First and only ballet class

We tried taking Bailey (center) and Netta (right) to a ballet class but it was just too scary! But at least we got this lovely photo :)

Muffin maker

Netta making muffins with Nanna (these are from a while back!)



A couple months ago, after Jessica had the smart idea, we had a sing along at the house, something I hope becomes a regular thing! Here are some long overdue photos and video from the fun time. My father and his wife Cynthia, who's amazing on the piano, were in town and helped out.

Bailey is minus a front tooth

Bailey banged her front tooth on a couple things over time and was hurting and infected. So the dentist pulled it. Jessica thankfully went with her, I can't bear that sorta stuff. She reported back the dentist was less than truthful about how much it would hurt, which was alot. Poor Bailey! She kept it together during the procedure but afterwards cried in Jessica's arms. But ever since she's been having no pain and feeling much better. So don't feel too bad for her! The most heartwarming thing from the whole experience is when she was in Jessica's arms after getting it pulled, crying, and said, "Only a grown up or Netta can feel me better. That's the thing."

Lovely lantern festival

Last night was Minneapolis' first lantern festival from the fun Heart of the Beast Theater. We took the kids and stayed for as long as they were willing. It was actually pretty fun, especially the spectacular polar bear below.

Bailey and Clifford off to preschool.

Cool Netta

Beautiful photos

If I may so myself, posting some beeeeautiful photos from a recent morning spent with our friends skating on Minnehaha Creek. So little snow this year means the creek is nice and smooth and skateable. So we did!

Playing hockey with Bailey

photo sent by our babysitter

The girls were sad and Lewis offered to sleep with them. Apparently they asked the sitter to take a photo and send it to Jessica. "They're wonderful!" texted the sitter with this pic. YOU WILL FIND NO ARGUMENT HERE!
