Comments for Picture Me Colors
Picture Me Colors: 12/15/06
At the last BookCrossing meeting I picked up two cute (and unregistered) books in the "Picture Me" series. Picture Me Colors shows a baby in a different colored costume. Where the baby's face should be, there is a cut-out. At the back of the book there is a spot to slide in a photograph of one's child. As these are babies, I've chosen to use Harriet's face even though I got the books mostly for Sean. I tried Sean's face first but his face looks too old for these baby photographs.
The colors covered are orange, blue, yellow, green and white. The costumes include pumpkins, tigers, flowers, dinosaurs, bumble bees, chickens, monsters, cats and bunnies. The costumes are cute and the babies (some of them have their faces) appear happy but the costumes aren't as quite cute as the Tom Arma books.
Gratitude #15: Melee:
I am grateful for the laughter we share as a family. The last few nights the three of us have been playing a few rounds of Super Smash Bros. Melee before Sean goes to bed. Ian and I have been playing Melee against each other since before Sean was born and the games always cheers me up. I'm really bad at the game and usually lose but the different characters and the various special attacks lend themselves to some ridiculous combinations. We usually end up laughing by the time we're done playing.
Tonight was an especially silly game. At one point Sean (who was playing Kirby) said: "Please step into my mouth" and then Ian's character (Captain Falcon). Meanwhile my character (Luigi but in bright pink) was doing all sorts of strange maneuvers. As soon as Kirby spit out Falcon, I started to laugh to the point of not being able to breathe. I had tears streaming down my cheeks and I was gasping for air. It was a refreshing laugh. Steps: 10000
