I think I still have that cone of thread


Last week my sister was up late one night, unable to sleep, and for some crazy reason she started going through old e-mail and forwarding it to me.

And by old, I mean prehistoric.  That picture was taken on December 4, 2001, the day my first quilting machine arrived.

Where do I start?  The hair?  The glasses?  The deer-in-the-headlight-look?

The other stuff she sent me was about the boys when they were really small — some really cute photos I had shared.  What was really funny, though, was the e-mail I had sent (to my whole family!) about potty-training.   I do NOT remember this, but Will would sit and say “two more squirts” and then and then after one squirt, he’d say “two more squirts” and keeps going like that….

Aren’t you glad I shared?

Oh look — here’s the two cute-kid photos she shared.  Mark even looks like a baby in this one:

And this one just makes laugh:


(September 19, 2001).  They were posing, saying “Hmmmm.”  Don’t you want to just reach out and poke those bellies?

I could get lost for hours looking at old pictures.  As much as I enjoy playing with my pictures digitally, I need to spend some time actually printing some, I think the boys would enjoy paging through them, too.

I’ll get on that tomorrow.

Or maybe the day after.
