Funny Faces

I love how each kid has their own funny face that they pull out at weird times.  This is Luca's:

Our First Live Christmas Tree!

We decided to go for it this year and get a live Christmas tree. We had a blast cutting it down in the snow, although we were worried about our van making it up the hill to the tree farm!  The smell is amazing and Kaylon created a pretty ingenious set up for watering it.

More pictures to follow when decorated!

Again, I will never tire of this view...

Happy Thanksgiving!

Might not be the best idea to "try" to throw a snowball at your wife (and miss) when you don't have shoes or a coat on, and she has power over the door lock. Just saying...

Magic of Growing Up

I've already seen it happen 4 times with the girls, but it's still magical to watch your child choose to walk instead of crawl.

Allergy Testing (Again)

It was Luca's turn to get the needle treatment at the allergist today, and sadly came up with some crummy results.  No wonder the boy's skin is a mess- he's allergic to eggs, peanuts, and milk.  Lots of changes coming to his diet, but hopefully it will mean less scratching and general miserableness.

Ok, I have to admit, I never expected to have cheerleaders for daughters.  Not that there is anything wrong with cheer-leading- Totally on the cheer-leading is a real sport side- I have lots of friends who cheer, so don't get me wrong... I just expected them to go into my sports.  But I decided a long time ago that I would let them find their own ways, so when I offered basketball or cheer, and two chose cheer, I totally supported them.  And they're so cute, how could I be disappointed?
