Stuffed Portrait Day!

Today, class we have three stuff portraits to cover:

1. Favourite Framed Picture
2. Magazine Subscriptions
3. Household Pet Peeve

For numero uno I have trois. Because I don't subscribe to any mags, just get my morning paper. Wait! I subscribe to Chatelaine, which is a Canadian fashion/home magazine. Sorry, forgot. But as I have already uploaded pictures, I ain't about to go downstairs and take more. As it is now, there are four kids (neice Dayna staying over for the week) on my bed behind me, singing, "I LOVE rock n ROLL!"

And if I go away, they just might dismantle the joint. SO. First is a favourite framed picture. Of which I have three! And this is just a sampling! I lurve my pictures. That's why I framed them.
Here is the first.

This is my sister Jen on the left, me in the middle, and my brother Charlie on the right. I love this photo. We are ages 1, 2, and 3, and we are sitting on the dining room table.

This is me and Sam at my wedding. Once in a blue moonage I actually like a picture of myself. And this is one of them.

Lastly, a picture of my kids, all taken when each of them was about ten months old. I love to stare at this and find sameness in the little faces.

And of course, differences. It's kinda cool.

The third thing is a household pet peeve. Mine (among many) are tHE CRACKS. This house is CHOCK full of cracks. Which are not only visually unsightly but keep me awake at night wondering when the left side of this house is going to simply sink into the ground.

Okay, everyone has left my room, to wreak havoc on respctive corners. I hear the bathroom tap running, the toaster popping, and some strange thomping in the living room.

I, too, hate the cracks.

The pic of you and the sibs? Scrumptrillescent. Totally.
I'd frame it and hang it in my living room, oh, yes indeedy.

And I know I've said this before, but your kids are such cuties. They grow up SO FAST, though, huh?

Oh, and...
Just say NO to crack!
That is all. Carry on.

Hi Amy!
I just had to say that I absolutely love your pictures! I know others have said it but your kids are adorable and I really quite like that framed picture of you and your siblings. There is nothing quite like capturing a random moment in time like that one. Very nice!

I love your pictures. The one of you and your sibs is SO freakin' cute.

And the one of your kids all at the same age. Precious.

And I must agree - crack is whack.

Ok, but your cracks..they scare me! And I live in the Land of Earthquakes (California).

Good stuff. I, like everyone else, love the photo of you and you siblings! Of course the photos of your kiddies are cute, with faces like that-how could they not be!

Hey Amy!
Very sweet pics! I keep meaning to email ya but I just haven't had much time on the computer lately. I'm off work now though until Sept. 2006(yahoo) so I should have more time. I can't believe how big Lucy is getting. Tae's b-day is this week. 4 already, next year school! Scary!

Very darling pictures of you as a child and at your wedding. I'll admit I spent a while checking out the similarities and difference in the babies' pictures too! It's so fun to do that.

Sorry about the cracks. You can't hardly fill, paint, or hide them because they always come back. Curtains on the ceiling sounds like a fabulous trend to start.

I love the pic with your siblings. That is so precious!
