With summer winding down (we go back to school this week), but the heat still around, I loved looking at this entry from a few years ago. Makes me want to go out and start another water fight.
Aubrey was just a little thing and none of my kids were in school. In some ways, it was a simpler time. In some ways, it was NOT. I still had three in diapers and I was not getting any sort of regular sleep. We were all in a fairly small three bedroom apartment. Aubrey slept in my craft room.
On the other hand, I want to pick up Griffin and squeeze his fat middle and cover Aubrey's cheeks in kisses. I love the simple relationship of Griffin and Max in the last picture, something that has long gone, I'm afraid.

Just Sharing Some Photos (with the inevitable commentary)
Griffin, why does he have that binki in his mouth? He supposed to only use one while sleeping. I started this hose-fight. It was hot!Xander, spraying the hose. Notice how he's not even looking at the water. :)
Griffin and Max splashing in the puddle on the sidewalk that always forms just right there. Usually, we try to avoid it.
Griffin looking quite pleased with being wet. Also notice Xander running away in the background.
She's waving hi in this one. Also, there are spit bubbles. She's getting drooly and likes to lick thinks, like shirt shoulders and forearms. If I hold her facing outward, I get copious amounts of drool down my arm. But isn't she sweet? We're thinking she'll probably have blue eyes, but more like the gray-blue of Maxton's.
Maxton, looking quite pleased with himself. My SIL said that in this photo, he looks like the Henry side and I agree. Such a handsome dude!
Aww, she is just so cute! She's getting cubby. I love this blanket my MIL made for her. She really thinks the camera is bizarre. Everytime I get it out, she looks at it like it's some alien object, which I'm sure it is to her.
Here are Griffin and Maxton. After a spell of hating to have his picture taken, he has lapsed into wanting his picture taken all the time, usually with Griffin or Aubriana.
