A True Family Photo

Now that is a family photo.  We used the letters of our last name -- which are situated high up in the living room -- and allowed our little ones to hold them for a precious birth announcement photos.  Jack was about a month old (maybe younger) for a sequence of photos for his birth announcement.  Betsy has a quiet smile about her and Mary Jane's hair is tossed about like she's her father!

Best photo ever... of course if my last name were Johnson, I might think otherwise.

Girls on the Farm

 A few weeks back the girls went to Underwood Farms and had a great time riding on the tractor as well as picking berries and sitting on pumpkins.  Tis the season for pumpkins!!!

 Jack is hidden underneath my sling.
OK, maybe too many berries for Betsy Jo Jo.

Too Cool for School

Nothing says Hollywood quite like Betsy and Mary Jane.

Note: it's been a good season for our rose bushes.  I really do need to take a picture of them as they have blossomed something fierce.  Ah, nothing like the smell of roses in the front yard.

Posing at Two Months Old!

That's our Jack!  Still not quite sleeping through the night.  Almost coming up with a smile.  So close.  But by next month, he'll hit all of those markers and I'll be sleeping much better.

Oops, Took a Month Off

Yeah, well, what are you going to do when you have three children under three?  Something has to give and for me it is blogging.  I think I'll toss in a few pics here just to keep the loyal bloggers happy.

Here in this picture Grampa Kendall helps Betsy climb a tree.  She wasn't sure if she wanted to or not but there she goes.

Operation: Tree Climb seems to be a success.  Never mind that she wanted down about 30 seconds later but she still loved it for the brief time she was up there.

Baby Jack stole the show in Fresno last weekend as everyone came over to look at the new baby boy.  He kept his eyes open and looked at all the family members.  Yes, some day you'll need to memorize the names.

Here Mary Jane is looking at a small dog.  She's not a big dog person -- Betsy has always been the bigger animal lover -- but she didn't run away this time.
