Black and White Wednesday - "Nothing"

June 29, 2011

On Sunday, we made a quick trip to Connecticut to pick up Eddie, my cousin who is only a year older than Nick. He and Nick get along so well, but only get to see each other a few times a year.

For almost as long as I can remember, Eddie has been coming down to spend at least one week with us each summer and we all look forward to his visits.

Of course the boys were both very excited to see each other, but Sarah and Reagan were just as happy and excited to see Eddie walk into our house last weekend.

The boys are having lots of fun, but they contstantly have two little ones on their heels. Luckily, both Nick and Eddie have great patience with the girls and handle them very well.

I went into the kitchen to get them a snack just shortly after we arrived on Sunday and when I came back into the entertainment room, I found both Sarah and Reagan completely mesmerized by the boys.

Nick and Eddie were playing a video game and the girls had been playing dress up...... but the girls stopped playing and just sat down on the floor to watch them.

I cannot ever remember a time that they were both so still........ not even for a cartoon or a Disney movie would they both sit like this. I quickly ran to grab my camera and when I came back they were still sitting there watching contently.

Honestly, I did not really intend to do a post about Sarah and Reagan sitting still on the floor...a little boring I know. I feel like I am pulling a "George Costanza and Jerry Seinfeld" who tried to pitch a show about "Nothing" to NBC......but when I saw this photo, there was something about it that totally captivated me and drew me in.

So I guess you could say, I felt the need to share my "nothing" today......in hopes that you too, see something:)

Oh yes Lisa - I see it too. That is such a perfect moment. Talk about totally mezmerized. Those boys had to feel like super heros with that kind of adoration going on.

For me - these little moments are the absolute best. (And that Seinfelt episode was a fav of mine too.)

Can't believe it's almost July. Can't wait!

Hi there! Glad I stumbled upon your linky. I'm loving it because I simply love the look of Black and White pictures.

Those are mesmerized looks indeed. And I see more and more kids having those kinds of looks when they're engaged in some kind of tech gadget. Beautiful picture.

I absolutely love those moments. You can tell they both look up to their older brother and cousin with such adoration. Love the details... Sarah half way dressed and Reagan stopped midway still holding her shoe in her hand. It's perfect! I love the fact we can't see what their watching. I'm intrigued and would love to see what's up their that has caught their attention.

Thank you for your kind words yesterday. Sorry I didn't get a chance to call. Nat is starting to feel sick today. These two kids of mine just can't stop sharing everything... even their colds. ;-)

Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!

xoxo
