This is really funny.

I usually don't post things like this. OK- Lately I haven't posted much of anything. But this was way too funny.

First you must be sure it is totally quiet at your house. So get all the kids out of the room. Otherwise it picks up their voices and thinks you are trying to tell it something. Anyone else HATE those voice activated menus? Maybe it's just me, but they cause me to sin.

Anyway- once you are in a quiet place, follow the directions and try not to laugh so hard you activate the voice system.

Call the Nestle Crunch Hotline at 1-800-295-0051. When you are asked if you want to continue in English or Spanish, just wait quietly for about 10 seconds and you will smile. Promise! Keep going and press 4 it gets even better.... I tried them all... 7 was my favorite. :)

It is my humble opinion that someone deserves a raise. Now I'm off to eat some chocolate.

Hello, My name is Carri...

And I am a photoholic.

I have to tell you... the other day, the lighting was amazing. I was in the middle of feeding the baby, and I just HAD to put him in his swing and go try to get some pictures of my girls with "sun flare" behind them. That's when you capture the rays of the sun in the photo. Didn't succeed before the sun went down, and since you kind of need the sun for sun flare, I went back inside.

Josiah commented that the lighting was really cool. I looked longingly out and said, "I know." He sighed really big and said, "Go on. You know you want to take pictures. I'll watch Sam."

What a kid. So I went out and too a few hundred photos... here are a sampling of them... no sun flare, but really cool anyway. I have not tweaked any of them. They are SOOC (Straight out of the camera).

I know you are thinking that no self respecting mother would leave the baby to be fed by his big brother while she went out and took photos...

Even if the lighting did give her photos like THIS one...

But like I said, I'm a photoholic.

There. I've admitted it.

I feel better now.
