The annual Francis Film Fesitival was held last weekend. Mark and Marie hosted another great FFF. This year's clips included Wall-e and Iron Man shown outside on a huge white sheet. I can't say I really watched much of either movie, which doesn't bother me. I spent a little more time watching the kids and talking with friends. Maybe when the kids are a little older I'll get a chance to sit and watch the movie. They had a great turn out this year and nice weather. The blow up 'Jumpy House' was new this year and a big hit with all the little ones. Unfortunately, I didn't get any good pictures of the big hit.

Josie took a strong liking to Marie's mom. She sat through a lot of the movie on Ginny's lap.

Pea Pods...No, Squirt Beans

Dinner conversations with a 3 year old can sometimes be interesting.
Tony: Josie, you need to eat your dinner.
Josie: Dad can I have more squirt beans?
Tony: Huh?
Josie: These things dad. They're beans that squirt out peas.

Our Very First Nephew/Cousin

Last Wednesday Tony's brother Tim and his wife Lori had a precious baby boy! We couldn't be happier for them. Andrew arrived on 9-9-09. What a unique birth date. It might actually be one that I can keep in my memory bank. The age gap seems huge between Andrew and Grant when you look at their sizes, but they are less then 4 months apart. Amazing to see how much they grow in four months. My picture of Andrew and Grant together at the hospital didn't turn out all that well. We are visiting them tonight, so when I get one of the boys together I'll post it.

Weeks 13-16

Grant started to roll from his belly to back just a few weeks ago. Another milestone checked off the list. He has not mastered the back to belly roll, only because I think he refuses to learn. He doesn't enjoy being on his belly as much as his back.

Maybe others will agree with me or maybe I just haven't mastered the blogspot features, but I find this program to not be very user-friendly. Because of this, my pictures are from 16 weeks down to 13. It is very bothersome to me not to have them in the right order, but I don't have the patience to upload them again.

After posting this and then viewing the blog I noticed G looks like two completely different little boys from week 15 to 16...funny. I guess it is just the faces he is making that make the two pictures seem so different.

A Baby Boom

Within the last several months 3 of my bestfriends, Melissa, Hollie, and Stacey have had babies. Recently we got the new little ones together (and their older siblings) for a photo shoot. It is amazing to see myself and three of my other best friends awwing at all the little ones. I feel like we were all just running around wild during our high school years.
The carseat picture shows the newest additions in order from youngest to oldest; Sarah, Grant, Violet, and Samuel.
