The Winning Shot

So many of you sent me lovely photos for the bizarro photography contest we had last week that it was impossible for me to choose a winner so I pawned it off on my 3 year old brought in Hailey as a guest judge, which only makes sense because her artwork is the prize. 

And the winner is…

Happy Katie’s family portrait!


Says Katie: “We are perfectly emulating the newborn Ella’s pursed lip / googly wide-eyed look that we laughed at non-stop for about 3 months of her early life (yes, we realize her psychiatrist bills will be enormous)”

Hailey agreed.  “That baby is funny!  She’s making a fishy lips face.  See my fishy lips, baby!”

And then she did fishy lips.  And then I did fishy lips.  Hell, you’re probably doing fishy lips right now.  And only a great photo can inspire laughter and smiles and international fishy lips.

So send me your address, Katie.  This art piece is yours:


Fishy lips forever,


PS.  Is it just me or is the font all screwed up in this post?  Weird.  I blame the Canadians.

  1. That is perfect! Hailey made a great choice.

    – Yours in fishy lips

  2. I love it! Great choice, Hailey!

    Is that an abstract painting, or is it supposed to be of something specific? It looks like a penis flying through outer space to me.

  3. Great picture.

    I was going to try to do this, but corralling 3 cats and a busy husband proved very difficult.

  4. Cool! 😉

  5. -R- It could be flying penis but actually I think it’s an upside-down elephant being sucked into a black hole.

    I’m on to you, Jeff.

  6. Hailey is a great judge! Congrats to Katie! I love that photo.

  7. I don’t know if it’s just my whacky imagination, but I see a cabbage rose next to penis/testicles, with little ducks following behind…an early inductee to the TS, perhaps? hehe Anyway, all are cute pics. 🙂

  8. I love the fishy face baby.

  9. Oh, that is excellent. The photo and the prize.

  10. Love it! Great choice, Haily!

    Fishy Lips forever!

  11. Yes, I totally did the fishy lips when reading this. Great choice!!

  12. I did the fishy lips.
