Challenge accepted.

I have been challenged.

Many of you have probably heard of Nie Nie (Stephanie Nielson). She and her husband are a young, gorgeous couple with 4 young, gorgeous kids in Arizona. On August 16th, she and her husband were in a private plane crash. The flight instructor died and the Nielsons were both severly burned. Stephanie was burned over 70% of her body (including her face) and only has a 50% chance of survival at this point.

Stephanie's sister Courtney has been keeping a blog, CJane Run, and recently posted this about Stephanie.

Inspired by Nie Nie, my friend Harmony posted this on her blog.

Now, it's all well and good for Harmony. She's tall and thin and pretty and has great hair and cute shoes. Me--well, let's just say that I become paralyzed with fear and mortification when it comes to pictures of myself. I hate them.

But, I never back down from a challenge unless it involves heights or spiders.

So, here are some actual pictures of me with the kids yesterday.

And yes, this is the BAD hair cut, 4 months out.

She never said I couldn't have fun with it...


  1. Oh my cuteness! That Amelia of yours is a total Ham! Speaking of her, I have pictures to send of her... but my upload speed is HORRIBLE so it might be a while.

  2. Those pictures are so cute! I also don't really like posting pictures of myself, but I need to also take more pictures of myself WITH my kids. I barely have any. Thanks for the reminder.

  3. Okay, you are awesome! Hilarious--that shot is so cute though--total personality shot right there!

    I think you need to come and help me process my pictures. Don't like your facial expression? Brandi to the rescue!!!!

    I'm so glad you took the challenge (in your own way! Ha!)


Be nice or I'll punch you in the taco.
