Pictures of late

I thought that I had better take a minute and share some of the pictures of the last couple of weeks. We haven't been up to much really, just the usual, but here are some pictures anyway.

Amber resting in a big box. How is it that kids can spend hours — yes hours — playing with a box?! It was fine with me; I used the time to clean up around the house. But I was surprised how long it kept them (mainly Amber) entertained.
Elle trying to lay down in the diaper box like Amber.
Amber pretending to sleep.
Amber excited about being on the swing after a long wait for a turn.
Elle having fun swinging — so much that she cried when she had to get off so others could have a turn.
Amber ready to go to her Joy class.
Elle: who needs a spoon when you have a hand?
Elle loving her yogurt. Now I know why I buy them in the tube.
Elle looking so big with her hair back in a ponytail.
Pretty girls.
Elle one afternoon after her nap (she had her hair half pulled up before sleeping).
Amber all princess'd out with her little buddy Ella.Elle giving the hat a try.
Me as a princess cowgirl (as Amber says).
Bret Michaels, move on over.

Papa portrait

So for the last week or so Amber has been trying her skills at drawing instead of just coloring or scribbling. I don't know how it exactly came about but she has been drawing pictures of J (her papa). The first time that I saw one of her portraits of him I just couldn't help but laugh. They turn out a little different every time but for the most part this is how they look:

This is only his face, mind you, but I think she has some talent don't you? This one doesn't have as much facial hair as most of the others that she has drawn (on her doodler) but I thought that I had better get some pictures to share and to remember by. Is is just me or does this one kind of look like an otter (the others have looked more like jelly beans)?
