2010 Calendar

Every Christmas I make a calendar for my mom. This year's theme was Holidays. And instead of photoshopping my brother into every picture, I tried to fit my soon-to-be broseph-in-law, John Bobby, into as many pictures as I could.

Welcome to the family, JB!

For the cover, I used a picture that I originally intended to be used for December. When we printed the calendars I ended up cropping out the "Merry Christmas!" and just using my brother and I showing our "packages." Betty thought this picture was inappropriate, but I thought it was funny.

All of the pictures that make up the July collage were taken when we went to see my incredibly gifted cousin, Ben McGehee, play piano at the X-Treme Pianos show at the Beau Rivage. Not only was Ben awesome, but it's amazing that we got so many source pics for the calendar in one night!

I was originally going to use a picture of a woman giving birth, and having our kids' heads coming out of the hoo-hoo, but couldn't find a good enough source pic. And believe me, I looked for hours. At least that's what I told Betty I was doing all those dark, lonely nights creating this calendar.

The tombstone says "RIP Single Life, 1981-2010", referencing the years that my sister was single. She's getting married this year... unless John Bobby dumps her because I keep photoshopping him into the family calendar.
