In Color

Okay, I never post pictures because I’m too lazy to take my camera downstairs and plug it in. This took some serious effort on my part, and I’m putting these up for my husband and my mother. The rest of you are welcome to peruse them at your leisure. Or not.

Photos of: Gardner Village with my three children and Jason’s mom. Notice Indiana Jones and Indiana Jones Jr.? Rex was happy with just a hat. Harrison takes his current Adventurer status very seriously (he’s currently outside whipping the heck out of one of our trees).

Next is me at a Halloween party in my bumblebee costume (June will also be a little Bumblebee this year). Yes, I know the horizontal stripes did nothing for me. It was the only modest girl costume Big Lots had to offer (and it matched the baby). Sorry about the cleavage, everyone, but I can’t help it. I didn’t realize that the shirt would keep slipping down so far–I kind of looked like a bumblebee floozy. A has-been queen. A bee who’s lost her stinger… It could be worse, I could have gone as a Pirate Whore or a Lusty Wench. 

I had to throw in a recent photo of June. She was so sick at Gardner Village you can’t see how cute she usually is. I love this picture of her. Lastly, a photo with my husband from last weekend. I really like him (even though I look fuzzy and drugged up. This is what happens when your five year old takes the picture).


  1. I wonder if you could dress up like a Comment Whore? What do you think that would look like?

    Great pictures. Thanks for the good times at the party. So much FUN!

  3. Love the pics and the cleavage and the cute chubby bald Junie and the super hot secret agent husband and the Indiana Jones Jr.’s and that you cursed in my comment box. 😉

  4. Cute little family. I happen to like the bumble bee costume. It is truly sooo hard to find modest costumes these days and in my own case ones that fit appropriately.

  5. Hey, we are in the 4 1/2 year old takes the picture phase too! Yes, we love our bald men!

  6. Dang you’re pretty.

    Don’t worry. I like you anyway.

  7. Yay, pictures! It’s so great to finally put a face to the rest of that mouth.
    My family went to Gardner Village on Saturday. Maybe you saw us, we were the confused asian family who had no idea what was going on.

  8. CUTE pictures! You were one sexy bumblebee! Thanks for being my “date” at the party!

  9. A you are a very cute B!

  10. LOL! Danielle, I hear ya about the hard to find ones that fit appropriately thing. DH & I skipped a pretty cool Halloween party last year b/c I was too busy getting teary over how terrible everything fit. It made me realize how lucky I was back in the day that I could just wear any old costume like my kids can now.

  11. Dang Annie, you really HAVE trimmed off the pounds. You look GREAT!

  12. Thank you for sharing the wonderful pictures it is nice to be able to put a face to the blogs..

  13. You’re as cute as a button. A wonderfully cute button you are! and is that you and your husband sitting on grandma at the treehouse museum?

  14. My daughter is goign to be a bumble bee for halloween as well. 🙂

  15. You know, I hadn’t even realized that you haven’t posted any photos! Your writing is so vibrant & colorful, that when I’m reading it, I can just see it in my head! (for me, that’s what happens when I read a good book)
