bucket


I washed my car weeks ago and forgot to bring the bucket inside. William found it yesterday and sat in it when we weren't looking. When he started eating bubbles and getting goosebumps i filled it up with warm water and he hung out in it for an hour.

Hold on Santa!



One of the things i like most about Aperture is being able to view images quickly like a flip book. Here is a series of 150 images distilled into a 16 second video clip. I used Quicktime (file>open image sequence) to compile the video.

Anyway, this is us yard kayaking with Uncle Michael.

WB Sunrise


Having your kids wake you up at the crack of dawn has its benefits.

restraint


Ever since we made our graham cracker house a week ago William has been pilfering "m&n's" from it's candy pathway. One time i found him in the fetal position, on top of the table, next to the house. When I asked him what he had been eating, he looked up at me with chocolate on his nose and said, "no".

Jem and The Holograms?



I caught Katie watching this tonight. Does this make anybody else nostalgic?

Busy little hands


I love ben's hands in this pic. He was "driving" the entire time while will seemed to be interested only in the cheese samples.

Happy Halloween


Katie, posting here, so I just figured out that it is really easy to post pictures from Flickr to our blog. So hopefully I'll be posting a lot more often, if Pete's ok with that! Here's our barnyard family. We had a great time at Michael and Wrenn's house, especially since they had arrived home from the hospital with baby Smith less than 24 hrs. before. William had a blast playing and going Trick or Treating for the first time. The Petrash family was visiting from Colorado so that made it extra special!

Ben


Our little cow.

Moo


What? I like grass, I'm a cow. Ben, after we found him eating the grass.

Little Horsey


William hiding in the bushes.

Cousins


Me and Loren with our little ones. Baby Allen was a bumble bee, too cute and Aunt Loren was Woody the Wood Pecker.

Andy, Jillian, and Phoebe


Andy as a cult leader (not really, we just thought he looked like one), Jillian the blonde bombshell, and little Phoebe a Bronco's cheerleader for her first Halloween.

Michael and Maggie


Michael dressed up as Joe the Plumber, very creative and Maggie was a ballerina.
