Claire's Birthday

A surprise on the way to Nanny's house:
Grrrr... I'm so sorry about the sideways pictures. No matter what I do I can't get them to upload the right direction.

Good job, the mother says.

I was watching old videos of the girls and I came across this one.  I think she was three at the time.

A couple of funnies

We were at a church meeting all weekend. On Saturday, it was taking the song leader a few minutes to get the tune of the song in his mind and so there was a little moment of silence. Eily started singing out, "The more we get together, together, together, the more we get together the happier we'll be." She sang the entire song and then at the end she yelled out, "Everybody! The more we get together..."

Apparently, Claire commandeered my camera while I was taking a nap one day. A few minutes ago I downloaded the pictures and found her snapshots. I will share one and it will give you an idea of what the rest of the pictures looked like.
That is all.

Wow. Today officially starts my third month. The last month of my first trimester and I am really excited about that because the BEST time in my pregnancies is the second trimester. You feel the best and you have an ultrasound where you can find out the sex of the baby if you so desire. And we usually do desire.

My mom is amazing. She has come twice this week to help me clean and get some laundry done. Bless her little heart. Buh-less her little heart. (quick trivia: Who says that?)

I have nothing else to say so here are a few pictures.

Goodnight everyone!
