Evan counted to “60” today with no help (except he said 50 wrong at first). Max can count to “10” and correctly identify up to 2 objects.  Sophie is counting 10 objects now, and can stop when she runs out of objects. Up until recently she use to continue counting even after she ran out […]

Evan Turns Four

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

Evan had his fourth birthday at “pump it up”. He went to two birthday parties there before his, and really wanted his there as well. He had a great time. Almost every kid from his preschool class came, as well as a ton of family and friends. He got so many gifts, and handled himself […]

Height Check

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

In this photo, taken March 19, 2011, all three kids were standing against the refrigerator holding hands. I don’t remember why, but i thought it was a good chance to get them all in a picture and remember how they compare in height. This is during the month that Evan and Sophie are both 3 […]

Spring Fun

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

Through the very wet month of March, we found some new and fun things to do in the house. One thing that all three kids began to enjoy – was building forts in the living room. As Max is more able to pretend like he is one of the big kids, all three would go […]

“Look, it’s Springtime” (Producers)

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

A great weekend in Fair Play. Bittersweet because we decided to rent out our Fair Play house to our friend Sarah and her family for at least the next year. With Daddy David doing real estate in the city, it means we will have to spend more time at home on the weekends, and going […]

“Merrily We Roll Along”

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

St Philips Preschool had the annual “trike-a-thon” this week -raising money for St Jude’s. Evan raised over $200 for the kids, and was very proud. Of course Sophie wanted to ride her tri-cycle too!  Evan and Sophie both rode their trikes around the track set up in the schoolyard for over 30 minutes, and loved […]

“I get a kick out of you” (Anything Goes)

Thursday, March 10th, 2011

The family made an exciting trip to Southern California this month. The highlight of the trip was having the kids meet their biological Great Grandma Connie (Angela’s Mother’s Mother) and Grandpa Gary (Angela’s Dad).  It took each of them a few minutes to warm up, but by the end of our morning together all three […]

“For we need a little Christmas” (Mame (or Glee))

Sunday, December 26th, 2010

Christmas Day 2010.    9:00 PM and two out of three kids are still crying trying to get themselves to sleep. Seems natural enough I guess – it was an exciting and full day with presents from morning till night, large meals that were largely ignored for the candy canes and chocolates that seem to be […]
