What's up with Mel?

Don't worry - if you look closely, it's just Howard. And... She may be trying to start a new fashion trend
or maybe she's just having fun with hand-me-downs (or in this case -ups, since they're from a younger but taller friend), but at least her - um- ensemble is modest! Memories are made on Sundays... At least in this house ;-)

Suzie's last Black Gems show night

Oops, I meant above. See what's below. (I feel so confusing...)

Those crazy young'uns

The first really nice day, and we find Suzie and Abi soaking up sun. Yeah, Abi loves to snuggle up - or is Suzie snuggling Abi?
Below, you'll see Suzie at her most charming, along with the other Black Gems, at the last show of the year. (Sorry, no performance shots -- no way to get close enough; you'll have to come home for a visit to see her in action!)

Scenes at the Gibbys after David joined the family- and while Granny was there

Here's a sweet moment with our new mommy, her new baby, and his biggest fan: "Are you tute? You are tute!"

Who knows if he'll be a thumbsucker, but on his first day of real wakefulness, li'l Davey tried out his thumb. And Grandma caught it! And Natalie is showing off her new gap--losing teeth is fun for a few years...

What sisters do late at night...

A new box of Peanut Butter Cap'n Crunch was cause for a late night silly session for Mel, AJ and Alisa... They may grow up and go away, but getting together (in this case at Gibby's)almost guarantees girls will be giggling. ;->

Three of the Four Musketeers...

Surprise visits brought these three cousins together at the Gibbys the weekend after David was born. Though size is not the giveaway of the difference in ages, their demeanor is! Charlie is 2 and 1/2 mos., Stella is 6 and 1/2 mos., and David is 1 week! Xander, not in the picture but the fourth member of the Cousinteers, is 7 months and lively as Stella! (See the new blog, for updates on him and his ever-lovin' parents...)
