Dear loved ones, we welcomed our newest little Harrington on this past Saturday Morning. Ephraim Matthew Harrington was born on 5/9/09 @ 8:19 am. He weighed 7lbs and 1 oz and was 20 1/4inches long. He looks a lot like Kyra with all of his dark hair but there are facial expressions that remind me so much of Arsenios when he was first born. We're thrilled to have him finally here. Arseny and Kyra both think he's something wonderful as do we....we're feeling so blessed to have such a full and happy household!

This year was Arseny's 3rd birthday! He calls it his "Happy Day" We had a party planned and as can be expected with toddlers we were all suffering from various illnesses on that day. So party was postponed for a week later but all in all we had a great time. Arseny got his beloved starwars Light Saber. It's all he wanted and all he talked about for weeks and weeks. At his party we had Arseny's best buds...Asher, Aidan and Sava come over for some cake and celebration. He got some great gifts that he absolutely loves and had a fun time with the kids! Here are a few pictures and maybe even a little "Happy Day" Song!
Since Arseny's first birthday I have taken his picture in our back yard every year amongst the multitude of grape hyacinth that grows wildly back there at this time of year. Here is one from last year and then one from this year. Amazing how fast they have grown.
Spring took a long time to get here but once Lent was over and Pascha was on it's way we started to see the green of Springtime break through! Here are a couple from Pascha Day, second two are from Palm Sunday (hence the waving of the palm in the picture from Arseny) The last is the kids on Grandpa's tractor out at Grandma and Grandpa's. Grandpa pulled the tractor up into the back yard so Big boy and sister sue could climb up on it!
My kiddos love papa time, here are a recent few. The first is a funny one...Arseny and Kyra think its really funny to get Daddy's glasses and book and pretend to read like he does, I just happened to snap this one recently as Arseny was laying in bed "busy reading" Dad's do fun things like shoot bow and arrows, build forts, wash cars and of course watch you tube clips of the "Wiggles"
For all of you faithful followers of my picture blog...I have sadly let you down by my lack of posts. However, I am trying to get back to it because i do realize how much fun it is just to have the blog and keep it up even if I have fallen in love with facebook a little the Blog is much better just to see what's going on at the Harrington's! Ok so here we are and it's May! So time for a little catch up. Getting through winter was really hard this year. We had one heck of a winter with all the snow and cold weather and it seemed like it lasted forever...maybe that's just because I had two toddlers to entertain or it could have jsut been because it was well... long. Ok so here are some pics from that season We've got lots of bundled up kids, a picture from Christmas and one of Arseny making star shaped cookies for St Nicholas Day.
