pictures pictures pictures!!!!

Here we are!!!  This'll be a quick attempt at catching up.  We have two cameras and I forget which pictures I post, and which I don' this is a few months time in the Mauger household.
First, sweet Lydia swimming, she's a daredevil and I have to be on my toes because she doesn't mind going under.
 So we put Lydia on the toilet because we're gonna start her early :)  I did read a book that suggested 6 months (ugh!) was a great time to start.  She loved sitting on it, and we got some cute, not too revealing shots. 
Here's crazy Al and his permanent chapped cheeks, Colorado winters.
We flew to St. Louis and Al got a seat all to himself because Lydia was throwing up and the flight assistant wouldn't let us sit with Lydia on the single seat row.  So Dave decided to sacrifice for Al :0   He enjoyed himself fully!
And here's cousin Madeline singing to High School Musical songs (I'm told that's cool)  and Alex is rockin' out!  We'll work on the dance moves when he's older :)
That's it!  Hope you enjoyed them.

I'll make this quick....I've been tagged, apparently I have to say 7 things about myself, and they should probably be interesting too :)  So, here we go!
1.  I have had 2 surgeries on my right little toe because it kept trying to grow bigger
2.  I am extremely attractive to mosquitos and spiders and have had more than 50 mosquito bites on my face at one time.
3.  I play the piano everyday, and I have played it since I was 8 years old...but I still get extremely nervous to play hymns for church.
4.  I wrote to Dave every week on his mission and he wrote me every week.  We have all the letters saved in order and I still read through them occasionally.
5.  When I was in 5th grade I said I wanted to be an auto mechanic when I grew up.  I don't know why but I still have the paper to prove it :)
6.  When my sister  and I were little we hated cleaning our room (we shared a room) and so to make it more fun we would pick up every single toy with our took ALL DAY!
7.  I am very clumsy, I always have a fresh wound from something and bruises all over my body from tripping and bumping into things.  I once spilled every single thing I ate for lunch...chips, drinks, soup, applesauce...everything.  But, my father and brother are clumsier than me :), interesting that they both chose life saving jobs eh?

  I was looking through my pictures and realized that I didn't record a BUNDLE of here we go!  This first one is Alex's 3rd birthday.  He got this lovely rocket launcher from Aunt Nichole...and I have already been hit with these stinkin' rockets too many times to count :)  But we can thank Uncle Jason for teaching Alex how to aim them.  Aren't older siblings supposed to get over torturing their younger one when we all get older?

     This is just a sweet shot of Sonya and Al holding cute!
   Finally, our new television box.  Why a new television you ask?  Well, our old one broke so we sent it in to the shop.  He looked at it, said it would be too expensive to fix, and we could buy a new one for the same price.  It was only 5 years old so we asked him what was wrong.  He said there was a souvenir penny from The air force academy (one of those flattened ones) stuck inside......ALEX!!!!!  We went about a year ago to the academy, so I guess we should be happy it lasted as long as it did.

And here's sweet lydia, who will eventually also be shooting rockets and sticking pennies into our electronics, but right now she's just learning to eat with her hands and trying to cruise on the furniture :)
