Max's First Haircut

Today was a milestone for Max...his first haircut.  He was fabulous! Seriously.  No tears (at least not from him), no squirming...nothing but smiles.  Parker and Carter went first while Max watched them sitting in the chair.  He seemed to know exactly what to do when it was his turn. 


Looking so big!


Sitting so still!

All smiles!
Thanks Ms. Crista!  You did a fabulous job!

Soccer Saturdays

There is no other place I would rather spend my Saturday mornings than at the soccer field.  Where else can you buy giant pixy stixs and airheads at 8:30 in the morning?  Just kidding...We love cheering for the boys on game day!  It rained a lot overnight Friday and right up until game time on Saturday.  We all know that soccer + rain = a great time (at least for the boys)! Here are a few photos of them in action.
Carter does a great job keeping the ball under control.

Carter taking a hit (from a teammate)...ouch!

Good game, good game!

He is such a cutie!

Look at him go!

Good effort!
We've really enjoyed our season of Upward!

February Flashback

Feeding our feathered friends is always something that our boys enjoy.  During the summer, they love to wake up, grab a few slices of bread, and sit on the front porch while tossing small pieces onto the sidewalk.  It's always a few minutes of peace and quiet during our busy day.  In the winter, they always make sure the bird feeder is filled with seed and sit patiently at the window with binoculars.  Sometimes they like to make the birds a "gourmet" treat.  Here are a few photos...

A little help from dad.

cones with peanut butter...

...and taking a bite for himself!

All the necessary supplies.

Only 14 more school days until our morning bird feeding tradition resumes, but who's counting?
