Happy Birthday #3

I got to celebrate my birthday 2 times this year - thanks to all my grandparents for visiting!  Tyler was so very helpful with opening my gifts, I'll have to remember to return the favor.

Happy Halloween!

Dad got a job, so.....

our faces have not graced the 'ol blog page.  Here are a few photos from July, August and September to get us all caught up. We had a fun summer figuring out our new town.  Our apartment is small and mom's patience short so not much has changed since we've moved in.  We are looking forward to Halloween!

Playing at "Sand in the City" - where tons of sand is dumped on downtown streets!

Welcome to Iowa!

Don't call us Hoosiers anymore, we're Hawkeyes now after our move to Iowa City.

We Love Technology (and blankets)

We can do hands on or hands off -- still waiting for that Xbox or Wii, however. Dad says that bad tempers and video games don't mix well so I guess that means no.

Playing with cars

There is a right way and a wrong way to play with cars. I'm demonstrating the right way to do things here -- you must be at eye level with your cars, otherwise you really can't expect to get it right. You should also get as many cars out of the box at one time as your parents can tolerate. And there is never a bad time to play with cars although I recommend 1st thing in the morning and right after your nap as can't miss car playing time.

It's the Fever

Of course the Bears didn't make it but how many times will the Super Bowl be held in a cold midwestern city? Exactly. And we're close so we had to check things out. We toured the Super Bowl Village -- sadly we were too small to do the 800' long zip line but there were plenty of other crazy things going on. We also got some Super Bowl gear supporting Uncle Matt's favorite team and favorite player, Tommy Brady. We'll be ready for game time tomorrow around 7pm ET and then we'll probably have to go to bed before the end of the 1st quarter. I guess the Super Bowl isn't really for us kids...

Competing with Clark

We really went all out in decorating this year, you can hardly even recognize our house!

And we again succeeded in making sure there were no usable photos for a Christmas card. Taking turns being lunatics makes the job much easier. Once we knew the battle was over we of course rubbed it in by smiling like normal humans in this picture:
