Biker girl (with brother's help)

Cameron got to ride his motorcycle for the first time after whining all week about not getting to ride it because of the rain.  He was thrilled.  And then he made Livvy even more thrilled than him by letting her go for a ride with him.  He is like hot and cold with his relationship with Liv.  Either he is the sweetest or the meanest.  This afternoon he was being the sweetest.  I love when he is the sweetest, and so does Liv.  

I love these pictures of my two middle babies!  And I love these two middle babies, too.

Girl talk

Before Leesie's nap I sat in front of her with the camera and asked her questions.  Then while she answered I snapped away.  She is such a doll and a stinker and a cutie and a mess and the funnest and the best.  Her little personality is so big and so cute.  And she's mostly a happy happy camper.  Except for when she's not.  And then you better watch out.  Her big cheesy grins are THE BEST!

It feels like just yesterday I was taking pictures of the girls playing in their room when Leesie was just a few months old and Olivia was almost three.  And now here they are again playing.  And Leesie is big enough to actually play and kind of follow all of Olivia's rules, haha.  I love these sweet sisters!!

3 Randoms pictures

These three random pictures are from the other day when I got out the bubble machine and let the kids play in the bubbles.  And I was going to take pictures of them playing, but then this random neighbor boy came over.  And I didn't want him in my pictures.  So I just didn't take any.  But then he went off to play with the kids on the trampoline and I snapped these of Leesie.

I'm like a mean old grump neighbor, but I don't like having neighborhood kids come over.  And they mostly come over because my kids aren't allowed to leave the yard.  And these kids just roam the streets looking for yards to play in.  And ours is one of them.  I'll be glad when we move and have no neighbors. 

I'm pretty grinchy.

Also I don't write on my blogs nearly as much as I used to.  I think it's because I give little highlights of our daily life on instagram, and then they get printed out with my chatbook.  And then I don't want to rewrite what I wrote there, onto here.  But oh well.

I will rewrite about the fact that we threw all of Leesie's passi's away.  They all had holes in them and were ripping and I really had no choice but to toss them.  And then I thought, well, I can either go to the store and by brand new pacifiers for my almost two and a half year old, or I can just cut her off cold turkey.  So we cut her off.  And it hasn't been too bad.  It's a little harder to get her to settle down and take a nap, but she still sleeps pretty easily at bedtime.  Sometimes she wakes up really really early in the morning crying.  But she did that even when she had her passi, and she just couldn't find it.  

Also I'm looking forward to putting the kids to bed tonight.  Yes I am.

Pumpkin Piñata

On Labor Day Granny had a pumpkin piñata for the kids.  And they loved it.  And there were these wonderful teeth gems in there.  And they loved them.  And so did Aunt Melanie :)
