Funky Friday African Style

The Funky part...




(As my mom used to say, "That is a face only a mother could love.")

African style....


Notice my arms bracing Tori....the blanket was really tight but I was still nervous she would fall.

what's with the warm clothes....?? oh yeah, that's right, you guys are having fall right now:-)

we still do the american version of this with andrew...the 'gerry carrier'. some times it's the only way to keep him from getting away from us.

Love the pictures--so cute! I think I'd be holding on too, I always wonder how those ladies wrap their babies up so well!

I love the clock that you've put on your sidebar! I'm always wondering what the time difference is between here and there! :)

Very cute . . . although I wasn't sure until I saw the second picture if the first one was really you. : )

There are days I feel I need to be wrapped tightly in a blanket ... a great big white one ... with my arms wrapped inside so they can't move ... while I'm in a padded room....

Sorry. Got way off topic there. You and Tori look gorgeous in both photos.

Did you ever think you'd be quoting your Mom? Oh no those two faces are adorable - both of them - love you both to bits.

Love the picturs. Especially the first one. I love spontaneous, goofy pictures. They are the ones that bring smiles to everybodies faces.

It looks uncomfortably scary--I'd be afraid too. You both are beautiful. I especially LOVE the first photo. Tori has NO idea does she? Hee

You are so freakin' gorgeous, Michelle! You have not aged a bit!!! What is you SA secret???

ps- Mick is in Dindela (sp?) eating chicken feet and fried worms. Is that it? Is that your secret to youthful good looks???

How funny! Love the pics. Are you staying warm while we are in 90 degree heat right now? I even had to turn on the central air yesterday! ;)

Michelle, may I say you look great! I haven't seen many pictures of you since you've been in SA and there's something radiant illuminating from your face. Perhaps you're right where you belong and that's the best thing in this life to experience. So great to see this expression and radiance on one of my friend's faces.
