For instance they like to play America's Next Top Model and have "challenges". They decided they had 5 minutes to find a ninja costume. See below:
D. with his fiercely scary Ninja sword and yes that is a yo-yo on his head and no I could not quit laughing for a good 20 minutes. I am surprised I could hold still long enough to take the photo.
A few more shots:
They certainly do not lack creativity.
Anyways, finding those photos gave me a laugh. BUT I also found my funny face folder I was saving for a project. This project is going to be a huge surprise for my family (at least the ones who don't read my blog LOL). See the when the kids keep making the deliberate funny faces and screwing up the pictures I have decided to use the pictures anyways. I found this great place that takes digital photos and makes them into custom wallpapers. I am going to take all these funny face photos and turn them into wallpaper and put them up in our bathroom. YEP - you heard me - all around our BATHROOM!
Photos like these would be great right near the toilet - now two of them are NOT family members but the expressions are just so perfect and too funny they had to be included:
I have more too but some of them are extended family I don't necessarily have their permission to put their images up. The people above whose images are up half their faces are covered so people who don't know them wouldn't be able to identify them.
So yeah - I am a little warped. I think it would make a wonderful wallpaper and would be hilarious. I keep adding to the file every family outing, every holiday, everytime someone makes a funny face while I have my camera out. Go ahead let the kids "ruin" the pictures. Just wait till later when it is PAYBACK time!
I don't let myself be photographed often. I have two photos of myself with L. this year. One is right after we taught her how to use makeup and we had just had makeovers. The other was right before the zombie walk in Yellow Springs when we were in full zombie makeup. The makeup one is only in my phone and hard to access. SO, it looks like this is what my mother-in-law may end up with for her Christmas letter: Isn't the shirt lovely for all her friends and extended family to see? She is gonna love me. ha!
