Caroline celebrated her eight-and-a-half birthday with a sparkler in her pancakes. The other two kids were huddled in the corner, terrified. Caroline looks just a little worried, herself. For Christmas, the girls got a DVD player (the old one that used to be in our car) for their room. This is how we spotted them watching a show one night--both girls in the bed and Charlie snuggled up in the toy box. Happy six-and-a-half, Anna! The only candle I could find was a "5" candle. So I figured she's 6.5 years old...right...? Charlie asked me to do his hair "spiky". And then he posed with the smile from a happy meal.
