Matthew

Here is Matthew, smiling and giggling to Tyler's Russian Alphabet song.

Twin Giraffes



Here we are at the Natural Bridge Wildlife Reserve, where on over 400 acres, animals roam "free", including gazelles, deer, bison, zebra, oryx, ostrich, emu and here you can see the only living twin giraffes in the US (only 9 in the world).

Tyler's Graduation

video

Here is another song about apples and blueberries.  Again, if you listen closely, Tyler is just about screaming above the other voices.

Tyler's Graduation

Here is Tyler leading his class in song.

Tyler's PreSchool Graduation















Here are some pictures of Tyler's preschool graduation.  This graduation was very creative.  Not only was there singing and dancing, but there was also an art show.  You can view Tyler's artwork on his wall in the last picture.  Tyler did a great job singing in this graduation, he was a real leader, videos to follow...

Halloween Early?









Here are some pictures of the boys, first the big boys going to their first swim meet, then a one month old picture and Halloween did come early!!  Can't get enough of costumes around here.

Gengham Style

video

Sam and Tyler's rendition of "Gengham Style".  Go Piesman boys!

Enjoying Matthew!














Here are some random pictures highlighting our utter delight at Matthew.  Whether it is going for a hike, resting, or just hanging out, we have all enjoyed our first few weeks!

Twinkle Twinkle


video

Here is Tyler's rendition of "Twinkle, Twinkle".  For such an amazing singer and performer, it is a wonder that he forgot the words!  He does an excellent rendition of "You are My Sunshine" and "A Spoonful of Sugar", please ask him to sing it for you when you see him again!

Jon's Visit



Shouts out to Jon Glazier who planned a trip to Texas for my delivery!  Not only did he get to meet Matthew, but he also got to have a sleepover party with early-risers, Sam and Tyler, at mom and dad's house.  Jon entertained them like a champ and they had an absolute blast with him.  I could not have been happier that they got to spend quality time with Uncle J.

Happy Birthday Matthew

video
Here is a video of the boys meeting Matthew in the hospital for the first time.  They spontaneously sang "Happy Birthday" to him.  What special guys.

Brit Milah








Here are some pictures from Matthew's bris.  He did great, what a champ!  Me, on the other hand, I was overwhelmed and very emotional.  No matter how many times you go through it (and for us this would make three), it never gets any easier.  It was a lovely ceremony, however, performed by an Orthodox Rabbi from Dallas.  We were surrounded by family and friends and overall the day was good.
