Phreakin' Photoblog Phriday

I can't believe it, I'm doing it again this week. Someone high five me!

We begin this week's photographic journey with my daughter and I in a forced hug. As she gets older it's only going to get worse, I realize this. If I have to get her in a half-nelson to get her to love on me, then so be it.

Who are these masked men? That would be my son and my nephew. They do this a lot - pull their sock hats down over their faces and run around until they run into each other or something like a wall or a tree. They are so special.

This was taken of Tater and her obvoiusly feral child on a hayride this last fall. I'm not sure, but I'm thinking that the blood clot was causing her to make this face, we just didn't know she had it yet. Doesn't it look like a lack of circulation to you?

This is Mr. Diva and Sam. On the tractor. Duh.

This picture of Kady is nearly 2 years old, but it is one of my favorites. So chic, so redneck, all at the same time. I like her versatility.

And here we have Tater cheerily painting the Farmette back in the fall. We had really been painting a lot.


But I think this is my all-time favorite set of pictures. The whole fam had gone to Silver Dollar City in Christmas 2004. Mom was being all cute and taking pictures of everyone so Tater and I posed. The result of that first pose was this:

But then something strange happened between the last frame and this one. We lost about 450 IQ points and had obviously been beat with the ugly stick:

So there you go! Happy Phriday everyone!

Mrs., that masked men pic is one of my very favorites as well! They look perfectly normal standing there other than the masks. Cracks me up.

Andi, thanks! Actually in real life Sam is like a very freaky carbon copy of Paul, but when I went back and looked at that pic of him on the tractor I could see a bit of me in him! Thanks for saying that and making me look! Abby, oh yes, she is ornery. She's a lot like me when I was a kid, but she's got her daddy's ornery streak lurking down below the surface as well. Kady is definitely a princess! I'm telling you, she will rule the world someday. Or at least a small country.

We....the people
