I love them all, L. Bet it's hard to choose one out of them all. Even candid ones of your kids are perfect.
Ash, you'll have to let me know what you think of the new Coldplay. A little story there. There was a night a few wks ago right before I started the new project that I was a real A-hole to DH. He came home with food poisoning from Italian food they'd fed him on a job site. He looked so pitiful and needed all the attention, so I didn't tell him how nervous I was about the new work situation. Actually, I did start to mention it but he quickly changed the subject back to his sick tummy. Later, he woke me up at 1:30 am for snoring loudly, after I'd only been asleep a half hour. I couldn't fall back asleep for another 3 hours and, at some point near 4am, started yelling at him for waking me up, telling him he should've had more consideration for the fact that I was going to start this new/old gig and wanted to do a good job. Long story short, I was mean, mean, mean to him. So the next day, I felt bad and picked him up a copy of the new Coldplay album he'd been talking about to make it up to him. And I get home, and he tells me he went out and had gotten it too because I'd made him feel like such a bad person. Not quite 'The Gift of The Magi', but it's a story for the grandkids anyway. (And I returned the copy I got him.) LOL! Anyway, we all had a dance party to practically the whole album. It's really synth-heavy. Would be interested in how you like it.
I hope your bum feels better too, Ash!
I'm feeling really pumped right now. Bodhi's little school had a potluck Thanksgiving luncheon, and all the kiddies made turkey hats and sang songs for the parents. Then we all had a proper holiday meal. DH & I really relished being mommy & daddy today going to our kid's school event for the first time. We could have taken B home with us, but he wanted to stay and play, so we're going to get him in a couple of hours. It's probably best to let the little ones all come down from their collective sugar high before coming home tonight anyway.
kate, your mom likes quirky music. I really like a few songs from each of those bands.
