Joelle's 4th birthday (sniff, cough)

Amazing how time is zipping by and we are almost at 2010. Hal? (Sorry sci-fi slip). I blame FB for the lack of posting. The evolution of communication in cyberspace is fast paced and lacking in forgiveness.

For starters yesterday was Joelle's 4th birthday and we have all contracted the flu!!! Well almost everyone, Joshua is still unscathed. Everyone else has a temperature over 100 degrees. We have gotten to the point now were we smirk at the ones with less that 100.4 degrees and say things like "you call that a temperature?" Fortunately she received several phone calls with song and well wishes. Thank you! We had to skip the customary birthday donut, no cake but we did have a heart shaped pizza and lots of pink decorations. As you can see from the picture she enjoyed the salon treatment provided by her mom.

I never posted the kid's first day of school pictures and thought it would be a good idea to do it now before we went so far in to the holiday season that the new smell is gone. If you did not already know we have THREE children in school now. THREE! Nathaniel (2nd grade), Benjamin (kindergarten) and Joelle (preschool). They were soooo excited on their first day and have been excited about school ever since. Here is a great pic of Joelle sporting her first day of school outfit.

I will do my best to keep up with the holidays and everything else that is going on in our life. Right now I am going to try to get everyone to rest.
