For once in my life, I had my camera with me and planned on posing the girls for some sweet pics in the garden. They, on the other hand, had other ideas. Every time I got the perfect shot lined up, they took off running. As a result, I got a lot of pics of the backs of their heads and bodies.
When we got home, I uploaded our pics to Facebook with a toddler on each knee, and let them describe what was going on the photo. Instead of my boring commentary, I used the girls' words for the captions. Here are some of my favorites:
Snugglebug: Look! I silly, climbin' on a rock!
Curlytop: Snugglebug wearin' shoes, Mommy!
Snugglebug: I go on there, Curlytop. I go, one, two, three... I go on there!
Curlytop: A biddge [bridge]!
Snugglebug: I's running!
Curlytop: Is a car! It not Mommy's car...
Me: A car? Is that what you see?
Curlytop: Yes, Mommy. A car. It not you car, okay?
Curlytop: A yock [rock]. Is a big yock. A real big yock.
Curlytop: Heeeheeheehehah! Look, Mommy! Boots [pointing to Facebook ad for Uggs in sidebar]!
Curlytop: I lookin' at songun [something] on the ground...
Today, we woke up to this:
What a difference a week makes.
This Monday, I'm grateful for:
- The warm weather that allowed us to play comfortably in the fresh air last week
- The snow we have this week, which is essential for our agriculture
- Friends and family
