Athletic Field Day!

This was the first year of all the kids being at the same school and so they got to enjoy Athletic Field Day together! This is always an amazing day of friendly competition and physical challenges. Mia won the tug of war for the 4th year in a row!  Mad fun...

Cool Pic!

This weekend we took the kids to play around in Old Town Scottsdale. They climbed a sculpture and I snapped this cool pic...  Love these kids!

Family Bike Ride!

Here we are enjoying this beautiful winter weather with a family bike ride! Note the Twins' incessant laziness...

Mia Pah Necklaces!

For all of Aubrey's desire to control and dominate her twin brother, sometimes she is overwhelmingly sweet to him...  She insisted on buy 'best friends' necklaces for them while at the mall the other day!  So sweet.

Little Marshie!

Our little Marshall has become a beloved part of the family! I thought my kids had it good, until I met this guy...  Wow, talk about spoiled!

Poor Little Girl...

Poor little Aubrey has horrendous asthma and lung issues...  When everyone else gets a slight cold, she gets severely congested and it usually turns into bronchitis or worse! So here is our little trooper in her sleeping mask, enduring her nightly breathing treatment. I supposed minor lung issues are a small price to pay for being born at 29 weeks and being otherwise perfectly healthy! If not a little crazy...  Baahhaaaaaaaaa

Working Girl...

Mia spent the day working at Daddy's office this past week! She made copies, organized folders and couldn't wait for lunch!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Happy Valentine's Day to my beautiful bride!

Arcade Time!

The kids couldn't wait for the new arcade in our basement to be decorated. They got down there, fired up the games, and didn't come out for hours! Spoiled little punks... I want their childhood!

Love Bugs!

Look at how the love bugs fell asleep the other night?  Precious...

The Greatest Gift Of All...

For a Tom Boy like Mia, what could be better than your very first set of tools!! Grandpa came in from Ohio and took Mia to Sears for a pretty serious first set of tools...  Mia was so excited and focused that she sat in the garage for several hours writing her name on all of her tools, and organizing her tool box.  Could anything make a father more proud?!?!  Nope...

Pie in the Face?

For Mia's birthday, she got the silliest game! You rotate the handle and every few clicks the handful of whipped cream smashes you in the face...  The kids loved it, as you can see with Aubs!

Pretty Girl!

No words needed...  She sure is beautiful!

A Marshall Arrangement!

For Mia's birthday, her dog Marshall sent her a flower arrangement fashioned after himself...  That was awfully sweet of Mommy, I mean Marshall!!

Happy 9th Birthday Mia!!

This video might just be the cutest thing I've ever seen! Mia's school, Veritas, really fosters citizenship and being a patriot. In short, the kids support each other. Here is her class singing happy birthday to her at the end of the day.  The smile on Mia's face is priceless! As are the hands in the pockets...  Gotta love it!
