Well, my munchkins started school yesterday… all 3 of them! A lot of emotional firsts for us in the Fig household… first kindergarden day for Ella, first day back in 3rd grade with the same beloved teacher as last year for Zack and the first day of a brand new school in the 6th grade for my oldest, Ben. It looks like they all weathered it much better than I did and are quite excited to go back again tomorrow…
…a few moments on the front porch before walking to school. Oldest had to leave earlier so managed to escape the mandatory first day of school pictures….I love the fact that she still sits like that and just doesn't care. In fact she will show off those Dora unders to anyone who will listen!
Me on the other hand would love to just stay on the couch and watch a long marathon of some wonderfully cheesy old show like Remington Steel or Magnum P.I…. with a glass or 2 of wine. Why is it that they are just so much more resilient than we are?? I tell ya, I am never going to make it into their teenage years!
On the Pumpkin front….
Look to see what has popped up in the latest Better Homes & Gardens Special Interest publication? The Halloween Tricks & Treat 2009 issue is on stands as of yesterday and contains this wonderful ad sponsored by the one and only MODA Fabrics.
I know, I know why anyone would want to look at this much face of one person is still a mystery to me! But after an entire day of shooting 478 different shots of me and this pumpkin stack, lots of advice from my lovely friend and lots of emails to this amazing marketing guru, we finally settled on this shot. A little photoshop magic and we were good to go. Thank you ladies!
Talk to you soon.
