My look alike?

So, the other night we went to visit Joel's parents, but left Sophie here with my parents because she was running a fever and wanting to sleep. When we came home she had just barely fallen asleep and had apparently spent the rest of the time watching CNN with my mom and dad.

The majority of the news coverage was about the assassination of Benazir Bhutto, so her picture was up on the screen quite a bit.

And every time Sophia saw it she got really excited, pointed at it and said, "Mama!"

I witnessed this the next day while the news was on. And so I looked more closely, and I guess I can see where she sees a resemblance.

And if that is indeed the case, I'd better stay away from Pakistan for a while.

  1. Well, I would definitely consider that a compliment because she was a beautiful woman, in my opinion. I really don't know anything about Pakistani politics, so I'm speaking strictly from the physical standpoint.

    Happy New Year!

  2. She's just sensing your innate ability to lead.... :)

  3. I thought she was beautiful too, but ....stay home for awhile, lol.

  4. How do resemble her quite a bit!

  5. You need to stop wearing that head veil around the house if it's confusing the children! LOL
    Happy New year. I enjoyed the photos of holidays past. You are blessed with a beautiful family!
    God bless.

  6. Yes.....

    Stay FAR away.

    Does this post mean you are home now??? Maybe I'll catch you on your next trip up here!

    Hope the babes are all well now.

  7. Matt told me he had a dream a few days before she was assassinated that she was killed. Weird!

  8. I had fun cacthing up on your blog!

    And sorry about your strange resemblance. . . that's srot of freaky. At least we know you watch the news!

  9. ha! I can see it. I agree she was a very pretty woman!

    I am still trying to throw Isaac's stuff away, but he freaks anytime he sees me. Even old pictures or broken tires off of cars. . . Good luck with that!

    I love the girls christmas dresses. Having my own girl now I loved finding a dress for her. My only thing is I try to match a boy and girl. Thank goodness for Children's place that does the matching for you!

  10. YES!! I could see where she would see that!!!

  11. DUDETTE! (you can giggle, that's ok) I love your new header! Woot!

  12. wow! these kids are so Cute !and yeah even being a design i am sure i cud nevva made that cute header image ^^

  13. OK everytime I go to the bathroom there's our TIME mag sitting on the floor with Bhuttos picture on it and I think-I need to comment on overstuffed! That might've been TMI. Still, the picture of her is amazing. I really love it, you should check it out, because it's artistic and beautiful. ANYHOW-you do look a lot like her and probably just as intelligent with a hint of sass, whole lot of humor and of course you probably have a much better singing voice!! :)

  14. Good day !.
