Move along, Nothing to see here.

Except for some pictures:

She's still pretty boring, but cute.  If you are in to stickin' out monkey ears.

It appears to be a case of naughty toddler, but then you realize that gramma is holding the baby for the toddler and likely encouraging the behavior. 

She looks a lot like her daddy I think, tho people tell me she looks like me too sometimes.  Maybe she's one of those good 50/50 mixes.  Too bad she didn't get my ears.

We went to Walmart to get portraits done, because it's 8 bucks for a package.  I made an appointment for first in the morning, 10 am, so that the girls would be happy, awake, and fed.  The photographer was 45 minutes late.  A lot can happen in a little girl/baby hour.  Violet was tired and fussy and Sadie was bored and not very cooperative.  This is the best pic of the two of them we got.  It's got character anyway.


We couldn't get her to fold her hands in front of her, so I asked her to hide a bottle of nail polish I was bribing her with under her hands.  While taking the photos I slipped the polish in my pants and eneded up finding it later at home still in my pocket.  I shoplifted from Walmart!! 

OK, I paid extra for this one.  I don't usually.

We are going to a viewing tomorrow.  Sarah was killed by her husband at the bar where Mark sang karaoke on Wednesdays. I have been thinking about her a lot since I heard the news.  It was a brutal way to die and she suffered.  She has a daughter and I just can't get the image of her laying there alone next to the dumpster thinking about her child as the life ran out of her.  It hurts my heart to think about.  It also makes me appreciate the relationship I am in.  I honestly don't think Mark is capable of striking me even if I was hitting him with everything I had.  I don't understand why some women stay with men that abuse them, but I hope this incident will help at least one woman realize that they should get out and get help before it's too late.

what an interesting post, K...
Intermixed with the beautiful, hopeful pics of your gorgeous girls is this horror tragedy story of this god. I'm so sorry.

But dang, you got cute kids.

I'm Scooter, but I might be a troll. said...

Honey, I need to support her and let her know that she can do this on her own. If she goes back to him... It might happen, but it will not happen because I said "it's none of my business".

She is a beautiful, sweet person, and I will be damned if I let what happened to Sarah happen to her.

I will quite literally be damned.
