Birthday season 2013

We're going to have how many birthdays in October? Three? Yay!

Oh man I've got nothing organized. I'd better get Leo on this pronto!

Work that cousin-calender-computer, brother! We've got to figure out those party logistics, and quick!

Leo's calling in some favors on the dolphin-phone. I think we can make this work!

Nyummy Leo-is-6 cake!

Nyummy Leo-is-6 bread! (Look at it sideways, and think Roman numerals)

Round of applause for Papi for bringing the nyums!

Good thing too, since our own attempt at baking didn't turn out so well.

Papi's bread is so good I'm going to walk around with it for days, bringing it everywhere I go.

Dad and I get a cake too.  There's a cup of tea and some shamrock on it, plus some math, "39 + 1H".  It has been quite a year for us both!

Tomatoes? For me?? How did you know that is exactly what I wanted??? Could it be because you noticed that TOMATOES ARE MY ABSOLUTE FAVORITIST THING ON EARTH except maybe my brother who is funnier if not quite as tasty?

Leo and Mum made a super Glig cake. Gligs are animals that live on Jupiter, my brother knows a lot about them because he flies to Jupiter every night and he is a Glig.

We ate the glig cake with a bunch of Leo's non-glig friends. We're still trying to get the glitter off the floor after that party.  Hooray for October!

Tata Stephanie

Steph still enjoys a cuddle with her now that she's big though!

French homework

3-day-old Helene gets a taste of life... doing homework with Leo on the couch.

A Fitzpatrick Giszpenc gathering

Ah now, has Grandad told a joke again?

Thanks for the nice message from Taneesha!

Wow, Helene used to be really little.

Pulmonary lunch

Look Dad! Lungs!


Someone driving a tractor

Or possibly, someone on a bicycle. The meaning is lost in the mists of time now, so feel free to go all post-modernist and appreciate how the signifier is more significant than the signified.

Something about horses...

We're not sure what though, sorry.

Standing is still a little new...

This was back when standing was still a little new for Helene. Now she is practically running... and jumping and climbing! Thanks to Carla for the photo...


Thanks to Kathleen for this lovely photo of Helene during the staff retreat!

birthday cakes

Well this is embarrassing. We have officially lapped ourselves. These photos are from our birthdays... last year. 

Yummy apple cake! I used to be 35!

Leo asked for a cake in the shape of a boat. He made the anchor himself!

Ooh, who can spot Helene? She's well hidden...

Miriam and Lulu help Leo blow out the candles.

That cool birthday card is from Taneesha.

Leo used to be 5!
