Good morning, Sharon... if I sat around for a week and thought about how to do something as creative as this, I'd still be sitting and thinking!

Thank you much!!!

It is funny. I realized last night that it was Tuesday and I didn't have a Wordless prepared yet. I was pretty impressed with myself at throwing this together as fast as I did. 

It was a learn as you go experience as far as the coloring and styling of it went. It literally was a "surprise" for me when I was done. LOL

I love this!  What is the story behind all of those reactions?  I love the one where he is covering his mouth.

He was watching his brother Thomas open birthday presents.

It is a series of four pics taken in order as one of the presents was being revealed.

I was originally only going to use the hand to mouth pic and then decided to go with the collection. I'm so pleased with how it turned out.

The coloring and style was something I had never used before. I figured it out as I went along.

Thank you Grant!

2020 was the first year I didn't photograph the kids' birthday parties.  I believe Henry's mom took these shots.

Very good interpretation Ed! Your description reminds me of the "fails" on facebook. When people share things they saw on Pinterest and attempted to copy. LOL
