March catchup

What's new over here? A few things...


The family discovered the Wombo app which turns any picture into a lip-syncing video:


Asa had photo day at daycare...but he was feeling a bit shy that day and wouldn't look at the camera. Oh well...better luck next year!! 


We had lots of ski days and early spring outdoors time. Asa did his first chairlift, and the boys all did ski lessons. That is actually Emmet and Obie under all those layers!


And Howard and Linda finally made it through their vaccinations and quarantines just in time for us to have Passover together: 


Everyone is looking forward to better weather, Covid numbers going down, vaccinations going up, and border restrictions going away. Here's hoping sometime soon!



Emmet is Seven

Well, having your birthday during a pandemic is not the greatest. But I think we made the best of it – Emmet had a pretty terrific 7th birthday. 

Skiing, presents, a dancing hamster birthday card, a piano lesson, more presents, cake, a movie with his brothers (Alvin and The Chipmunks 3: Chipwrecked!), a visit from a friend, and even a toy store shopping spree!

Happy birthday to our own sweet, creative, independent, growing Alvin Emmet!


Asa the chef

We haven’t posted anything for a while, but here’s a quick pic from today. Asa helped me make green beans and cauliflower, cook salmon, and make oatmeal cookies!

That’s really some rock!

Emmet has been reading about musical instruments and is way into electric guitars. He even got to play Yoni’s electric guitar recently. 

Here are two guitars he drew: on the bottom is an electric guitar that can switch between rock and pop music. On the top is the loudest instrument in the world. The very large number indicates how many loudnesses it goes. As the caption says, “that’s really some rock!”
