Nikita and I arrived home at 2am, after 6 days in Guatemala.  That will be a few posts all their own, but today I was just happy to be home with my kiddos. 
I put Kimberly's hair up because she was hot and sweaty with it hanging in her face.
And Amelia really needs a trim, but it was easier just to pull her hair back for now.

Sunny was looking left out so I put her hair up too...

Then Leif and Micah wandered over to see what was going on...

When Jamie saw me looking at him, he nearly took off out the door.

Nine attempts and not one photo of them all smiling together!  They were too busy being silly!

My Favorite Child

Every now and then one of my teenagers will accuse me of having a favorite child. 

I will admit there is a certain one who tends to be in a lot of photos.
However, it is usually because one of his siblings is having some fun with him.

1 of 9 teaching him how to swim.
2 of 9 teaching him how to sweep a floor. 

3 of 9 teaching him to wait patiently for Mom.

4 of 9 just being a wonderful big sister.

5 of 9 being a pillow.

6 of 9 showing him how to figure out a puzzle.

7 of 9 showing him how to hang out on Mom and Dad's bed with some videos.

9 of 9 teaching him how to share toys.

Dad of 9 teaching him how to play in the rain....

And they say I have a favorite??

Even the chickies love 8 of 9!!
