The Marching Band Uniform Has 2 (thousand) Faces

Published by under Daneman Boys,Samuel Lewis

As you may remember, Sam’s third birthday party was a Mickey Mouse marching band theme party, and Aunt Lynne Cookie sent an awesomely appropriate present – a marching band uniform. It has been a HUGE hit. I never knew that a marching band costume was so versatile. It’s been: 1. A baseball uniform (of course) […]

PLANE Man

I think it’s universally acknowledged that having children teaches you volumes more than you expect – about yourself, the world, perspective. I’m also learning that it teaches you about your own parents. Take, for example, this morning’s conversation with Sam: Sam (gesturing to Daniel): Danny says, “When I’m 4 can I have a World War […]

Jungle Friends

We’ve been very lucky to have several friends offer us gently used baby gear for Daniel – the kinds of things that babies outgrow long before they wear it out. It’s been fantastic. I’ve been taking things out little by little to keep things interesting, and, in some cases, as he’s grown into their use. […]

Home, Sweet Home

With another kiddo joining the family and both Bryan and I working primarily from home, we needed a little more space. We found a perfect […]

Icepocalypse 2013!

In case you haven’t heard, the DFW metroplex (and other areas of North Texas) have been pretty much encased in ice since Thursday night. School was cancelled Friday, and for the first time in probably a decade, our office actually closed. We couldn’t even work remotely, because power to the building downtown was inconsistent at […]

Summer Fun – Other Beach House Fun

Boy, do I know how to drag out Summer Fun posts or what? But, since it still sorta feels like summer around here (yes, in October), it’s not so bad to still be posting about summer fun, right? Right? Also, for all my friends who got their first dusting of snow last night, maybe this […]

Summer Fun – Beach Time

A summer trip to Grandma and Grandpa’s is not complete without some time in the surf. The big boys wasted no time getting out as far as they could into the waves. Sam was initially content to play – and direct the play – in the sand. Eventually the whole family got in on the […]

Summer Fun – Fishing with Grandpa and Aunt Ruth

Part of the summer fun at the beach house this year was Jacob getting to go deep sea fishing with Grandpa, Daddy, and Aunt Ruth. (Caleb was supposed to go, too, but he woke up with an earache, so he opted to stay on dry land.) The anglers had a great day and came home […]

Summer Fun – Kayaking

For Christmas this year, Santa brought the Brandt family a 2-person kayak. They were nice enough to let us test it out on our trip to the beach house this summer. In related news, we’re now in the market for a kayak ourselves.
