How cute. Also: for the love of God!

Last night Tim called at dinner time to help ease Kate into her nighttime routine. She talked to him for probably 2-3 minutes. She didn't hang up! She didn't press any buttons! She listened, and had a conversation about the stars and the moon. This video caught the tail end of the conversation when he apparently had hung up, thinking she had put the phone down.

"No screaming, Claire! No!"

Then:

Oh dear. It's 3pm. The girls are still talking. It's a night week, so Tim won't be home to field crabby babies. Crap.

On a positive note: 3 Musketeers Mint Minis with Dark Chocolate. I think I accidentally ate the whole bag.

ok, this is not motivating me to move Emiliana into Max's room. I love the screaming in stereo. How did our mothers do it?!?!

I love the mint minis.....yum!

Jen! You have the cutest little girls! (Well, in addition to Grace, of course) :) And how do you get to your camera so quickly? You have the best blogs! Enjoyed it immensely. :)

That is so cute!!! I loooooove the videos!

I totally understand the mom panic when you realize there will be no napping and no husband around during the terrible evening hours. Sucks. I feel your pain!

Most people I know who have their kids share rooms put them down for naps in separate rooms (one in a pack and play, for instance...) Just a thought!

Camille - it doesn't work well for naps very often, but they usually do fine at night together! Just make sure you have the playpen set up in another room.

Deborah - thanks! And I didn't get to the camera quickly: they just kept going and going and going. And it appears I am in for the same serenade today. Grrr. My playpen is in the den where my main computer is. Pllb.

Katie - I do that on a regular basis, unfortunately. I wish they could always sleep together, but as evidenced yesterday, that does not always happen.

Hello; Jen and Tim, Kate and Clare; blessings from Silverton. It is great to catch up with all your postings on your blog. Kate cooking and Clare walking, I really liked the picture of Kate with your lipstick, brought back memories.

Things are going well here and leave December 11th for Sudan. It was an amazing 2 1/2 months in NC, Praise God

I love you all
Love Aunt Debbie

Oh Jen. This blog entry just made my day.

Okay, so how do you continue to make comments about eating entire bags or cakes or other things made of chocolate and continue to look so amazing?! I am LOVING the raspberry M&Ms and trying to make them last as I don't know where to get any more and I probably shouldn't eat any more! Thanks again!

That was adorable! It looks like i'm going to have to figure out how to get to internet access more often. I so miss seeing your and J and C's kids growing up.Here's something for you to look forward to..Recently the four older girls asked if they could share a room. Always looking for something exciting to do, I obliged.Three hours later a new room arose. The girls love it. Hannah reads bedtime stories. Well the other day Ellie was looking and acting particularly tired. When loving asked..." What's your problem." She said, "Hannah didn't stop reading till 1 O'Clock!!!! Sheila
