A Laugh for You

This afternoon I was relaxing on the couch (it's a snow day) and I noticed Maddox looking extremely cute. He was "paddling his boat". I started snapping pictures, and the results... oh my. We've got a serious cheeser on our hands. He and Kelsey are so much alike that way.

It started off innocently enough. He was just paddling his boat.

And paddling some more.

And being a pirate.

Then I captured this picture. And I started laughing...

Which, of course, meant that Connor needed a turn in the boat.

And they wanted to pose together.

They were trying to make me laugh again. 

 And, yes, they were succeeding.

More than they realized, probably.

Needless to say, it was a fun afternoon.

Budding Musicians

This morning I was listening to Miss H tinker on the piano and sing. She was even writing her own lyrics:

"This is my Ossie... and he is a princess...."

Of course, when I took my camera out to record her she had moved on to a different song. I'm guessing this is one of those New Age style things with no real words, just a lot of vowel sounds.

Not to be outdone, big brother O-man had to write his own song (be sure to watch H's expression).

It's nice to see how much these kids love their siblings. I'm drowning in cuteness this morning!
