This Post Has Been Brought to You by the Number Four

When my niece was nearly four I decided to put together a little book for her birthday. A book about the number 4. I went around taking pictures of things in groups of four: four bananas, four ducklings, four boats, four flowers... And then I contacted my family members and asked them to get in on the game and submit pictures of themselves posing with four of their favorite things or in some other way representing the number four.

My Dad decided to go with "Grandpa Has Four Hands."

And then it turned into "Dr. Evil Has Four Hands."

Spare hands provided by my baby brother Steve.


My niece just turned six, and I still haven't finished the book. Not that I would procrastinate or anything...


This post is my contribution to Candid Carrie's Friday Foto Finish Fiesta.

People say my daughter looks just like me. Some might say "mini me." When my firstborn was a newborn Steve joked about "bebe--the other OTHER white meat." It's amazing how one lousy stinkin' movie gets so wrapped up in the family isn't it? :)
