Logan's 6th Birthday

With the recent arrival of the Nintendo DS there has been a Mario revival in our house. And even though Logan had a Mario themed birthday party last year, he wanted another one this year. Since that meant we could reuse some props from last year I was more than happy to oblige.

Another Hidden Gem

I caught Samara playing with our camera a week ago but never thought to check through the pictures to see if she had taken any. Today I finally pulled all the pictures off the camera and noticed she had taken about 15 pictures of nothing but the couch, the floor, a stuffed animal... and then these two pictures. Logan and Samara have an interesting dynamic. They can be the best of friends one second and the worst of friends the next. This was one of the many moments when Samara was annoying Logan. I love how unfiltered Logan's emotions are in these photos. If we were around, Logan would've played down his anger or at least tried to hide if from us. But through Samara's disobedience with the camera we were offered a glimpse into the world usually reserved for siblings.

Sunday Lunch

The kids were being particularly cute for some reason while we sat down to lunch after church today. So we whipped out the camera!

Vanessa's Pics

Our good friend Vanessa made a surprise visit from Vermont this weekend (and by surprise I mean Tiffany opened up the front door and was surprised - although I knew beforehand.) She is an aspiring photographer and volunteered to take some family pictures for us. They turned out great! Here are a few of them. Thanks Vanessa!
