Take A Close Look





I just love this picture from my Mother-in-law. It is a sweet picture of my Hubby when he was nothing but a squirt. It use to hang in our hallway with many other family pictures. Recently, I bought the rose picture at a thrift store and thought the two would look perfect together. I found a great spot for them together in our front room. But the real SHOW & TELL here is that my 5 year old looks JUST LIKE my hubby when he was little. Don't you think? I'm sharing this because I REALLY love the picture; and I think that it looks very pretty in my front room. People are always amazed when they see the picture thinking it is a new picture of my son made to look like an antique.

So cute, and yes they do look alike. You are always impressive. I laughed at your little sidebar cartoon. This is so true.

I am such a goof! I just left a comment meant for you on someone else's blog! This lack of sleep really is messing with my head! LOL!!
I am going to the book store this weekend to pick up the book you recommended. I think any advice coming from a mother of six must be great advice! Wow! That is fantastic! My hubby and I wanted a big family too. We are definitely going to have four kids- if God sees fit. After four we'll see! I absolutely love my children and if money was limitless I would have more and adopt at least 10!
Thanks for stopping by my blog. Come anytime. I'll be back to visit you as well!
I love the pictures! Your son does look like your husband!
Have a great weekend!
