A Glorious List

Ella and Caroline have created a list of words that they think are HILARIOUS. A serious case of the sillies has taken over here and the list is just one side effect. So, here is the list, exactly as it is written. Apologies ahead of time for the toilet humor.

List of Funny Wurds

1. Popobut

2. Fartface

3. Poopolishise

4. Siftulenutene (I'm not sure, either)

5. Peefolenu

6. Stink (Beautiful in it's simplicity, no?)

7. Stinkeepeeface

8. Polunolodolo

9. Totolee (Totally, funny)

10. Duzzeezumeezu

11. Mopolopo

12. Stinkopink

13. Throwupfist

14. Hamhok

15. Stinkofortface

16. Poop

17. Looloohead

A work of timeless beauty, no doubt!

Spoke Too Soon

I guess I spoke too soon when I said that I would be posting again regularly. Lies. And the part about nobody having warts, that was a lie too. Ella got warts early this summer and they are just now all cleared up. We may be posting here again if I can figure out how to get pictures off of the video camera, I might be lying again, who knows. It feels good to be on here though. So many new ideas are cropping up in my head and the girls are just amazing right now. I've come to a place where I can sit back and enjoy the beautiful little souls that were sent to me just as they are. It is a good place, with a greater measure of peace than I have known in a long time.

Let's Try This Again, One More Time

Ella has one week of first grade under her belt. Early childhood is officially behind her and we are changed. Where have six and a half years gone? Days that dragged on forever turned into years that slipped through my hands in a moment. So in a weak attempt to stretch the next eleven and half years, I'll start posting in this space again. As I looked back on the old posts, I was so glad to have saved all those sweet memories in some way. I also wish I would have written about the not so sweet days. Days when we were sick, tired, bored and cranky. Times when I ran out of ideas and everyone was crying at once. Times when I lost patience and wisdom flew out the window. Those times will be included from now on, hence the new title, "Warts and all". Because I love this, these girls, this time, our life, warts and all.

(Just to be clear, nobody here actually has warts. But if they did, I would still love them - from a distance.)

Chuffie at 3 Months

Chuffie is 3 months old today so I had to take some pictures. Notice the exotic pillow backdrop and nuanced lighting scheme. We like things fancy around here!!

P.S. This is our 100th post. Yay!

Better Late Than Never

Here is a photo montage video of the girls. They took these in the hospital when Mairin was only 1 day old. How's that for convienence?
