Marathon Man

Kenny ran a marathon yesterday.  Yeah, I'm impressed too. It's not on my bucket list, but it's on his and now it's crossed off forever.   

 He is already talking about the possibility of running future marathons (Beijing has one in the spring and the fall), 
but I think he'll spend some time recovering before he actually signs up to run another one.

  He did pretty well for his first, and maybe only, time and we're all very proud of him!

Yea, marathon man!

Nancy Strikes Again

We had our family pictures taken in September by our favorite photographer and dear friend, Nancy.  Despite having to work with some very uncooperative and less than willing subjects, she worked her magic once again.  My goal is always 1 good family group and 1 decent shot of each of the kids.  Mission accomplished.  Thanks, Nancy!

All my pumpkins

One of the residual benefits of all of my children being born in the same month is that things like coats and costumes fit everyone at the perfect season.  Before Caleb's first Halloween I found a pumpkin costume on ebay for the bargain price of $5.  

We certainly have gotten our money's worth...

Happy (belated) Halloween

For the sake of posterity, here are my little ones celebrating one of their most favorite holidays.

 Caleb as a samurai.

 Isaac as the white ninja.

Baby Claire, the cutest pumpkin on the block, 
at least we think so.
