lafonda

elise and i have been babysitting hyrum and lydia this week. at some point elise tied her hood tightly and starting speaking with an accent, pretending she was a girl named lafonda, who likes to dress just like elise but always wears a hood because she has a bald spot. we met her at a gas station. they ask incessantly about her--even lydia goes around yelling, "fonda? fonda?" today they got another sighting when elise was wearing a towel on her head after her shower, and covering part of her face with an ice pack (wisdom teeth out yesterday). i think they will be far more disappointed to see lafonda go tomorrow than the two of us...


lydia getting so big!

i left my camera on a chair. we went somewhere. jon came home for lunch. i found my camera later to discover these precious gems, and many more.

elise
-was really amazed at jon's muscles
-says, "don't worry dave, we know you could take jon any day."

I'll claim the cute little girl in the 1st picture, but I don't have to claim the weirdo in the other two, right? At least I can say I'm not blood related like you are :)
