Winter Swimming

Just a little excited.

Yep, still excited.

The end.

Finger Painting

A rainbow of colors

A large canvas

Look at that little foot in the air!

Not on the walls, please, Lera!  That girl does not stand still or stay on any one project for too long.  Plus, her feet started slipping around and she wanted her hands cleaned off.  Oh well, she painted for a few minutes anyway.

Time to hose them down

They enjoyed "swimming" in the tub more than painting, actually.  They "swam" till the water got cold.

Mall Day

We took advantage of a rainy Saturday and went to the mall to do all the fun stuff with the kids.

Playing with the trains in the book store.

Waiting to be hooked up (she was just barely over the weight requirement at 32 lbs).

So excited to jump on the trampoline.

Getting the hang of it.


Don't quite know the reason for the protective eye wear, but it looked pretty cute!

Chess got pretty high.

50 cent ride

I'm pretty sure they got off before the ride was over.  These are not very exciting after jumping on a bungee trampoline.


We finished the day of mall fun by eating Chickfila.

The end.

These Two

Look at these two girls.  I sneaked (snuck is not a word, in case you were wondering) up on them to try and take their picture while they were looking so cute watching a show together, but obviously, they caught me.  The looks on their faces make me laugh.  I love the way their heads are tilted together and they are sitting so close.  They really love each other.

At any given moment in a day they could be sitting peacefully like this, playing and laughing together, or they could be crying and getting upset at each other.  The relationship is full of ups and downs. All. Day. Long.  But, they are getting sweeter with each other (overall) as they get older.

I love these peaceful moments.
