We tackled this project early in the morning. Right after breakfast. I promised chocolate to all who cooperated. There were tears and whines and grumbles and finally everyone was wrestled into fancy clothing. And then there was a dead camera battery. Awesome. You would have thought ultra organized me would have thought to charge the camera battery. We had a back up plan. Mike used his phone camera and I used the Ipad. After 25 min we had not 1 good shot of all 4 kids. I tossed all the Samuel crying shots and the Israel punching Nairi shots. This is what was left.
Nairi is our fiercely independent I- can- do -everything- by- myself- kind- of- kid. She was the earliest walker, earliest potty trained, earliest to dress herself, earliest to be able to zip a jacket, and to ride a bike without training wheels ( just shy of 3 1/2!) etc. The other day she said " Look Mom! I can write my name!" She had written an N and an A. So I showed her how to do an I and R and 2 seconds later she could write her name. She is 3 1/2!!! She is very sharp. I think she might have Mike's smarts. :)

The day before Thanksgiving 2014. There was snow and snow and more snow. It finally stopped snowing around 4 or 5 am Thanksgiving day. Leaving us with over a foot of heavy wet snow.
