With Harry, I would have stressed and fussed and tried for the "perfect picture." With John, I'm much more happy to remember him the way he really is at 5 months. A goofy little monkey who constantly has his socks off and his tongue out. :) Because all too soon, that little tongue will go back in and he'll be wearing shoes and starting kindergarten next year. Did I mention how much I'm FREAKING out that Harry will be at kindergarten next year 5 full days a week??!!!

John had peas for the first time on Saturday. He was NOT a fan. LOL, his little expressions were sooo sad and pitiful (and hysterical!). I finally took pity on him and gave him apples instead, they were a much bigger hit!

|My Tubba Babies|
|Someone is VERY excited that he has feet. :)|
|Harry asked me to come and take pictures of his "moves."|
|Moon flare, baby!|
|Emmila brought Big Poley Bear to school and wore her jammies for Teddy Bear Picnic Day. She was thrilled and hasn't stopped talking about it!|

I recently started a Project Life book. I figure with living over here in Europe, how cool to be able to document every day with my family? On our PL message board, someone posted the thread to start us off on our journaling this week, and I thought I'd share. I really loved this concept.

Yesterday was Dad's last day in Europe and the weather was absolutely gorgeous, so we headed out sightseeing!
First, we headed to Bitche, France to see the Citadelle. It was much bigger than expected and very intimidating.
|View of Bitche from the hill|
|Even had a chapel inside!|
|Jay and Harry talking about "conquering the fortress!"|
|French pastries- eclairs and pommetartin! YUMMY!!!|
The kids demanded to play outside the other day in the rain. Since it was reasonably warm out (about 45 degrees), I figured, "why not?!" So, they headed out in rain coats and boots and had a blast. Of course, Emmila needed hot cider when she came inside, but I think that's going to continue until June at least... :)
Dad and I took the kids on a "nature walk" around the village the other day. As you can see, ALL of our snow is completely GONE! How crazy is the weather here??
And guess who we got to have dinner with??!! The passengers on the plane were from an Armed Forces Entertainment trip headed to the middle east, starring Mario Andretti and Al Unser Jr! Of course, we got our pictures taken with them. As you can see, John was thrilled. :) LOL, Harry was quite jealous, especially after we showed him some youtube videos of the two drivers.
