i was visting my folks this weekend so i was busy and off of the computer. he needed us to help him with my mom's Xmas present.
My dad had planned to have professional family pictures sone for my mom . he kept it a secret for over a month!. On sat morning, i helped my mom make cookie dough in the morning and then we went to my niece's 1st bday party. My mom insisted that we do pictures since everyone was wearing nice shirts. We though she figured it out for sure, but we just used regular cameras that we brought.
After the party, my mom wanted to go home. She had stuff to do, was tired, had to pee, did not want to go to menards...etc. she was trying to find any excuse to go right home. My dad made her run 1 errand and said just 1 more and "Trust me".
It was cool to see her face when we got there.
So she can't wait to see proofs and told my dad she is ordering lots of pics!
on a fun note, my niece Emma (1 yr old) does not like pictures, but she loves puppies, so instead of saying cheese, we had to keep saying "Puppy" so she would not cry or keep her hand in her mouth. I wonder what tricks other people have to use.
