Happy Valentine's Day! You can't hide from it--it's everywhere. Tricking you into eating more sugar than any human needs and making you believe that you MUST make felt heart garland or Valentine's Day will cease to exist. But mainly it's an excuse to make your kids wear something red and take a picture together. (Last year!) These are a few test pictures while I was getting the settings right on my camera (the stupid light was behind them and making me sad) but can you notice what changed in the two pictures? I decided to repaper the L in LOVE because it was too light. NORMAL!!! Somehow both boys willingly parted with their sunglasses/train/stuffed animals for the real pictures.
I told the boys they could have two Thin Mints if they took nice pictures and they took it SO SERIOUSLY. Look at Braden's face. He's not messing around about the cookies. He's normally above bribery, but he must have been extra hungry because he was riiiight on the edge of participating. I feel like he's saying, I'm here, but that doesn't mean I like it.
And then I decided to shoot at a higher ISO. So much more light! And apparently that made them like each other a bit more. They are killing me a bit. Braden loved wearing his shirt because he was "handsome like daddy" and Finley wore his until he got the cookie. He hates button up shirts. But he LOVED the karate t-shirt under it!
Are you sitting down? Because the next one kills me. With a capital K. I told Braden to hug Keaton and this is what happened. Swoon. Is it too late to send out Valentine cards to everyone I ever met? My favorite part may be the way all three of them have their little feet together. (And speaking of feet, Braden's feet are bigger than Finley's. I don't even know how to deal with that.)
And because Keaton deserves a few pictures of his own with the sweetest onesie I ever did buy...
Consider my heart stolen--by all three. Plus Sol. I think he stole it first and they've been stealthily stealing pieces from him or something. Happy Valentine's Day--I hope it's filled with sugar and that you know how loved you are!
