Playing Around

We've had some fun moments lately with the girls and we've seen them all really develop some personality. Here are a few great photos that we've taken in the midst of just "playing around."

Here is Mark with Natalie and Elyssa. Wouldn't you just love to have Natalie's eye color? Elyssa was obsessed with putting a quarter over her eye. We don't know why, but you just go with it, right?

Another wonderful photo of Natalie was taken one morning as she was about to eat some Fruit Loops!

Here is Mark's mom, Mary Hazel, with Victoria. I told Mom that I liked her new outfit. She looked really pretty in it!

Elyssa and Victoria definitely look like sisters with their dark hair and pretty eyebrows.

Awe! Elyssa gave Victoria such a sweet kiss!

Finally, I have to share a photo and some funny video that makes me laugh out loud each time I view it. I had some Doritos last night and Elyssa and Natalie invaded my plate. They ate more of my chips than I did (which, in the end ... was probably good for me!)! At least Elyssa had a "clean nose" in this photo! Okay, why does Elyssa remind me of my sister, Shana? I guess because Shana use to make such crazy faces in photos when we were growing up!

In this video, Elyssa got mad that Natalie stole her chip. Elyssa is really starting to develop a "country" accent. Listen to her say "chip."

My how a little time can bring so much change. I lost my access for the past few weeks and just caught up. It seems like little Natalie and Victoria have grown so much...and Elyssa is lil' Ms. Entertainer as always.

P.S. Glad to know I'm not the only one suffering the signs of aging. I was just complaining today about all the lovely things that come with age: achy joints, crows feet, you name it! You're not alone. :)

Humm, I never knew chip was a two syllable word. Ha!

Love the picture of them with Mark! You should crop that picture of Natalie and make one of her own! She looks so precious in that photo. I think that maybe Elyssa wants to be a pirate with that quarter on her eye!

I can't wait to hear what Natalie's gonna say back to Elyssa one day when she tattles!

How many syllables are in chip???? "CHEEYUP" like the coles said! were they in time out? on the time out bench? :) Mike said Natalie just took over the whole scene.....took the chip and the bench over (with her leg)!!!!

Heather, that is totally you! You might've even said that to me personally one morning over breakfast at The Bogg! That is awesomely hilarious!!! LOL

I want to know why they were having a snack on the "time-out" bench!?? It didn't look as if "time-out" at your house is very unpleasant! In fact, Natalie looked quite comfortable there. (Does that mean something?:)
