Birthday Party

September 17, 2010

Today was the first birthday for cousins Natalie and Evan. We all headed down South to Aurora to their party.

The party was a lot of fun. Has it really been a year already?

Come on, hand 'em over!

Now what?

Drew's First Lost Tooth

September 17, 2010

Much to our surprise, today Jamie noticed something along Drew's gumline that was not quite right.

Fast forward 90 minutes and Daddy and Drew were at the dentist (great dentist to get us in so fast!).

Fast forward another three hours and the tooth "fell out" (with the help of some laughing gas and some metal implements) at a special children's dentist in Loveland.

All of this was the result of Drew falling into a wall and damaging his tooth when he was two years old.

Drew is proud to have lost his first tooth, and even wrote a letter to the tooth fairy.

Small Group Reunion - For lack of a better name.

September 12, 2010

Tracy and Willow took the initiative to plan a get-together today of a bunch of old friends from CSU, many which we have not seen in almost a decade.

It was great to see everyone, and everyone brought their kids, and there are sure a lot of kids among us all!

It was fun to remember old times, talk about what has happened in the past ten years and catch up a bit.

Princess Party

September 11, 2010

The girls went to their first "girls only" princess party today for Marley's birthday.

Drew and Daddy had a boys day, and also had a lot of fun. So much fun that there wasn't enough of a break to take pictures. So there.

All the little princesses

First Soccer Games

September 11, 2010

Today all three kids had their first soccer games of the Fall 2010 season.

Just a couple months of age (since the Spring season) has given Drew enough of something to have improved a lot.

This was the first game ever for Brie and Lexi, and they were apprehensive to say the least. Three years of telling them to share are supposed to go completely out the window as we encourage them to fight with each other over the ball.

A rough start, but it will surely be a great season.

Great Aunt Greta Visits

September 3, 2010

Great Aunt Greta came over to visit today all the way from Nebraska.

Joining her were Nini & Pomi.

Of course, the kids had a great time, and we all enjoyed seeing everyone.
