When Daddy is Left to His Own Devices

One of Kris' main jobs in our house is keeping us in good humor. He can often be heard laughing at himself, making silly noises, making jokes to get a good laugh. He loves practical jokes, and we love him for it. He's almost always in a good mood, and if he ever finds himself in a bad mood, he'll do something to amuse himself and pull himself out of it.

Exhibit A 
(She looks suspiciously proud of her ensemble.)

 "Daddy did it!"

 I'm beginning to suspect Susanna got his sense of humor.

Pumpkin Patch 2014

I really am trying with every fiber of my being to capture memories and write them down. They're just happening so fast! I am proud to report, however, that we did make it for our annual pumpkin patch visit and picture session. The results:

Sweet little faces peaking through the background never gets old to me. I love it every. single. year.

These blue eyes also get me every single year.

Susanna loved every second of the pumpkin patch (that I wasn't trying to get her to be still for a picture). This gal is the belle of the ball wherever we go anyway. The tutu sent us over the top in adoration.

The best I could get of the three stooges. Luke seems to think rabbit ears are hilarious, no matter how many times we assure him they are not.

This kid and his lips. I wish it was possible to really show what they look like live. When he's telling a story, it's all I can do not to grab his little face and smush his lips with mine. Sometimes I fail to restrain myself.

Eli has taken to posing with his face propped on his hand, kind of like how girls pose with their hand on their hips. It suits his serious face...

...which is only for pictures. This is the real Eli.

A family photo. A real, everybody's looking (almost) family photo. Nothing short of a miracle, folks.

Belle of the ball, I tell you.
