We are on a bit of a road trip, visiting family in both Valparaiso and Indianapolis. Last night, we stopped to stay the night in Valpo and visited with Tricia (who is in town with Sebastian, Audrey, and Paige).

Christmas Day in Indianapolis and Frankfort

In back, that would be Sebastian putting on his Darth Vader helmet. I wish I had some video/audio to share, because in addition to changing his voice… it also spits out Vader quotes. Which, coming from his short frame, was actually just hilarious.

Kirt’s Surprise 60th Birthday Party

A large part of our early visit to Atlanta (in addition to the fact that we can’t make it there this December), is that we were in town to celebrate Kirt’s 60th birthday party. Anne had set up a surprise party, and Kirt was none the wiser.

Woodworking and Cupcakes in Frankfort

A dangerous combination: children and sprinkles. The containers for sprinkles have extremely wide spouts, and really are designed for adults. When a kid gets a hold of one of these things and pours, the sprinkles just come out like they’re pouring water.

Xmas in Georgia, Part 2

One great gift that the Fords got was a Karaoke set. Shortly after it was plugged in, all the kids began taking turns singing songs. As you can probably imagine, it was both awesome and incessant for the remainder of the day:

Happy 4th Birthday, Audrey!

On Sunday, Liz and I trekked down to Frankfort to hang out with Tricia and the kids (who are in town for a week, visiting from Georgia).

Shortly after we arrived, the girls got changed into their bathing suits and a mini-pool was filled up in the backyard. Despite the warm weather, the water from the hose was pretty icy cold. Despite several pitchers of hot water from the kitchen, it was still a pretty icy in there.

Early Christmas in Atlanta

As is our annual tradition, we had an early Christmas with the Holder family at their home in Atlanta, GA. Recently, the Fords moved down to Atlanta as well, and are currently staying with the Holders. Needless to say, we had a very full house – which, over the holidays… is the best kind of house.

Babysitting Audrey and Sebastian

On Saturday, Tricia was visiting and showing her friend Katarina a bit around downtown Chicago. While the two of them were checking out the Art Institute, Liz and I were looking after Audrey and Sebastian. For the first half of the morning, I was actually out and about doing errands (borrowing Tricia’s car, since mine is currently at the shop due to hail damage).

Photo Shoot in Frankfort

Over the weekend, Liz and I headed down to Frankfort to participate in some family photos. A friend of Tricia’s is a photographer, and was going to do some group/family pictures for all of us. What normally is a 45 minute trip ended up taking a little over two hours. Moments after we got into the car, we realized that…

Happy 1st Birthday, Sebastian!

Today Liz and I drove to Merrillville to visit Tricia and Darryl’s family, and to help celebrate Sebastian’s first birthday. As is the tradition, he got to have an entire cake to himself. Here he is, getting his first taste: After a while, he began to get a little more adventurous. Sebastian, starting to get into the cake a bit…
