{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real} 6/9/2011

round button chicken

Oleander had her yearly flute recital this week. She was asked to dress in semi-formal wear. We found this simple, yet elegant black dress at JC Penney. She wore a pair of my dress heels and then I let her borrow my beautiful Okinawan cultured pearls. She designed her up-do. I thought she had an Audrey Hepburn quality.

Here's the full body catalog pose. She really was elegant and so pretty too.

Today Wingnut and I celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. So much about this makes me happy--he makes me happy, our life together makes me happy, French food this evening to celebrate makes me happy. . .

That double chin makes me laugh.

Oleander was so cooperative letting me photograph her, but we had a bit of technical difficulty getting a "natural" expression. I have several of these types of photos in which she tried, unsuccessfully, not to giggle.

I like the last one best; I think the expression captures her personality. Also why did you change my nickname! It's the Karate Kid!
