3…is a magic number

Wednesday, January 4th, 2012

Just when the whirlwind that was Christmas is a distant memory along comes Jonah’s birthday #3.

 To start the day off the monkeys were loaded up and off for a visit to their primate pals…at the zoo.

Jonah’s entourage was larger than normal as the M family joined our celebration.  It was a beautiful day to be out and about.

He pretty much smiled like this all day – not just when riding a large bison.

After a good snooze on the ride home it was time for the only thing Jonah wanted for his birthday (when asked)…cake with Mickey Mouse candles!

Of course other gifts were also popular…

His vocabulary increase every day – he’s explaining to Harry Mickey’s choice of occular fashion coordinating with his sweet mode of transportation.

Opening presents is serious buisness

He got a “ticket”… to college

Still loves to pose for pictures

Jonah would like to remind everyone that two is so last year, now he’s:

New Country for New Friends

Sunday, July 18th, 2010

Friendship is a very important thing to the Grilliot family new and old.  Amazing that we had to move to a new country to meet this awesome faimly that lived just minutes from us in Texas.  Thankfully a common friend of ours let us know about each others move.  Two girls just about the twins age, just minutes after they met they started running around playing tag, they all got along great!

Last week we got to hang out with the girls for an evening playdate, a little white chocolate fondu for dessert kicked off their giggling, crazy night

After dinner we headed to the show…that the kids made themselves.  It started out as a puppet show but quickly turned into a crazy dancing party right away

Jonah was the videographer

I overhead the girls telling the boys they were going to play house at one point and that Logan would be the dad and Jonah would be the baby of course.  To which Logan replied, “Oh I think I rather be a Jedi Knight”…I think it rubbed off on the girls.  Jedi Knight –  Dad…all the same in my book.

After filming they still felt creative so we headed to the art table for some quick masterpieces while the movie was being uploaded

We cracked open a tube of glow sticks for a bit of lightpainting too.  FYI you can keep kids occupied with lightsticks for hours! 

Then after painting it was show time..

Welcome to our new home…
