We spent our morning with Austin and Anna Liz playing at our house. After they left, the boys and I headed outside for a little more snow fun. Connor and Kyle were fascinated with the icicles that formed on the bushes. They wanted to pull them off and break them all apart. They had a good time doing that, digging through the snow, and riding scooters. We did not stay out too long since it was already nap time, but I did take a few pictures (of course).
I debated whether to even keep these next few photos or just delete them as soon as I took them. And, I debated on whether or not to post them (especially the first one). But, I've been thinking about the fact that I am rarely in photos. I am the one with the camera. I shoot manual 99% of the time, so don't hand the camera off to someone else much at all. And, I typically don't like how I look in pictures (who does!?), so I just am not in many pictures. I want that to change. I want to set the self timer and get more pictures with the boys. I want to hold the camera out and take pictures of me with the boys. I want to make sure that I am in pictures with the boys. The pictures don't have to be perfect or beautiful, but I want the boys to see me at this age, this time, this place in our lives. So, here are some "selfies" that I took of myself and of me with each of the boys.
Kyle did not want to participate!
Happy Snow Day #2! I hope you have had a great week! Connor goes back to school tomorrow. I have really enjoyed having both of my boys home, so I hate to send him back, but I am looking forward to a little time out of the house since we have been cooped up for the last couple of days.
Have a great weekend!
