Family Pictures

So, I really have been trying to get even a snapshot of our family in this stage that I could post but we can't seem to get an acceptable one. And, I bet it just gets harder the more children you have. So here I have a picture of each of us on the same day. Almost just as good, right?



Here's Nora-cha-cha, eating one of her favorites, pesto. She is just so cute and squishy. In nursery there is a little boy named Rorie that thinks so too. Whenever it's time for the lesson and they all have to sit down, he always sits on her, because he loves her. Then the teacher says everyone hold hands, like stand in a circle and hold hands and he just holds her hands, both of them. So sweet.

Here's Naomi-cakes, she is always making us smile. She really is sweet and tries to keep the peace in our home. I'm sometimes surprised at both her and Nadine and how selfless they can be for three year olds, we have totally been blessed with good children. Naomi is like her dad in a lot of ways, specifically, she's definitley a night owl and is the last to fall asleep of the girls and maybe even of everyone sometimes. And she can sleep later than anyone.
Here's Nadine-bean (a.k.a. Cinderella, Mary Poppins, Snow White or any Disney princess, Dora, etc.) This little girl is pretty creative and usually is the ring leader out of the three. For the past month and probably more she has been a bit obsessed about her swimming suits and spends so much of the day transferring them from her backpack to an ice cream bucket to the couch then to a grocery bag and on and on. Then she'll ask me, "What should I do with my swimsuits now?" She's a little fireball!
Here's Klabey, Dad, Prince Eric, the witch, the beast, and so much more. What a babe! Nadine and Naomi already know that he is the one they are going to marry. Klave has been working hard on our yard and investigating the stock market so we can retire rich, plus his real job and calling and just keeping us all happy. He is so good at it too!
Ok, I guess since I am a part of the family I should also make an appearance on the blog for history sake at least. This is Amanda, 38 weeks pregnant. This has really been a great pregnancy but the last few weeks have become pretty torturous. If any of you have experienced restless leg syndrome you know the kind of distress, agony, torment etc. that I have been going through. But alas just a day more. Unless something happens before then, I'll be induced on wednesday, that's April 2. Yahoo!
