Going green!

Happy St. Patrick's Day! Mother Nature must know that today is an Irish celebration -- we woke up to a thick blanket of fog outside. Hopefully the sun will appear in time for the annual St. Patty's Parade downtown. Julian made a shamrock wand with Miss Mary at the library yesterday; he's looking forward to waving it among the crowd.
So, here's Julian helping Mom cut up a big head of cabbage for a yummy salad. Of course he was the official taste tester; at one point he lifted up the entire head of cabbage and took a big bite out of it!
In other news, Julian likes to tell you his name -- "Ju, Ju" he says. Ahhhh!

Julian's hot-stuff picture!!Rockin' out!

Playing in Peoria

Guess Mr. Monkey had a little accident with Thomas the Engine on the train track! "Doctor" Julian soon had everyone up and playing again in no time.

The weather has been very Spring-like lately, so you can imagine where Julian would spend every waking moment if he could. He's been raking up old leaves, digging in the dirt (mud really!), exploring behind the garage, testing out all his riding toys, and even rolling down the hill in front of the house. Mom and Dad got in on the act and had a great time too!

Dress-Up

Julian loves to dress-up like his hero, Dad!!! What do you think of his white A-frame shirt and black rimmed glasses? Isn't he just the budding engineer??!!

Happy birthday, Dr. Seuss......"left foot, left foot, left foot, right; play, play, play all day and night"!!

Last night we worked on a family project - fixing a slightly used wooden train table. Julian was totally focused on repairing the broken draw. He really kept his mommy and daddy going despite the distraction of Monday night TV shows like "How I Met Your Mother" and "Two and a Half Men". After the table was mended, Julian tested out how the trains rolled around on it. He kept pulling Daddy by the hand over to the train table to play "Toot, Toot"!
