Hamster Dance

There's a new kid in town. Rachael and Kaitlyn have been begging for a pet for a while, and Daddy (being the softie that he is) caved in. We went to the pet store yesterday "just to look." Famous last words. We got there and everything in the store was 50% off. So the girls got a pet hamster. Her (at least, we're pretending it's a her - don't really know for sure and I don't care to look!) name is Lilly. I'm pretty impressed that the girls gave her a real name - not "Brownie" or "Hamsty" or "Fluffy." (They once had a toy rhino they wanted to name "Horney" - we tried to discourage that one!) For now the little furball is set up in their room, but he may end up down in the play room. And the girls are thrilled.

Somebody's One Year Old!

I know time flies, but no, it's not Jaden! It's cousin Johnathan! We went over to their new house for his first birthday party, and I think it's safe to say Johnathan had fun. There were lots of presents, of course.His favorite was a new car!And there was cake.He had his cake,and he ate it, too! (I love the crooked party hat!)Happy Birthday Johnathan!

Sports Day

It was a beautiful day for Sports Day this year. And this time both girls got to participate. Jaden slept through most of it. Here's some pictures of the day:

Jaden's Cute....

....just in case you didn't know, but here's some pictures to prove it!He's a little thumb-sucker, too! I tried to remove the ugly bib (he's SUCH a drooler!) but of course in the process, out came the thumb.And he's starting to play with toys more now. He's not really reaching for things yet, but if you put a toy on his chest then he'll grab on to it.
