Or here she is with it straightened (I might be able to do this). Bethany, I'll be calling you.
This one was taken about 5 hours after he was born:
And here he is one week later modeling the cute hat and blanket that I crocheted for him:
Isn't he so cute? And he smells good too.
And here she is with her mom the moment her life changed forever:
And here she is again a few days later when they brought her new little brother home and she realized that her life had changed forever:
(In case you can't tell, she was having a bit of a breakdown)
Did you catch the show? I didn't catch any of the red carpet so I can't speak much to what the celebs whore to the show, but I would have to say that much of what was worn on stage was a bit disturbing.
For example, starting things off for the night was Bono wearing some strange over-sized moon boots. Then there was the disturbing number of men trying to bring back Michael Jackson's one-glove theme. Most of these men were music artists that I wouldn't recognize, but one was Morgan Freeman. And while Morgan Freeman isn't exactly a fashion icon, he is old enough to know better. Kate Beckinsale's dress was a bit dramatic--more Oscar-like--for the Grammy Awards and apparently no one told her that she would need to climb up some stairs which she couldn't do in her dress without pulling it up around her thighs. And then to top it all off we had the artist M.I.A sporting this look:
Kudos to her for being able to move around the stage 9 months pregnant like she did, but the dress was ALL wrong--especially since the four men she performed with (Jay-Z and others apparently of his caliber--I mean no disrespect by not knowing who the others were, but that is just not my musical scene) all looked fabulous in tuxes.
So who do I think looked stunning? Like I said I didn't catch the red carpet so I don't really know what people were wearing, but from what I saw I like Adele, Jennifer Hudson and Taylor Swift. Of course I can't find any good pictures of what they wore so you will just have to take my word for it that I liked them.
And just as a general (gentle) reminder, the Monday night performance by Syd Lieberman of "Abraham and Issac: Sacrifice at Gettysburg" is probably not young kid appropriate much like last night's performance by Noa Baum of "A Land Twice Promised" was not young kid appropriate because, like the conflict in Palestine/Israel, the Civil War wasn't actually all rainbows and butterflies--I know surprising--so you might want to leave the kiddies at home this time.
In the meantime, and for those of you who haven't the slightest idea what I'm talking about, enjoy:
OK, so I can't get the clip to work, but if you go here you should be able to view it--and it is worth it.
...thrilling match....the Pittsburgh Steelers only regained the lead in the closing stages...
I am glad I caught the report because I hadn't no idea how cuddly and dignified American football is (thrilling match!!! Love it).
In addition to catching the BBC report I also watched the real thing--which was thrilling--only I watched mostly for the commercials--except I kept forgetting I was watching for the commercial and so missed about half of them. From the ones that I did catch, well, I've got to say none of them caught my fancy. Which one's did you like?
In lieu of a favorite from this year, here is my all-time favorite Superbowl commercial:
