Sweet big brothers

Little Mary Claire took a tumble this afternoon while attempting to ride her tricycle...down the length of our driveway! She's got a doozy of a scrape on her sweet little face, but is otherwise no worse for wear. Thank goodness!

In the ensuing commotion, David and John were both very concerned. David asked, "What happened?! Is she okay?!" Then, in an effort to cheer Mary Claire up, he continued, "On your birthday, you will get lots of presents!" After that, he and John both drew lots of pictures of animals and heroes to present to Mary Claire as she (and her parents!) recovered from the trauma. Here's David with one of his works ("Giraffe, lion, cheetah, river, lake"); note the cameo by battle-hardened Mary Claire over his right shoulder (and a glimpse of John over his left!). Fun times...

Artists at work

The chalkboard is great entertainment on cold mornings for sick kids.

The week's been too crazy for photos

but I feel bad for not posting news of the kids for Ned. So here's a photo from a few weeks ago of rock star Mary Claire.

Watch this!

Maybe not my best idea...

David's creations

David creates the most elaborate scenes and then has all his characters fight. Villains always win. I like that imagination. He walks to his own beat.

Matchy Matchy

Comfy. Comfy.

Happy anniversary, Gram & Big Daddy!

Four kids, four grandchildren, and forty years. Plus, the happy memory of 1970s fashion. We love you!

This is how MB feels

when she thinks about taking down Christmas decorations in a few days.

Great visit!

Who knows what the boys were up to when this photo was taken, but Mary Claire didn't miss the chance to say goodbye to our guests: Uncle Daniel, Miss Valerie, and Alina. Hope they visit us again soon!

Happy new year!
