Time for New Pictures

We had a great day today! We spent some time at the FD Open House, went to the park/lake, and earlier this week we spent some time outside. I thought the colors were so great here, but my pictures don't do us justice (although I've never claimed to be any kind of "real" photographer!). Clearly we're not in peak season yet. We're throughly enjoying these last days outside before it's COLD. (NOTE: You will hear me complain about winter. I vow to try to find the silver lining all winter long, but January is very long. I'll do my best!)

Brothers. My three are ALL BOY. They love running, playing ball, throwing rocks in lakes, etc. I'm going to have to learn to hit a ball, because eventually they're going to have to learn to catch. So far, I'm a much better pitcher.

At the lake...

At the fire department open house. I think this is Matty's first time doing this. (Thanks to Kailey for the cool shirt; lots of people asked me where we got it! He insisted on wearing it today...it's a little big, but I thought it was so cute!)

Jack-Jack. I know I gush, so I'll refrain...

This skeptical look is so typical of Jack. For those of you who don't know the story, he was born 10 lbs and 10 oz. Long story short, my blood pressure dipped (40/60 or some crazy number) as did his, so they yanked him out. My OB told me that she heard his right arm snap. He had brachial plexis injury in the other arm, so for the first month of his life he couldn't move either arm. I contend that he's still kind of mad about it. He's skeptical of most people, although it's gotten better. For the first six months, he scowled at strangers. Once he trusts people though, he's my greatest lover. He loves to hug and touch and be held. I just love this look on his face.

These two get along really well most of the time. Matty's hit an age where he's kind of a pain, and Cole loses patience with him. All normal stuff, but this is a good picture of "normal" at our house...

Cute pictures! I love how you caught some rainbows in the FD pictures. Very nice. Thought you weren't much of a photographer?

Oh, I'm not. If it looks cool, it's purely accident ;)
