Happy 7th Birthday, Jay!

I wasn't sure what to get Jay for his birthday. He has a lot, and isn't "into" anything in particular, so we finally settled on taking him to Target and letting him pick out what he wanted. Let me just say, that his choice made his father VERY proud...
He chose a U2 cd. Why did it make John proud? Because John got his very first U2 album as a birthday present for his 11th birthday.
Now, every night, the boys listen to U2 as they go to bed.

Happy Birthday, Nana!

This is John's grandmother, so the kids' great-grandmother! We went to Nifty Fifties (a fifties diner that specializes on burgers, fries, and milkshakes) to celebrate her 89th birthday!

"Baby Big Bird"

The weather was beautiful the other day (it has since snowed 4 inches). The kids were so excited to go out, so I sent them out in our fenced in backyard and continued what I was doing inside. Periodically I'd check on them. This is what I found...
...Julia was pretending to be a baby bird, so they "built" a nest around her.

Sorry for the lapse...I'm back. I guess you could call it half slump/half a battery issue (every time I go to use the camera, the batteries are dead-they are old and need to be replaced).
