Its Friday already? This week has flown by. Christopher went TDY overnight on Wednesday into Thursday, up at Sheppard Air Force Base (where we both lived for our first Texas summer, and where we welcomed our beautiful Eleanore into the world) for an awards luncheon. He wasn't the one getting award, he was just speaking, but- he did get a free Olive Garden steak out of the whole deal, so, its not as if it were all for nothing, haha.
This weeks optional Flashback Friday theme, is anything black and white. Mostly because I had found this picture last week, and was just dying to post it...
Who's that cute little boy? Oh, its baby Christopher! Well, not a baby, but- gosh he was a cute kid, wasn't he? When I stare at this black and white image of his round baby face, I can see where my kids a lot of their features from. Its true, that our kids look a lot like me when I was a baby, but there are features associated with the face above that are slowly peeking out from behind the Tia.
There wasn't a date written on the back of the picture, just an address and phone number. I'd ask Christopher himself, but hes off at work of course. He had told me about how his mom had played around with photography as a hobby for a little while, and I remember seeing large black and white pictures in her living room of both him and his siblings. Ok the only one I actually remember seeing, was a beautiful picture of his big sister Steph. I remember very clearly hoping that someday I'd have pictures just as perfect to remember my kids younger years by.
Next weeks optional theme (seriously guys, don't stress if you can't find the picture that you have in mind, there will always be more themes, and really, you know we'll love whatever you post anyways) is going to be friend related. Any ol' picture of any ol' friend, with a story to go with it. You can be in the picture with your friend, or it can be just of your friend. Happy, sad- we'd love to look into your past if you'd be so kind as to share it with us.
