Fun Pictures

These last few weeks I’ve taken some 800 pictures of everything there is to take pictures of so I have decided to share some of them with you guys on the blog. I picked a few pictures for each person so enjoy! Love you! IMG_4970IMG_4429 IMG_4968 IMG_4421 IMG_4346IMG_4324 IMG_4281 IMG_4314

Rain, Rain, Rain

Rain, Rain, Rain

We love to go out when it’s raining and play. We’ll make umbrella tents and dare each other to run out and touch the mailbox, splash in the gutter three times and come back. Its so much fun! We also get drenched. I stay inside and read most rainy days but sometimes I’ll come out and splash. Lydia made up a rain song and it gets pretty funny. “Rain rain come and stay never ever go away, but if you dare to ruin my hair I’ll pull down your underwear, but dIMG_20140922_163509ear rain I’ll forgive you if you don’t give me the flu! And I forgot the last verse but I’ll try to remember for you.” This is what she told me after she sang it for me.IMG_20140922_163122

Fall pictures of the kids

Here are some pictures Rachel took of the children the other day on our front porch. One of our neighbors gave George (and the girls) a Halloween shirt for his birthday. Remember that Clara is now in school all day. They are getting so big.

Muddy afternoon in the back yard

Yesterday afternoon we went outside to play. Rachel, Clara and I played catch with the football and then the volleyball. George and Lydia turned on the hose and painted a sign on the fence. Lydia told me the sign said “We love dirt”.

I also include some pictures of Clara’s hair cut. She wanted it really short, but this is as far as Rachel would go (probably because I love the girl’s long hair).

On the first day of Christmas…
