PINKLE TOES PHOTOGRAPHY: Preschool Wedding (Austin Children’s Photographer)

A nice little surprise, the boys were invited to stay with their grandparents this weekend.  They packed their own suitcases:


Only the necessities.

Clothes neatly tucked away…


The hubs is going to kill me for this, and I don’t know if I shouldn’t be rather embarrassed, myself, but here is how we spent our break:


We bought two copies.  And then the series. For shame.  [At least he can claim its for school.  I have no excuses.]

Other random pics:


Why does she always look as if she’s merely tolerating me and the big black box that’s always in front of my face?


He turns five soon. His technical abilities never cease to amaze me. He’s been changing the batteries on his toys since he was two.


It was pajama day at preschool Friday. He was so proud of his Pj’s and bedhead.

Speaking of preschool, we now arrive to the point of my post.  I’m not sure how to say this, but I have some news….

I became a mother-in-law last week!!

“How?” you ask? Simple.  There was a preschool wedding that I was conspicuously NOT invited to. Yes, I had to hear about it after-the-fact from my son’s teacher who evidently is also a preschool wedding photographer…


The beautiful bride.


The wedding party.


The picture that sent me into hysterics. Priceless.


The reason for the wedding. Yes. I am also a grandmother as well.

[Note to self: Must remind my children that typically, marriage comes before baby.  Also, no need to worry about that 2009 Mother of the Year award.  It’s already in the bag.]

    No need to feel embarassment about buying/reading the Twilight series. I read all 4 in just about 5 days over Christmas break. In fact, if y’all want to borrow 2, 3 and 4 so you each can read them, let me know and I’ll bring ’em with next weekend.

    Btw, congrats on becoming a MIL and Grandma! LOL

    shhhh…just finished new moon a few minutes ago. One quick caution…don’t go to see the movie, ack! After reading the book, it left lots to be desired. My daughter told me it is because I am old.

    So, now, onto the wedding thing…..hysterical! Especially the baby part! He does not look any too pleased about the kissing part!

  21. Barbie Plankenhorn Says:

    your son looks like he is giving you the same look as your daughter. ‘just tolerating’ the camera. i can relate…my son is the same way!! I love your work- very photojournalistic.

  22. Elizabeth W Says:

    At least they packed clothes. Mine packed toys, his stuffed animals and his blanket. When I inisted he *needed* clothes, he took the dirty ones from the hamper.

    Welcome to the MIL club! E married his love last year. They are still together. No babies yet; he said they are ‘waiting for now’.
