Wii-induced mellowness

Thea loves her new Wii game, Monster High! She connects it much more to her everyday life than other Wii games we have (Lego Harry Potter, Lego Batman, Lego Indy Jones, and Lego Star Wars, as well as Clone Wars and Lego My Ego - ooops, sorry, I couldn't resist.)

Wii Mania on Christmas!

Liam got Pirates of the Carribean! Lego Jack Sparrow is hilarious.

presently...Liam's unwrapping!

Liam loved his sixth birthday sushi dinner, and the wonderful presents he received: some Wii games, a remote control helicopter, a skateboard, and (from his sister) a finger skateboard set with ramps, etc. Donuts are waiting for breakfast...well, after breakfast!

At Kayleigh's birthday party

the playground was awesome, and Thea and Liam got to watch skateboarders at the skate park.
Thea posed for me, but Liam was more elusive.

All's well in the big playground!

New Amsterdam

Thea took this and the next two pictures of the interior of this gorgeous theatre. We saw Mary Poppins, and it was stunningly produced, wonderfully acted, and the staging (sets, clothing, sound, etc) was beautiful...impecable.

Detail above the stage

I wish I had a better camera to get some of this.

Box seats?

They're too grand for that title!

What a beautiful Play-ce!

Almost like Thea's big sister

Leah was so sweet all day hanging out with us. There could not have been a better companion for our field trip group.

Leah gives the headdress a try

It fits!! We went to a really cool Western Store near Canal and Broadway. They were playing Kraftwerk's Man-Machine over the stereo, and Had lots of cool stuff.

On the road again

On our way to Lake Artemesia. It's probably about a 4-5 mile round trip from our house, so it's great exercise for the kids - and wears them out pretty well.

First time on a driving range

The kids loved hitting a bucket of golf balls this morning. A golf course worker at Paint Branch gave each of them a cool pastel golf ball (Thea took pink, Liam purple). Liam shows here what a blast he had!

Thea's golf pose!

After a great shot, she does this and makes that clicking noise with her tongue that says, "yeah, I am just that good!"

Liam's training wheels are next!

To come off that is - he loves his bike so much, just like his sister.
