How the Other Half Lives

Most of you know that Michael and I (and our girls) are very lucky to have family close enough to us, that we get to enjoy a few weekends here and there to ourselves...and let's be honest--the kids don't hate it either! And most of you know that my children are semi-groomed at all times, usually with a giant bow in their head! But, I learned a long time ago that grandparents do things VERY differently from Mom and Dad. And if I want to continue to enjoy my child-free moments, then I would have to learn to accept this. That said, a while back I had to borrow Pattie's camera for something because I had forgotten mine. When I sat down to upload the pictures to my computer, I was met with a few images that had me laughing. And I thought I would share.
This picture was taken at the beach. Wait a minute...I WAS THERE! Where was I when my child was dressed like a hobo?? Please note that she is wearing shoes--she went out like this.
Really? Instead of taking Ana Blair's hand out of the toilet and putting the lid down we decide to grab a camera? Really??
These are some strange children I found amidst the pictures...clearly not mine.
Those aren't teeth in Ana Blair's head. Those are marshmallows. And she's wearing pajamas, which means one of three things. 1. Its first thing in the morning and we're having marshmallows. 2. Its right before bedtime and we're having marshmallows. or 3. We spent all day in our pajamas (which doesn't by any means mean that we spent the entire day at home...no, no, no...I'm sure this day entailed breakfast at The Ketch-a-Bite, a trip to the beauty shop, by the bank, stop in to see Great-Granny, lunch with Kiki and Titi and The Red Barn and probably on to church or somewhere like that).

I guess this one was too good not to post twice??
What?? This is how I roll...toast and eggs kicked back on the couch.
What? Don't you hang out on porches with an army of snowpeople?? Its like she's the lead singer of their band.

The photos of your girls are so cute. I have two daughters also,but they are in college now. I was at my parents home this afternoon and happend to find a photo album with pictures of my girls when they were little that I have never seen. It was maiking me laugh and cry at the same time. Tehy grow up so fast and pictures are the best way to keep memories alive.
