Santa was good to all of us! We had a wonderful day that both Evan and Sophie enjoyed alot. Many highlights, but the play kitchen was one of them!  According to Sophie, all the presents from Santa “tasted” great! We are heading up to Fair Play on Friday morning for a few days of relaxing […]

Hurry down the chimney…

Chistmas Eve is here! A great visit to the Cleary’s house. Evan spent from  7 to 10 pm (way past the latest he has ever been up at night) following the big kids around! He loved it! Dads got home kind of late which meant there was preparing to do to make sure everything was […]

We have been anxiously waiting for Sophie to get to the age where she can interact with Evan in a meaningful way and “co-play”. A few mornings  before Christmas we found them playing on the floor togeter. They were both amazingly content – and this went on for about 15 minutes before intervention of any […]

David is on vacation now until the 31st! Yippee! Saturday was predcited to be the only sunny day between now and after Christmas, so we decided to spend the day outside as much as we could. Playground in the morning, lunch out, and then naps. After naps, it had started to get dark and cold, […]

Growing up

Academy of Sciences

Tuesday was another off for the daddies, so Nana and Pappi joined us in a great trip to the amazing new Academy of Sciences museum. We were amazed at the number of things that  were there for a child Evan’s age. He loved every moment and we are looking forward to returning soon.

Christmas Shopping

Daddies had a couple of days off – so we  tried to go Christmas shopping. All we really got done was spending some time at the play space at the mall! At least the kids had fun! After shopping we did stop for lunch. David, Evan, and Sophie all got their first trip ever to […]

The entire family and many friends attended which made an especially great day. Evan loved it, and sat watching every bit of it, […]
