I was inspired by my dear friend, Snarky Marky*, to share this with you today.
My beautiful Monkey got her ears pierced a couple of weeks ago. Her mommy and daddy took her to get her ears pierced and then to see Santa. First, though, they stopped to see my sister at work. She looks pretty happy for a baby who just had her ears pierced a few minutes before this picture, doesn't she?
I don't particularly care for this picture with Santa. I would have liked to just see a close-up of Monkey and Santa, not the whole crazy scene around them.
This is the picture my brother sent me that night, before I knew any of this had happened. The subject line simply said, "Notice anything different?"My brother had Monkey on Christmas Eve, which couldn't have worked out better, since THAT'S the day of our big Italian celebration (The Feast of Seven Fishes) Naturally, Monkey's mother sent her without a headband/bow in her hair, so my mother went into her craft room, and made this one to match her dress. :)
I have this silly app on my iPhone and iPod that lets you play with pictures you've taken. I thought this was too cute.
All the grandkids on Monkey's First Christmas. *sigh* It seriously seems like a month ago that Stud, the oldest grandchild, was propped up on the same couch for pictures on HIS first Christmas.
All my pretty nieces.
I took this the other day while visiting my Monkey. I just threw it in as an added "cuteness" bonus.
*M, can you believe I came up with that all by myself? ;-)
