Just Another Day...

I LOVE this picture. The girls were watching a video and they crawled on the couch to watch together. Unfortunately, this isn't "the normal". Usually they are arguing that they are touching each other. :) I love that Libby has her Grandpa Tucker's touch, too...has to be looking right at the camera. There's no catching either of those two off guard. They have a sixth sense when that camera is on them.

Sleeping Beauties

We usually find Libby sprawled out on her bed with NO covers on, so when I saw her completely hiding under her "space ship" blanket, I just HAD to snap this picture.

And here is Grace looking so peaceful as she sleeps all curled up in the corner of her crib. This is a classic Tucker sleeping position at this age. So sleepy!

Potty Play

Libby decided to show me what a big girl she was...NOT! She is actually only playing with this because Grace was and she just HAD to join the fun!!!

Here is Grace trying to figure what in the world Libby is doing.

Now she thinks she might have the hang of it. Hopefully she'll have the "hang of it" still when it's time to actually train her to use this crazy contraption...a.k.a. potty.

Kisses from Grace

You're Fired!


This...is our friend Ollie. He was a toy, of which Chris enjoyed as a child, we saved from the salvage pile when Chris's parents were "de-junking". After getting him home, Libby found that he was fun, but he also liked to flip alot, causing her to flip too. Now, we are in the "de-junking" process. Since Ollie can tend to be dangerous, daddy thought he would "sneak" him to the burn pile. Enter mommy and Libby into the picture. As we are taking trash to daddy so he can burn it, mommy checks to make sure that a box that she hasn't seen is a "fire" box. Ollie is inside. Libby sees Ollie. She immediately puts down the pile she is carrying and runs upstairs crying. I ask her what is wrong to which she replies, "I don't want Ollie to be fired!" So, Libby "sneaks" daddy and saves Ollie! Today, she has been almost glued to his back...well, except for the times he's, well, flipped her off.

Flat Bra

Libby enjoys exercising with me so I always make sure to invite her when I do it at home. Tonight I asked and she said she would like to exercise. Well, she was in her underwear only so I asked her if that was going to wear. She told me that it was what she was going wear and that she had a flat bra on because she had flat boobs. Then she went on to explain that she had Noah and the flood and God on her flat bra. What?!?
