Kindergarten photo

This is my Kindergarten photo. I think I've shown it/blogged about it before, but I love it. I love the big round eyes. The flat expression. The little half moon creases on the sides of my mouth and I adore the haircut. I love that my bangs are cut around my eyes. They even dip down between my eyes. :) I've got static electricity going on at the top of my head, too! Ahhh, Michigan in the winter. I become an amusement toy the way my hair stands on end.

We have an 8x10 of this that hung in my grandparents home for as long as I can remember. I think I have it now.

I crack up every time I see this picture. Love it!

Oh, today is my husband's birthday. It's 09/09/09. It's a very cool day but he's really cranky...even though I bought him applewood smoked bacon and he got some of it for breakfast. He loves applewood smoked bacon and so do I, so I was almost guaranteeing that he'd be in a good mood. Tom is going to Michigan tomorrow and while he's in town he set up an appt with his accountant to file our 2008 taxes. Yep, we're behind. He didn't tell me any of this (I gave him my stuff for 08 a looooong looooong time ago) so he's been barking out orders - find this, find that. I set this disk here on the entertainment center a year ago - where is it? Ugh. Happy Birthday to him, huh?

So, instead of dwelling on him, I thought I'd post a fun photo of me :) I'm happy today! and in the long run, isn't that really what matters?!!

I love this photo too! What is soo cute that I hadn't noticed is that your bangs are cut around your eyes...like a raccoon! :) It's too cute!

I want to hug that little girl in the photo. She looks sweet and curious and endearing.

I remember the little girl that I was in kindergarten and I was annoying - a real talker :)

Happy Birthday to Tom. I hope he can slow down his frantic searching and realizes that he is blessed to have a wife who makes up her mind to be happy on his day.

You all are so sweet! Thanks so much. OH, I was a talker, too - I swear, this must have been the only time I didn't run my mouth LOL

My husband had as nice of a birthday as he could have. He made it until the end of the day, which is a blessing. :) I think he finally got all of his tax stuff finished around 10pm. Whew.

Thanks again :)

I love the picture but I love your description even more. We should all love pictures of ourselves as kids!
