Let's see how many of my 30 for 30 I can get through this time.
|Carissa and Cliff surprised us in a fabulous way by coming over and hanging out Friday afternoon! Here's T thinking something akin to "Cliff? In my car? What's wrong with this picture?!" We all know sharing is not yet T's forte.|
|Tamsie picked out this dress to wear to church on Sunday. Here she's modeling a pretty hair clip from JJ.|
|And here's E and her hair clip from JJ. We had to do a selfie -- it was the only way to get her to look at the camera!|
|Making elephant noises while listening to Daddy read|
|Riding around the house on a dark and stormy morning|
|Cookie-and-story time with Amma|
|The girls have been getting along MUCH better this week, which is a direct answer to prayer! There has been much sharing, and I think they're slowly learning to put Sissy's interests first. I'm enjoying it while it lasts!|
|Leave them alone with Amma for any length of time, and don' t be surprised if they wind up rocking pirate hats when you return.|
|This is what happens when you ask them to smile: E ignores you, and T does this number.|
|Here's E's smile later that afternoon. Lately one will nap longer than the other, so I'll get in extra one-on-one time with whoever's up first. This time it was E.|
20. Forgive, just as you have been forgiven.
|Can you guess E's favorite color? ;)|
|This is their favorite food right now. All of this was consumed in one sitting, and they could have taken down even more, but I had to put a stop to it so we could incorporate a different food group into snack time.|
22. Anything worth having costs something. And I'm not just talking about material things!
|Today they wanted their cottage cheese in bowls. T couldn't get it in her mouth fast enough with the spoon, so she set it aside and went bananas raking it in with her hands.|
|E, however, prefers to be a little lady at times like this.|
24. Be the person God made you to be, and accept whatever gifts He has given you with gratitude. Then try to find a way to bless others with them. Give them away to others, and give them back to Him. Be you! It's totally OK to be goofy and quirky if that's how He made you, and that's certainly how He's made me -- so I've learned to embrace it! :) The only thing that's not OK is not being the you He made you to be.
BTW, there are so many times when I read back over something I have written on this blog and think "that is so goofy! ARGH!" but really that's who I am, so I'm just putting it out there anyway!
|E likes to fall asleep with her finger inside her paci. Speaking of, thinking of breaking their paci habits is enough to scare me into hysterics.|
25. Never overestimate the importance of a good quality mom and dad.
Whew! That's all I can handle today. Next time should be the last five! :)
