family resemblance


{ Uncle Daniel and his carbon copy of a niece }

This is Uncle Daniel. He is not usually this grumpy looking. In fact he is really quite a nice fellow. And my word, does this picture ever crack me up. I predict it is destined to become a family classic and talked about for years to come. And is it just me or do they with the dead serious glare and the identical hair curling up at their ears, look alike? Uncle Daniel and Uncle Tommy Jay, who is also a really nice guy, came to visit us last week, and unlike the unfriendly vibe the above picture gives off, they had her in stitches half the time and all get along grandly. We even found her snug as a bug, inbetween the uncles at 4 am in the morning when David went into the guestroom/nursery in the morning to check on her because we hadn't heard peep from her all night. Apparently she had woke up sometime in the middle of the night and called out for Mommy, who was sound asleep in the next room over. Uncle Daniel (who, like the rest of her uncles, is a softy) went and got her and she fell right back to sleep cuddled between he and Uncle Tommy Jay until morning. Super sweet.


{ and a Daddy and Uncle who play tea party,
now if thats serisouly not the cuest thing you have ever seen?}

too precious! miss annabelle is getting SO big..and cuter and cuter each day! sounds as though you have had a whirlwind of traveling and excitement. oh how elizabeth would be enthralled by riding on a train--one of her all time favorite things these days! chelle, thanks for your thoughts on my "training/discipline" post. it is so encouraging to know there are others out there working hard to think about and practice Biblical training and discipline...which is SUCH hard work but so profitable in the end!

Chelle,
I love that picture! the same expression and hair...priceless. The tea party must have been a grand affair as well.
How are things with you? Any new projects you might be working on? Any new recipes to share? I would just love to hear about anything. Wishing you and yours well.

SO SO SO CUTE.
Loved the picture with all the boys at the tea party. Tell David pinkies up... :)

What a blessing for Anabelle to be surrounded by men, who are not trying to fit the bill of a gender, but showing her how to play, how to be tender, and of course how to giggle. What great godly example she will have in her daddy when she starts to look on her own. Not that it will ... EVER happen, but David is depositing so much in her charachter no doubt!!

Love you guys.

This is so wonderful. They are like two peas in a pod!! I think the picture is more about hey why are you disturbing us rather than being grumpy twins.
This is such a wonderful entry thank you as always for sharing.

I miss you on spaces but this blog is cute too!!
Hope you guys are having a great week and have a great weekend when it comes!

lolly lisa said...

Hello friend!

Your blog looks great! Although is there a way to keep your old banner? I really loved all of the lovely photos...

Speaking of lovely photos, all of the pictures from your trip and the uncles visiting are so sweet! As everyone else has said, I can't get over how cute and old Annabelle is! And it really sounds like she has those uncles and her daddy wrapped around her little finger :)

And congratulations on your friends wedding plans! How lucky is she to have your help in planning everything- so far all of your ideas are beautiful!

And what is this I hear about new banners? Something for your Etsy shop, I hope?
