Secret Dancing

I've been avoiding even looking at the pictures in my camera from Christmas. I think I was afraid that there would be a picture of me in the background on Christmas morning looking pitiful and I know how much effort it took for me to not break down that day. And I know I've been not bringing cameras anywhere I go with conscious effort because I don't want a visual record of how much I struggle all the time right now.

But anyway, tonight I decided that I'd check out what I had on the ol' memory card because it's good for me, and I found something I had already forgotten.

Right before we left for Grandma Lila's on Christmas Eve, I heard the kids laughing and dancing in the front room. I ran out and managed to get ONE picture of them before they got embarrassed and wouldn't do it anymore. But I thought they were so appropriately dressed for the occasion and they were trying to be so formal. Ad had on a bracelet, a fancy gown, and her handbag was slung over her shoulder. (The whole handbag thing with her is a topic for another post.) Henry in his vest and tie? To die for.

*breaks from posting to kiss Henry's finger because he STAPLED it*

Speak of the devil... found this one in there too.

My little man. He helped me make a casserole tonight and redeem myself after last night's crap-tastic black bean soup. He wouldn't eat the casserole, but I thought it was nice he helped cook.

These guys crack me up.

  1. Ok, you have got to blow up and frame the one of them dancing. That has to be one of the sweetest things I've ever seen. Makes me a little teary. They are the greatest! Good job! :)
