Those of you who've been to our house know that it has a built-in race-track. The kiddos take full advantage of the set-up and race frequently. I had today off from work and grabbed the camera so everyone could feel like they were part of the action.

First, meet the competitors:

Here's Lexi:

And Cameron (AKA "Lightning")

Lexi pulls ahead initially...
(She likes to jump the gun and starts running when she hears "ready")

Cameron takes back the lead quickly... he's very competitive with his sister!
(This often results in "crashes")

A couple more just for fun...

(They take their racing seriously!)

I still can't believe Lexi is RUNNING! For the longest time, she refused to let go of my hand and when she finally did she's racing her brother within days! What happened to my baby?

Fun in the snow

As you might have guessed by the title, we got a LOT of snow recently and while I slave away at work all day (after commuting WAY too long in the white fluffy stuff) my kids are at home playing in it. (All 3 of them!) Before you enjoy the pictures as I did when I got home, please know that I already reprimanded my oldest child (Jon) for the lack of hats...

To Satisfy the Peanut Gallery

A few people have hinted that we haven't posted any pictures of the kiddos recently. We haven't really done anything exciting. Lexi's teeth are really showing now and she has mastered the art of running. Cameron uses every spare minute he has "practicing" to make sure he stays faster than she is. What can I say, he likes to chase her. Here are a few pictures of our resident Princess in action:

(Don't let the tutu fool you- with a big brother like Cameron, she knows how to be tough!)

Cameron has been racing around so fast that it's hard to get any pictures. Here he is just before bed:

I'll try to be better about posting pictures more regularly. My apologies to our fans! :)
