Boomberry, Zoomberry

So, we have this pretty tree in our front yard.

See, pretty berries.

Not so pretty on the ground.

Especially after they get squished. Yuck. We swept and scraped them up this morning, but it'll be just as bad tomorrow.

Our Christmas card order arrived in the mail today. I opened up the box and showed the photo to Q.

Lady M: Who's in the picture, honey?
Q: Broom!
Lady M: And who else?
Q: Baby and broom!

Clearly, his father and I rank much lower on the scale than the magical broom. Thanks, Fiona, for loaning your broom for our family picture.

I'll stomp on those berries for you, Mommy!

It seems that usually the most beautiful plants in our yard creates the biggest mess. If you give Q a small broom, will he help? I know, I know, sometimes that just creates an even bigger mess, but it's cute to watch.

Everyone is sending pictures of their kids, but only the really SPECIAL people are sending pictures of brooms!

you are very welcome, our broom is Q's broon anytime! our cards came too - now who can we get to address them all for us?

Hahaha!! The BROOM, of course! THAT is what's in the picture!

Mom and Dad are so unexciting.

I love the stories. Glad to hear you had such a great Thanksgiving. Having a little one makes me appreciate family even more.

He's a cutie!! He's taking after you with the dancing thing already?!

mamacita tina - I can't believe that I didn't think of that!

I'll post the series of very special broom pictures from the photo shoot this week.
