dancing with the kids

both kids are big dancers. its so much fun to watch as ezekiel is learning actions for songs (itsy bitsy spider, wheels on the bus) and diedre is inventing some very graceful ballerina type moves. she will set up her little music player and just dance around and around and around. last week, she brought it to the bank and was about to do a routine for everyone in line, but she got a little too shy to go through with it.

recent cute sibling pics

i really needed diedre to get a head start on a nap when i couldnt join her one day. so i told her to go lie down with ezekiel. this is how they were sleeping when i came in. so cute!

diedre has been asking to cuddle with ezekiel almost every day lately

last night they were wearing their new housecoats (Christmas gifts from Grammy & Grandpa). they look so dapper.

Our Happy New Year

here are eli and ezekiel playing together on New Year's Day morning. we stayed over and our friend's house so we wouldnt have to be on the roads with was a good party. we played alot of wii (my brother and i both got one for Christmas) and had a great discussion til the wee hours of the morning. just like old times.

diedre's circles are starting to look like the letters from her name...

a fun day at McD's with friends. all ezekiel could do is crawl in the bottom of this slide. thankfully they go up too steep for him to actually get away from me.

now that ezekiel can walk, we discovered he could play games like ring around the rosey

on a sad note, our kitty missy (only 8 months) got hit by a car just outside our house on tuesday night. it is reinforcing to diedre how dangerous cars are. R.I.P. Jan 15 08.
