Silly Faces!!!

The other day I was talking with some girls at work about the point of a blog. A few girls don't have them and wonder if they are really worth the effort. I say yes!! Anyways, I was thinking the point of the blog was to help keep in touch with friends and family, but one of my friends Melissa said she felt that a blog helps you to recognize and remember the cute things that your kids do and sometimes that is very necessary when they challenge your patience most of the time. I have been thinking about that for a while and yesterday was a perfect example of Melissa's theory. We were giving Xander lunch and the girls wanted their pics taken. I told Aeryn to smile and she did, but I told her to open her mouth a little when she smiles....this is what I got.

I looked at the pic on my camera and started laughing so hard...I mean to point where I had tears pouring out my eyes. Every time I would look back at the pic, I would laugh harder and harder...The kids started cracking up including Xander and hence a few more silly pics. Melissa- thanks for reminding me to look for the cute things and sweet things in my kids :)!!!

Oh yah, Aeryn can cross her eyes whenever she wants and uses that to make people laugh...I caught one of the eyes crossed in this photo!!

That is hilarious and special at the same time. I'm glad you were able to capture a "moment" with your kids. What would we do without the moments? I died laughing at the crossed eyes!!!

Carly, your kids are beautiful! I definitely can tell they are yours. I look at your blog all the time and love to see the new pics.

They are really funny faces! We miss them! Xander looks so mature! Ellie and Aeryn look happy. We can't imagine them being cranky!
