I have been tempted to call or email Brad many a time for some helpful hints or photo trickery...I knew you guys would come up with something cool. A double self portrait!! Awesome...reminds me a little of those school portraits with the reflecting head from the 70's. Those were all the rage with the schoolchilluns.

Brad is shaven indeed. I knew he was going to do it sometime soon, but it caught me by surprise when he walked in all barefaced. I almost didn't recognize him! Who ees thees man een my howse?!

We tried a couple shots with Stan and as photogenic as he is, he just couldn't sit still for very long and got very bitey.

The cool ideas are all Brad's. In fact, I didn't even think I should be in the picture, seeing as how, technically, I'm not even really participating in the photo week...but he roped me in nonetheless. And the beauty of the remote flash is that since only half our faces are showing, the camera can only add half of its usual pounds!

And, L, that's so funny that it made you think of those school portraits with the second floating head. You're right! I always wanted one of those back in the day, but no, never got one. All the cool people had one. I guess I just wasn't cool enough. But now I gots me one! Sort of. I guess I have moved up in the ranks of coolness.

Mama says your self-portrait is the best. :)

THAT'S it...Brad DID shave. The other day when I looked at this I thought to myself, "Hm, Brad looks...quite different. Oh well, I'll think about that later."

It's later. I'm thinking about it. What's it like being married to a bald-faced man?! :)

Well- I'll tell you what it's like- it's weird. He's had facial hair for so long...I think since 03 or maybe early 04...Anyway- I kind of miss it a little bit. But it's nice too...I don't know- the jury's still out on what I prefer. Which is funny b/c for so long I was vehemently anti-facial hair.

But he keeps having these phantom goatee moments where his tongue will go out to play with the edges of his goatee and it's not there. Or he'll walk by an air conditioning vent and his chin gets strangely cold.
