14 Month Pictures

Ben is definitely a 4th child. I was determined to get some pictures made in a studio, but the best I could manage was a local department store. I wanted a few in his Baptism outfit and a few in an outfit Judy had made Wade when he was little. I did manage to get some pictures, but my standards are just too high. Here they are – after I tweaked them some.

Church Christmas Pageant

I’m not sure I would always make the same decisions as our children’s minister at our church – but I definitely wouldn’t want her job! The kids practice the Christmas pageant once – the day before. Most of the costumes the older kids wear are their choice (notice the Christmas butterfly). Regardless it’s adorable and for the most part seems to go off without too much trouble. I do seem to have a knack for photographing my kids’ shining moments – notice yawns and monkey faces.

Breakfast With Santa

Every year our church holds an annual breakfast with Santa. We love to attend with all the chaos, crafts, and pictures. (You’ll notice Alex isn’t in many of the pictures. He has found a great group of friends at church and tends to disappear the minute we enter the doors. We see him when it’s time to leave again.)

Found!

If you read my other blog (the kids’ daily blogs) then you will notice that Ben does have both of his shoes. I finally found the missing shoe. I found it in the box of canned corn – in my pantry. Of course – why didn’t I look there first?!! I’m definitely going to say Ben put the shoe there and it’s a miracle I found it anytime soon. I positioned the shoe to show for a picture. It was definitely not this obvious when I found it or it wouldn’t have been missing for so many days…

Harder To Hide

It’s a good thing I love this cute girl so much. Kaitlyn’s first self-haircut was on the side where she wears her bow. It was also rather intermittent so overall not bad and easy to hide. This last haircut is on the opposite side of her hair and fairly straight across. This one is going to take a while to grow out and can’t be hidden by a bow…

Slowly Going Crazy

My kids have more than a single pair of shoes, but let’s be honest. They all have that pair that we keep at the back door and they wear 99% of the time. Well for the past two days, Ben has only had a single shoe at the back door. I’m still not sure if he hid it or if Pepper took it. I’m mostly sure it didn’t fall off somewhere outside. I’ve looked everywhere I can think to look, but I really don’t want to buy him a new pair of shoes! The question is how long do I keep holding out hope?

Home Haircuts

It appears Kaitlyn and I need to have that talk about home haircuts – again. I opened my makeup drawer to this…

What the heck!?!? I did threaten to cut her hair as short as Alex’s if I find her cutting her own hair again. She looked pretty scared by that. I have no idea when she is doing this or how to teach her this is something we don’t do. I have now moved every pair of scissors I can find to a hidden location.

Christmas Books And Christmas Pajamas

I love the mornings when we get the big boys on the bus and the two littles and I have nothing pressing. Today we read Christmas books and stayed in our pajamas most of the morning.
