Meet The Nat Pack!

My photo
The Nat Pack: The super fashionable, super mod, super hip family consisting of Nat, Pete, Jakob, Brock, Troy, and Ivy. Like The Rat Pack, only younger, cuter, and not as rich or famous.

Old Man Hair:

Ivy's hair was looking like a comb-over. And she has a big old bald spot in the back. So I gave her a hair cut.

My kids' first haircuts leave much to be desired, and Ivy proved she was part of the rule, not the exception. So now it's kind of a bowl cut, but it will grow out and look a little better soon enough. I hope.


Guess we won't be getting our family pictures taken this coming Monday after all.

Troy was playing in my turtle collection, more specifically with the one on the left. It has a light underneath the shell that the boys find fascinating. Apparently Troy was playing with the light switch and pulled the turtle down on top of himself. He has a nice shell shaped bruise on his face.

Here's another look:

Olympic Bowlers We are Not

We took the kids bowling. Pete killed the rest of us with the impressive score of 97. And...we were playing with bumpers. And...I came in last, under Jakob and Brock.

Troy wanted to help me improve my form and my score, but I was past hope this time around.

I taught Jakob that you need to dance after every ball you shoot (roll?). He has some sweet moves, especially in his day-glo bowling shoes on the ultra polished floor.

Ooooh, hands!

I love it when kids discover their appendages.

Only the cutest kid ever!

Brock's going to be such a heart throb when he grows up.

Ott in the making:

Jakob could draw all day long. When I can steal the "big computer" from Pete, I'll have to scan in some of Jakob's masterpieces. (The scanner is hooked up to the new computer. I'm on the lowly old computer right now.)

Now if only we can get to Sesame Street...

So you really did cut Ivy's hair- I have to admit it does look better though. And a big OUCH! for Troy. It hurts me just to look at the picture! We always bowl with bumpers too. I think the family high score was by Ethan- a 108! Good luck with getting everyone healed for a family picture soon.

We really need to get our babies together. Mabye when Jack decides its not torture to get in the car seat. I think they are about the same size, huge! Jack went to the Dr. today for an ear infection and he is 20lbs. The hair cut is fabulous! She is absolutely adorable.

Cute post! You are sooo clever. I'm a dunce in the "clever" department. Dude, poor Troy! That looks awful! He's such a bruiser! Literally! And Ivy's hair looks nice. Okay, you have inspired me to get off my butt and go do my hair and makeup RIGHT NOW. You always look so good in pictures.
