Baby Reunion

Several weeks ago 2 of my friends and I who all have babies born with weeks of each other got all the babies together to do some playing and of course photographing. It's fun to watch these little guys grow up together.

Here's Ty and his backup singers

In this series of pictures my friend Mary caught a rarely seen glimpse of baby thought processes. Watch the drama unfold...

Becca says to herself, "Hmm, that toy looks like a lot of fun."
Now it's even closer and she's definitely thinking about making her move.
How easy was that? Little Sweetie OFFERS it to her!
Success! Becca scored the toy and the Little Sweetie is on to newer and better toys.

But wait...perhaps that one was the best toy after all...
And both girls are back to their original positions - and seem happy about it!
Here's Becca watching the two crawlers about to make a dash to get out of the picture.

Budding photographer

This picture was taken by O Boy the other day. Nice work! He actually got both of us in the frame and smiling. Even seasoned photographers struggle with that sometimes.

Alaskan fun

The boys wanted to go outside tonight after their bath and with jammies on to see the stars (since we have a cloudy sky so much of the time this is a rare enough occurrence to make it exciting). So they put on their boots and hats and skipped out into the below freezing weather to look at the stars and scoot around in the snow. True Alaskan fun!

Christmas Tree Hunt 2009

O Boy decided he needed to wear the complete lion costume the entire time. You'll notice his tail sticking up and out of his snowpants.

Since I always have trouble figuring out how blogger is going to upload our photos, some of these sequences are backwards!

Yet again Dad wrestles a painfully pokey tree onto the top of the car.

Only about 11 feet tall this year!
Watching the chainsaw at work. This year, for the first time, Phil found our tree just a short distance away from where we parked the cars and within minutes of our arriving. Amazing.

Taking O Boy's tree back to the car.

My very own tree!
Holding on while dad cuts it down (he chose a painfully pokey spruce!)
This is the ONE.
Off to find my own tree with Dad.

My very own tree!

Here's my little tree!
Standing on a frozen old moose (or elk?) hide we found by the cars.
A big animal skull we found by the cars.
O Boy gets some costume adjustment (his lion mask was tipped) help from Mr. Ray.
Wow! What is this huge thing??
