I was asked recently for a family photo that contained my husband, son and daughter in law, Cindy and her husband, daughters and son in law along with our Little Pawners, Maryssa and Makenna Mahaney by Kristen Webley at our production company.
You wouldn’t think it would take me so long to find one but, I have a family of goofballs and getting “everybody” in the same place at the same time takes “skill and coordination.”
It’s no secret that we have thousands of photos of the tiny Texas Twins aka Maryssa and Makenna Mahaney. Cindy takes a new pose nearly daily and uploads to FB and Instagram, Twitter as well as Google Plus. The Little Pawners have quite a “fan base” on social media circles.
My family members are always “hamming it up.” In fact, I don’t think anyone in my family has a “serious” or not goofy “group shot.” With this group of characters- you’re lucky if you don’t have “bunny ears.”
When my twin and I are “out and about” with the Little Pawners, we are often asked to pose for photos from strangers and, at ten years old, Maryssa and Makenna are quite the little models! In fact I can’t think of anyone in my family who isn’t either “outgoing” or a “character.”
Anywhere we are no matter what we are doing- there’s always someone “hamming it up” around here.
Auntie Mame was right when she said life is a banquet and, my family loves life, meeting new friends and giving the gift of a Dream Event for many families.
We laugh a lot and you won’t find a “shy” one in this crew of adventurous Dream Makers. Redneck Reality and witty one liners from Cindy Daniel keep us laughing with her hilarious observations that I call Cindyisms.
Cindy used to make me laugh in church all the time as children with an offhanded comment here or there or, when I tripped at communion. My clumsiness is the butt of hundreds of jokes around here!
I could trip getting out of my car and broke my foot in Beverly Hills en route to Lifetime on a curb stop recently. Did it slow me down?
No way Jose! I limped right along and Cindy had to help me navigate the airport, naturally with her witty one liners. What else is new? From trying on goofy glasses to shopping for events- someone is always laughing about something around here when not disagreeing about the directions, the restaurant, the gas station or something else. We flip coins to resolve disagreements whenever necessary.
My sister tells me to put on lipstick every time I see her. You would think lounging at WorthamWorld wouldn’t necessitate the need for lipstick and, Cindy would correct you on it!
The Little Pawners must be “photo ready” at all times with Cindy they are her pride and joy. In fact, even if Cindy and I look terrible, the twins are “picture perfect” because we want them to have everything we didn’t as children. Their wardrobe takes up most of the closest at the DanielDivaDiggs.
This year, I plan to “rally my troops” and attempt the classic family photos I see all of my friends on social media using as their profile photos. Will it work out? Perhaps not but, with two sets of twins, the fun never ends and someone around here is bound to be laughing. Oh well, there’s always next year!
