An unfortunate photoshoot....


Here are some pics we took last week...it was a little crazy because we live in Oklahoma where the wind comes sweeping down the plain and nearly blew us away and Malak was sick...so needless to say we will be retaking these, but there are a few cute ones. Since he wasn't feeling good it was next to impossible to get Mal to take his thumb out of his mouth for more than 1/8th of a second and he was also deathly afraid of the grass (don't ask me why?!) and would freeze and cry until there was no skin touching the scary grass....so all this made for an excellent photo shoot! Hahaaa.

This picture of me and Mal was so close to being really cool. Oh well!
This is what Malak thought of the photoshoot.


Yeah, he's tough, he hangs out at the dumpster...and sucks his thumb.




Big news: Malak saw his first ladybug.
Bigger news: Malak smooshed his first ladybug.
One second later and this would be a picture of ladybug guts. :(
Ugh. On Easter we were making deviled eggs and found this nasty twin egg! It freaks me out to look at it...I don't know why...I like twin humans, but twins egg yolks...blech, I can only look at this picture for a second before I want to throw up. Seriously. And my sister in law Jenn accidently ate the twins!! I almost threw up just knowing that she took a bite of them.

What do you do with your leftovers when you're done eating? Malak puts his in his hair. I have about 20 pictures of him with random food items nestled in his sweet curls but his fave that he puts in there everyday is raisins. Seriously, every time I brush his hair I find at least 4 or 5 raisins hiding in there (luckily we brush every day). They're the exact color of his hair and are perfectly camoflauged in his curls!
Hair is a perfect spot to store any food...
a sandwhich....

ricecakes.....

goldfish......

more goldfish..... and I'm sure there are some secret raisins in there, we just won't know for sure until we brush the hair. :)

The picture of you swinging Malak is still very cool...even if he wasn't feeling good. And...the double egg thing...that is kinda gross.

Julia said...

The twin eggs is gross indeed. I totally agree.

The pictures are wonderful, and if you had not told us how the photo shoot was not successful, I would have thought they were amazingly perfect. I love the pic of you swinging Mal, and even more, I LOVE your dress! Wowsers! Very pretty! :)

The food in the hair thing is hilarious. I love it!

Who even knew there was such a thing as a double egg?! Yikes!

The photos are great! You'd have never guessed Malak wasn't feeling well and the winds were howling. I love the 'I'm so over it' face Malak is making in the one photo!

First off - way cool dress. Love it.

Second - Ewww to twin egg. Ewww!

Third - Micah used to do the same thing with his food. I have the same pictures. I love it. (It does end - I promise.)

Stacie said...

Pineapple Princess said...

Oh, my gosh! You are hilarious! You crack me up with every post!
Those pictures actually turned out pretty cool. You look beautiful, and the guys, well... you know.
Just kidding!

Funny post! The pics are darling. Malak looks as cool and hip as ever, and I love your dress. The hair thing is hilarious. Zoe uses her hair as a napkin. Got too much peanut butter on the hands? No problem. Just wipe it off on your hair. Pasta sauce? The hair's good for that too... It's like her own personal Shamwow.

Amber said...

really??? Double egg yolks... that is so gross I had no idea it was even possible.
I think you guys look great in your pictures, I love Malek's outfit he is adorable.
And, the food in the hair should win some type of award it is too funny!

Cute dress you are wearing. Cute tie Malak is sportin.

Gina said...

The pics are great! I would have never known the photo shoot wasn't glorious, you guys look so cute! Twin eggs are a little icky, and I probably couldn't bring myself to eat it. Weird. Cracking up at Malak's food hidey place...hilarious.

los cazadores said...

Tara you look beautiful in that dress! I wish I had the guts to wear something like that in a photo shoot. Gorgeous fam! (I laughed - the grass is scary indeed!!!)

I laughed and laughed at the Mal's food storage system. : ) And my favorite pic is the one of him being a tough dumpster dude.
I am very happy right now.
