Bite the thumb 
What is going on???  Where have we been???  It has been WAY too long since I updated the page, but a lot has gone on in the last two months.  So quit biting your thumbs in anticipation, here is Part 1 of our last couple months.  To get you up to date quickly, I will keep it pretty brief, here are the last two months in pics:

Following the huge snow storm, Liliana had tons of fun in the snow! Happy girl in the snow Laughing in the snow Serious snow look


Mother’s Day 2008.  Celebrated a fun day with Liliana and finally planted this really cool “mom” plant.

After two years of hard work, I graduated with my Master’s…as you can see, Liliana is totally enthused! Liliana and mommy at graduation The family at mommy's graduation


At a recent MAA meeting (Mathematics Association of America), Liliana decided to learn to play the xylophone.  Notice that our little math-nerd in the making is sporting her cool MAA t-shirt! MAA Playing the xylophone Silly smile


Our little bug has been working really hard learning how to smile for the camera.  Here are the results so far.  We swear that she is part Chinese, part Klingon.  Who knew?!?! Klingon smile!
