4th folder, 4th picture tag

I got tagged by my little sister Eve. I decided to check out what I actually did have in my fourth folder fourth picture.. and it turned out to be this darling one I took about a week ago. I was needing to post some pictures of my darling kiddo's anyway. So, there you go!

Max has been requesting 'faux hawks' lately. He see's me doing Sohvi's hair for pre-school, and of course b
ecause he wants everything she gets, he had to get his hair done too. It was a gorgeous day, Lucy was napping, so we went outside and snapped away. The biggest shocker was that Max actually held STILL. Sohvi is great at posing, she'll pose all day in front of a mirror just for kicks, but Max can't be bothered with it normally.

I'd better throw in a few others while I'm at it. Sin
ce who knows how long its going to take me to get my blog all decorated, organized and pretty. Its not really too high on the priority list right now.

Here are Sohvi and Lucy in their inadvertently matched dresses that I shamelessly took advantage of. Both were given to me, I swear. Not that I haven't put them in matching dresses on purpose before... It just so happens this is not the case this time. (and it was only once before!) I do love a sailor dress, though it has nothing to do with my love of sailing.

Here is the cutest pout you will ever see. (hey, its my kid, I can be as prejudiced as I want)

Actually Lucy is a really happy kid most of the time, usually she's grinning more like this one. My kids are my favorite. They're awesome little boogers. And how can I NOT think they are the cutest, funniest and best mini people ever.

My own little narcissistic corner of the blogiverse where I can spout whatever drivel comes to mind.

Hah, with a title that vague, I can blog about anything! But since my life pretty much revolves around my family and my art, chances are that's what you'll get.

I've debated long and hard about blogging... obviously it won out, but why?? (I'm sure you are all wondering with baited breath.) Because of course the mundane details of my life will be of obvious concern and great merit to all within the click of my keyboard. The funny thing is though, I really DO like to know about other people and see their unique take on life. Somewhere lost in the complexity of our deoxyribonucleic
acid strands there is a specific genome that will someday be coded "the nosy gene". You know, the one that likes to look at car wrecks and peeks out the window when the neighbors are fighting.. So though I am certainly no oracle, I figure if you don't want to read it you won't. I claim no sage like wisdom, just my own stubborn and sometimes rather opinionated thoughts. You know; brain vomit.

The other rather large obstacle is that I am very lazy. And blogs are lots of maintenance. So if my blogs are rather sporadic in nature, well... you've been forewarned.
