Archive photos

I was searching for some different seasonal pictures of our home to put on our For Sale flyer, and I stopped to take a look at these old pictures. These were taken by our front door when Keith was heading out to work. This was back before we got brave and added some color to our gigantic livingroom. Daniel's cheeks are so fun. They still flop around when he is running. Watching him play in the snow today, the side profile of his face still looks so baby-ish, but his actions are that of a big boy.
Megan with her hair a mess, as usual.




In this one, Keith came up behind Joshua and picked him up really quick. Joshua is giving a startled, "cheese".
The top one is my favorite, but I feel guilty when I don't post pictures off all three, lest someone think I have a favorite child. Truth be told, my favorite is whoever is making the least amount of noise at the moment...but then I know that means they are doing something that's going to get them into trouble.
We played outside again for an hour or so. We went out onto the frozen lake and I pulled the kids around in the sled. Then we made snow angels and came in for hot chocolate. Meow-meow managed to sneak past one of the kids and got out into the back yard. This made for a cold and wet cat. She decided to seek shelter from the snow by going under the deck, which then made for a muddy cat. And just for the record, there really isn't anything fun about giving a fully clawed cat a bath.

Awww. memories. So precious! We went to the smooth movers workshop today, good stuff I'm sure you'll enjoy it. I love the snow! I wonder when it's going to rain... I don't envy you having to bathe the cat, ouch!

I love to look back on old photos and remember the times...life passes so quickly (except on days when your husband is gone for more than 12 hours and the kids are all crying)and things change so often. It is nice to look back and just remember...

Bathing a cat, fun stuff! The kids are all getting so big. And they are just too smart too.

As anti-AK as I've been for the past few months during negotiations with Brian over orders, you're really making me reconsider my stubbornness. :) I know that not all days are snow angels and hot chocolate, but the days that are must certainly make it worth it. I love your photos, DH and the kids look terrific. :D
