family pictures

Lola was a flower in her end of year school play. A very, very energetic flower.


Ian Dakota and Lola at TGI Fridays on Dakota's 16th birthday. His party/BBQ is this Saturday
I feel guilty because the primary thing on my mind is not the family and friends and my son's ascent into manhood, but the work and chores and shopping and organization Mr. Curry and I have to do in preparation. He is working 12 hour day ( ! ) and I am working full time to come home exhausted and lately, feeling ill.


Mr. Curry is working his way through the Harry Potter series with Lola. Aren't his Irish boxers cute? His wife bought him those. He is from a large ( his Dad is one of 12 ) Irish Catholic family.
Our family is non religious but absolutely devoted to Harry Potter, down to each and every child.


Lola took this picture of me. My bra strap is so lovely, don't you think?


Ian's 8th grade graduation- with honors and awards for this brightest boy. He works so incredibly hard and we are so incredibly proud.


Ever, in utero, 16 weeks. I'm 17 now :)


Wolfgang is very scared of balloons. He has been keeping a close eye on this suspicious floater, protecting the family in case it tries to bob near us.

My husband has those boxers!!! Except his are always gaping open in the front when I try to get a good photo for the internet.

Oh, and I can't wait until my Ladybug is ready for Harry Potter. We tried a bit this year, and she asked too many "what's that mean" questions, so we're holding off a little while.

cheers! lovely family photos.

Everything and everyone is just luminous and lighter than air :)

My mother's dog is afraid of balloons and vaccuum cleaners and the Kitchen Aid..she's not much of a guard dog :)

Sometimes pictures are just the best. This would be one of those times.

Your family is beautiful. I love Lola as a flower and her daddy reading to her. They're all lucky to have YOU. Cherish them because you blink, and they're grown. Thanks for sharing your precious babies. Blessings!

Evangeline said...

What a beautiful family! And being Potter fans just means you are the very BEST sort of people! We are all rabid HP lovers around here, currently listening to the UK version audio books after school during snack/unwinding time.

Sarcastic Bastard said...

I love these. Thanks for posting them.

Love you too!

Julia Christie said...

Petit fleur said...

I adore you all. I wish we lived closer... I'd be so happy to help you with party preps while telling/listening to jokes and stories in the kitchen.

Don't forget to breath. It will be fun once the hectic preps are over!
Peace,

Hi Maggie,

Great photos! Thanks! Home birthday parties are a lot of work, right up to the last second, before the guests arrive. But once you get started with the actual party, it goes so fast, it's so much fun, and you will have wonderful memories! Take lots of pictures.

Congratulations to Ian for his great grades and graduation, Lola for her performance, and Happy Birthday to Dakota!

I love these. The Harry Potter reading one is my very favourite.

clearness said...

School plays, graduations and birthdays along with a balloon phobic dog.........I loved this little trip through your world.

Terresa said...

Love your family pictures! We are also HP fans, I was on the lookout last fall in Scotland for an accidental serendipitious meet up with JK herself (sadly, it never happened).

You are a beauty in every state, but I like pregnant best of all, it is full bloom that is hard to capture in its fullness. In the first picture, remind me of one of my dear old friends. :)

house 09 said...

Maggie May said...

lol Kristi is it 10 then? i thought 12!

Maggie May said...

i mean 9! hm rapidly depleting ;)

just making my way said...

I started reading "Sorcerer's Stone" with Wonderboy. And then of course I started reading ahead and have now decided to read the entire series through again. Which I did last year, too. It's so satisfying to be able to go right from one to the next without years in between!

Such fun pictures!

Caroline of Salsa Pie said...

Great family pictures. I love all of them but my favorite is the one Lola took of you. Oh and you look marvelous!!

I wasn't looking at your bra strap, I was looking at your cool hair and the awesome colors in the window. :P

Was there life before Harry Potter? Maybe, but it's a happily forgotten blur, at least for me. :)
