Is There No End To The Man's Talent?

I offer these pictures to you as proof that there is not! Add "fruit-sculpturist" to the list of things that Kris Rives is good at!

We had a shower for Kathy last weekend and, as usual, I decide to do something that would require more skill and patience than I currently possess. So, as usual, Kris offered to step in and make it happen. We make a great team.

He even hand-crafted the wheels for the canteloupe carriage when the way that the instructions said to do it did not work out. I'm telling you, if this whole music/sound/p.e. teacher thing dries up, he could have a bright future at Edible Arrangements.

This is me doing my, "Whatever-You-think-you're-all-awesome-with-your-melon-baller-skills-Don't-forget-I'm-the-one-that-came-up-with-this-idea" face.

Oh, I'm only kidding. I'm glad one of us has a marketable skill to fall back on.

Here is the finished product at the shower. He really did do a good job--I just have to make snarky comments because that's just what I do.

And don't think for a second that the fruit fairy came and arranged those grapes and strawberries on that platter. That was all me, baby.

Kris, I am honored that you would display this particular talent for *my* shower. I can attest to the beauty and wonder of the fruit aforementioned fruit sculpture.

In truth, I know it was a team effort, so thanks again for making such a fabulous and tasty piece of art!

i think you might have embellished the "awesomeness" of the finished product. You, my dear wife, are the one that draws out these hidden talents with your "honey do" lists. You are the one that challenges me to do things i have never before done. You are the one that goes to baby showers and volunteers to bring things like fruit. I do believe that I would be less than half the man that i am today apart from you. I love you.
