middle to end of march 2011

The better part of this month was spent figuring out which area/subdivision/house we were going to buy our home in.  And, it was also the month where we put our current home on the market.  Needless to say, it was crazy.  Hence, the lack of photos taken.  But, we did manage to take some pictures of our little leprechauns on the Sunday before St. Patrick's day. (for some odd reason, I thought that Sunday the 13th was St. Patrick's Day and proceeded to pinch those without green in the parking lot on our way into church.  Oops.  My bad.  Sorry everyone who was pinched.  Please forgive.  It was an honest mistake.) 

Now onto the photos taken after church.  
Side note: Cal DID have socks on during church, but wanted them off in the car.  Upon realization that we were going to go outside and take photos, I opted to forego the socks and do shoes only.  Normally, we're sock people.  In case you cared at all (which you probably didn't).  

I was there too.  In a green skirt, no less.

Blast our STICK-LIKE grass!  Poor child.  It's amazing his hands weren't all cut up!  It's times like these I dream of the amazing UTAH grass...

No, Aaron didn't wear this shirt to church.  He opted to change (per his usual) the SECOND we walked in the door.  

I don't know what this song was, but it's pretty funny.

Aaron's mouth is the BEST in this one.

 The grill-meister.  Hard at work.  Well, hopefully not working TOO hard.  It was, after all, the Sabbath.
Cal's favorite Sunday activity... relaxing.  He looks mighty comfortable.  Wouldn't you say?
::: Random bath photos.  This first one of Tillie is funny b/c this doesn't look like Typical Tillie.  Her hair is SUPER curly (I think it was braided) and she was pretending to be a bunny with her pink bunny-eared-headband.  She's a nut.  But, we all have known that fact for quite some time.

Another random night.  Tillie and Cal LOVE taking baths each night.  It's one thing in our routine that they never begrudge.  They are big fans.  Unfortunately, often times I have to play REFEREE rather than lifeguard, b/c they are now in the delightful stage where sharing isn't cool.  Sometimes I feel like I should be wearing a whistle to break up fights.  Do any of you out there feel like that too sometimes?
Oh well.  Luckily, these were some HAPPY photos. 

Who needs bath toys when you can just have BIG CUPS?  hA!  They LOVE having a billion cups to play with.
I thought this was cool with the water.  Agree?  Agreed.

::: Like Aaron mentioned in another post, Tillie would love to PAINT all day everyday if we'd let her.  But, it's messy and Cal likes to be involved with her every activity---so if we pull out the mess, we typically wait until Calvin is asleep.  Matilda had been especially helpful that day while Aaron was out of town, so I decided to pull out a little panel and let her paint on something LEGIT that I could hang up on her wall.  She, of course, LOVED it.  I had fun recording her on the video camera while she painted it exactly how she wanted.

Oh, and another little tidbit: the jammy top she is wearing used to be mine when I was her age.  Pretty cute.  My mom made it for me back in the day.  I love the ruffles on top of the sleeves.

::: We were sad when our little neighbor, Cohen moved last year.  But, luckily for us, we got NEW neighbors with another little boy Tillie's age!  And, they happen to go to church with us too!  How cool is that?!  Tillie loves when she has the chance to play with Paul.  He's pretty darling.  Here are the kiddos outside playing with his new basketball hoop.  Calvin loves getting in on the action. 
It just so happened that Paul and Tillie had matching shorts on.  
As I type this, Matilda is in my lap saying, "Hey, we were twinners! And we both have sandals on!"  :)  She's a smart cookie.  
I, personally, love the rest of her ensemble.  If you've seen the movie, How to Train Your Dragon, you'll know that the main girl character, Astrid, wears her headband like this on her head.  Tillie is convinced that THIS is the proper way to wear a headband... "just like Astrid!"

Tillie loves these shorts and always wants to wear them.  Her dad has a similar pair too (I think that's the reason for her undying love).  Unfortunately, we don't have a belt for this little girl.  And, every time she wears these, they slide off her rear-end.  Here she is annoyed  that they are sliding off, yet again.  I had to snap a picture.  I was laughing SO hard when I saw her from the back.  You'll see why...
here's a shot of the backside.  So funny.  Uh oh!
Well, that's the story of March.  What a great shot to conclude a great month.  hA!
