february 2017

February seems like it should be one of those slow months, but it got pretty busy for us.
Gus had his Kindergarten Jets v. Bombers t-ball game...
He had lots of fans to cheer him on...
He played catcher and he also had some good hits.  He was pretty happy that the Jets won!
We had our Groundhog Party, but we only took pictures of the cute babies...
Gus was Star of the Week in his class and we made St. Augustine crafts...
Bess came to visit with Ingrid and Asher...
Nora and Ingrid became good little buddies...
And I was glad to get some good time with my old buddy...
Of course, there was Valentine's Day...
This little doll face was everyone's favorite Valentine...
Mom and Dad went to a grown-up Valentine's party at the Pauls...
Nano and Nana came for a visit...
And so did Uncle Danny!  He got to meet Francie and needless to say he was smitten...
The kids taught him to play Enchanted Forest...
We hiked Hole-in-the-Rock..
And we kept enjoying our own backyard...
Here are some banana pancakes and crazy monkeys...
And possibly the most important event of the month was Gus losing his first tooth!

january 2017

Some of our antics from January...
Princesses are still pretty big...
Tea parties are still popular, too.
But Gus is teaching Nora in his ways, too...
We had a fun game night at Dad's school...
We took lots of time to be out enjoying the wonderful weather...
Jimmy and Dad finally did their long awaited building project: a sports organizer...
As usual we read a lot.   Fox in Socks is Dad's favorite...
"Now is your tongue numb?"
There is lots of football this time of year which the boys all love and I try hard to tolerate.
Cardinals are still #1 in the boys hearts and they both sport their jerseys frequently, but Gus still helps cheer along the Packers for Nano.
And Francie is a cute little three month old now.  She loves a good bath...
She is a good sport while we try to recreate old pictures that we did with all the other kids...
She didn't love it, but she does love her siblings...
She sure is cute and cozy in her little winter jammies...

Even when we end up in the emergency room with croup...
I was worse off than her, but we made it through.
