Happy half-birthday, Pumpkin!

Our little man turned 2 1/2 last Sunday.  This kid keeps us moving and we're so thankful we have him!

Bop and Gaga

Bop and Gaga shared Valentine's Day supper with us and then spent all day on Friday with us, playing, working, and keeping the kids very happy.  David and I enjoyed our Valentine's date Friday evening before Bop and Gaga left this morning.  William looks like he has blood dripping from his mouth (which is always a possibility), but this time it's just salsa.

Valentine's Day!

The kids always come downstairs to their Valentine's cards, a gift (this year it was a 36 pack of play-doh), and heart pancakes. 

Happy half birthday, Bea and Inga!

We pulled out a few more cupcakes from the freezer to celebrate the half birthdays of Bea and Inga!  Bea sighed that morning and said, "You have to do SO MUCH more work when you're 4 1/2.  Like maybe make your bed."  It's just so hard being a kid in this household.

Happy Half-Birthday, Graham!

Our Graham is 7 1/2 years old today!   We are so proud of the young man he is becoming!

A busy January

 To pass the time during a VERY cold week, the kids built fort after fort after fort.

 Our snow turned to mud last week.  William was thrilled.
 We've been studying the Civil War as part of our history this year.  Uncle Aaron sent down some uniforms and a pup tent from his reenacting days.  The kids had a blast with it! 
 Studying about Civil War uniforms is so much more fun when you're dressed as one of the guys!
 Graham's entrepreneurial endeavors continued with a slime museum.  Only 5 cents to see the exhibit!

 Graham also participated in his first real science fair.  His experiment was among forty young scientists from The Greenhouse.  We learned that light bends in different ways when it is combined with water lenses.

 More snow fell and Daddy had all of the kids working hard!
 A well-earned Sunday afternoon nap
