The Five of Us, Spring 2014

Happy Together

Of course, not all of our life is as idyllic as the following photos, but it sure is fun to catch the girlie and boy-o enjoying each other. This morning they were sitting side-by-side on the kiddie bench Aaron made, each of them holding a baby doll. It was so cute, so I started flashing away. Which is your favorite? I'll use the most popular shot in my sidebar, so please, please vote! (You know how to vote, right? Leave a comment!)

I think you should crop "C" and "E" together - I love pictures of people looking over their back. If you combined these two you'd have good face shots of both kids. Otherwise - I agree - it's gotta be "B".

Pea looks so cute with her hair in knots, it looks like alot of work though. I like the first picture of Pea she looks so serene and I like the second one of both of them! They look like they have alot of fun together.

Talk To Me

I blog for myself and my kids and I would do it even if no one else cared, but I do like to hear from you (and think it's a wee bit creepy of you to voyeurize us without my knowing it). So, please leave a comment from time to time, or email me anytime at Much obliged, I'm sure.
