gratuitous pictures and details of my day

This will be my last post until much later tonight. I'm leaving work in a few moments to brave the crowds at Best Buy for some last minute gifts. Later on, we are meeting my best friend Barbara and her kids at Outback (mmm cheese fries) for our annual Hannakuh/Christmas dinner. Barbara, bless her heart, has invited my kids to sleep at her house tonight, leaving Justin and I alone to finish wrapping.

I brought my kids to work today - as did most of the employees here it seems - and we had camera in tow. So here are gratiuitous pictures of me and my wormbabies. (If you have to ask, don't).

with Natalie


with DJ

I'm clairvoyant, so I'll answer your remarks ahead of time:

1. Yes, I know I look tired. I am.
2. Yes, Natalie always has that smirk on her face.
3. Yes, DJ is in desperate need of a haircut. He looks like I slapped a bowl on his head this morning.

Now, go forth and be merry.

Actually, that's the first time you've shown a non stylized picture of yourself (meaning no strange coloring in photoshop) and I think the glow on your face from being with your children shows through.

You're a great mom :-)

Has Natalie ALWAYS had that smirk? Cuz I was just thinking it was a teenager thing...

you don't look tired, goofy. you look beautiful and happy.

Wasnt my brat with you today? What, no pictures of the cutest nephew in the world?

I always love seeing pictures from your life. You're gorgeous, gorgeous. And Natalie can work a smirk with the best of them. It's a talent. :)

Great pictures! Thanks for sharing your family. :)

anyone ever tell you that you look like Monica?

Be Mary? I'm always the Mary. sheesh. ;)

Tired or not, yer a babe.

You're still pretty hot-looking for a tired person... and the kids are adorable!
Have Merry Christmas, Michele.

Not tired. At ease.

wow...not at all what I had pictured..but I was only going by the photoshop efforts and the gratiuitous cleavage shots that I have seen to date. Good looking family!

Have a good week! And I like the smirk on her face...she looks cool.

There is one child, secretly shuttling between New York and Columbus, leading a double life as Natalie and my own daughter Erica. They could be twins, smirk and all.

I'm diggin' Natalie's Atari sweatshirt.

You guys look adorable.

You , Natalie, and DJ look so cute. When can we have a family picture? j/k I think anyone has a right to look tired at this time of year anyway. Now I'm off to find some reindeer antlers that match my dog's so I can take a christmas picture of us.

replies to clairvoyance:

1. moms.are.tired. end of story. (btw, you look wonderful)
2. of COURSE she smirks. they ALL smirk at that age. i have a smirker. and she smirks just like me.
3. i used to cut zakk's hair myself. BIG mistake. besides, if it was cut nicely, it would just be MESSY.
