us

we all went to see a production of "the lion king" on stage in raleigh last sunday. i may have posted about it YESTERDAY but thanks to EMBARQ we had no internet ALL DAY (done with rant). some of the show was stunning, some inconsistent, some just downright disappointing. a mixed bag, and a vague review, but that's not really why i wanted to post.

h was all dressed in his finery, sporting a godzilla tie, wrapped in a studded belt, and shod in skull-and-crossbones shoes. s wanted to wear animal prints in keeping with the theme of the show.

but the part i like best is the photo of all of us before the show. when i loaded the photos into the computer and saw all of us together, i thought: you know, who cares how good or bad the production was? we were together, as a family, and we were happy. i just love our family. isn't that sappy? and i thought the photo of us was really (shockingly) nice, even if i do look like i pencilled my eyebrows way up on my forehead a la joan crawford (i didn't, by the way. they just arch real high like that). and no, i'm not pregnant, but thanks for asking.

Awwww, what a gorgeous-looking family! That is a lovely picture of the four of you, Melissa. Also love the picture of H. looking oh so handsome in his Sunday best and S. is very trendy, isn't she? :) N. was telling me only today how animal prints are so hot this season! You look lovely and really tall or is it the heels? So glad you guys had a nice family outing! Loved the post!

Never would have thought about asking if you are preg. You don't look it. People always ask me that too when I where baby doll shirts or dresses. Lovely photo. I love the clothes for little boys!

What a purty family you have. I especially love the godzilla tie and the print bandaid.
