You know the best part about living in this brandy new digital world? It might be the HDTV, but we don't know about that around here. No, the answer around here is that when you (ahem) forget (again) to actually use the camera you bring to all of the family functions, your family sends you pictures! These are all compliments of my sister-in-law, Monique.
First up, Rich and I looking pretty goofy sitting together. Without any children around. Or in my lap. Really a unique sort of photo.
That's because my littlest one had cornered my other sister-in-law, Cathy. Cathy and my brother, Mike, have a new baby, Zoe. They didn't get to hold much of their baby when the family got together. Greeley kept Cathy from getting lonely. That Greeley, she's always willing to help. A real team player.
One of my favorite quotes was from Atlee over the holidays. We'd been to four different houses in just a few days, traveling to see family with family. At my sister's house, Atlee looked up at Cathy and asked, "How come you're at every place I go?"
If Monique hadn't sent these photos, I'd never have this shot. I love this picture. That's my Dad with Greeley.
I'd also never have this shot of my two girls.
Greeley's peeling the wallpaper off the upstairs hallway wall when Grandpa isn't looking.
