Impromptu Ballerina

A few mornings ago I got Indie dressed for the day and then she went over to play by her bedroom window. I couldn't resist and grabbed the camera. I even edited the first half of these I loved them so much. I find her a wee bit irresistible.

The one above of her looking down her shirt is one of my favorites.
The rest are unedited extras. I love them, too. Pretty much I like all pictures with her in them. I'm a little biased that way :)
And she likes shoes and likes for everyone to have shoes on. She will also go barefoot, but does not like to have on socks and no shoes. It's all or nothing.

Starting out 2014

New Year's Eve 2014.
We had just gotten home from second Christmas in Houston the day before, and after weeks of crazy {fun} holiday celebrations we decided to just hang around the house and assemble the monstrosity of a castle Santa brought Knox {per his request}. 
Knox had asked for a castle with a lot of knights and canons and dragons. He got it. Chris and I got 290 piece puzzle to figure out. Chris set up the GoPro to time lapse the set up. I haven't seen nit yet, but hopefully at some point we'll have it put into a quick video to share.

Turn around for a SECOND and this girl will not be where you left her.

A little while after midnight Knox abandoned his video game and crawled onto the floor {on purpose} to go to sleep with some soldier toys in hand. Indie discovered the sleeping beast and decided to take advantage. Here she is patting his head after slipping the soldier's motorcycle from one hand.

When he relaxed again, she reached around and stole the soldier.
Sneaky, sneaky Indiana....

First day of 2014! Playing around with my NEW {birthday} camera!

The finished product.

I have to say, that although it is bigger than any single plastic toy we have let into the house thus far, it is SUPER cool. Playmobil is awesomely realistic and very detail oriented. 

Just snuggling Emma and watching tv...

...with Tomasina.

Indie got a new doll {she LOVES dolls} from YaYa wearing a dress that matches an outfit Knox picked out for her over the summer. I'll have to get a better picture of them together one day when it's warm enough se doesn't need a sweater covering up her outfit. Also, maybe when she isn't carrying around lime salt.

Our sweet baby friend, Margaret

Chris and I made Indie a kitchen for Christmas. I have been super pumped with how it turned out!


Uncle Aaron came to spend some time with us {Knox} before he left again for San Diego.

Before dismantling the tree I decided to capture a few ornaments. I put more of my old ornaments on the tree this year than I have in the past. And Knox's home made ornament numbers are growing. My favorite tree yet!

Playing Just Dance on the wii with Cailey. Watching these kids dance with it is hilarious.

The Jabberwocky. January 10th.
Earlier in the day he laid in a mud puddle in the street. Apparently jabberwockies love water, no matter how filthy.

A half dirty dog with Wilson.

Some more camera play.

Laughing at Mrs. Kelly.

Knox and Ella.

She just played in the bird bath {that the dogs use as a water dish}.
