A few of my favorite people and a peek into us

I don't know if we'll ever have another "normal" picture of the kids. I keep trying...but bless their everloving heart...I don't think they have it in them. That's okay though, because I gave up on the "perfect" picture a long time ago. I think it happened in 2001, right after Isabelle the Mae was born. Up until that point we had done fairly well at getting both kids to look in the same direction at the same time and even occasionally captured both smiling as well. After The Mae was born, that all changed. Every -- EVERY picture of the three of them (or the Mae, for that matter) for the next 18 months had at least one child screaming. It was usally the same child. :)

Anyway, I have grown used to the oddball pictures. They've become my favorite. Speaking of favorite...here are a few recent ones on the day we tried to get a new picture for daddy to take to his new job. Click for a better look!

The many faces of funny

Just try to look natural...
Hmmm, not quite what I was looking for...
This is definitely more natural, but...

Seriously - just one shot of your eyes looking this way? Okay. We'll take this one.

New Duds

Riley got new duds! Whipped this up yesterday from fabric I forgot I had. She loves it!

Something about orange, pink, and red...it's very "her!"
