Adventures of eating and sleeping

New Sink!

kristel - 2 January 2012

Just loving our new kitchen sink!


After. A perfect Julie bath!

Bye Bye…


It’s so sad when good friends move away.  We are going to miss you.  🙁

All the kiddos.

Bye Bye Hugs.

Christmas 2011


No traveling this Christmas. It was very peaceful. We missed family for sure, but it was still nice. Good friends, good food. And we actually put up a tree. 🙂

The Night Before Christmas!

Let's take a break to play with something new!

Playing together!

Bouncing on "pony tail"...

All dressed and ready to play...

October Snow – 22 inches!


Here comes the snow… and since the leaves haven’t fallen off the trees… here comes crashing down all the trees… and here goes everyone’s power… and here is postponed Halloween… But, at least Thomas is having fun digging out. Julie is not sure what to think.


Are you sure it's October?

This is fun!

This is cold.

First sit in the snow. (Technically her first snow storm was driving home, 6 hours old.)

My little bundles.

Sometimes I barely get a good chair picture, but this month it was hard to decide. Here are my two favorites. In the end, the smile one made the BrownChair page.

Happy Birthday Thomas! What could be better, a picnic at the park with best friend and cupcakes! He insisted on Purple-Chocolate-Raspberry-Cake. All summer I kept asking and his story never changed, so I think I did pretty good with Chocolate cupcakes and Black Raspberry “Purple” frosting. 🙂

Daddy was a chaperone on the first field trip! A hayride to the pumpkin patch and an adventure through the corn maze.

Being a Big Brother


Thomas is using his swaddle blanket like a sling, so he can hold his baby just like Momma holds Julie.  Such a good daddy he is.  🙂  Also, some quality brother-sister time on the couch.

Swaddles make good slings.
