Here is Emma playing the guitar at her Christmas music class -- they did okay for a group that just started a few months back!

Anna had her eartubes put in again in December also. The first pair lasted two years and really helped eliminate most of her ear infections. (And although Mark believes all of evolution, he does think that evolution really screwed up on kids' ears, alas.) As you can see, Anna was all smiles during the initial weigh-in, mostly because they gave her a new stuffed lion to play with and those funky hospital socks to wear:

More pre-op and she's still lovin' life: phones, books, etc. to play with to her heart's content. (In the future, of course, kids will be text-messaging when they do this instead of pretending to actually talk on a phone):

Anna got a bit more serious when the stuff that looked like real medicine gradually started to come into play:

Anna after the minor surgery. She looks dazed and confused, but hey, at least she has a full head of hair, unlike that other mammal in the background:

Erin doing Emma's hair in the kitchen. (Mark was actually got pretty good at braiding her hair when he had to get her ready each morning in Ann Arbor, but that skill has faded with disuse over time.)

Sam in the exact position he maintains for a very long time each day:
