The Big-Kid Look

After trimming the hair out of Jaden's eyes more than once, it was time for a Big Boy Haircut. (Before)I wanted to wait until after his birthday because I knew it would make him look way too little-boyish. (After)And it does! The baby look is gone. And look, he even combs his hair!I think here he looks like his second-cousin Tim.

Kaitlyn's Drama Debut

Kaitlyn performed in her first play at school on Wednesday. She was Narrator #3 in "The Mitten" - en francais, of course. (That way we couldn't tell if the kids messed up their lines!)They were so cute and they did a very good job.

Jaden's First Birthday!

Hard to believe, but Jaden is a whole year old already. Little boys grow up just as fast as little girls.Since his birthday was on a Wednesday this year, we are having his party on Saturday, but we still had to celebrate on the actual day, too.Jaden was fascinated by the candle. He wasn't really sure what to do with the cake, so he mostly just mushed it between his fingers.When he did finally take a bite, he must not have really cared for it because he didn't take many more bites after that.He would rather share his cake with us than eat it. (Fine by Mom!)

Olympic Spirit

The Olympics have come to our town! Well, sort of. The Russian figure skaters are practicing at the local ice rink and on Saturday we went and saw two of the couples practice. Yuko Kavaguti and Aelxander Smirnov, and Vera Bazarova and Yuri Larionov practiced some of their jumps, spins and twists on the ice for us to see.Yesterday the Olympic Torch passed through our town, too. Being a once in a lifetime opportunity to see the Olympic Torch, us girls decided we should go see it, while the boys stayed home watching the Super Bore, which is on every year.
The girls made their own torches, we got free flags and free Olympic Coke,we saw torches of Olympics-pastand our own Canadian Torchand we saw the Olympic Torch brought in to the stadium.A once in a lifetime sight.
