wordful wednesday and the millionaire

oh where to start with what's going on in this photograph!

firstly, i wanted to capture some sunlight on miss 21's hair, as over easter i became obsessed with photoshop actions and textures.  i got the sunlight ok, but there's really not much else to be done with this shot!

then there's tara's miss 14; visiting from australia to spend time with her BFF (MY miss 14)
having not seen an ipad before, she quickly became enamoured and spent many an hour playing 'who wants to be a millionaire', solitaire and zombie booth!

then there's miss 21 and miss 13 holding $2700 in large bills.

that would be because miss 19 had just sold her motorbike on trade me, and the dude who bought it, insisted on paying cash - on the weekend!  'i guess we'll just have to put it under the mattress until monday' i said to mr scrappy!

then there's the bowl of cheerios balanced precariously on our leather sofa.

why do kids do that???

one of life's great mysteries i guess.....

PS: fun trivia from new zealand for your WW:  that's Lord Rutherford of Nelson on the $100 note.  he's a kiwi (of course!) - ya know, that guy that SPLIT THE ATOM, won a nobel prize in chemistry in 1921 - THAT guy.

Wordish Wednesday

Live and Love...Out Loud    Better in Bulk
