Alas and Alack

Mom and Dad Shiffler visited a lil' while back and we gave them the royal treatment. By that I mean we drove them to a remote park outside the city in single digit weather and told them to smile for pictures. Isobel is seen here yodeling in the cold.

Papa Fanucci smiles at his good fortune.

That my friends, is a marble with rings around it; not unlike a miniature version of Saturn without all the metallic hydrogen and rocky debris and dust.

Oh the shame. Christina got a speedin' ticket and had to go to court to defend her honor. It was a very Judge Judy like moment for us all. In the end though, we paid alot of money. I hate the rule of law.

Our little Martain baby sits in a forward-facing car seat now!

I don't think these next two pictures need any explanation.

Hooray for new blog postings! Okay, so I'm going to have to disagree with you and say that those last two pictures most definitely need an explanation.

Christina it was really fun seeing you again in Pa. Owen is sitting forward to now, and I love being able to look back at him while I am driving. Isobel doesn't look to happy in her new seat. I love her pig tails. So cute!

Yay, you are back! I LOVE your red shoes of awesomeness... and Brooke knows a thing or two about...err.. horse fashion, too. :)

Furrever - The last two photos are from the Ward Movie, which we were in charge of. We drew our genre from a hat: Medieval. Brooke played Rook Goodhoof, a Horse Insurance salesman. He was great for the role, naturally.

Christine - Isobel actually really likes her new seat. That photo is just an example of what happens when I don't give her her pacifier in the car. YIKES.

Isa - Hooray for $15 shoes from Target! I love red shoes.
