The usual quips from my twitter feed with random photos uploaded from my camera that have nothing to do with the accompanying text. My quick takes are so boring and predictable.
There is a moment that happens almost every morning while I’m eating my breakfast when a toddler climbs into my lap and demands I sing him “The Wheels on the Bus”. What? I’m not done with my oatmeal? That’s ok, mom, I don’t mind. You can still sing to me.
According to Bella one of the sheep in the Nativity is called “Poop”. Isn’t that nice?
Also there’s a lobster in a yellow slicker swimming around with the sheep.
The other day when I went to get Sophie up from her nap, I found her sprawled on the floor next to the bed her knee on the song book.
Ben is holding little rosary booklet and is singing: “Aaaayuuuyaaa… aaaayuuuyaaaa… aaaayuuuyaaa…” (Translation: “Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia!”) He’s just like his sisters.
Ben climbs on Bella as she sleeps on the couch. How irresistible a sleeping sister is!
Sophie, playing with the Nativity: “Here’s St Jophas, here’s the shepherd, and here’s Mary. They’re all looking at their friends on Facebook.”
Trying to get a portrait of all three children. This was my favorite of the lot. As usual Bella forgot she was supposed to be sitting still.
“I was pretending to be a baby in a mommy’s belly,” Bella told me the other morning. She was on the couch with no clothes on, covered with a quilt.
I never did get around to posting this picture of my autumn centerpiece, a vase filled with acorns, pine cones, and honeylocust seed pods. I was rather proud of the way this looked.
This morning Bella is insisting that the salt she is licking from the top of the salt shaker (ew!) tastes sweet.
Ben singing into the microphone.
Ben has picked up the singing habit from his sisters. He loves grabbing the microphone and belting out a song. Unfortunately, it’s very hard to catch on camera because as soon as he sees the camera he comes running.
And that’s all I’ve got for this week. Be sure to go visit lovely Jennifer F for more quick takes.
