About Me

My photo
I love to laugh and love with my family, read, exercise, cook and sew, all the while giving thanks to God for his immeasureable love and faithfulness to me.

Today was picture day at the Noodle's school.  I'm not one of those people who goes hog wild over buying school pictures.  The basic, cheap-o package generally suffices.  Usually they are decent.  Sometimes they aren't.  Every once in a while you get a really cute one.  So it goes.  I've got enough photos of the Noodle, so a formal one isn't too big a deal for me.  When she left the house, she was all ready.  Hairbow in straight.  Combed, untangled hair.  No stains on the shirt (phew...made it through breakfast without peanut butter glopping down), no milk mustache.  You get the drift.  We had reviewed what a "nice" smile looked like verses a "goofy" smile or a "scrunched" smile.  Bottom line, she was ready.

Everything was going fine (I'm guessing).  Her class had gone to their "outside classroom" where they go for a portion of the day, before going in for pictures.  As they were trooping back inside, the Noodle tripped over her boots and fell big time.  Poor baby!  Her teacher dried her eyes, gave her a cuddle and helped clean up her scraped face.  Then it was picture time.
While I haven't seen the pictures yet, I'm sure they will be priceless.  The photo will capture a snapshot of her in this moment, a bit more banged up than normal, but every bit as lovable.

Aww poor baby. This will probably be one of your favorite school pics ever though.
