Not much to say this time around.  Jacky is starting to be a little more vocal, and she is not as crazy cranky as she was a few weeks ago.  Must have been the teething and vaccinations she got.  I splurged on an xbox 360, and actually had to some drilling around the house to get it hooked up to the network.  Janet actually plays it the most.  Xander has decided that he wants to compete in the next karate competition, despite our reservations.  We'll have to toughen him up. 

Only 1 video to share today: Jacky eating, and then showing off her new vocabulary (its about 31 megs- so right click-save as might work better)

I just found out that I'm going to be an uncle again!  Congratulations to Dave and Nancy on their bun in the oven. 

Jacky is turning into a real terror.  I no longer feel comfortable bringing her out in public anymore due to her unpredictable tantrums.  We had it easy with Xander.  Maybe its teething, but she has been crazy these last two weeks (on the other hand, when she is happy it is pretty funny to see).  Basically she needs to get what she wants... or else.

Here are a few new pics.

Boy, the kids are really getting big.  We just attended Megan's 16th birthday party, which was a nice affair.  I remember when we used to line up Megan, Linda, Nick and Tim and ask them questions (if they gave a good answer, they got to take one step forward).  I don't really remember how old they were when we did this, but I'm thinking maybe Xander's age.  Anyway, the question that stand out in my mind was "what would you do with a hundred dollars?"  One of the twin's answers was "buy a banana?" Really, with a hundred dollars?  "buy a hundred bananas?".  Megan answered with "give it to Linda".  That is some strong family bond right there.  Anyway, I posed Xander that question today.  He said" I'd spend half on games, video games and and toys.  No wait.  40$ on games and I would save the rest."  Definintely gets it from his dad and not his mom ;).

I wonder if we'll be torturing the younger girls in the same way...

Another big announcement in the last 2 weeks- Connie and Victor are engaged.  Congratulations to the both of them.  Its going to be a Halo Kitty wedding!

Here are a few pics and one video from the last two weeks

Looks like this is turning into a monthly thing.  Janet's Karate classes are progressing and expanding.  Things are starting to get busy for me as well.  We are all anxiously awaiting the end of winter.  All of Xander's clothes are getting to short for him, as I think he has grown 1 inch in the last 3 months.  Jacky's belly is still big.  On the whole, a fairly mellow month.

Several pics and one video on the family page
