* happy 5th birthday sweet girl *
Edit: I actually wrote this post way back in August, but I didn’t end up getting pictures from this summer from Mom until last weekend. The kids had quite the extended birthdays this year. In all, I believe they had about 4 or 5 different celebrations. May was an incredibly busy month with us moving [...]
I present to you, Cap’n Jack Sparrow and Rapunzel.
We carved our pumpkins tonight, and this year Xavier and Ali finally were old enough to carve their own. They did a great job, and did pretty much all of it by themselves. We traced the things for them onto the pumpkins, and they did a great job carving along the lines. They weren’t too [...]
What happened to summer? I can’t believe its already October and we are having these nice and brisk 40/50° fall mornings. We’ve been in our new house for about 5 weeks now, and we still aren’t quite settled yet, but we are getting ever closer. So far we’ve painted Ali’s room as well as our [...]
We are officially back in Ohio! Its been a very hectic few weeks, but we are finally getting settled into a routine for the summer. Our routine is set to be disrupted yet again in late August, but I’m getting ahead of myself. Let’s start back at the beginning. Last fall, Meg and I decided [...]
I’m a little late in getting these up, but it’s that time of year again, the May birthday rush! This year for Ali’s party we had a pixie/enchanted forest themed party, and all the kids that came dressed up as pixies or dragons (just Xavier really ). I think it was probably our most successful [...]
Texas got nearly a foot of snow! Crazily enough, it’s already nearly all melted. But it was fun while it was here, and we played in it for two days. Megan even got Friday off of work (I stayed home, but worked from home about half the day). We had a blast outside; Megan built [...]
As with each of the years that have passed since we were first married, 2009 flew by with such speed that we’re left looking back wondering where the time went. This year marked my first full year as a working mamma with a full-time career to handle in addition to raising the kiddos. It’s been a [...]
Just a quick blurb to let the world know that the Kephart household is now officially a diaper free zone. Go Ali!
The kids had an absolute blast during trick or treating this year. Ali went as a pixie, and Xavier was a dragon. The past couple years they’ve had fun of course, but they pretty much had to ride in the wagon in between houses and we couldn’t go for very long before they got tired. [...]
…drum-roll please…. Ali is finally willing to sit on the toilet! Of course, if I had anticipated that she would love sitting (and sitting and sitting and sitting) on the potty for ridiculously long periods of time, I might not have been quite so eager to get her potty-trained. Wait, what? You want [...]
First, I will acknowledge that yes, it’s been a heck of a long time since I’ve posted anything on here. I promise you, I’ve received more than enough flack about it from my handsome hubby (who reserves the right to make me call him that for approximately three more days, thanks in part to the [...]
Alright, at long last we’ve got some photos from this summer. It has been a really busy and ridiculously HOT summer so far, but we’ve made it to the zoo once, and the pool nearly every weekend. So here is the latest album with a ton of great pics. http://www.joshandmeg.net/gallery/v/josh_and_meg/summer-2009/?g2_page=1
Our little Ali-gator will be two tomorrow morning, so to celebrate, we threw her a huge party tonight, complete with friends, pizza, presents, and a one-of-a-kind, custom-made KNUFFLE BUNNY CAKE!!!! Now, for those of you who don’t know what Knuffle Bunny is, let me explain. Knuffle Bunny and Knuffle Bunny, Too are Ali’s favorite books. [...]
Wow, what a weekend we had. It was ridiculously busy, but over all it was a lot of fun and we got some awesome pictures out of it. To start things off, my parent’s and sister flew in on Thursday afternoon to visit and help us with the kids during the Tabije-Walters wedding. So we [...]
New album from Easter. Check it out here.
Well, we’ve been as busy as possible since we got back from our Ohio trip, but I have managed to put together a pretty good album of the best pictures from the trip. Check it out here. And enjoy it, because I managed to break our camera the first week back; so these might be [...]
It’s been pretty crazy around here lately. After the loss of lappy, I was pretty much forced to take a break from most computer activity, so I started playing Xbox 360 a bit more frequently at night. (And by a bit, he means every single night.) Since the desk and 360 was (“were” Joshua. You’re [...]
Pebbles and Bam-Bam… Monsters from “Monsters, Inc.” This year, Halloween included costume changes for the kiddos. For their school parties (and parade) on Friday, I made them little Pebbles and Bam-Bam costumes to wear. Josh and I decided that their monster costumes would not only be too hot to wear all day, but if you’ve [...]
New photos! We got a chance to take a trip to the zoo this past weekend, so there are lots of good pictures from that as well as some random ones of us around the house. There are also some adorable pictures of the kids’ first experience with a little baby. We babysat Craig and [...]
This may be the best album yet Lots of awesome ones inside.
Wow, what a great 3 day weekend we had over the 4th. The past month has been pretty crazy for our family. Meg started her new job, which led to the kids starting daycare, and Meg and I had to figure out who was dropping off and picking up Xavier and Ali. We’ve finally got [...]
Maybe it’s selfish, but since Xavier is the spitting image of Josh and mimics everything he does, I can’t help but get a little excited whenever Ali shows signs of taking after her mama. I secretly love when she looks at me with that look that clearly says, “No way lady,” or when she fights [...]
Thank you ‘Economic Stimulus’. Obviously I think the Economic Stimulus Act is a completely idiotic ‘solution’ to the slow economy; but, in our current position in life we happen to benefit greatly from it (married, two kids, below the monetary thresholds). So, to do as we are supposed to do with the money, we dumped [...]
