Saturday Photo Hunt: Blue

click the photo hunt button for more info

This is a photo standing at the northeast corner of the St. Louis Arch with a Blue Sky as the background. I love this photo for many reasons, the angle, the contrast and the way that you can't even see the numerous windows that are at the top of the arch where people were looking down at us. Thanks for visiting!

Saturday Photo Hunt :YOUTH

This is my daughter and my mother in the hospital the day after she was born. To me, there isn't anything that says youth like a newborn in her grandma's arms.

My youngest bloglet is very independent. She has three olders who make her want to be able to do things that are not quite normal for a three year old. Things like cooking, laundry (not folding, but actually washing) driving and such. She is irritated by the words "when you get bigger" and "when you are a little older". She has worked her way into getting them to let her help do dishes and put clothes in the dryer and even TRIED to convince me that she is big enough to drive. So when it comes to getting dressed, this is something that she does not like help doing. But, and this is an exception, she has had one shirt that has alluded her buttoning and snapping skills. She often gets mad before she admits it and lets me help her. She has yelled at her shirt, thrown her shirt and cried. WHY WON'T THIS SHIRT BUTTON? I have explained that the button holes are kinda small and the buttons are kinda big, which makes it a tough one to button, but that has never satisfied her. She always chooses the shirt and then struggles with the buttons....Until this week. This week she decided that the shirt was "going down". {yep, those were her words...Learned from brother bloglet} So she pushed, she pulled, she would take a break and start again....And Finally:

SHE DID IT. SHE WON. SHE CAME. SHE SAW. SHE BUTTONED. That one button brought her so much satisfaction that she wanted me to take a picture to show that she finally did it! So Congratulations...You've got the competition ALL BUTTONED UP!

Saturday Photo Hunt: Funny

This is one of Christi as she watched the toilet water swirl and swirl and swirl....She probably sat there about 20 minutes....

- This is my son playing dress up with his sister....Oh boy...he said he was doing his "giggly girly laugh"

This is my oldest posing for a pic for the yearbook....

This picture is of my two oldest bloglets sharing my jacket at the drive-in...They thought they were so funny each putting an arm in the jacket.

It's a boy!

There are certain sentences that I have said only in relation my son...
  • Ummm, sorry, my son thinks he's a dinosaur
  • Could you please stop making that buzzing noise?
  • No, you can't have a frog in your room
  • No, you cannot have a straw to drink the syrup
  • Please stop snorting!
  • Quit using your sister's Barbie head for a soccer ball
  • Use your words not growling
  • No...Blue shoes, black socks and brown pants DO NOT match.

And this is just in the first seven years of life....I'll keep you updated. :)
