Greatest Hits

Time once again to update the blog with some fantastic and dazzling pictures of my kiddos. (p.s. bonus points to the people who can name the books I referenced with my kids pseudonyms...)

Princess Elizabeth: Sophia has turned 1 and is as strong-willed and independent as ever. But she's not afraid to use her feminine wiles to get what she wants. Watch out, world!

P1030023                 Reorganizing the music in the piano bench.


All gussied up for church.


Accomplice. That's two boxes of Fruity Pebbles (I use them in Rice Krispie treats, not for regular morning breakfast!) on the floor behind her. The kids managed to get it over about 1000 square feet of my house. And my vacuum bit the dust two days before this incident. And I was just about to make dinner.


I put her hair in a mohawk in the tubbie and it stayed for a long time. And was insanely cute.

Birthday cake. Mmmmmmmm...


Heartbreaker. Dream maker. Love taker. Don't you mess around with her.

P1030132 P1030128

Park mastermind.


Max: Oh boy. Miles is two. Lucky for me he's a kid that's FULL of life and spirit and he's happy a large majority of the time. But a couple times a week he likes to put me in my place and remind me just who is in charge around here. Additionally, Miles is taking up the Super Hero mantle with amazing finesse and grace. It's quite a burden for a young kid but he's bearing up quite well. Now if he could just decide if he's going to use his powers for good or evil...

P1030053 Miles put so much mascara on his head/body that when I washed him up it left a black ring around the tub. Of course! One more thing to clean:)

P1030074 The newest superhero accessory.

P1030085 Miles just being...Miles.

P1030061 P1030062 Chrysta, it looks like our kids/husbands have similar napping strategies.


Dash and Spidey all in one cute package!

P1030119 P1030139

The Energizer tantrum. It kept going, and going and going...


Alexander: Cameron. Cam, Cam, Cam. Poor kid is going through a bit of a rough patch. His big deal right now is that life isn't fair. Most of the day he's happy to play, run around outside and color. He LOVES learning to write and draw. Coloring inside the lines is a big thing around here these days. It's very impressive. But when you've been done wrong, you've been done wrong. And Cameron wants to let you know just how unfair his life really is.

P1030055 P1030058

After watching Kung Fu Panda (which features Master Tigress), Cameron disappeared into his room and came out COVERED in stripes. He even managed to get one on his back.

P1030078 Pulling faces.

P1030093 Fruity Cheerios. Now THAT'S a breakfast food I can get behind.

P1030123 Keepin' it real.


(all together now) AWWWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sara said...

You officially have the cutest kids ever. I can't get over Sophie's eyes. Ya'll are in BIG trouble when she starts batting those at the boys. And Cam looks so tall in the park photo...when did that happen? Why aren't you in PA right NOW?!?

Steph B said...

Love the pictures! No wonder you are so skinny chasing those cute kids around (0: Oh, and I've missed you!

Chris, Sarah, Maddie, and Jax said...

AWWWW! You know the more I read your blog the more I think Maddie and Miles should be better friends. Madison wears a lipstick "mustache" to playgroup almost every week and she can throw a tantrum like the best of them (for hours and hours and hours). But Sophie, I must say, that girl was worth waiting for. She is a cutie!

Pooh said...

They all look so grown up! Good thing I get to see them in less than two weeks. That doesn't give them much time to re-morph between now and then...

Ben & Diane said...

Eediculously cute kids. It's really not fair!

CC said...

Such cuties! Mascara's a multi-tasker, and in the hands of children, endless supply of liquid ink! ;)
