Hubby and I

Since one of us is usually holding the camera, Hubby and I don't often, as in hardly EVER, get a photo of the both of us. But after church today I got our 7 year old Sofia to give it a go. Since we had our Sunday best on and all!
Well here is Sofia's first attempt....Yes we weren't quite ready.
And here - much better!
I got sick of my blonde/too orange hair, plus my roots were annoying me too often - my hair grows very very fast. About an inch a month. So yesterday I got myself some "Light Brown" dye and now I am very close to my natural color, which is a lovely shade of mousy brown. I am considering getting it all chopped off, but like most men, hubby likes it long. Maybe if he had to live with it for a day he might change his mind!!

Now I know, it's not quilt related yet, but I can always turn anything into a quilt story! So look behind my hubby and you will see a house quilt. We had been married almost a year, and was pregnant with our first. Hubby's birthday was coming up and I wanted to make him a quilt. I quite liked the pattern for this house quilt in a magazine. But I wanted to know if he would like it or not, so I subtly left the magazine open to the right page in the bathroom hoping he would pick it up and notice it. Would you believe it actually worked??!! He came out one day raving about this quilt he really liked and would I make it? Sometimes men are just too easy to manipulate!

LOL! Now that was a good one...a little sneaky, but really good. I might have to try it myself! B=)

Look at you two, so cute. Sofia's photography skills are improving! Great job Sofia. You are so clever with the quilt. I know I have done stuff like that before but Doug usually doesn't get it lol.

I know the gas is nuts right now. Doug goes to work about 15 miles North of the city, up 93. That would take some time off if you wanted to pick me up and go to your place. Then maybe he can come meet you half way on the way back. We will figure it out. Talk soon, Love Stacy

Nice story, I may just have to get sneaky with the magazines too. I can see the problem with the photos. I end up wrangling relatives whenever they get the camera out to take baby photos.
