He's a maniac, maniac...

I just couldn't resist posting this pic! The boys have been wanting me to knit them sweatbands for a while now. So, we went to the yarn store and picked out some yarn and I finally knit them up on Saturday night.
I guess I could have knit a few more rows to make the bands wider. I'm not sure if it's the color or the narrowness of the sweatbands that make me think Flashdance! (Ronan on left and Seamus on right)

This was the overwhelming theme of this year's birthday celebrations. Ronan & Seamus turned four years old today. Can you believe it? Their birthday cakes, decorations, and toys all reiterated their current enthusiasm...Batman. There was a family birthday party on Sunday and today was the birthday party that consisted mostly of our friends and their kids at The Hop.

Their birthday is always bittersweet for me. For those of you that don't know, all three of us almost died on their birthday. So it is on their birthday that I always feel especially grateful for my family and our good health. I leave you with the last picture of them on their birthday before bed.

Struttin' his stuff

We have family in town from Minnesota. The boys have been really looking forward to this visit because their cousin Haley, whom they have not seen since July 2007, is one of the visitors. We went to the Denver Zoo today. We were treated to quite a display by the male peacocks. There were four males vying for the affection of two females. Beautiful...
