031/365 snow bunnies

daney and little charlie bug. 5 weeks apart. probably 5 pounds apart, and best buds.

dane didn't know what to make of this white, dry, cold stuff so i plopped him in the sled. his cousin wasn't about to make him sit alone.

love these two.

030/365 more alike

these three girls are more alike then i thought. all have their own individual personalities, quarks, and demons, but all have the most tender hearts at the same time. at 2, 4, and 6 this little ladies were for sure molded from the same clay.

it's become a regular occurrence.

i go to get the kids up from their naps and i find emmy with her pillow and blankets in dane's crib. he is normally covered in numerous stuffed animals, books, cars, his train set... if it's in the room, it's in his crib.

he doesn't seem to mind. and neither do i.

003/365 all dressed down


Sundays for my 365 project are supposed to be "all dressed up" day. Taking a picture of the kids every Sunday in their church clothes. Landing in the ER on the third day of the year is not looking promising. I just wish this little guy would get better. Photo taken with my iPhone.. And not processed since I am still sitting here watching him get poked with more needles.
