Males and Females Are Different

While editing pictures today, I was preparing some of them for digital scrapbooking pages.  I cracked up at some of them of Nathan and Austin.  Every year I like to get a picture of the birthday person and the rest of the family.  My family is a bunch of nuts though.  What starts out as "Awwww" moments, normally turns into silliness within about five seconds.  I've learned to snap pictures really fast.  Remember Christmas?  Yeah, that.

Here is the birthday version:
  I can't help but ponder the difference between male and females here.  I mean, I can't recall one time...EVER...that I had the thought to grab my Mom and see if I can lift her off the ground.  I have wanted to do a makeover or two on her when I was younger and learning hair and makeup myself.  I've wanted to play Scrabble with her to see if I can beat her.  I think making Christmas goodies with her is a blast.  I have even had the thought that it would be great fun to sing karaoke with her sometime.  But pick her up? 

It is impressive that he can lift Nathan though, isn't it?  I mean, just because I have no desire to do it myself, doesn't mean I can't admire it as I'm watching it.

Living the life in Virginia!

This is too funny! You're right, women just don't go around lifting people do we? LOL

I really like how your photos are arranged and would like to do some simple collages on my blog but can't figure it out. Would you mind pointing me in the right direction?

Allison and Tonya,

I use frames that I bought from a digital scrapbooking site:

They are so easy peasy to use!

Allison-as far as learning how to do digital scrapbooking, I went to different websites and just learned it one step at a time. There are tons of tutorials out there that break it down step by step. It is great fun!

Thanks Krystal. I'll look into that website. I really need to do something with all the photos that Dave takes and don't have space or time to do the paper scrapbooking I love. You know how that goes!
