I originally had visions of dressing our three girls in cute white cable knit sweaters, kahki pants, and little girly hiking boots-- oh, and matching pig-tails. I'd bring them to the beach, a peaceful drive of course, and I'd set up something formal-- they'd be smiling as if totally restful, looking longingly toward the horizon, thinking deep 3 and 4 year old thoughts all the while. Needless to say, I didn't even get as far as "Go get your sweaters on." It was a dress-yourself free-for-all in the house this morning, after which Erin and I toted the girls, including Althea, Erin's cutest-ever 1-year-old, out to Devin's camp site for some Christmas card hopefuls. Here are the results. Let me know which one you like the best, if any.
And here are lovely Erin and Thea-Thea, which sounds like "FiFi" when my girls say her name. It was a beautiful day for a walk, and Thea's a good little tree-climber!
