January Photo Dump

Another month has come and gone!  I had good intentions of doing more posts, but that just didn't happen.  So I'm just doing a photo dump.  I've tried to put them in some sort of order, but right in the middle of uploading them, the entire blogger layout changed and I've been having some technical difficulties. Anyhoo....here goes:
Margo loving on Annie.  Margo has a new bedtime buddy!  Annie has recently started sleeping on Margo's bed. For the longest time, she wouldn't even go in Margo's room.  The other night Margo was in bed reading books to Annie!

New Year's Eve at Grandma's.  All the cousins had fun in the backyard! 
Time to roast some marshmallows!

Sweet Avery
M&L are selling Girl Scout cookies.  They love the GS uniforms that Aunt Catherine gave them for their AG dolls!
Madeline and Margo in the tub!  Margo sure does love her "sissy".
Margo is still loving her Bitty Baby that Santa brought.  She takes her everywhere.  She even took her to dance class last week.  On a recent trip to the gym, Margo left her baby in the van.  The sitter was asking where was her baby!.  I think it was the first time Margo had not taken the baby with her since she got it.
I was just playing around with my camera one night....not the best pic of the girls.  I hope to get some good outside shots with the warm weather that's headed our way :)
They wanted to do a pyramid shot.

The girls and I like to watch American Idol.  Margo had to get the AI microphone so she could sing.
Then they each had to take turns doing their best imitation of AI contestants.
Lydia's turn....
The progression of a spoiled, sleepy dog.....

Annie always makes us laugh when she starts to fall asleep sitting up.

And finally, she decides to just collapse.  Such a sweet doggie and  good photography practice for me.  She doesn't seem to mind.
More Margo and her Bitty Baby (she has named her Avery....or at least that name has stuck for a few weeks now).  In the beginning, the baby's name changed daily.
Lydia is playing Parks & Rec basketball.  The practices and schedule has been kind of wacky with last minute cancellations, etc. but she's hanging in there.
David and I had a nice 24hr. getaway to Ocean Isle Beach a few weeks ago.  He ran the OIB 1/2 Marathon.
The weather was actually pretty mild for the second week in January.  We were able to enjoy a couple of meals in peace and the ocean front view from our hotel room.  Thanks, Grandma & Grandpa for watching the girls!

Crossing the finish line!  David said the wind made the run a bit challenging, but he powered through!

Sunrise at OIB the morning of his race.

For Your Entertainment

In December the girls had parent observation week at dance lessons. They are all doing so well. Enjoy the show!

God Bless....

I snapped this photo before Margo went to bed while she was saying her prayers. It is so precious. She says, "God Bless Mommy, Daddy, Madeline, Lydia, Annie,.... " and then on to every other family member, friend, neighbor, toy, etc. She usually ends with, "And God Bless Margo!"

I have been taking lots of pics with my new camera and hope to upload more later this week.
