For the new readers of this blog I would like to inform you that every year I take pictures of my kids when their ages run concurrently. Since my oldest 2 are 17 months apart and my youngest 2 are 15 months apart, every spring they are very close in age, until my oldest's birthday in June. This year I am the proud owner of a 3,4 and 5 year old.
I used to do this big production where I cut out pieces of cardboard in the shapes of their ages and covered them with wrapping paper. I started off having them hold them, but then found it was easier to tape them to the wall above their heads.
This year I got almost no cooperation from them at all.
At first Mike completely refused, then Bekah and then Jake. This may be my last year doing this. I know the grandparents will be very disappointed.
Their tshirts say "I'm 3/4/5 what's your excuse?" My plan was for them to line up against the wall so you could read their tshirts. Whatever.
