Milo's first week...

Happy family!

 Frankie referred to Kate's hospital room as "momma's office".

Milo is here!

Milo Thomas Dowers born 12/17/14 at 11:46 pm weighing in at a whopping 7lbs 2oz! Momma and baby handled everything like champs and are doing great.

Ben and Frankie were super excited about their new baby brother and Frankie wasted no time in trying to give him a tickle.

Frankie's 3rd Birthday Party!

The theme she chose was "Peppa Pig eating tacos." Well of course, those are her two favorite things!

Pinewood Derby!

Ben's friend Morty is having a Pinewood Derby race theme for his birthday party in a couple of weeks. Ben is super excited about that! In fact, today he wanted to get back to sanding first thing in the morning (trying to skip breakfast, and cartoons!)...

This weekend we made a lot of progress and Ben was really excited to choose his favorite blue paint at the auto parts store. Not to be outdone, Frankie is working on a racer car too. She's demanding it be pink! Ugh.

 Frankie makes hilarious faces when she's working on a project (or maybe just when I'm trying to take her photo!)

 Yes Frankie, we're all shocked by Ben's good sportsmanship and offering to help!

With a few test runs down the skeeball ramp, then fine-tuning, we headed to Morty's birthday race... and smoked the competition! Until we clued everyone in on the use of magic graphite dust.
