Music Together Photos

We had a very pleasant suprise this Saturnday when one of our Music Together cohort parents sent her daughter around the room passing out photos that she had taken and composited. She was also kind enough to send over printable digital files which I've included below. Thank you Bonny!

The First Movie

Sam and Henry went to see Madagascar "Number 2" at the theater yesterday. The general consensus was that it was "too loud" but Sammy liked going into the "tunnel" and everyone had a good time... especially when they saw the promotional characters walking around outside afterwards.

Henry's ER visit

Well we had our first stitches today. Henry fell on a brick stair quite hard and got a big gash in his forehead. We rushed to the ER and he needed 3 stitches on the inside and 7 on the outside. He was very brave. After waiting almost 2 hours to be stitched up, he promptly fell asleep as soon as the Dr. started stitching!! It was a good thing we had Monkey with us this morning!!
