Okay people! I haven't been out of the house much the last week, cleaning, taking down holiday decorations and having my eyes closed while driving through Houston. [:::kidding!:::] So, I am relying on old photo albums for a 'messy' picture. I think I found one that will suffice! This one is of Irene, our daughter, many MANY moons ago....finger painting. I would say she's a bit messy, right?




Happy weekend everyone, and Happy New Year. See you in 2008.

  6. What an adorable shot and yes perfect for the messy theme. I had a feeling you'd have a new banner up for the New Year and I wasn't disappointed. You are so creative with your blog.

  7. Ahhh...but the mess is still on the hands alone! Is there a missed shot of paint on the face, table, and clothes? That was my style at 5! ;)

    Great choice for the theme. Happy New Year.

  24. Good Morning Anni,
    Awwww, your Irene looks so precious in that photo. Looks like she is having the time of her life as well. Aren't they just so adorable at that age? They sure do grow up fast. "THANK YOU" for sharing your Irene with us. Girl, I would have had to close my eyes for sure going thru Houston. ROFLMBO. No wait, I would have had to go in the sleeper and close the curtains. LOL. Take care my friend and have a great Saturday. May God Bless You and Yours.

    Love & Hugs,
    Karen H.
    P.S. I've got 4 pieces of Fried Chicken left, wanna come and help me eat it before everyone else gets up? LOL.
