I can't help it, my girls crack me up. Listening to them talk to each other - watching them interact - it's all just fun - mostly because I really love this age. Four is a great age - they can do some things for themselves, they can play together well while still taking naps (quiet time really) most days - what could be more perfect?
I've been capturing some of their funniest moments in recent weeks and thought I would share.
Before I share why I took this picture - do notice that it is bright day outside and they are wearing their PJ's or "pajammies" (pronounced pu-jammies) as they are called in our house - they are in love with all their pajammies and would much rather wear them ALL the time if allowed.
But for this photo they had found some "snapping dolls" that they have and the dolls had braided hair so they brought me the plastic dolls hair and asked if I could do their hair this way - this is the result:
(Disclaimer - I have 4 girls but I am NOT the worlds best braider...)
Piled on top of Daddy - also in their pajammies.
Apparantly these buckets are perfect umbrellas. I love how they all like to copy each other and when one decides something it's law for everyone and they all have to do it. So, someone decided that this was a great idea and they all joined in marching in cirlces around our house.
What makes me laugh even more is while I was the one that asked to take a picture of them like this they then gave me a list of what pictures they wanted:

And then turn to the right:
Because you know those were important pictures :)
And no post about how silly they are would be complete without a photo of Rachel and her beloved books:
You have to notice the title of the book she's "reading": "Heaven Sent Husband" - while Julianna does ask me often when she'll be old enough to get married Rachel tends to keep these questions to herself. Apparantly she's found the answers in her books. Also notice how worn and turned the pages are - if you know me then you know that I have NOT read this book - this is not even close to the genre I enjoy so all the page turning is solely Rachel's :)
Gotta love it.
