Family Photos and Hairless Cats

I asked my children for one thing for Christmas, a family photo, all of us, there is a lot of us. We haven’t had a family photo since my kids were little, so I want one of our large family now.

I tell you this so you can understand the conversation I had with my daughter a couple of days ago:

Elizabeth Anne: Mom you’re on speaker phone and Jeffrey is here.

Me: Um ok

Her: What do you want us to wear in the picture, Jeffrey is going to have to buy clothes for the kids.

Me: I’ve read red, white or blue shows really well in photos.

Her: silence for a good 30 seconds, so you want us to be patriotic? 

Me: oh well, then, red, blue based red, OU red. 

Her: so maroon.

Me: NO! What! NO, crimson.

Her: mom they look the same.

Me: NO

Her: so you want us to look like Target workers.

Me: a good 30 seconds of silence, no, no I don’t. Dark Purple shirts with dark jeans, that’s it, that is what I want.

Her: ok Jeffrey is gone, and we are all going to have to buy stuff.

My conversations with my daughter never lack for amusement and I feel the need to share with the world.

It is not easy to organize 7 adults and 5 children, but that is their responsibility now. 

I can’t wait to take those pictures, oh did I mention the hairless cats that will be in it as well? 

The days seem to fly fast, today I find out what my blood work results mean, I have resisted the urge to webmd them. I think you all know how difficult this is for me, it has been so hard.

On a different note, it is my besties birthday, she is the best travel partner, sister, sounding board and friend ever. I can only wish that you all have a friend like Shay. 

I hope you have a great day and I hope I have made you smile a little.
