Life, As Usual

Well, life has slowly returned to normal over the past few days.  Ben is back at work, the girls are getting on each other's nerves, the house needs to be vacuumed.  I think we have finally caught up on the laundry.  Mostly.

One thing, however, has changed.  I think we are finally back in our blogging groove.  We had so much fun taking pictures of our days and activities while the Crews' were here.  The kids keep bringing me things and asking for pictures and videos to be taken.  The funny thing is, we seem to taken more enjoyment in the every day things if we know we get to share them with someone else later, even if it is just this blog.  So here's a little catch-up on what has been going on.

Sunday night I challenged Ben to a game of Connect 4.  Since he couldn't beat me, Olivia wanted to take a shot.  She got me one out of three games.  Then, of course, Kelsey needed to try.  Again, one out of three games.  I'm still the champion, but it's not over yet.  Kelsey keeps asking to try again...

Kelsey also wanted me to take a picture of her crazy teeth.  She's as snaggle-toothed as they come these days!

And isn't this boy just too cute for words?

He helped with the tournament, too.  He put my pieces in for me.

One of the toys that has caused the most ruckus over the past few weeks had been this little number:

Kelsey & Connor were pretending to be dogs and pull it around the room with their teeth.

And when it finally got the best of them, Maddox went in for the kill.

This "dog" thing is really starting to get out of control.

The "dog thing" will never end. Welcome to my life.
