Picture This

We got Karenna's five-year-old pictures taken at the Picture People.

I love the pictures they get of the kids.  The back drops are simple, so the focus is the kids themselves.  They are patient and fun with the kids, so they get very good shots of kids being kids. Also, they listen to the parents.  I tell them white backgrounds wash out my fair complected kids, so they pick backgrounds that go with my kids skin tones, warm browns or the blues and greens that bring out their blue eyes.

I had to pause when I hung Karenna's pictures up.  They looked so beautiful, but so grown up.  "No wonder the boys are calling my house for you, Karenna,"  I said.  "Stop growing up and being beautiful!"

"No!" she told me.

"But what if you get so grown up and beautiful one day that a boy comes and takes you away? Daddy and I will be very sad."

"Okay," she told me.

I looked around for help.  "Jude, what will we do if someday a boy comes to take your sister away?"

Jude made his crinkled up serious-looking face, the one he makes when playing Indiana Jones.  "I will get the boy, and I will take him to jail!"
