See how the cat's ears are bent back? Ramses is not a happy cat, but he certainly isn't giving way to a two year old. He should because if he does anything to upset the two year old he gets in big trouble.
Bentley is our early bird. He gets up early and gets a lot of his schoolwork done before his siblings come downstairs. He likes to be in control of his time. It makes him happy!
Evan is sitting in the ottoman where the train set is stored. Maybe it's easier for him to reach the pieces this way? It seems like more work to me.
Viva made paper towel and duct tape shoes. I'm not sure why. I 'm pretty sure they weren't a success. She only made the one pair.
Do you remember these--Chinese finger traps? Jake got his fingers stuck.
Lincoln just used them for ornamentation.
Here is our bimonthly proof of life photo. Great-grandma is still doing well!
This is what a photo shoot at our home looks like. Opa takes the photos. Kara or I oversee the shoot. The children usually cooperate, but sometimes they don't.
We bought some apriums at Costco. Viva really like them. She liked their velvety exterior and their juicy interior.
Lincoln told me one day that he had always wanted to ride in the fancy carts, so I obliged. Can you see the pink one on the right edge of the photo? We found that one in the parking lot, but when the boys saw this one, they said they preferred it.
Kara and I took all five children to a Cub Scout carnival. Evan loved the hot dogs. I had to hold on to the bun to keep it from crumbling into pieces because he was holding it so tightly.
