"up shut"

Of course these pictures got all out of whack. Here is a great cheesy smile from Sydney. Usually her eyes are closed in pictures.
Jordyn: When I tell her it's time to go to bed she closes her eyes to "hide" like she did in this picture.
Sydney her first day of preschool. Notice she is smiling, but her eyes are closed. Stubborn little girl.
Sydney and I on a date to see the broadway show of "Lion King." We both loved it. It was fabulous! Hmmm, another picture of Sydney smiling w/ her eyes closed, at least with her I don't have to worry about red eye.
And for all those who wonder what I look like 15 weeks along, her is an ordinary picture in ordinary clothes w/ a smile hiding my true thoughts, "Why am I doing this to myself. I could've at least tried to look pretty by wearing cuter clothes and put on some makeup."

A few updates to our lives. This is Sydney licking her lollipop. Like Gammie, like granddaughter. My mom has talented toes. She can tie someone's shoes w/ her toes and strike a match w/ her toes and it looks like Sydney has inherited the same toe agility gene as her Gammie.
"Termination Dust." This is a phrase used here. I had never heard of it until now. Termination dust is the end of summer because there is a light covering of snow on top of the mountains. This picture was taken from our street.
The trees in our backyard. Summer has ended and fall has arrived. The trees are turning yellow. When the wind comes up, it appears like it's raining leaves as they all fall to the forest's ground. These trees are in our backyard.
Another picture of our backyard....the ground. I love to see the different colors of yellow, green, brown, and red.
Just another great picture. A few weeks ago all these trees were green. The change has come quickly and soon enough these trees will be barren and the mountains will be covered in snow. More great pictures to come.
This is a side note to my blog. This morning I was singing rather loudly and obnoxiously when Sydney told me to stop several times. I ignored her and kept singing. Finally she said, "Mom I have two words for you....UP SHUT." I told her I had two words for her, "Time Out." I'll have to once again ban some of those disney movies w/ those "bad words."

I really love to see those pictures of Alaska. Keep them coming!

Oh, and the toe agility is really funny!

OK you're girls are SO CUTE! You live in such a beautiful area. Keep posting photos of the changing leaves and season. You know how it is in California...we're getting those late summer heat the 90's and 100's. ARGH! I feel bad for Finn. You're so cute with your little bump.

I love the pictures. It is really beautiful there. I also love that you put a weather update on your sidebar. I'm always curious as to other people's weather. :) Glad to hear you are finally feeling better. Being pregnant is so hard!! Good luck- you look fantastic!

HEy cori. I copied that weather sidebar from you. I thought it might make some people gasp in the dead of winter.

I love those pictures of Sydney with her eyes closed. They will haunt her forever, though.

I enjoyed the pics and the comments too. Thanks for the laughs. PS Does Sydney have a mole on her foot like Jeff?

So fun Lauren! It is absolutely gorgeous there! You look adorable make up or not and I absolutely love that up shut comment. Too cute and why do they torture us by putting words like that in the movies. KILLS ME! Your kiddos look adorable. I can't believe how grown up Jordan looks. Take Care!

What's with your girls closing their eyes? I love that they both close their eyes for their different reasons...that is hilarious. I miss them!!!
