Double Birthday Party

This year Owain and Jimmy agreed to having a shared party for their birthday's since they are only 3 weeks apart.  What a great idea!

We had 13 friends over and we painted birdhouses, ate pizza, massacred a pinata, ate cake and opened presents.  The weather was perfect and so was the party!  Here's to 4 and 6 Jimmy and Owain!

Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's

    Time for a little catch-up.  Thanksgiving was spent here in Seattle with our friends Michael and Natasha and their daughter Frankie.  Besides a near disaster with the oven breaking we had a lovely time.  Had to cook the turkey at a friends house but I ended up with a new stove.  I really should take a picture of that since its been my pride and joy for the last 2 months.

 As soon as the Christmas season started we began doing all the things that Seattlites do, namely going to see the gingerbread houses downtown at the Sheraton.  Not sure if it was worth an hour of queuing but the castles were pretty spectacular.

 Christmas morning was a crazy toy BONANZA.  They played with their toys for 2 days straight, I didn't even have to turn on the t.v. (that says a lot around here)

We threw a New Year's Eve party rather than try to find a babysitter and brave the world outside.  The kids were great and a few made it all the way to midnight!

Jeff came to visit just before New Years through the first week of Jan.  What fun we had!

Owie's Birthday and stats

 Owain turned 5 last Thursday but had his party the weekend before.  We had it at Woodland Park Zoo in the carousel house.  It was a hit with the kids, but how could it not be with unlimited rides on the merry-go-round and cupcakes and goody bags?

The day after Owain's birthday both of the boys had their annual check-up at the doctor's.  Owain had to get his last two childhood immunizations.  He was very brave and didn't cry at all!  Their current stats are: Owain-height 44" weight 44.8lbs he is in the 75th percentile for height and weight
Jimmy-height 40" weight 36.8lbs he is in the 90th percentile for height and weight

   It has been nearly nine full months since the last blog entry and I'm ashamed!  There's not much going on the in the documenting of the boys lives so I'm going to give it another shot.  A quick and brief recap would be-last Christmas Grandma Lyn and Auntie Jean came for a visit and Uncle Robert was here for Xmas and New Year's.  John got a new job in February at Z2Live, in April the boys and I spent 10 days in Arizona with Grandma and Grandpa, in June we went to France for 2 1/2 weeks and when we got back the boys started school and Emma came to visit, whew that's all the major things I think.
   Currently John and Owain are on a manly camping trip and Jiimmy and I are holding down the fort while they're gone.  So far we took the bus down to Market Street and went to the toy store and out for sushi (Jimmy's choice).  We're both kind of tuckered out and coming down with colds so we are back at home to play with new toys, oh yeah Jimmy had his 3rd birthday 4 days ago :) and maybe have a movie night later.
