Calls Come Calling

February 27, 2010

Our frinds the Call family came over tonight. We all had a great time.

All of the kids always get along very well and have a lot of fun together.

Tonight included a movie, complete with bags of popcorn.

Pranked by the Teletubbies?

February 22, 2010

Maybe you can help us out.

Is the picture below the remnants of Tracy letting the kids help decorate a cake for PaPa John's birthday, or did the Teletubbies leave us a "surprise" in our trash can as a prank?

You make the call.

PaPa John's Birthday Party

February 20, 2010

Today we celebrated PaPa John's birthday.

The kids newest cousins were there, and the evening was great.

Happy Birthday PaPa!

Pride Rock Emerges

February 21, 2010

After many years of making it well-known that he wanted to discard it, Tracy's homemade Pride Rock (Lion King) playset came out of the basement today, adding yet another checkmark on the "Tracy was right" column.

The kids have been watching The Lion King a lot lately and Tracy remembered about her Pride Rock she made way back in high school.

It instantly became the kids favorite toy, and they have not stopped playing with it, or losing the pieces.

Playing in the Snow

February 14, 2010

It snowed a little bit last night, and Drew was super excited to be out in it.

Jamie was not excited enough to go through the hassle of getting all three kids snow-ready, so he decided to take Drew outside during the girls' nap.

Drew had a blast and even tried to make a snowman, but the snow was too powder-y for that.

Toby had a fun time too!

Playing Around

February 12, 2010

Sometimes you just have to take pictures of the everyday moments. Today was one of those times.
