Oh, What Games They Play

November 3, 2008 by Michelle

The wee one are getting to the age where I sometimes allow them to play by themselves for a few minutes at a time while I get things done — make dinner, clean, do laundry, grab the mail, and so forth. When I go in search of them at the completion of my tasks, I sometimes happen upon interesting sights.

Unfortunately, I’ve only captured a few on film but, I still want to know where this creativity comes from.

It’s a car. No, a space ship. No, an elevator. Oh, I know! It’s a race car. Hmmm. I give up!

If you’re happy and you know it, clap your hands! Wait, clap your feet? Why are you wearing socks on your hands? OHHHHHH we’re cheering for the Vikes! Ok, go for it!

Say chese! Err, ahhh?

It’s pictures like this that remind me that I need to carry my camera more often. Oh, and keep it charged. Like my iPod, it does me no good when the batteries are out!


  • Cookie

    Looks like they are having fun. And so far it looks like just good “clean” fun!

  • Jori-O

    sweet kiddos!

  • Sydney

    Oh my goodness, that last picture is priceless. Good for blackmail when he’s older!

  • Jeff

    There’s my girl… GO VIKES INDEED! I bet it was her that made them win this weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

    Great pics!

  • Michelle

    Cookie – Ohhhh that was punny! Love it!

    Jori-O – Welcome! And thanks ๐Ÿ™‚ Here’s hoping they stay that way.

    Sydney – There are pleeeeenty of pictures of him for blackmail when he’s older. Of course if I haven’t printed or filed any of them by then, it’ll all go to waste!

    Jeff – Yup, that’s her. And if you ask her who her favorite team, she dutifully yells the TWINS! And you have no idea how torqued a three year old can be that she doesn’t have a Vikings shirt until you’ve seen this one. Luckily, I realized that Mister Man had outgrown one of his and it mostly fits her ๐Ÿ˜‰

    So fun to catch these moments!! Cute pictures and your kids are so beautiful!

    See ya – Kellan

  • Karen

    Your kids are the cutest. It’s good to know that kids are kids all around.

  • Michelle

    Kellan – Definitely fun. Although they break out the bad kid “cheeeeeese face” whenever they see the camera, so it’s a bit of a challenge ๐Ÿ™‚ Thank you!

    Karen – Thanks! And yep, kids are kids are kids.
