Julian's 2nd Birthday!

Happy Birthday Julian!
mmm birthday cupcakes.

Here's Julian and Buzz, he has barely put Buzz down since he got this and had to be talked into letting big brother look at it for even a few minutes.  When he saw the package for it he started dancing around and yelling "Buzz Lightyear!  Buzz Lightyear!"

Julian turns 2!

What is this?
Big Brother offers to lend a hand.
Julian on his new scooter, its just like big brother's
Heres how you do it Julian.
Now they can form a gang.  Sarah got one too so they can all go out together.

Happy Birthday Grandma Humphrey!

Mom and Julian share a birthday!  Happy Birthday Mom!  
Here is Mom on Sarah's Scooter, pretty impressive!  Happy 70th!

Friends and presents!

Niko's friends brought him lots of presents and they all played together really well, Sarah referee'd the unwrapping.
Here is the crew having Birthday cupcakes.  Julian is at the head of the table, Lizzy is on the left, then Niko and Braden, Lincoln and Otto on the right.
Here is Niko and Braden, Niko is going in for second, maybe it was thirds.
Julian and me, notice he still has Buzz and Woody.

Niko Turns Four

When is everybody getting here?
Here is a good picture of Julian and Grandpa, Niko got Buzz and Woody and Julian thinks they are his.  He has scarcely put them down since Niko unwrapped them.  Its been a test for big brother's patience.

Thank god for the summer weather, Niko has been wanting to play in the water and there is nothing like some high 80s to pull that off.  He also wanted to test an umbrella, and thought I should help.  It was pretty fun.

Spring Time!

Julian is getting big, he'll be two in a little over a month!
He's getting around good, underneath the swing set is one of his favorite places to hang out.
This winter we watched a lot of Toy Story, a Buzz Lightyear spaceship was in order.
Here is buzz and Spidey, the flew to moon and fought Craven the Hunter and the evil emporer Zurg.
They also practiced flying like Superman on the swing set.

Blizzard 2011

So we got a little snow in Kansas, took this video today around noon and again at 4:30.  Weather report says we got 10".   Which is just an absurd amount.  There were 35 mph winds and and the tempature was around 15 all day.   Tomorrow the real tempature is supposed to be around -5.

Julian Playing Soccer

Julian is dying to get out on the field with Niko and the bigger kids.  Fortunately Happy Feet has some practice boxes that we take him to during Niko's games.  He's getting pretty good!

Niko and the Scooter


The Boys got to go out and play in the snow.  We actually managed to get them in winter clothes after about an hour of struggle.
Julian was a little overwhelmed but eventually got adventursome and made it out into the yard
Niko loved the atv.  This may be the proudest I've ever seen him.

Christmas 2010

The boys got matching Jayhawk gear for Christmas.
I think this is Christmas Eve, Julian was having a good time with the trains
We went to see the big man at Crown Center.  Niko was finally cool calm and collected and managed to ask Santa for Red Mac this year.  Julian didn't trust the old guy at all.

Soccer Game

Hey Aunt Camille, Uncle Roger, Aunt Margaret, Uncle Jack and Jay!

Realize its been a long time since we put anything up here so here is a vid of Niko playing soccer and scoring his first goal!  Enjoy and I'm going to try and put up some photos from Christmas and the recent snow here soon.
