More pics of the girls, what else

I had these all ready to post a few nights ago and then poof! I was doing some cropping of the pics and thought I was deleting one picture but instead everything I had just worked on was gone and I didn't know how to get it back. So this morning I redid them all and here you go.

Lindsey started a Tumble and Jazz class a few weeks ago. Here she is all ready on the first day:




Allison woke up sick a few Sundays ago. She seemed so mellow when she got up, and at first we weren't sure if she was just tired or if she was sick. Then she threw up. :-) She slept all morning and then she was fine after that thankfully. I have no idea what that was all about. Doesn't she look sweet and a little pathetic?






This picture tells the story of the position these little girls take with each other. Lindsey ALWAYS has to be the center of attention. Poor Allison is sometimes the "poor little sister" tagging along.



But they do love each other!









Although you might not always be able to tell, LOL:



Loving books:





It's funny that when we first adopted Lindsey, the nannies told us she did not like "hairy toys" (translation: stuffed animals!) Now she LOVES them! She's not really into dolls, but she loves her stuffed animals. She loves real animals too. She says she wants to be a veterinarian when she grows up. :-)



Just looking pretty:









Not happy all the time!


Hope you enjoyed the pictures! Life isn't always happy and easy around here, raising 2 active little girls plus a teenage son can be so exhausting. Some days I just want to throw in the towel. Life can be very HARD! But the good things do outweigh the bad. I so love my kids though and thank God He has blessed me 3 times over. There was a day when I wondered if I'd have any kids, and then I thought Ben would be an only child forever. So remind me how thankful I am when I am struggling! :-)

Have a good day!

You are right...it is worth it! I LOVE the picture of Allison with the huge smile...are those dimples? She is too cute. Davie still wants to be the center of attention all the time too. It's tough sharing a kingdom I guess :) Take care! Many blessings.

LOVE the happy pictures!!! The sick pictures make me sad - I just hate to see our little ones sick - but so glad it was short-lived!

Great, great photos! Your girls are just precious! Parenting is so incredibly hard. I'm exhausted ALL the time! With 4 running around, there is never a dull moment and I often think...okay, maybe tomorrow, there will be time for rest. NOT! But, yes, it is worth it and I thank God for those sweet moments in the midst of all the chaos!
