Miscellaneous Updates

We’ve blogged little of late. There has been a lot going on, even above and beyond the normal busyness which of course accompanies a household of six, esp when 4 of those are under the age of 7! Here’s an abbreviated, but illustrated recap of some of what we have been doing the last few weeks:

celebrating Jonathan’s 5th birthday with friends and family.

enjoying Baby Josiah’s beautiful smiles:

learning to give in-house haircuts to our boys (well, Jay is doing the hard work of cutting – I can only take credit for the photography!)

visiting with our Cousin Peg from Connecticut, who was in Dallas and not only had supper with us, but also got to meet several new family members – what fun we had!!

hosting a jammie party for Abigail’s 7th, complete with 17 of her fellow first graders, pizza, pillows, and the Aristocats.

taking in some wildlife with Abigail’s school class – this was Jay’s first time chaperoning a field trip and according to Mrs. Beller, his extensive memory from growing up in the Pacific Islands really enhanced the class’ experience at the Dallas World Aquarium. yes folks, it would appear that he remembers the name of every fish and sea creature God ever created!!

observing Nicolas plant his first kiss on a much older woman (yes, we’ll be keeping on eye on our little Romeo!) Thanks, Cynthia, for being such a good sport about it!

    I keep noticing the contrast between Josiah kissing a frog and Nicolas kissing Cynthia. BTW, I love the photo update, especially since I was gone for much of it.

    Just shows that a good haircut helps get the girl! Nice job, Jay.

    I also really enjoy the photo updates.

    I love your blog, especially when there are new posts to read! :) Kaleb was sitting in my lap as we looked at your pictures and he gave the heartiest belly laugh when he saw Josiah’s happy grin! I scrolled up and down just to see what he was laughing it, and he’d laugh out loud whenever Josiah’s picture was there. These little guys will have to meet someday!!

    I do all the haircuts around here! You should try the clippers… you can get extra long guides for the top if needed. Once a month, all 5 jonsson men get trimmed, need it or not! Actually, Pablo hasn’t had his first cut yet. I can’t bear to part with any of his cute hair.
