This is story time. Nora is not normally involved, as she eats books.

You'll note that our children are the more attractive ones. A two year comparison can be made here.
Lucy, Samantha, and Zoe Ralston enjoyed free, late-night HBO episodes of My Little Pony.
This is a photo featuring Grandpa Terry's gut, his wife, and his immediate offspring.
Chrissy enjoyed screaming at the babies. She didn't scream anything coherent. Just horrid, guttural screams that seemed to last for hours.
I believe Lucy is contemplating the acquisition of Kim's wallet.

Our youngest was an apple. Or a strawberry. Or a chili. I think it was probably an apple, since it had a worm on it, but she's shaped more like a chili, and she tastes more like provolone.
Lucy was an African version of Cruella DeVille. Has no one else heard of "101 Wildebeasts"?
Samantha pranced about as an adorable invertebrate.
Superdad. Delivering chilis to the hungry children of the world.
There was actually a version that involved red jocky shorts instead of running shorts, but we figured that if Dad's superness was making us uncomfortable, it would likely make the neighborhood children and their parents uncomfortable as well.
It was a theme. All things from nature. An apple, a ladybug, a zebra, and a creepy doofus.

Is the whole world ill right now? Holy cow pox. At least one member of our family has been dripping something from somewhere since July.

We have three very cute girls.
One of them doesn't mind having her hands and feet superglued to the walls.
Lucy assumed Dad was looking and launched herself off the top bunk toward him. Luckily, she didn't sustain a head injury because the impact was absorbed by her front teeth. One of her incisors did bleed and move back a smidge. The dentist said over the phone that it might heal on its own if we leave it alone. We're hoping so, because we hadn't bothered to put Lucy on our dental plan.
Speaking of dental plans, we've been married 5 years as of yesterday. I really really like that Becky. She's very nice and pretty.

I think Sam kinda looks like a little Nephite here.

We're trying to get Lucy off the bottle. When we just took it away, she refused to drink to the point where she got really constipated, so we relented. If you look close you can see a lovely bottle rash around her lips. I got her to use this twirly straw the other day, but that only lasted about an hour. Maybe I should just start an IV to keep her hydrated.
This was supposed to be a meatloaf.
This was supposed to be a picture of something other than Sam's finger.
This was a very pleasant activity for our middle daughter, until she stood up and walked around on the carpet with her toes curled under.
This was supposed to be a thawing chicken, but those scheming naked babies are always running around and pooping in any body of water they can find.

Samantha received her first haircut from a professional haircutting person. This individual took quite a bit longer to complete the task than would generally be considered acceptable, but Sam is very pleased with the results.
