First Day of School

Adam started school on Thursday with a half day. He was excited to go to school. I didn't get much out of him after school other than he had made a new friend (when I saw them outside...I saw him with his arm around another boy) and he was the table captain...which meant he got to clean the table. I guess I should make him a cleaning captain at home to make him excited about cleaning :-). Here are few pictures. I'm including one with the fake smile so you can see's probably what I'll get in his school picture :-).

As you can see, Andrew was also wearing his backpack. As soon as he saw Adam wearing his new backpack, he had to get his new Toy Story packpack and wear it. Andrew starts school next week. I'll take some may or may not get to see them...I'm sure you're in shock that you're seeing these :-).

More Pictures from the Museum

More Children's Museum Pictures

Children's Museum

The boys and I are visiting Sandra, Mike, and Aaron. The boys are having a blast playing together, and today we went to the Children's Museum (since I've seen so many pictures of Aaron having fun there on Sandra's blog). Here are a couple of pictures for daddy at home (who's missing all the fun).

Merry Christmas!

I hope you have a wonderful Christmas! We opened gifts last night. I have lots of pictures, but I haven't loaded them onto my computer yet. But, I did get a new Flip video camera, so here's some video to enjoy. Note Andrew stealing the gift under the tree in the beginning :-).

Anatomy of a Christmas Card Picture

I am a firm believer in the benefits of a digital camera and Photoshop...and now you have proof! I was taking pictures of the boys the other day for Christmas cards (so I could send my pictures away for free shipping at Snapfish on Tues). I got some good pictures...but not THE great one that I always aim for. Enter...Photoshop. I took Andrew's head from one picture and inserted it into another picture where Adam looked really cute. No one knows the difference (well...except those of you who are reading this). I am not showing the Christmas card part of the picture, so I won't totally spoil the surprise of our Christmas cards :-). Usually, I don't have to be so extreme with my Photoshop skills (like swapping out heads). I've taken eyes from another picture if one person in a group has their eyes closed and everyone else looks good. It's a great way to get a good picture when you have more than one child.

Yes, I know, Sandra....Aaron wore that vest when he wasn't even a year and a half!!
