Yes, it’s December and he’s wearing shorts…

*”What The” is in the post below. Be sure to check it out and take your guess!

I just got back from taking the boys to the park. They’ve had lunch and are settled in, so I am taking advantage of the quiet to upload a few photos from the morning. I haven’t mentioned my early Christmas present. (Actually, it is my only Christmas present and my belated birthday present. But I received it early so I could document the holiday with it.) It’s a Nikon D40 Digital SLR camera. And it is such an improvement from what I had. HUGE improvement.

I love watching my boys play together.

Please ignore that fingernail! I’m embarrassed by it and I know some circles have a name for that type of nail… but it’s such a cute photo of my oldest boy. It has since been trimmed. You may now nominate me for Mother of the Year.

Seamus liked wearing his sunglasses like this. If you enlarge this photo, you can probably catch a lovely reflection of me in my fancy “YES! I’m A MOM!” get-up. But if I were you, I’d pass on that.

I managed to catch Quinn making this same sort of expression on several occasions. It must be his playground face.

Meanwhile, this was how the littlest one in our group spent his time.

*Don’t forget: *
Take your guess below. I don’t care if you don’t want a header! Stop arguing with me! (oops, I forgot y’all aren’t my kids…)

And don’t forget to gather your recipe(s) for tomorrow.

    Adorable pictures!

    It is 80 degrees today in NC. I had to scrounge around my closet to find a short sleeved shirt to wear to work. And last week we had ice – weird!

    Today at our Bible study Christmas brunch, we talked about how embarrassingly long our kids nails get before we cut them. We all agreed that if anyone sees their nails, they must think badly of us. So you are not alone sister! :o)

    That can’t possibly be my babies in those pictures. They have all grown so much since September, especially Declan. Can’t wait until next week!!
