I have thought about it so much lately, how I so suddenly put blogging on the back burner 4 years ago after many years of blogging almost daily. I still can’t put my finger on why I did that and, try as I have, I haven’t been able to figure out how to make it a part of my daily life again.
I’m not sure what I want to say right now but there really is so much to write and I feel an incredible urge lately to return to this place where I have archived so many memories, this place my kids love to come and read about our family’s life and they laugh at themselves and talk about how much they have grown.
This place that has been quiet far too long. It’s time to wake it back up.
For today I’m going to post pictures.
You can probably tell from the new header that somebody got into the paint recently.
Guess who. I’ll give you a hint.
Yeah. It was all of us.
In November my friend Marty did a family painting photo session with us and it was hilarious and needs to be written about in detail because apparently when it comes to family pictures I’m Claire Dunphy.
And Kait is whatever character pays good money for the supplies and special lens needed (it was a very cool gift from her) and then totally forgets about the whole thing until her dad calls her asking where she is and she jumps out of bed where she was watching a show, runs out the door, and STILL shows up looking amazing.
I think this one is where Kait is telling the boys that they’d better not get any paint on her.
All Maggie wanted to do was paint the canvas purple.
She did not understand why we were putting paint on each other.
But Lanie absolutely did not want to paint the canvas.
As a matter of fact, this paint session was not her most favorite activity ever.
While she wasn’t her most cheerful, Lanie did give us a few good smiles.
We had a great time but I do regret not thinking it through a bit more. Like not have a ladder in the background and maybe moving the little trampoline out of sight.
The important thing was that we had a terrific time, made a fun memory, and ended up with some really great pictures.
And some really awesome family art.
