beth's youcapture theme this week was kisses, so elle and i rigged up a homestyle photobooth in the sunroom (which, paradoxically, is rather coldish this time of year). we started off with strict adherence to the smooching motif, but things quickly veered off course.
[since the only thing my fellows appreciate less than being photographed is being kissed, the odds of photographing a kiss came out to roughly never in infinity. but as much as they duck and giggle and wriggle away, i shall keep trying to smooch those guys because i figure deep down inside they actually like that i try, plus also every now and then i get lucky and land one.]
the whole kissing bit got me thinking about how we express love 'round these here parts. for the younger two, especially, taking their temperature equals love. odd but true.
also, getting to crowd mom and dad's bed whilst reading bedtime stories equals love.
and mom suggesting you plop a hershey's kiss into your hot chocolate? nothing but love.
[right here, the makings of a perfect cup of peppermint cocoa. the kids prefer milk of the bovine variety, and i like to sneak in a bit of coconut creme creamer. delightful.]
and while we're on the subject of kisses, i'd be remiss not to mention a particularly poignant part of the blogosphere: kissesfromkatie. katie's posts tend to make me cry, and her perspective shakes me. take a looksee sometime.
happy thursday, friends.
