I've Hit a Snag

Allison's post reminded me of the project I put on hold last week. I'm making a picture book of all my brothers, sisters, in-laws, neices, and nephews for Abbey. Just a picture and a few things about them since we don't get to see them very often. I got through all the cousins on both sides for her book--here are my sister's kids:


















The kids were easy. Then it came time for the adults. I asked my family for a few of their favorite things to do right now or something about them. Here's what I've been given so far:

Allison: She controls the news, thereby acting as the literal gatekeeper of information for Salt Lake City, and in some cases, Albuquerque, NM; Phoenix, AZ; and Lebanon, PA.

Jeremy: "Jeremy likes guns." OR "Jeremy likes watching caged men trying to kill each other with their bare hands." OR "Uncle Jeremy is always packing heat and is within his legal parameters to fire if provoked." All very good choices for a child's book.

Noah: Uncle Noah knows nice people.

Sooo helpful.
It's pretty obvious to see where my sarcasm originated.

What a cute idea! Good luck with the grown-ups...it was pretty funny even if you wouldn't write that in her book.

I did give you a less sarcastic option for myself, didn't I?

And for Noah ... you could say he plays soccer and likes to meet new friends.

Is that lame? Do 1 1/2 year olds have a lame gauge?
