i hate to wake you up to say goodbye

But she did it anyway.

Kristi dragged me out of bed this morning. The day before she moves far far away from me.

We drove out to a park and took pictures of her children. One last gift I could give her before she takes them away from me.

I don't want to talk about it.

Those are darling pictures.

I'd like you to take some pictures of me in that basket before I move.

How do you get their faces lit up with out them squinting? Lovely, lovely.

Kristi July 31, 2009 at 12:58 AM

Great pictures! I am a friend of Kristy's...well not really but that is another story! You are great photographer!

Man, either I need to move to Austin, or pray that I can develop awesome photography skills like you before I have babies.

Great pictures.

Makes me wanna cry too. Maybe since I had my turn with that already, movin' away from ya. Those are such sweet pictures.

Hey, aren't ya takin' a little trip, near to where she's moving next week? You could save on that plane ticket and hop in her moving truck! Just make sure you show up alive, so you can be that great Aunt Ralphie to our baby! Not great-old, just great-great. (that sounded even worse! I'll quit now.)

I'm a friend of Kristi's too, and you are good. That first pic of Gwen is stunning.
