You Capture: Faces

So January was not really my month for blogging. Sorry about that. I haven't even participated in You Capture in forever and ever, but guess what? I am going to today. These are not all brand brand new, but they are all from January and I can't not share them. This is what we were doing this month.

...
Yesterday Clark told me he wanted to finger paint. I told him we didn't have finger paints but we had regular paint, would that be okay? Yes, that would be okay he decided.

You know, "to finger paint myself."

(Please notice the Peter Pan costume he is wearing. It's too small and pulling it over his head is becoming traumatic, but he still wants to wear it.)

...

Last week (the week before? have totally lost all sense of time) we had a pretend birthday party. Clark's idea. He was quite the host for his imaginary guests Mario, Ma-uigi, Bowser and Princess Peach. He even taught them robot lessons. We made paper party crowns.

That last Alice picture is my desktop background right now. I mean, come on.

I am hoping that posting pictures will get my feet wet and encourage me to write here more this month. I really do have things to say, it's just a matter of typing it all out.

Go visit Beth at I Should Be Folding Laundry to see more faces. Faces make me happy.

  1. I really like the last two pictures. I like how the one of Clark is just all about movement and your daughter is a doll!

  4. Everyone must be looking at this post right now because I can't see Alice's face on your blog or on flicker!!! However, I am smitten with Clark's top two pictures. They are just precious. We have some costumes that receive very similar treatment. My nine year old still occasionally squeezes into his Prince Phillip costume which he wore when he was 4. It was pretty big on him then, but since then, I've cut the neck slit because I was tired of trying to pry his head out of the costume when he finally wanted it off again. Ha ha ha. Great memories. I'll check back later so that hopefully I can catch a peek at this adorable Alice picture :)

  7. Such great captures! And I've been quite uninspired when it comes to blogging lately. Although you're a much better writer than I am!

  8. These are so great! Your little boy looks just like you (at least from pictures) and his expressions are priceless. And your little girl and her little round belly--just adorable.

  9. Oh Baby Peter Pan - the Baby Lost Boys would follow him anywhere.

    And forget it with Alice. That picture begs to be eaten.

  10. For heaven's sake Erin, if you aren't going to blog more then you at least owe us a weekly phone call. :)

  13. They are so, so cute.

    And you? You are a great mom. Finger painting in a Peter Pan outfit and make believe birthday parties? I hope I can be a cool mom like you. :) These are the things they will remember.

  14. Oh my gosh, Alice looks so old! She's been busy growing since I saw her in July! Tell her to stop!

    Love your photos and glad to see you participating AND blogging! :)

  15. I just wanna know where all these opinions on clothing come from in these rugrats. Levi is very into wearing coathangers and my sunglasses. The problem is that dramatic tears ensue whenever these items fall off (a lot).
    That last picture makes me want to squeeze Alice!!

  19. Oh, Erin...I've missed you. Your insights. Your humor. Your references to obscure musicals.

    And I've missed the photos of your adorable kids too...

    P.S. Your little boy is the perfect peter pan. :)
