The January splash was supposed to be full of confetti. I had each of them holding a handful of confetti and I took a bunch of shots with them blowing it out of their hands right at me. I thought it ws a great idea, and I'd seen examples that looked really good, but, nope. Their mouths were all weird or some were blowing so much it obscured a siblings face, either way, I liked this shot - sitting on our stairs - all smiles.
As a side note, do you see Charlotte's hand? It's covered in doodles. Charlotte has had some issues with self harm. She's seeing a counselor and she's medicated, but, she gets episodes where the world is horrible, we are horrible, life is horrible. One way her counselor told her to deal with it is by drawing on herself (and NOT cutting herself). So, if in pictures you ever see our beautiful, smiling, amazing Charlotte with doodles - you will know she's healing, and she's following the instructions she's been given - to move on, chin up, and if you feel like hurting yourself, then draw on yourself instead. Good advice for us all. Happy New Year - chin up!
