Baby, its {Funny} Outside

The other day I got all the kids dressed up warm to play outside. And me being the new good mom didn't complain one bit the whole 20 minutes it took to get them dressed. AND I didn't even complain when Morgan was done playing after only 5 minutes. Lets just see if I can keep this up.

And the kids thought they were so funny pulling their weird faces. Oakley was having a hard time pulling her funny faces with mittens on. She usually stretches out her mouth with her fingers. And Paige was just more interested in eating snow.

I just love my Hoard.

You're much better than me. I would have complained the whole time.
That's my biggest complaint about playing in the snow. Soooo much work and they're always done in less time than it takes to get them ready.

I think you need to be real with yourself - your new goal for 2010 is great and everything, but you're already a GREAT mom. Seriously. You guys are always doing fun things with your kids, you have the funnest parties, you make it to almost every family function, etc. I'm just saying, I like your new goal, but I think you're already there.

I love Oakley trying to pull her face. That is Avie's funny face of choice as well. And I'm with Jamie - you are already Mother of the Year every year as far as I'm concerned. Cute pic. Xo

Cute pictures! Every time I see your bunch all together, I can't help thinking what a fun family it would be to grow up in. From the mothering perspective, I'm in awe of how you manage with the weight of responsibilty that would come with having them so close together, but so much fun, and so adorable, and so rewarding I am sure. I haven't bundled up my two to go outside yet this winter. I can't bear the thoughts of being cold.

I think Oakley makes me laugh the most - I didn't get what she was doing until I read your explanation!

Although Morgan sticking her tongue out {and licking her coat} is pretty funny too!

Pretty sure you can't be a better mom than you already are...but whatever! I love this picture, the backdrop is gorgeous. Man I miss those mountains! And isn't it sad that we've never seen Paige and Morgan face to face? I'm pretty sure the last time we saw you was right before you had them. Seriously...how sad.

They are so cute! I love that Oakley can't think of any other funny faces. And WHY is it that kids get bored after such a short time outside? Drives me nuts.
