Some times there is no time to find the camera to capture the moment. For that I'm grateful for the (usually) good quality of my blackberry camera. Here are a few of what I've found on my phone in the last little while.....
Halle and Carson at T-ball. They are both so stinkin' cute get up there to bat. Coach/uncle Dale told Carson to watch the ball so he could catch it, Carson said I can't watch it when you throw it behind me!
We took the kids over to a local pet store that had Scales and Tales giving demonstrations all day long. They had some of the coolest creatures from a horn lizzard thing to a comono dragon. Plus some HUGE snakes. Avery wanted a picture with the huge python, but she wasn't strong enough to hold its 90+ pounds, so JD strapped the creature around his neck and Avery back into him to pose for the picture. As if on queue I said "Oh, Avery, where's that things head?" and the animal handler, not skipping a beat put his finger in Avery's hair. Well, she scream bloddy murder, the entire store broken into laughter and I almost peed my pants. All the comotion upset the snake and he took the biggest crap on JD. It was pure comedy.
The other day I was trying to get the kids out the door when I heard music coming from the living room and could see Carson's little feet stick out from the side of the sofa. He had turned on the radio and was listening to classical music. I smiled and went about my buisness. A few minutes later I hear Halle say, "Carson, dance with me," and he gets up and they start waltzing across the living room floor. Absolutely adorable.
The other day Carson was being too quiet so I called him to my room where I was doing laundry to ask what he was up to. He answered,with a big sigh, that he just needed some alone time. I obliqed and went back to the clothes. But then I started hearing a tune of "I'm dreaming of a White Washer" being sung in the laundry room. I found Carson with his head stuck in the glass of the front load washer singing his heart out. He stayed there for 20 minutes.
