...Char was sleeping so peacefully Monday morning that I didn't want to wake her up. ...she made me a pretty picture at school with chalk. ...she continued her obsession with the easel and colored (and watched Toy Story ) while waiting for Daddy to get home from work. Hooray for panties! ...it got cold and windy again, but we played outside anyways. Isaac played catch with the neighbor boys, while JJ flew the kite and Char strutted her stuff. ...the girls danced around the living room. There is an iTunes Radio station called 'Frozen Radio' that the girls are crazy about. They play random Disney songs, and we listen to it all.the.time. (After watching this a few times, I realized that Char was trying to sing "friend in" as in "You've Got a Friend In Me".) ...Grace put Charley to bed by tickling her face. ...the girls got cake pops. Yep, for breakfast. ...we got to school a few minute
When my sister, Andrea, told me that she was coming to town in March, I knew I wanted to have her take our last set of maternity pictures. She has always been a good photographer, but she has been spending lots of time working on her skills the past few years as well as getting tons more experience. I'm so proud of how good she has gotten, and it still amazes me that she is able to get some of the shots that she does. We went to the Wetlands on a Sunday evening. It was Daylight Savings Time, so we got there an hour earlier that our planned sunset session. Clouds just happened to roll in that afternoon, so the lighting was perfect anyways. What wasn't perfect? My kids. Grace had gone to a birthday party sleepover the night before where, apparently, she didn't get much sleep. We also had brunch with Isaac's mom that morning, so she wasn't able to nap, and girlfriend was SO cranky. Going through the pictures, it was hard to find one with her smiling. Charley,
Picture of the Week: The Sleepiest Kid Ever When I pick Perry up in the afternoons, we have to wait for about twenty minutes before Grace and Char get back from school. I actually kind of love it, because it gives me a chance to hang in Perry's classroom when they are doing afternoon crafts. Monday, they made barns out of chocolate graham crackers and marshmallow fluff. Perry's favorite part was eating it, and she shared with her sisters in the car as we drove home. We made salads for dinner, and she kept begging Daddy for bites. He decided it was easier to just share the whole bowl with her. Perry is definitely our best eater of the bunch and loves pretty much everything you give her, including most veggies. She was being super silly in the bath, so I gave her a mohawk to go with her sass. While I was combing her hair, she found the tweezers on the counter, and kept calling them "teezwers". It was adorable, so I had to get a video.
