Family Portraits

Tuesday nights from 7 to 8pm you are guaranteed to find me sitting in the recliner, eyes glued to the television watching the newest episode of Glee. Nothing else matters. Lillie already knows that she has to wait for commercials for potty breaks. We don't watch a lot of TV, hell, we don't even have cable, but this is one show that I just cannot miss. I'm something of geek when it comes to music and singing. Probably due to the fact that my actual singing voice resembles a penguin gargling sardines, so it's something that's just a bit out of reach for me but a girl can't help but dream. And it doesn't stop me from jamming though. Actually, right now I'm definitely working Celine Dion's "It's All Coming Back to Me Now."

After Glee a new series comes on called Raising Hope. It's about a dysfunctional family who inherits a newborn, Hope, and all the fun with that. Last night's episode showed their family trying to get family portraits done throughout the years and how awkward and miserable everyone looked in them.Something very similar to this hilarious website - . If you have time and want a good giggle, check it out.

I'm almost certain that I'm going to make Alfred and Lillie participate in planned awkward photo sessions. Lillie won't have a say in it, since well, she can't talk but her photo albums that we'll show her future boyfriends is going to be embarrassingly awesome. I can't wait to bust those albums out while Alfred ensures he's adequately scared by telling him this (this is a true quote, he told me this was his plan yesterday when Lillie starts dating) -
"You just remember whatever you do to my little girl - I'm going to do right back to you twice as hard."

Oh man, parenting is going to rock.
