Sink Bathtime

Man, oh, man.  It's so much easier doing it in the sink (with a little washcloth under their bummies to prevent too much slipping around).  And having Daddy around as a second pair of hands sure helped!

aaaand it feels so good!  My camera and I are back together.

Got my new lens.  I am in love!  I have had no spare time to spend with it but I cannot wait!

I am totally embarrassed to say that it was not the reason for my camera not metering correctly.  Some how the flash exposure setting was all the way up.  No idea how that happened but happy I figured it out all by myself!  Also irritated all these months I have spent taking crappy pictures and missing special moments.

I am short on time.  The girls had their surgery on Wednesday.  They are doing so well!  Madeleine is having a harder time than her Noelle, but still better than expected.  Will get pics of my phone and update separately. 

Meanwhile, here are a few pics I snapped in the car while we all waited for Daddy to run an errand this afternoon.

I had to include this picture because I never want to forget something about it. 
See that crease on the right, between his nose and top lip? 
 He always gets that while nursing.♥
Big Sis ♥
She must make this face at least 10 times/day.♥

Sabbath Joke

The girls are hilarious these days.  To their Mother anyway...

On the way to church this morning:

N:  Hey Boppie, you wanna hear a joke?

M:  Sure!

N:  Since it's Sunday I will tell you a Jesus joke.  OK?!

M:  OK!

N:  Why didn't Jesus want to die?

M:  Why?

N:  Because He wanted to live!

What's going on around here, you ask? A lot more of the same 'ol stuff. And not a lot of pictures to show for it.  Back and forth to school, meals, naps, dishes, laundry, church, diapers, you know!

My new lens is STILL back ordered. Madeleine got ahold of my camera and broke my other lens for real. Now it will be spending the next few weeks in the shop.  Such a bummer.

The babies were picked to be extras for a TV show.  That kept us super busy for several weeks, but nothing for the last couple, so things have slowed down.  It was fun but the waiting takes over your life!

Spring break starts Monday. YEA!

Big girls are getting their tonsils out Wednesday. BOO!
Yep, both on the same day. Ripping that band-aid right off

These babies turned 6 months old. 
I cannot get enough of that baby boys smile.
He flashes it at EVERYONE he meets.
And Courtney...I love your stunned look.

This picture is so typical of our house. 
The girls cannot leave these babies alone.
And somehow a flashlight got involved.

The love to make a big deal out of all the holidays.
Aren't these Valentines just awesome?!

 We started the morning with red heart shaped pancakes.

Candy sent from Grandma.

And a great outfit for school!

Heart shaped pizza for dinner.

And we dipped strawberries ourselves!

Couldn't you just cover her in kisses and nibble those precious feet?

Watch out Bon Jovi!

This stinker somehow kicked herself out of her jammies.

I ran over to a friends house to snap a few 7 month old pictures.
Oh, we just love them both so much!   

More better blogging to come!
