HAIRCUT BY BRENDAN

this is a funny video i took a few weeks ago of brendan giving karl a haircut with a toy power tool. maybe he'll take after his aunt sara and go into the cosmetology field :)

GOODBYE CRIBS, HELLO BIG BOY BEDS






so, we finally did it. the twins have been climbing out of their cribs now for a few weeks, so we decided to transition them into toddler beds. last night was the first night, and it was quite the nightmare. i was up there yelling at them to stay in their beds from 7pm to 9pm. finally karl went in there and laid down the law, then it seemed to settle down. they were up twice in the night, but otherwise it seemed to go ok. everyone keeps saying the first few nights are the worst, let's hope so.

CHI-TOWN OVERNIGHT






we took justin to chicago on the train this past weekend for an overnighter. it was fun to ride down on the train. stayed in a nice hotel. did a little shopping on michigan avenue, ate at the cheesecake factory, took in a penguins/blackhawks hockey game and spent the day at the field museum. i, unbelievably, forgot my camera so we had to use karl's cell phone camera. the pics did not turn out too bad considering.
