On the first night of Hanukkah. Or Chanukah. Or Hanukka. What is up with the spelling of that word? No matter how many “h’s” or “k’s” I throw in there, it’s never quite right.
Anyway, on the first night of Hanukkah, Rick really wanted a picture of our family. I am nothing if not a supportive, loving wife so I said…
Because the rain had been beating down all day, my hair was at full frizz and my eye makeup was about an inch underneath my eye. Not first night of Hanukkah material. Or Chanukah for that matter.
But I offered to take one of Rick and the kids because baby Harlowe’s eye makeup still looked surprisingly fresh. I think she uses a primer.
So this is pretty much what we got…
At least Rick was committed to the photo.
By the way, there has been some grumbling that this blog is too twin focused. I don’t want to say who exactly lodged these complaints but you wouldn’t be wrong if you’re thinking blonde Texans. I guess these ladies miss the days when I would post photos of heartthrobs like David Beckham and Patrick Dempsey. I hate dissatisfied blog readers so today I’m going to post Wendi’s (Texan #1) top crushes.
Axel Foley from Beverly Hills Cop….
Feel free to hum the Beverly Hills Cop theme song. I know I am.
And Wendi’s beefcake #2, Barry Manilow….
I hope I’ve made amends.
mama bird notes:
That’s why I love Oxfam, an organization that creates lasting solutions to poverty, hunger, and social injustice throughout the world. And they also have the best gifts in the Oxfam America’s new Holiday Collection. Instead of buying someone yet another candle or Steinway Grand Piano, you can buy a charitable gift in the person’s name. Like a goat, a vegetable garden or new books for a community in desperate need.
In the spirit of the holidays, I’m giving away a goat!! So you can either keep it in your apartment or give it to a needy family. Of course, it’s your choice but I really recommend the second option. To enter, just tell me where you would actually keep a goat in your home.
