Meet Da Family

Many people who view this blog have websites (they're not as lazy as I), and on those websites they share their families. I, for one, love to see other people's families. I'm one of those people who don't moan when people haul out photo albums. Thus it's not a great surprise that I love to view these online photo albums. What's missing though is the stories.

The stories are those little explanations that come with each picture. I love hearing about how that picture of Little Sue Sue was taken after she drank a fifth of vodka and called some girl a slut. The stories compliment the pictures and tell more about not just the photo but about the person showing the photos.

With that in mind, I'm going to introduce my lovely nuclear, suburban family one by one. I thought I'd use this post as a brief introduce to the Stickney-Castillo brood. And yes we really do have a brood...

Horacio and I meet six years ago at a party. I drank 6 shots of vodka and kicked a door shut in his face when he tried to be my knight. Yes I often point out to him that it was a good warning to run for the hills. Alas he didn't, and we ended up married with children. Scary. I'm one of those people who probably shouldn't have bred but hell they're here now, and if anything they're cute.

So the nuclear part of our family: Umberto, 6, Camille 3, and Piper Blue 14 months. They're nutsy little fairies but we love them and shelter them. Sometimes we even feed them.

Thanks for sharing your families, hope you enjoy mine.

Yes, it's true, they are very cute... I still remember Umberto, trying to take his firts steps in Horacio's parents house. He was small and he had these little teeth, and a big lovely smile... Thanks for sharing the story!
