Friday Foto Finish Fiesta

It's time once again to join in the fun sponsored by Candid Carrie: Friday Foto Finish Fiesta...After you're done here make sure you stop by Carrie's to see all the rest or better yet, join in the fun yourself!!

This is Cameron & my father-in-law a couple years ago...this photo captures one of the things they do with each other (and it seems to have been adopted by the other grand kids too) which is "fake fight" They make these ugly faces at each other, throw insults, "Grandpa, you're a monkey face", etc. The funny thing is, I used to do the exact same thing with my Grandpop...may be it's in the genes. So to me, every time I witness this, I get the warm, fuzzy memories of my own "fake fights" with my Grandpop so long ago...

Also, it's Mark's birthday today....Happy Birthday, Grandpa/Mark!!

For some reason, I think Grandpa's think they are supposed to be grouchy. My father-in-law tries but he is too happy:-)

That is SO sweet! Perfect grandpa moments and you captured it so perfectly.

I have to say, though, I am distracted by the absolute gorgeousness of Cameron's hair!

I'd love to help you come up with ideas for your my twin doll! Just because the ad is there, it doesn't mean I can' laugh at the company. (And it doesn't mean I can't take it down when I feel like it.) I like the idea of "Stepford daughter"!

Holy crap, do you know you have the longest word verification EVER? Geesh! :)
