New Pics of Girls!
























































We took some new pics of the girls last weekend. It's always an event, but this one was really bad because I couldn't find one of the four skirts I wanted them to wear, so Gracie doesn't match and it drives me crazy! It's not bad in black and white though! Oh well, we need new ones in a few months. This is the twins 5 yr (they turned 5 in April) and Gracie's 18 month (she's a few months off of that too), but at least they're getting some taken.
Oh our little Gracie, she's mastered the art of the closed fist punch, and she really likes to save this for close proximity. So don't get in her face- I guess she's seen too much Wipe Out. This week has been eventful..Addie asked me if I hate her because I'm always so mean...that one made me feel good. I tried to explain that she only gets in trouble when she's naughty, hurts her sisters or talks back, but as much as I explained, it didn't make me feel any better. So, we made a deal, if she works on being a good listener, I'll work on talking nicely. Yea, I suck. Anyways, then the twins found that special drawer in my room that they have never seen. We'll just leave it at that, and you can use your imagination. Seriously, why am I the only adult home right now?? Days are never dull around here! I figure if I can't laugh at myself, I'll just be crying all the time!

Christi,
Hilarious!! I've so been there, on all of it. So true, seems like the craziest moments, the hardest discussions, all of it seems to happen when Daddy's not around. Sigh. I love seeing pictures of your family. You are all so beautiful! Your girls have just grown into such beautiful little ladies! I love your haircut, and congrats on your pregnancy!

Sorry you "got caught". A good reminder that "the drawer" needs to move higher!

SUPER CUTE pictures. I can't believe how much Addie looks like you. When are you coming to Utah again?

Love you all,
Kim

We just saw your blog! We wanted to thank you for the thoughts and prayers for Jake. The support that we have felt has been huge for our little family. Don't you love being the mean parent? Jake told me the other day he was going to call Heavenly Father and have him send him a new dad. The joys!

So first I have to say again how cute your girls are. I'm sure you get asked all the time if the three oldest are triplets. They look SO much alike in pictures! I'm also glad that there is someone else out there like me that wants to have her kids matching. People just don't understand, do they? LOL! And don't feel bad, Felicity has said things like that to me on more than one occasion. Life with kids is too fun, isn't it? It's good to know I'm not the only one going through this stuff!

Too cute!! As always.So how long does it take to curl all that long blonde hair? That's the beauty of boys no hair to fix. I get to practice every year at girl's camp though.
Two thumbs up!!I consider a sign of good parenting if someone hates me each and everyday.
If all they find is the drawer consider yourself lucky!!

Beautiful pictures Christi....your girls are adorable. Congrats on number 5 on the way...you are way braver than me...we'll eventually have that many, but a little more slowly :) my girls tell me I'm mean all the time. As my mom says, you wouldn't be a good mom if you didn't hear that every once in a while! I'm sure you are wonderful!!

Looking at all of that hair makes me tired! How do you do it and the matching clothes? My kids are lucky to have something clean even if it is mismatched and wrinkled. Cute pics and I am still laughing at your story...to be a fly on the wall! Love you!
