Dani and Alex the Photographers

Santa was kind enough to bring a kid-friendly camera for the girls to share. It's been fun watching them get excited to take a picture and run for their camera! (not unlike Mommy...)
Here's a sampling of their first "roll". I've been bad about downloading them frequently and I suspect they've deleted some of their own shots because pressing buttons is fun.

These are Dani's creations:






These are Alex's:






And these are of unknown origin, since one of the girls isn't in the photo! I love the kid-level perspective. :)

Snow Gardening

We got lucky and were able to go out and enjoy the recent snow before the extreme COLD hit last week. I think the girls miss planting sticks in the dirt...
(Ben, however, is happy to be in the baby bjorn under my coat. It's where he'd be anyway, snow or no snow.)

Dani is funny

Again, only have a story for this one, but it was cute...

Today after dinner, Jack was singing 'The Wheels on the Bus' with the girls. Dani decided to add her own verse out of the blue and began singing, "The Toys on the Bus say Clean Up Time, Clean Up Time, Clean Up Time..."

We all LOL, including Alex who loves word play.

Alex is funny

I wish I had a video to accompany this one, but the stories will have to do.

The girls and I were talking in the car on the way to daycare on tuesday, and the subject of how they slept the night before came up. Dani said, "Good" but Alex said, "I had a scary dream." So I asked her, "What was in your dream?" She put up her hands in the way kids usually do when describing a bear - with claws out - and made a grrrr kind of face like a bear, but as she did this, she said, "Babies."

Tonight she cracked Jack and I up at bathtime. Jack was joking with her about her toothbrush and he said something to the effect of "Ok, let's brush inside your nose." And she said that no, this was a toothbrush, "But there is a brush that looks just like this one only it's for your nose. It's a nosebrush."
