Day 56 {family pictures}

Today was a good day. It was nice to be home with the kids. Here are the pictures:

We decided to do some family pictures for a layout I'm working on.

Ava helped me sweep at lunchtime.

And tried to chase the dog with the broom when she thought my back was turned.

Ava watching Auntie M leave after her visit. This is her new thing - standing on the window sill. This was about two seconds before I told her to get down.

Ava's current favourite book - The Paper Bag Princess by Robert Munsch. It skyrocketed to the top of her list the second the princess called the prince a bum and didn't marry him.

Owen at dinner tonight.

Well, that's it for today. Thanks for looking!

Very sweet! I love the expressions on the boys faces! Little heartbreakers for sure!

Hilarious one of Ava "sweeping". What a ham she is! Had a great time today with the kids as always, but it's never long enough! Hoping to pop by tomorrow after work for another play!

Oh man, I so love the orange and black sweaters on the boys. They are priceless.

Great shot of Ava riding the broom, too.

I guess every (almost) three year old girl is the same...or at least our girls are. They love brooms and the same books :) I had to laugh when I read your post and saw the exact same book that I took a picture of tonight! Alyssa laughs at the exact same thing! She thinks the book is so funny!

Great family pics too!

Great pictures, what a sweet family you have! Beautiful pictures. With a four year-old in the house I know a lot about the broom and the dog... they can play forever!

Fabulous pictures again Jen. Impossible to pick a favourite one! I remember the days of The Paper Bag Princess. I will have to check Melanie's "collection". i think we have Robert M. reading it on tape. he is so expressive! Do hope that everyone is feeling better now.
