The Girl Loves to Color ... Herself

Since it was the third or fourth time she's done this today, I decided it was time for some pictures.

While I AM considering another tattoo, I will never tattoo my hands. With Jo, it's just a starting point.

So excited about her "secret."

Show me your hands.

The girl is definitely a lefty - hence the right hand having so much more color on it.

"Oh....I love life."

"Aren't I cute?"

The upside is that these are, of course, washable markers. That's also a downside when your daughter sucks her finger and thumb....And has a snotty nose...

Catch Up Part 1

So it's been a while since I posted, and I'm going to change that.

Let's start our catch-up with Thanksgiving.

This year we went to East Texas to visit both sets of grandparents. We stayed with Allen's parents and drove over to my parents to visit them.

When we first got to my parents house, Dad was up on a ladder putting up their outside Christmas lights. Jo just had to help Papa - especially since there was a ladder involved.

Eventually, she made it inside to see Granny.

Phoebe was thrilled to play with her cousins. They all went outside for batting practice. She got her timing down and managed to hit a few pretty far. Don't worry. It was a wiffle ball. Otherwise the cars would not have been parked there.

Jo enjoyed spending time with Allen's parents what with the doting and attention and love and candy and food and all. (Jo is eating a piece of candy cane in this picture.)

You could say the same for Phoebe.
