Sleep tight

Naptime is the best time.

It's kind of hard to get her to take a nap every day now.  But when she doesn't she is so wired and crazy that life is pretty miserable from about 3:00 pm until bedtime.  Which when there is no nap, is like at 6:00.

But then when she naps she stays up later.  So I don't know which is better really.

But I do know that her hair was really cute in braids today with a little whirlpool curl at the very end.

This face

I love this little face.  Also I hate January.  Also it's supposed to snow tonight and people here are acting like it'll be ten inches.  But all I can see predicted is 1-3. . . so I guess we'll see what the night brings.

In any case, I'm fairly certain there won't be school tomorrow.  Joy.

De ja vu

Sometimes I feel like I am raising Cameron and Jace again all over but as girls.

I was reading an old blog post about Jace when he was Liv's age, and all the things I said about him are things I think about Liv.  Like I don't know how I am ever going to survive this stage from they.  Like she gets into everything.  And he did too, it seems.

And then there's Leesie, who is so good natured and loves food so much.  Just like Cam. 

Plus even in the old pictures Liv looks reminded me of Jace.  That same little twinkle of trouble in their eyes.  And Leesie reminds me of Cam.

It's kinda crazy.

A happy little prisoner

We have a chicken

We have a chicken because Brice built a garage for this guy who has lots of chickens.  The boys went over there a lot as Brice was building, and the guy gave them a chicken.  He also gave them a big white rabbit.  The rabbit only comes out at night though.  So the only evidence I've seen of the rabbit is a pile of rabbit poop in this big cage.

Today was a randomly warm January day.  It got up to almost sixty.  The sun was shining and even though the ground was super wet from the rain, snow and ice, we spent some time outside after school.

Cam and liv played on the rusty old swing set.

Then Cam got off, and right after he got off he got slammed in the nose by Liv, who was still swinging.  And his nose bled.  And there were quite a few tears.  But I'm not heartless.  I stopped taking pictures while he was crying and we were soaking up blood.

And then there's Jace, who lost a top tooth.  And also reminds me of Jim Carey in dumb and dumber a little bit with his hair cut.

Then Cam was sulking sadly on the porch so Liv and Jace went to cheer him up.

See what I mean about the Jim Carey resemblence?????

Tomorrow will be nice again, and then back to winter.  Brrrrrrr.
