Coming to you live from the Village!


Hooray for being another year older.  Ron and I have just had our birthdays which means now that I am 30 and Ron is only 29 I am pretty much ancient.  We had a birthday party with my family this last Friday and I had this great idea for a cake.  I decided to combine my love of Disney with Ron’s love of Star Wars and made a Jedi Mickey Mouse cake.  I was really happy with how it turned out and wanted to share.

Hello again!

Hello again everyone.  We just wanted to let you know that we haven’t fallen off the face of the earth.   We have just been having so much fun with the boys that we haven’t had any time to update our blog.  So, we’re sorry that we are such slackers, but here is an update on what has been going on. 


Of course the boys are growing like weeds.  I took Jack in for his two month check up the first week of February and he weighed in at a whopping 14 lbs. 6 oz. and was 24.5 Inches long.  The height was the same as Luke at two months, but Jack weighed almost 2 ½ lbs. more.  I think he has been bulking up to give him an advantage in his wrestling matches with Luke. 


Luke is such a good big brother.  He is finally starting to understand being soft with Jack and can often be found patting his head, giving him kisses, or hugs.  Unfortunately his hugs involve him laying on top of Jack, but Jack doesn’t seem to mind too much.  One of Luke’s favorite games to play , much like pin the tail on the donkey, is stick the binki in Jack’s mouth.  Although he is not blindfolded, his aim is about as good.  He usually hits him in the eye, the nose, and occasionally the ear before he hits his mouth.  If he does manage to actually get it in, he immediately pulls it back out and tries again.  They are really cute together.


Luke got his first hair cut this morning.  His hair is still fairly thin, but it had gotten really long behind his ears and it was starting to tickle him.  He has been scratching at his ears for the last little while, which at first I thought was because he has dry skin.  However, yesterday my friend Melanie realized that it was because his hair was tickling him and he was trying to get it out of the way.  So, this morning I gave him a haircut.  He kept trying to turn his head to see what I was doing, but he did really well actually.  I just hope it looks ok. 


Ron has been super busy at school.  He has student body elections to deal with this week, the school’s talent show next week, and it is the end of the term and his grades are due.  Hopefully, after next week things will slow down a little for him since his big projects will be done.  If nothing else, he gets Spring Break in a couple of weeks. 


We have been enjoying the warmer weather and try to get outside as much as we can.  Luke and Ron had a lot of fun playing with Luke’s soccer ball and glider last weekend.  Since then, Luke will grab his shoes and run to the back door just to let me know that he wants to go out and play.  He also really enjoys laughing at the dogs as Taffy and the neighbors dogs bark at each other. 


For now, there is a bit of an update.  I’m sorry again that we have slacked off for so long.  Hopefully we will get better about staying up to date.  If only the boys would learn to post for us…
