I am playing with piknik too but I can't figure out how to do the black and white with the color. Is that a premium feature?

Aw how adorable... I even have premium picnik (which I never spell right), but I feel like it loads super slow for me (which I'm sure has more to do with my decrepit laptop with missing keys, thanks to Alec at age 1 or so). May have to try a little harder!

Have a great week - almost Monday grrr

I am sorry to bother you... I have read your blog for a while, I have a young daughter with DS as well. Kennedy is gorgeous.

I had a question for you (and your readers as well hopefully). My husband is coming back from a deployment in a couple months. He will have been gone almost two years total.

I planned to take my two kids to greet him at the airport. We had decided it would just be the kids and I, along with his two best friends.

Then his mother informed me that the entire extended family will be there. 10+ aunts and uncles, several cousins, 4 grandparents, 2 parents, 3 siblings and their spouses and kids, etc.

I am concerned about my child's sensory issues with this crowd. I just don't think it will work.

However, more than anything I wanted them to be able to have that experience of greeting him at the airport...but I'm thinking that he should just reunite with them later. I don't want them battling with 20 adults for his attention.

If he was coming home straight from the airport then this really wouldn't be an issue. However, unfortunately that's not the case. We moved 12 hours away when we found out he was deploying, to be closer to family. So we won't be living together immediately because I will have to stay for some dr's appointments that we've waited months for here. He also has to get us a house and get that all finished. So the kids won't see him much, if at all after this reunion, for another 4 weeks.

I wondered what other military families thought of this? I don't want him to be overwhelmed and I want him and the kids to have some time. But I feel totally petty trying to tell his family not to come. I mean they can always see him later... but who am I to decide who can and can't go?

He has also told his Mom he only wants us there, but she isn't listening.

What do you and your readers think? Would you take your kids to greet Dad at the airport if it wasn't just you guys? Or would you just wait till later to reunite them.

I wish I could just tell my mother in law what to do...but that isn't working obviously.

Thanks. :)

Hey, how'd you get the roses colored while the rest is black and white? I use picnik too, but I haven't figured out how to combine color and black and white. Is that a feature you only get if you upgrade and pay for a year? This picture is GORGEOUS!

Laura said...

Really this picture looks like a baby doll....well she is a Sincess!

Hite Family said...

Love it!! Okay I have been playing around with Piknik as well, Is that a Premium Feature??
