The girls have been on a leprechaun kick ever since St. Patrick's Day when they saw a Disney movie, "Luck of the Irish." I said, "Did you guys know Grandma Tillman is from Ireland?" and Alyssa said, "She's a leprechaun?!" so I said, "No, but she was born in Ireland." Katie said, "Does she just eat Irish cheese all the time?" I don't know where that came from, but I said, "No I don't think so," and Alyssa said, "Does she do Irish dance?"

Although Grandma Tillman probably could do a mean Irish jig, I have never seen her.

Photo Night

Alyssa's choice for a Sunday night activity was having a family photo shoot. So we had fun making use of the timer, and Bailey set up this pose. We thought that the first four heads in the row really looked like two sets of twins.

Cael Discovers Swinging

Cael has four loves: balls, magnets, containers with lids, and now. . . swinging.

Cam's "Red" Birthday

Cam's "Red" Birthday

Scary, aren't they?

I am posting this photo at the demand of those pictured. . . against my better judgement.
Explanation: Katie and Alyssa discovered a bag of a few singlets left over from when Brandon coached Orem Junior High. Now they suit up every night and wrestle best two out of three take-downs to see who chooses the bedtime story.
Is it just me, or does this photo bring to mind the phrase, "I'm an animal!"

Clean again -- time for presents

Cake -- Before and After

Cael's Birthday

Here is the official record of Cael's messy first birthday. I was one second too late when I started filming, and I missed when he tried to grab the "ball" to play with it. But this first frame is his confused reaction. He just sat with his hands paused in the air for a few seconds. It took great persuasion to get him to attempt another touch.

pictures with Grandpa John

Here's a fun picture of Grandpa and Cael. Their bum left shoulders are both improving.
