Wednesday is Baby Day

Thought I'd share a photo of my big babies first this week. This was the first picture I took of the four of them this Christmas. And it came out well! That doesn't happen often. There's usually a lot of "photo malarkey" going on!

See what I mean?!

Charlotte & Elijah both really like the toy Uncle Kevin is opening for his "girl". Joe & Jo look ready to jump right in and help him out, don't they?

Two of the small ones are getting a ride in this shot ~ Elijah thought his Uncle Mark made a great rocking horse ~ back and forth the went ~ Mark's spine being the rocker! Looks like Charlotte is ready to give her Daddy's face a big hug!

Arms full of love!
No, I am not this strong. Joe is holding Penelope up.
I love this photo!!

Isn't this a sweet baby girl!
She just loved holding onto plastic ornaments this year.

He likes to taste test his toys.
I wonder what a lime green wooden bead tastes like?

Speaking of taste tests ~ just like her momma ~ she loves black olives.
She even likes to eat them. Check out the cheeks!

We tried several times to get a photo of the
small babies together.
They don't like to look at the camera at the same time.
(Elijah looks about done here!)

They don't like to sit still either ~ right Jacqi?

The easiest way is to just put them together ourselves.
This photo is the one I sent out in our
Christmas cards this year.
We are so very blessed!
By babies big and small!

What a truly delightful post! It was great to see all of the pictures of your "big" kids and the kidlets, too. The best picture was your smiling, loving face with all 3 of the grands...beautiful! Black olives-how funny! Aren't you so glad you started this you can easily go back and review the year and have so mnay memories recorded!
Wishing you the Happiest of New Years my sweet friend! May God continue to bless you always.

What a delightful way for me to start my day ~ seeing your adorable babies and grandbabies! The pictures are great and photo malarkey is so much fun! They are some of my favorite shots!

The little one looking at the tree is award-winning... the little guy licking the toy reminds me of my Abbey, only she licked people!... and the beautiful curly girl could even get me to like black olives!

Those little faces you added to your cards are precious ~ is there anything cuter this side of heaven?

But my very favorite... Sweet Marie and her treasures! :)

Thanks so much for sharing!

It's just too sweet, all that grand baby goodness!

I can hardly get a picture of my two kids, much less get three to look in the same direction at a time. They are great pictures and thank you for sharing them.

I really enjoyed seeing everyone. You have the cutest little baby faces...all of them. Everyone looks full of joy and full of a little bit of malarkey as you say...ha...I love that word, my dad would say that and tweak my nose at the same time.
