Exhausted Again!

This has been a long day and I'm barely awake--let's hope I can write this!

Today was the day of Don's dad's memorial service so the kids were all dressed up:

We had a nice lunch with Don's mom and a lot of other family members--here's Pickle enjoying her rainbow sherbet:
Mommy and Pickle hug!
Here's a family portrait. I hate how I look in it--but I'm showing you anyway!
Pickle in her pretty dress.
The service went really well and Don did a great job on his speech--I thought it was the best!

Here's Gooser and Pickle after the ceremony:

Later in the evening we went to an art opening by one of my favorite photographers, Chris Anthony. In his new series of photographs my hero, Gerard Way, was a model and there was talk that he was going to be at the opening. I was SUPER excited and made the whole family stay and wait for three (long) hours--but he never showed (Sob!!). I am soooooooo disappointed!!! I was proud of the kids though--they were really good there!

Here's Pickle checking out the photos:

Andy and Pickle at the gallery:

And here's another ugly pic of me with Chris Anthony:
And yet another ugly pic of me with Emily Deschanel--she's in that tv show "Bones" and also the model in one of the photos we own. She's really pretty...She was very nice and said nice things about my kids. Here's the photo we own--it's called "Emily."

That's all for today folks--must get some sleep!!

I'm sorry about your loss. Days of loss really are so exhausting, I hope you're now getting a little time to rest.

Really fun photos. The pic you own is BEAUTIFUL.

And NONE of them are UGLY. You rock.
