Anderson helps Owen keep his eye on the ball
Nothing is more "cool" than to see one of my older boys hanging out with the smaller boys. One of my favorite moments as a mom was looking out my kitchen window and seeing Anderson zip around the yard on his four wheeler with Payson in his lap. It took me a few moments to realize that it was Payson who was doing the steering. I should have known by the huge smile on Payson's face and by how slow Anderson was actually going.
I love this picture, but why oh why do my kids have such big heads!
I also love to see my little ones with their "big" cousins. Whether we are at Grandma's, Alicia's or my house Branson is the first person Payson looks for when he comes in. Before running off to play he has to find Branson (sleeping or awake, it doesn't matter), smoother him with kisses, and call him "Brancy."
Audrey so Smiley...Branson the Serious
Although we have yet to get a "great" picture of Audrey and Branson together, I am trying my darndest. When Heather and I were Seniors in High School they asked everyone to turn in their baby pictures. We really wanted to submit a photo of the two of us when we were younger, it made sense...we were always together. We searched for weeks and all we could find was a lousy picture of Heather and another one of our cousins in their carseats and me five feet away crawling off the table. I vowed then and there that my kids would have pictures with their cousins.
