When Collin was 6 months old he had tubes put in his ears to cut down on the constant ear infections. We tested his hearing several times, and the results were never very conclusive. In January, Collin had a second set of tubes put in (the first set fell out). Since his second set of tubes his speech has increased and his first words was "Cheeeese." It sounded more like eeeeezzzze, and that's what he is saying in this picture.
Tess was helping me make sugar cookies and wanted to eat the dough. I asked her not to because I am a raw egg weirdo. She thought the next best thing would be to eat the flour we were using to dust the counter tops with. The funny thing is that she didn't think I knew what she was doing. Little did she know the flour face was a dead give away.
I know this photo probably isn't funny to anyone but me. This is the sad face of a bored little boy. I get to see this face daily. I laugh because he could have just eaten lunch with Buzz Lightyear, crossed a few rivers with Indiana Jones, sledded down Mt. Fuji and he will still be bored. He sure has that sad puppy look down!
This is a photo of my sister, Cherie, on Christmas morning. She has always been a ham in front of the camera. I'm not even sure if she can take a serious photo!
