Abegail Turns 9

Abegail had a nice birthday last Saturday. She had a few friends sleep over. The first picture is of the next morning with pancakes. The kids had fun playing make-up and games and of course eating cake with twinkies on top. Hard to believe she's already 9!
E-man's First Basketball Game
Emmanuel is playing basketball this session at the Y. We thought we'd try something new. He really loved it. Basketball seems to be a much harder game for five-year-olds than soccer. The rules are little lax, they don't call traveling, in fact I think its encouraged. I think the ball wouldn't move if they didn't travel! Emmanuel scored two baskets and is excited for the next game.
Annie's Field Trip
Annie's preschool class went to the Bell Museum Wednesday. That is a museum where they can learn about natural history and animals. The guide was great taking them through how animals hunt for their dinners and protect themselves. They even got to pet a snake and then they got to look around at some of the "stuffed" animals there.
Sleeping like swans
Quotes from Annie: (out of earshot of Abegail)
A: Mommy we both have peach skin and blonde hair. We are just like twins, except we don't wear the same clothes and twins wear the same clothes.
Quotes from Annie:
A: Mommy, how did you get so smart?
M: I will remind you that you said that someday.
Quotes from Annie & Abegail:
Annie: You're the best Daddy in the whole wide world!
Abegail: And your the best Daddy in all of the Americas!

Happy Birthday Abegail!

Don't you love the way kids KNOW we aren't white or black -- it's peach and brown and coffee colored? At around 3 my kids always called Jerome colorful!

Colorful families.

My son played basketball last year and it was HILARIOUS how the kids played! I am so impressed that your baby got two baskets! Kaish played a whole season with no baskets. He was a little sad about it.
