that we live in the freaking Arctic. I took two and ran out grabbed my camera and called it a day. Picture to come at a later date.

However, the following gem must be shared.

Sneer boy

Kamden is less than impressed waiting for the recital to start. This kid. I love him to bits.

Silent Night

Jack played "Silent Night" beautifully. He is, however, a perfectionist and was not pleased because he had one little bobble in the middle. I am positive he was the only one who noticed (and most likely his teacher because well, she's the expert). Silly boy. Trust me, he did fabulous. His daddy and I couldn't be more proud. Love you dude!

And this is has to be one of the best no parking signs I have ever seen.

Idle threat?

That is one threat I am not willing to test.

looks like a fun but chilly day. Can't blame Kamden for being annoyed with the wait, waiting is always the hardest part and most boring part. Glad to hear that Jack did well

You look GREAT!! And, I've started 7 Days a day late before - just take an extra photo one day! NO PROBLEM!!!

Love the one of Kamden. He's hilarious! And yay for Jack's piano piece! I understand the perfectionist thing - I hated it when I used to mess up during a performance.

And that sign ... oh my, that is just too awesome!

I don't see the humor in your photo - you look great!

Love the snarl on Kamden's face, though. Hee.

Firstly, you look GORGEOUS, hair, pose and all! And how cute is Kamden waiting for the recital to start?! Totally bring backs memories of when I was younger and doing piano recitals. Jack looks like an absolute PRO! You must be so proud of him :-)
