Alexander and Jordan
November 10 - January 10, 2008

 

Alexander and Jordan: 
    Periodically we have performance night.  That means that we take turns sitting at the piano to do some kind of performance.  Sometimes we sing, sometimes we play the piano and sometimes we do both.  Afterwards we bow to the audience.  Alexander's favorite performance is a story about dragons.  Jordan's favorite is a song about naughty cats who have to sit in a chair.
    Alexander had a small birthday party at home and a bigger one at daycare.  Of course Jordan got some toys too given Alexander got a new bike on Jordan's birthday.  This time of the year is like one continuous party - Christmas Eve, Christmas, New Year's Eve, New Year's (Baba Nadia's birthday), Alexander's birthday, and Daddy's birthday.  I don't mind because it is more chance for presents.
    Baba Nadia and Dede Eduard stayed with us for a week.  Daddy and Dede Eduard sanded, spackled, primed and painted the foyer.  It looks really good.  It is like brand new.  Mommy's job was to protect the piano.  She did a good job.
      While they were here we had lots of time to visit and spent some time siteseeing.  We went to the Science Museum where we saw the Pompeii ruins and then a bunch of dinosaurs.
