Kissing Cousins


It took Emma & Jude half the morning to work out the kinks in their cousinly relationship.

"Mommy!" Jude kept shrieking every five minutes, "Emma won't listen to me!"

They finally settled upon a mutually enjoyable game they named "Catch on the Boat." The boat was my bed, the object was to catch the half-deflated pink ball. As you can see from the above pic, the ball kept flying over Jude's head, much to Emma's delight.


"Yep," Jude proclaimed, "we're getting married!"
