This and that: A picture post

I can't believe it's been two weeks since I posted last! Life is going way too fast! So, how about a quick catch-up picture post.

We've got two kids playing soccer this season. We've only had one game so far and I can already tell that keeping up with the practices and games is going to be a real juggling act. The biggest problem is that I want to see every one. I love watching my kids play and it kills me when Elizabeth's game is at the exact same time as Jonathan's. I wish I could be in two places at once!

Here are my soccer stars in the "action shots" that they requested.

Apparently naps are hard to come by in our house and kids have to grab them wherever they can get 'em!

Clara didn't make it to the end of our morning walk

The photographer who took our family portraits also took a few with the girls dressed up in her frilly skirts and headbands. While all the pink, tutus and feathers are not exactly my style, a certain 6 year old girl loved it!

She is now a girl on the move. She crawls on all fours and just started pulling up. She's everywhere!

The faceoff
She found the dog.

One more thing, but this time it's a video. Try not to laugh as you watch this. I dare you.

those little baby giggles are so sweet! My little guy smiles a TON, but it is so hard to get a giggle noise to come out! when he does finally giggle, it is so quiet sounding! Anyways, been thinking alot about family pics..maybe sometime towards the end of Oct or beginning of November?? I am so ready for the temp to drop...after all the first day of Fall was yesterday!!

Veronica,
The end of October or early November works for me. I know I'm really looking forward to that temperature drop!

I think I noticed one of your pictures featured again on thepioneerwoman ?? Congrats! I am so impressed about how far you've taken your photography skills so fast! Whenever I am able to get a nicer camera you may want to block my emails...questions galore will be coming :)
I would also love to hire you for some family pictures. We make trips your way a couple of times a year and I would LOVE to make it happen. Our next visit will be over spring break since a Christmas trip with 2 or 3 week old (plus 4 other kids and a dog) might be too complicated. I hope all is well with you guys!
