Give the people what they want

I'm no idiot. I know my family and friends won't be visiting this blog to hear my thoughts on global warming (right, Missy?) or to get my take on the war in Iraq, or to see if I think Brad and Angelina are headed for splitsville (sorry, that just slipped out). No, I know what will draw them in--pictures. Lots and lots of pictures.
So let's get started with the shameless bragging...

No one does drama like Claire. I can't remember what I did to make her so mad, but whatever it was, it was worthy of this look. I probably didn't make matters much better by forcing her to hold the pose while I took her picture, but seriously, can you blame me?

Arden Kate is a girl on the move. She crawls! She pulls up! She looks just like her Daddy!

Here are a few "sisters" pictures...

And finally, a couple from last weekend's Backyard Bash at Claire's school. She had a great time jumping in the bouncy houses, riding the ponies and eating ice cream AND a snow cone AND popcorn. It really doesn't take much to make her happy... And Arden was content to be carried around and watch all the fun--as long as she got her fair share of ice cream and snow cones!

Love it! I am cracking up at Claire's mad face. The tattoo on her arm really "makes" the outfit. Can't wait to read more!

You write so well. I'm glad you are keeping a diary of these special days. It's so true that they grow up fast.
Well, Clare's face in the princess outfit is something to see -- and I'm glad I did! Keep it coming, Mer. It's a great way to keep extended family plugged in. I love it! Hug the girls for me!

P.S. Boy, do I feel old just writing that :~)
