Here Comes Trouble

And apparently it comes in twos.

Brandon is a grabber... and he's quick. He looks quite proud of himself, don't you think? Who knew he could reach the cereal bag from the "confines" of the Bumbo?

Kallie is a drama queen. Every little thing that is asked of her just totally ruins her day.

Kallie: "Mom, can I have more tater tots?"
Mom: "Eat more cabbage first."
Kallie: "Aw, but I very don't like cabbage."
Mom: "Well, no more tater tots until you eat at least three leaves."
Kallie: (groans)
Mom: "Oh yes, I'm such a mean mother because I want you to eat healthy food that helps you grow big and strong."
Reluctantly, she pulled each leaf off the pile one by one, and...

later when the kids were in bed, this is what I found under the table.

Kallie, we don't even have a dog. She is in so much trouble!

Paige some tumbling classes last month and loved it! I didn't get to go to the big show at the end because Kallie was sick, but Russ went and took some pictures of her doing her thing. Go Paige!

A Study in Grapefruit

Today was the day I've been waiting for. Last night's freeze convinced me to pluck one of the grapefruit from my tree and eat it before it gets destroyed somehow.

It was... DELICIOUS.

The cut open pieces of my grapefruit, sitting there all dug out after giving me long awaited satisfaction, looked so bright and beautiful against the backdrop of my black granite counter tops.

So, I took a page out of Jill's book and decided to photograph something mundane to tell a story on my blog.

And then I got photo editor happy.

Behold... my study in grapefruit.

The Lazy Days of... Winter?

You couldn't ask for a more beautiful day.
