Reading Richard Scary, one of their favorite books. I love it when I catch them enjoying something together.
These are their "cheese" smiles.
Playing house. Caitlin and Grace love their babies, cooking, and pretending to be some of our good friends and their families "playing house".
Painted toes. We have two very girly girls who love jewelry, dresses, and getting their toes painted. These are Graces toes. I painted her toes this time, but usually Nona, my mom, paints them. One day I painted my own toes and Grace asked me "Nona paint your toes mommy?"
I know most people who do these sorts of blogs post funny stuff their kids say but I'm going to make an exception and post something my wife said.
Last week we instituted three rules for dinner time behavior one of which is to not talk with your mouth full.
Several nights later as Nicole was attempting to jog Caitlin's memory she informed Caitlin that we are not to talk with our mouth open. Caitlin looked at Nicole funny and I started laughing. Soon we all joined in the laughter and had a little fun trying to talk with our mouths closed (you try it- I'll bet you'll find it quite humorous).
All of this made me thankful for my family and particularly for my wife and her humility displayed in being willing to laugh at herself.
I am a man created by God, marred by sin and redeemed by Christ. During my sojourn on this earth I have the pleasure of being married to my lovely wife Nicole and fathering four children ranging in age from 16 months to 6 years old.
