First of many…

Today I washed the first ever “skid marked” underwear in this household. Not mine of course but Constantine’s. I am proud to announce that he is nearly 90% potty trained! And it was a piece of cake which means that I should have done it a lot sooner than I did. So, only three in diapers now, yay!


#3 is 1!

Our Jolly Joseph turned 1 on February 11th!


Itty Bitty Iggy

… was baptized on February 8th.

Godparents are Jackie Knoell and Tim Klocek.

Ignatius also had the privilege to be baptized with his cousin, Aubrey Knoell.


(I can’t believe this was the best we could do…)
