HolyCousin presents: HolyBoys
Holy Mama! has moved to holymama.org, please update your links and feeds.  Thank you!

The lovefest in the comments of the previous post...? Thank you. Y'all are so kind. (and GiBee...? Valentine's will be on the 14th this year. Ha!)

When we went to Dallas a few weeks back, we got to spend some time with HolyCousin. In the space of an hour, she took great pictures of the boys, and then this week she sent me a link titled "HolyBoys." Hmm. Catchy. Cute.

And then I clicked on it, and just CRIED. And then clicked again. And cried. Again. Repeat, repeat, repeat.

Y'all are going to love this, but here are a few warnings:

1. you'll want one of your own kids/dogs/cats/ferrets/shoe collection/whatever

2. you'll ADORE my kids by the end of it if you don't already

3. you'll wish she were YOUR cousin. (and too bad. she's not.)

But it's a free service, and although you may not be the photographer that she happens to be - with a great sense of contrast and perspective - you CAN do this if you want and it'll be great! (but remember - you WILL want to!)

(Turn up the volume now, before you click below)

I love your kids, thank you for sharing. i am all for keeping the privacy but every once in a while it is nice to see kids without the big black box over thier faces. And thanks to your cousin for the great idea. I am working on my travel blog (we just got back from a MASSIVE road trip) and I am going to set mine up so I can share the trip with friends and family.

Hope you are having great day, night, month and year! :)

Ok, I will admit it. I teared up! How adorable. Unfortunatly, I missed the music because my computer at work doesn't have speakers but it was so fabulous anyway!

Mesmerizing. Meredith - you did a fabulous job.

Now it makes me mad that I'm stuck at work when all I want to do is to go to the school, pick up my kids and play with them all day.
