Story Time

February 8th, 2011 by Matt · 2 Comments

(a post by Matt) I have been in charge of at least 50% of bedtime duty since we started this experiment of trying to raise two babies at the same time, and 100% of it since the babies stopped really being babies. I think I kind of fell into it because A) I was in […]

Winter Games

February 6th, 2011 by Matt

A few pictures from recent going-ons. David at the playground, about to go down a slide. We like to play in the garage, bringing tables, chairs, and elaborate setups down to enjoy the big open space.

Big Day

December 14th, 2010 by Matt · 2 Comments

C&D woke up early this morning; they wanted to have a St. Lucia breakfast. I figured that since we had celebrated Martinmas last month with horseshoe-shaped cookies and a lantern walk, we could be fair and celebrate a female figure this month.
