These pictures were taken because a very strange thing happened one morning last week. After breakfast, both kids went into the playroom while I cleaned up the kitchen. I cleaned the kitchen, sat down and finished my coffee and realized something was different. There was no yelling. No fighting. No crying. And they were alone, together, in the playroom. For a longish time. (Long for them, anyway...means maybe 10 minutes had passed??)

So, I peaked in and could not believe that they were actually engaged together in an activity and STILL were not fighting. (I would have been more likely to believe that they had each just found something on their own to be engaged in.) I knew the moment would likely be over, but I couldn't help snapping a few shots. Once I had interrupted the game anyway, I asked if I could take a few of them together in their "bone jammies", which are their absolute FAVORITE jammies and which they insist on wearing at the same time. (which you know I love)

The photo session wasn't quite as peaceful as their playing had been. Aidric was NOT feeling it and was not a gracious recipient of Juliet's hugs and kisses until I finally promised him a treat if he cooperated.
