Trick or Treat

The girls are getting geared up for Halloween.  We haven't made final decisions yet.  Should Bix recycle from two years ago?

Should Fi wear the same costume as Bix from her first Halloween?  (They look equally excited about it)


 Or should we try the "never-fail" Tiger suit!?

Oh, decisions, decisions...

Pony Party

We all had a great time!  As soon as we got there, Bix decided to skip the pony and go right for the...

The pony cart was also a good time.  (Plus, it was the fastest of all the rides)

But Bix kept getting back up on Joe.

 Fi tried to get the mule's attention by climbing the fence.

Then she wrangled all the goats into the pen.

All that action really works up a thirst.

 Are there any we missed?

Then it was time for cake.  Happy Birthday Grace!!!

Bix thoroughly enjoyed the birthday cupcakes.

 Fi also mastered the slide.

 So easy...

Pump It Up

Bix has always liked the bouncing.  Fi has always loved the bouncing.  We all got into the act on Friday.  This was only part of the fun...

Princess Fun

The girls had a great time with Grace and Will this afternoon.
Best group of princesses ever.

So long, Mr C

The girls will likely never truly appreciate Tom Bosley the way Auntie B and I did, but hopefully they will enjoy Happy Days on dvd or reruns someday.  He will be missed.

Trip to the Mall

We don't go very often, so when we do it is quite the outing.  Started at the photo place to get some shots of the girls, then it was off to Chick-fil-a, then a ride on the carousel (Fi's first), some carousing on the indoor playground, topped off with a cookie.  Man, no wonder these girls are smiling.



Thanks again Grandma.  Couldn't have done it without you!

Walking and Dancing

Fi is getting more mobile every day.  Bix enjoys having her as a playmate and dance partner.  If you have seen The Happiest Millionaire...this one makes perfect sense.

Easy Chair

This is Fi's favorite spot for watching TV.  Where do you like to curl up to watch your favorite shows?

Happy Birthday to Fi

Our girl turned one today!  We started out the day with a trip to the doctor for the one year exam.  Fi is now 31 in tall (95th percentile) and weighs in at 22 lbs (70th percentile)  She also was due for several shot, so she wasn't exactly the happiest with us. 

Bix spent the afternoon baking a cake, and she was quite proud.

We all sang Happy Birthday, and let Fi blow out her candle (sort of).

Fi gave the cake her seal of approval.

Daddy and Bix helped Fi open one of her presents.

Bix helpfully showed Fi how to play with her new toy.

We can't believe it has been a whole year, but what an amazing time we have had.

Welcome Archie!!!

We are celebrating the birth of Archbold (Archie) John Roy.  He came into the world on Thursday September 30th at 4:35 am. He weighed 7 lbs 11 oz and was 20.5 inches long.
As you can see, he is adorable, and my fabulous sister looks (and feels) pretty great too.
