We've been enjoying the Elphamorphoses from friends so I thought I'd give it a try for our family. Here's the link to our little elves! It seems you'll have to cut and paste, because for some reason when I ask it to link, the link doesn't show up in the post! Go figure....

Hard to believe it's the Christmas season already!

I've been trying and trying to upload a video clip of Evelyn, and no matter what I do it doesn't load - Sigh! I'll have to be content and give you a photo of the little squirt who has taken to almost crawling!!! It's hilarious to watch her scooch across the floors these days (and scary, because she's usually after something she shouldn't have....). Here's she's just hanging out with her big sis, Keren.

I've been wanting to show off this cool picture of Clare from when we were apple-picking with Grammy G the other week:

We also had fun making applesauce the next day....

So I just found out that if I use FireFox rather than Safari as my browser I can post video clips! This opens a whole new world of blogging....

Keren's fifth birthday was Thursday, September 27, and we were excited to celebrate with her a bit at school (not to mention all the partying at home). Check out this clip of Keren "blowing out" her candle at school.

I just saw this quiz on one of my favorite blogs (author Karen Hancock) and thought I'd try it out. I thought for sure after all the places I've lived in life it would come out as "no accent", but apparently the Philadelphia roots go deeper than I thought. But REALLY, how can it be truly Philadelphian when I know that "don" and "dawn" sound completely different!!!

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: Philadelphia

Your accent is as Philadelphian as a cheesesteak! If you're not from Philadelphia, then you're from someplace near there like south Jersey, Baltimore, or Wilmington. if you've ever journeyed to some far off place where people don't know that Philly has an accent, someone may have thought you talked a little weird even though they didn't have a clue what accent it was they heard.

Well! It's high time I started doing something with this blog. We've had big news in our house in the past week and want to share it with all :) .

We were thrilled to welcome "Evelyn Ruth" to our family on Thursday, April 26, 2007. She weighed in at 8 lbs., 11.3 oz., and measured 21 inches in length. She also has a thick head of dark-brown hair and bright eyes to check out the world! Big sister Keren hasn't put in her vote quite yet as to whether we should keep her--babies are a little unpredictable, after all. Big sister Clarissa, on the other hand, is excited that we have brought her her very own baby, who reacts when she kisses her!

You can see more of the family fun in our online album. Check out
