My two favorite people in the world.
Lucky man, you.
I hope her eye is all better now!
Beautiful, in every way that word implies. Athena’s the spitting image of her mother.
Your daughter must really like you– most of the teen girls I know would take my spine out for taking a picture of them sleeping, much less putting it on the internet.
Then again for most of the teen girls I know I am their math teacher and not their dad. Ups the creepy factor a touch, I imagine. :-)
As I’ve noted before, any picture of my daughter I put up is with her permission — I think it’s important for her to feel she has the right to say “no” if she doesn’t like the picture (and she has said “no” at least a few times).
I’m aware of that, actually– doesn’t stop me from being impressed. :-)
Lots of love in this post, although I was expecting one of the cats to sneak into the line up. May you and yours have many churro waffles in the coming year.
Awesome. Becoming a parent turned me into a big marshmallow, and 9 years later that still hasn’t faded and appears to be more or less a permanent condition. When I see a post like this my affection for my two favorite people in the world, and I end up having to fight off a curious stinging in my eyes.
Love is a wondrous thing.
May your coming year continue to be blessed with such a wealth of love.
They certainly are tolerant of you.
Is that a new Scalzi pet there in the third Kristi pic, or just a friend of the family?
It’s her uncle’s horse.
There’s one picture where I just went “Hey, which one IS it?” Athena sure is like her mom.
Very sweet. Always nice when an artist I admire is also happy outside their work.
Sweet. Love makes the world go round.
Just lovely, lovely pictures of two lovely women. Hey, is Krissy still rocking the blonde hair she acquired earlier this year, or has she gone back to brown? (Asking as an admirer who is wondering if she, too, could maintain a big colour change. I’ve managed only temporary rinses before because ROOTS, right?)
That picture of Athena with the eye patch just makes me think, “But what’s the title of the book, and who wrote it?”
Taunting the tauntable since 1998
