The manifestation of genetics can bring about a variety of emotions. On one hand, a physical resemblance can give a sense of immortality to a parent. If you find yourself being trampled by a heard of stampeding antelope tomorrow, you can be small-hoofed to death with the calming knowledge that your earlobes will be enjoyed for generations to come.
We came across some old-timey photo-stills showing that our girls are wearing at least some of our genes. Nyuk-Nyuk.

The older picture is Becky. The older baby is Lucy.

We pray every day that Sam won't develope her father's cardiac dysrhythmia or shoulder hair.

After sitting at a computer for a grueling 45 minutes, Jon is now a licensed nurse in the state of Missouri. Since the consequence of not passing the NCLEX is something like a six-month waiting period before retesting and possible re-evaluation of employment status, Becky is now a wife living in a state relief.

Chillin' in da bumbo, yo.

We had number of pictures with no coherent theme. Maybe "Super-Cutsey Buttons" or "Evil in a Mask of Flesh." Anyway, here are some pictures.

Go ahead and try to tell me that Sam isn't a miniature version of that kid from "Christmas Story."


This is how we dress Sam to sneak her into the men's room with Jon.

This is how we dress Jon to sneak him into the ladie's room with Sam.

My best friend from grade school has found the love of her life and is getting married in March! She's also found employment in a 19th century brothel. We always knew you'd make something of yourself, Angela!

This is here because we couldn't post without a picture of Lucy.

Lucy's 5th Horcrux

Lucy's starting to act more like a little human. She'll smile and occasionally laugh if you have a good joke about Europeans that she hasn't already heard.

Sam has begun reprimanding her toys. The other day, after she was scolded for some mildly aggressive behavior, Sam brought several dolls one-by-one to her grandmother, stating "Dis doll hit me. She needs say sorry."

Other developments include counting to 16, excessive use of the word "scary", and retractable fangs.

Becky is working on Harry Potter 7. Jon cut his scalp with a razor.

That's all.

Dad rarely feels comfortable wearing this shirt anymore, but that doesn't mean it shouldn't be enjoyed.
