Does it look like me?

Alex made this for me and told me that it was me. What do you think? He can be very creative with his legos and other toys. His favorite thing to do lately is to play Rummikub with me, Josh, and Aleah in the evenings. I was doubtful that he would be able to figure out how to play, but he learned quickly and wins his share of the games. Go Alex!

Matching Nightgowns

Here we are grandma in our matching nightgowns. Pretty cute!

Genevieve's 4th Birthday

Genevieve was so excited to turn four. She really thought that everything good would happen to her when she turned four, that she would finally be big. I hope she's not disappointed. She goes to school now, but we still have yet to put up her big bed.

It seems like we celebrated her birthday on a couple of different days, so she was a little confused as to when she actually turned four. We went to the movies, went out to lunch where she wanted to go, and also got together with grandpa and grandma and aunt Emily. She helped me decorate her birthday cake(s).

Preschool Projects

Here's Genevieve showing off her first preschool projects. She absolutely loves preschool and wishes she could go every day ( she goes on Tuesdays and Thursdays).

New Glasses

I think Josh looks pretty stylish in his new glasses. His last ones had a silver metal frame, which I thought were nice too, but change is good every once in a while.

My Big Announcement

Well, I'll just put it out there I guess. Josh and I are expecting our fifth child. Can you believe it! I couldn't at first and it took a while for me to get over the shock. It seems though that it is really happening, we are expecting this little one on Valentine's Day.

Christmas in July (aka Grandma Cook's B-day)

We have a lot of birthdays in a row around here. This time we celebrated Grandma Cook's birthday with a taco dinner and a "Christmas Tree" birthday cake (the star on top somehow got cut off in the picture).

First Day of School '08

It's the first day of school around here and the kids are definitely ready to go. They were anxious to head off early this morning with all of their bags of school supplies. Aleah is in third grade and Alex is in first grade this year. I'm nervous for them, but I'm sure they'll do just fine.
