the solution to the energy crisis



These were all taken between 12:45pm and 1:42pm today. In just under an hour, Evie changed outfits and hairstyles three times, entertained me with her kung-fu impressions/dance routine, ran in circles around the living room/dining room divider wall, 'read' a book (I had to be quick with that photo, she only sits for seconds at a time), played dress-up and tea party...which means that every dress and dish she owns ended up on the playroom floor simultaneously...,drew pictures with her big brother (unfortunately this requires too much supervision on my part and I forgot to bring my camera to the table...I left her alone with markers once and well, let's just say--she's quick, and I won't make that mistake again!)

Now just I need to figure out how to bottle it!...if I just wasn't so exhausted...

She is SO beautiful! Just love her beauty when she enters the room. She seems fun, fun, fun!

Have I mentioned lately that I love you and your family? Because I do. I'm surprised you got that many pictures in between all the costume changes! Although, I was able to get Evie to "read" long enough to take her picture...it was Twilight though, so I'm sure it captured her attention just fine! (just kidding. sort of.)

I totally understand having a whirlwind child! Thank goodness Kelsie has slowed down some. There WILL come a time when your walls will be marker and crayon free, your dishes WILL remain whole and you WILL be able to sleep through the night. Honest. I just don't know when.

ahhh yes, I know these days all to well. except mine have a little more testoterone and my little energizer is named Cooper!

Great job taking pictures of it all though! I have figured out that taking pictures of the craziness helps me stay more calm and patiend about it all.

She's adorable!

yeah, if we let her and Owen run around in big hamster wheels, we could really have something there.
