The Squirmies

I tried to get the boys to sit still on the fireplace so I could snap a few shots. Being young (and being boys), they had a case of the squirmies so found it to be a difficult task. I had a hard time getting both boys in focus in the same shot since it was a lot of Bud chasing Big around and trying to sit next to him for the picture. So, ignore the blurs, and just enjoy the process.

You can tell that Big was less than excited about being pinned down for the shot. Big scooched all of the way down the fireplace with Bud in hot pursuit and finally ran out of scooching room.

Big was perfectly happy with the big orange basketball he was holding-- until his brother went and grabbed Big's brand new ball. His favorite. He wants it so badly!

I love the way Big is eyeing the coveted ball in this picture, but is restraining himself.

I convinced Bud to trade balls with Big so Big could have his favorite. Luckily, Bud was hip to the idea and made the switch. Ah. Much better.

I love the way Bud and Big interact with each other. I never get tired of watching (well, except when they're fighting-- that can get old at warp speed, I admit). Happy. That's what they make me.

Sassy-- I just did it for the first time with this post! When you are uploading the photos, click on the "none" box in the layout section. Then you can move pictures around as you please.

These are great! I love the last with the balls up and down and the funny faces. Thanks for the picture layout trick too. I can't wait to try it!

When it comes to the picture layout-- the last 4 pictures are supposed to be in a block like the first 4, but for some reason show up on my blog in a column. If someone can figure out why they look one way on my draft and another when published, let me know.
