Now, for some reminiscing - I went through old pictures and found some great ones. I love this next picture - it has got to be one of my favorite alltime. This was taken at Miles 3rd birthday party - the theme was Nemo and he loved puzzles so he was so excited about this present. He was helping me go through these pictures earlier and said - "Oh - she gave me that puzzle - I still have it" (in fact, he just helped Abby put it together). So anyway - here are Miles and Hallie, almost 6 years ago.
Here they are today - yeah, I am not sure who is more happy to have their picture taken - Hallie, Ethan or Miles. We didn't have enough time for them to warm up to one another, so Rebecca and Jeff, if you read this - we will have to get together again sometime. What would be really great would be to have a LDS Oregon Law School Reunion:)
Here are more "before pictures". This is our first Halloween in Eugene - the kids are 2 (might I add that I spent days making this costume)
Another Halloween picture - the next year when the kids are 3 (this is the last year of the homemade costumes).
Miles, Trinity, Jocelyn and Hallie - I think this was the start of Frank's 2nd year of law school - Fall 2004?
Here are Abby and Nicolas (he is more interested in the rocks than playing with Abby) - Nicolas was born a couple months before they moved and Abby was born after we left Oregon - but they actually ended up playing more together than the big kids did.
Hallie with Piper and Abby- she is a beautiful girl (and was more willing to smile when we weren't forcing her to pose with the boys)
I really tried to get a good shot of Miles and Hallie - I thought that maybe they would be more comfortable with a baby in their arms - still didn't work quite like I had envisioned in my mind.
