The preschool photographer rocked this year: she was blazingly fast, she listened when I asked her to pose the girls together (because, come on, all the relatives really want is one nice wallet photo of both girls), and she chose one good shot and printed it in a few sizes so I didn't have to agonize over any choices. Ahhhhhhh. I still haven't done the girls' birthday shoot yet. Am running out of time, but TubaDad's family is flying into town today and I had to get the house ship shape and the beds ready, and plan for Ro's birthday party* on Saturday (she wanted a party at Pump It Up with friends) and Ree's birthday party* on Tuesday (she wanted a "flamly-only" party at home). So I've got a few balls in the air. Maybe we can get it done sometime this week... * I know, they were both born on Oct 6, but we figure they'd each get a party if they were born on different days, so there's no reason to lump them together just because they're twins. They both go to each other's party, obviously, and we sing Happy Birthday twice at each party. For the last two years it has worked out that one wants a big party that their friends come to and one wants a family-only party at home. We might have to come up with something creative if both girls decide they want big parties with all of their friends in attendance, but for now it's working for us.
