A household with 3 young children can be hectic. Sometimes you have to cut corners. Sometimes you have to get help wherever you can.
I don't blog as much as I used to, or as much as I'd like, but these 3 keep us pretty busy.

The other night they hosted a Mommy night at Henry's school. That morning he told Mommy he wanted to "look his nicest" while pointing to his tie. Before they headed back out to school that evening, he remembered and ran upstairs.

This morning on our way to a birthday party at monkey island Henry revealed that he wanted to be a workerman when he grows up, like the kind that builds buildings. Miller followed with his goal in life: to be a pirate where he'll sit on his ship.

And has anyone seen Henry Jay, the animal rescuer?

Also, Frannie loves rice cereal.

Snow or No Snow?

A couple of weeks ago we had no snow so we thought we'd go for a walk.

But now...? With a couple of inches of snow on the ground, we sled!

And Frannie? She keeps herself entertained.

Happy 2012!! (British Style)

This year we rung in the new year at a friend's house in Oak Park with their family and other local families. Lots of kids. Barely enough adults. Plenty of snacks and desserts, and a healthy mix of both adult beverages and juice boxes. In order to let the kids enjoy the fun of the countdown and ball drop we celebrated on London time, and we were back home by 8 PM with some children who were wound up and wired from brownie overdoses.

Today we burned off some steam and beat the chill at Monkey Island indoor park.

Also, we've been taking a lot of pictures of Frannie.

With the boys.
