Goodnight 2012

Though our posting frequency has been down ever since Frannie G. came on the scene, (evidently managing 3 children, 2 careers, 1 marriage, and 1 household, is so time-consuming it takes precedence over blog postings), we're thankful we have found all sorts of ways to keep the ones we love and miss up to speed on our little family here in Oak Park. From Facebook to Instagram to the postings we still make here, we do this for you just as much as we do it for us. Sure it serves us as a way to catalog major events and milestones, but it also helps us feel that much more connected to all of you who visit us here. On our way back from our holidays in Minneapolis we spent the night in a motel. The boys were fascinated by the motel phone and proceeded to make many fake phone calls. Like Miller's sweet little message to Ruth below. I'm also including some highlights from our holidays in Minneapolis. Sure the kids were sick and we had to make some doctor visits (doesn't that always seem to be the case around the holidays or when we travel with the children?), but it was also filled with family fun, great meals, and a very merry Christmas.

Up Up and Away

Henry was practicing his football moves and started hurdling the fire truck. Miller watched his big brother do it and decided to try it himself.

He had some degree of success.

Miller Edison, you are pure comedy gold. It's hard to believe you've never seen a Chris Farley movie or skit.

Motocross Boss

They're doing some work on the local baseball diamond and left it in a state of mounds and divots. We took our bikes for a spin on them and loved it.

Camel Lot

If it's October, then it must be farm time for pumpkin picking, apple eating, and camel riding. Wait, what? On the way into Goebberts farm
At the pig races
Animals at the petting zoo. I don't recall ever seeing a tiger cub close-up before
Mommy and Frannie
Out in the fields
Attack Daddy
Brothers in line on their way to camel rides
And now it is time to ride a camel
Frannie at dinner time. No pants. Socks.
