Some More Pics  
So, here are some more pics I thought I'd share.

First is my mother with the newest addition, Gabriel. :)

Then is Zoe, wearing the butterfly wings I bought for her at the RenFest this year. And yeah, that's sorta me behind her, trying to get them on correctly.

And then, while at the RenFest, I had a henna tattoo done on the back of my right hand. I asked for the two things that have been my personal symbols for a long time: a bee and a slice of lime. Yes, I've been a lime fanatic for many more years than Diane has been Casey. ;) The tattoo is almost gone now but this was taken the first day it darkened.

Anyway. Thought I'd share. :)

Oh, and yes, I am fully aware that the butterfly wings are lime and purple. I did not specifically choose them for that reason. They happen to match her leotard quite nicely. Really.

I use LJs scrapbook for my pic hosting and I was having issues with it all last night. I hope the pics load for you this morning. Sorry for the issues.

I've always been interested in honey bees...and ants, too, come to think of it. Hive oriented beings ruled by a queen. But honey bees are so fascinating. They communicate via dance and they have four unique excretions of which humans harvest three. Honey is the only foodstuff on the planet that is naturally anti-microbial and that does not spoil or go stale. Archaeologists have found jars filled with edible honey that is thousands of years old. My fascination with their way of life and even the fact that they fly when they shouldn't be able to, according to modern physics, makes them the perfect personal symbol for me.

As for limes, I have always been a citrus nut. When I was a kid I ate lemons like most people eat apples. Rind and all. I've since become addicted to limes. I love them. I have since college really. My best friend designs stationery and she always said I needed some with bees and limes on it. And since then, whenever I can get the two together, I do. :)

I went to the RenFest today. It was fun. I wanted to get a henna but my mother profusely begged me not to get one. The downside on going your family instead of friends. It was fun though.

Glad you had fun! :) Sorry you couldn't get a henna though... Maybe next year! :)

I had some trouble getting the pictures to show up. I hit refresh a couple times, then just left it for a while. Then came back an hour later, and right clicked on the red X where the image should have been and clicked 'show picture', and lo and behold, I can see everything!

Anyway. Cutest kids EVER. Gabriel's so tiny... I've always been terrified of holding small children, because I'm afraid I'm going to break them. (I never touched my brothers when they were little. But that was more because I hated them at the time, I think.)

And I like the henna tattoo. The bee is cute.

Yeah, I was having trouble with scrapbook last night. Hopefully everything is fixed now.

Gabriel is tiny and you aren't the only one terrified of holding small children. Zoe was six months old when I held her for the first time and she seemed more solid. Gabriel at a week old was the youngest child I've ever really held and it was s.c.a.r.y.

Thanks re: the tattoo. :) I have a real tattoo of a bee, as well.

awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww they are both soooooooooo cute :D and dang zoe's getting big!!

how long did your henna last? did the artist freehand the images, or did she have a template?

Yeah, ZoZo seems to be on the "grow an inch every three days" program. LOL

Well, it (the henna) is still there, it's just fading a bit. I try to olive oil it every day.

The artist freehanded the images. I wouldn't have spent $30 on something done with a template. Not to mention no one had ever asked for a slice of lime before. I was the first in over eight years of them working together to ask for that.

well then that artist was pretty darned good :) and thirty bucks isn't too bad. i have some friends in the SCA who do henna and other types of temp. tattoos at events. (along with incense, stones, tarot readings... they're the gypsy women :) and i know that their more complicated patterns can go upwards of 40 bucks. mostly they do small stuff... but occasionally, i will see a young lady exit their booth with designs covering her arms from elbows to fingertips LOL

those kids are unfairly cute.

Don't I know it. My brother and his wife are both physically attractive people so that helps. :) But still...to produce children so totally cute? And Zoe is so frickin' smart. She was two in August and she knows her alphabet, her numbers up to forty, and some basic math. She is weeks from reading because she recognizes her name when she sees it written. Also, she's begun drawing stick figures with faces!

Er...no. I'm not proud. Why do you ask?
