Frost vs. Sunshine

The kids and I enjoyed 27 degree weather and frost this morning…

In the meantime, Bill has been suffering through 100 degree weather and this view…


My heart is bleeding for him.

Once again, the view from here……………………………………….and the view from there….

And, while on the topic of my dear, delightful hubby…

On Sunday, I had the bright idea to make my “Cast Of Characters” column along the side of my blog. In very little time I had set up my photo shoot with Will, myself and Bill because I couldn’t find any decent pictures of us to use. Will was extremely cooperative while I took his picture. I was extremely cooperative while Will took my picture. And then we came to Bill.
These were the only kinds of pictures I could get from him…

Nothing I did could get the booger to pose better and let me get a good shot of him. I tried everything…from begging, to pleading, to telling him that the kids sit better for a picture than he does, to threatening the “family jewels” with severe injury, even to the point of bringing out the old “wonder if something happens to you while you are on your trip to Arizona and then I will have no good pictures to remember you by?” (And yes, I used my very best whiney voice while asking him that.)

Obviously, nothing worked.

I guess if (God forbid) something did happen, I’ll just have to remember the love of my life as the completely mature 2 year-old that he is…


I have no words.
