In mid April we woke up to SNOW on the ground. We were not super impressed, but decided to make the most of it. Both kids wore snowman shirts and I wore snowman socks. It almost made us feel in the Christmas spirit again haha.
|M & T: We are not fans of this snow... it is supposed to be Spring!|
|M & T: At least we have super fun shirts to wear!|
The kids and I were looking through some old photo albums of me growing up. They found this photo of me in a fancy dress. It had the date on it and it happened to be exactly 15 years after the photo was taken. That night I threw my weary self back into the dress. It still fit perfectly. I decided to take a 15 years later photo. I think I am doing pretty well, esp since the older pic involved a professional doing my hair and makeup and the new pic involved no makeup and hair in a pony tail.
|15 years ago, just look at that fresh face!|
|Today, not so fresh, but look at the sweet photos behind me that caused the weariness. So Worth It! (Yes, I did try to strike the pose in the photo above. Not sure why. I guess so you would have to figure out which was which haha)|
|What? This doesn't happen at your house?!|
I wanted to get a few shots of my kids in the tub. I wanted to get some that didn't expose privates, but showed my beautiful children. Amazingly without them knowing that is what we were going for, it happened. I love these photos because they show my children's beautiful skin and my lovely yellow bathtub haha about the bathtub, though I honestly don't even notice the color anymore. I am always amazed when I bathe them how close their skin shades are. T is darker complected than many Asians and M lighter than many Africans. I guess this might be why people frequently ask us if they are twins... seriously, they do.
|My "twins" both years apart on different continents with different bio parents.|
|T: This bath water is delish M: I am going to race these balls.|
|Happy Easter 2014|
|Easter with a little giggle and cheese!|
|T: Mom, I promise I can keep this dress clean.|
|T: This is what I do when someone tells me to smile. Awesome now. Later I will wonder why I did this.|
|T: Just in case things get a little rough on the changing table, my head will be safe.|
M took an interest in drawing this Spring. Before this he only scribbled (and maybe after too since it has been a while since he has done this). One day he said he wanted to draw a person and this is what he drew. He had been writing his name for about a month. I did a post about it, but drafted it due to the name thing. I am just going to go ahead an post one.
|M's first person!|
|M: I can't believe I did this! His name and his family!|
|One more person!|
|Let's Go Fly A Kite!!!!!|
|M: Look Mom, I can do it all by myself!|
|My beautiful family.|
|M: Can you tell how intense it was? Well, it was pretty intense.|
