Sam and Abby, a photographic disaster

I asked them to put their arms around one another.  I should have been more specific with Sam apparently.  You notice that Abby is trying her darnedest to make photo magic happen, but... Maybe I should have tied him up... or used duck tape... you know it's gonna come down to that one of these days!

Finally, they got haircuts

Kaden has been asking me for three weeks to take him in for a haircut.  This morning I finally remembered to call for appointments.  The boys look all clean cut once more, and wow, they have ears!  Chloe cut five inches off her long locks.  She says she looks more like Nancy Drew now!  I'm so glad that's who she looks up to!  She's been carrying around a little notebook and jotting down random clues to the next big mystery!

Kaden's latest exhibit

I'm sure he would tell me what dinosaurs these are if I worked up the courage to ask (and had half an hour to spare)!  I love these skeletal remains he cuts out.  Where did he ever come up with that talent?  I can't even cut out a circle!

a note to my children:

Choose to make a mess of a closet around here,

Be prepared to lose a lot!

And what you don't lose, 
you might find you also can't reach!
One day they'll move out learn.
As for today, that closet looks simply smashing!
I am really going to miss all these closets...
but they probably won't ever notice what's missing!

Where could that battery charger have gone?

I cannot find the battery charger for the camera!
I have looked all week, but I must finally conclude that:
A:  Enemy forces are onto me.... my battery has been stolen!  (Highly unlikely seeing as I am only a Super Secret Super Spy to my kids who will believe anything!)
B:  My husband wants to buy me a new camera and so he has hidden the battery, thereby inducing in me a state of near hysteria so that he can enjoy the ultimate heroic moment and save the day!
C:  The baby, who shall remain nameless, has thrown it away, put it somewhere, or buried it. Bad Jack!  Bad, bad baby!

I'm hoping for B!!!  So, here's the last little bit my camera had to give before it started beeping in a kind of creepy manner and then eerily fell silent...

This has got to be the cutest swimsuit, evah!

Sam's Zoo - Pedestrians Beware

You'll never guess what the girls want for Christmas..
What, a baby, you say?
Man, however did you guess?

Lil' Dude in underpants!
And no, he won't let go.  Every picture looks like that.
