Ben's birthday card to Frankie...

That's Ben and Frankie going for a canoe ride on her birthday.

Ben's 1st letter to Santa

Sounds pretty reasonable!

A Christmas bomb just went off...

Tony and Ben made me gluten free gnocchi the other night. They had a great time cooking together, and they turned out delicious. Thanks, you cute chefs!

Look out! She can walk! (well, almost)

Frankie's very favorite thing to do these days is walking practice. She's down to holding one hand, and can take a few steps on her own going between mom and dad. And she's as proud as can be!

Frankie in magenta

Mom's mom visit

My mother came for a visit a couple weekends ago. Ben liked having her read books to him, and Frankie thought it was pretty funny making her play fetch with napkins at dinnertime.

Shop helper

Ben has become Dad's little helper with shop projects. He's also been bugging Tony to start working on his own car. So it begins.

Pumpkin party

We're trying to get caught up on the blog entries... A couple of weeks ago we had a great pumpkin party in the yard. Ben has such great friends in our neighborhood, and the leaves were perfect for piling up and throwing around.
