a new nephew

My sister is 38 weeks pregnant with my nephew and we all couldn't be more excited to meet him.  Sunday afternoon we went to this pond by her house to take some pictures.  Here are a few of my favorites.

Liesl the sidekick

This is a Liesl's part on the 10 min video I mentioned in the last post.

Porter the personality

My computer is usually off limits to the kids.  Tonight we got home late, the kids joined the sailing team at school, and my computer was open so, Liesl and Porter started messing around with photo booth.  I was getting dinner together and I hear Porter talking about Liesl's art.  I quickly realized he was recording himself.  He went on to record another 10 min piece after this.  I just love how he talks and enunciates so carefully.

Snow 2

A few weeks after our trip to see Sea World to see "snow", my friend and I took our girls to Julian.  To my surprise there were still patches of snow on the side of the road so, we had to stop and play!

Snow 1

Up until a few weeks ago our kids had never seen snow before.  I feel weird writing this but, I took the kids to Sea World to see snow for the first time.  It almost feels like saying "I carried a watermelon".  When I told the kids that we were going to see snow, Liesl ran and got a warm puffy jacket from her closet, size 2t, that still fits her.  Why I have saved that jacket for all these years is crazy but, it still fits her!  She ended up not wearing it when she found out that it was not going to be snowing.  After the fun and a little unsatisfying experience at Sea World, both kids requested a trip to see real snow next year.
