Almost Famous

We signed Drew and Ella up with a couple of modeling agencies a few months ago. We figured "Hey they're cute, they're twins, we live in the city - Why not?" So, ,we have gone on a few auditions. Huggies turned us down. A stock photo job passed us up (although we had a brief exciting moment when the photographer asked us if we wanted to take a job as a family - long story, but didn't work out). We had all but given up when we got a call about being in a book about twins. They booked us. I had to call "wardrobe" and was instructed on how to dress them. Just onezies, but still exciting.

So we arrive at the job. 1st surprise was that the photographer, Michelle, was actually a man! Then the art director showed me the layout of what they were shooting. It was the cover of a Harlequin Romance Novel!! Now, I have seen these many times before - Auntie Eva was an avid reader- but usually they featured Fabio or a kissing couple on the front! I was shocked! My cute little innocent babies on the cover of a romance novel! Well, heck it is $200 in the college fund (read: groceries) and some kind of fame. How many people do you know can say they were on the cover of a book? So, here is the pic that they will use. I will let you all know when it is printed. Thanks to modern technology, Drew has Ella's hair (or lack thereof) in the pic!
