Yesterday, Alex and Adam turned “1” … I don’t know what is more amazing, the fact that mom and I survived the first year, or that they did!! The boys had a special treat as their big sister, Jess, and niece other big sister, Kameran, came to share their special day…

There were balloons galore…and naturally, they were personalized…

Mommy and Kameran helped blow-out blew-out the candles, while the boys wondered what in the world was going on…

Then, they got a piece of cake: “What the heck is that?”

In the end, the sugar ruled the day!

There was no explosion and fortunately, no one was hurt, but there did occur sometime during that quiet Thursday afternoon, a minor devastation in the lavatory of a quiet suburban home. Of course, we rounded-up the usual suspects, but the investigation yielded nothing save staunch denials…

“What’re you looking at me for!”

Adam denies

“I didn’t do it!”

Alex denies

They boys have learned their first lesson in politics: Always maintain plausible deniability.

Well, it’s snowing in PA! Cindy was pretty excited when it started to come down, and didn’t waste any time getting the boys into their winter jackets and rushing them outside for a photo op …

Adam could hardly move … “Danger! Danger! Will Robinson!” 🙂

I don’t know what all the fuss is about, but Mommy is really into this!

I don’t think Daddy is really into snow!

Whenever we go anywhere, Alex will eventually remove one of his shoes. It does no good to put it back on because he’s just going to remove it again. So, I just say “I know” and “thank you” to all the passer-by’s who kindly tell me that he’s lost a shoe.

Shoeless Joe

He looks like such a ragamuffin.
