Trip to IA

Hey! We had a wonderful time in Iowa with our friends the Robinsons! I'll post more later, but for now check out these photos and videos from the trip.

Below is a great video of Josiah and Frencesca at the table. If you would like to see the rest of the videos from IA, click here or check out my videos section.

Easter this year was great. Amie and I made the decision to make Easter more of the big holiday around our house, and this was our first year at doing so. We really think that Easter is the more important holiday in light of the weight it carries in Christendom. Christmas will always be a special time of the year, but the death and resurrection of Christ is something that we think should be celebrated more than his birthday. We haven't really nailed down completely how Easter will work around the Giove house, but we have a good idea. Church, presents, painting eggs, easter egg hunt, communion (for the adults), big meal, and lots and lots of candy. Noah probably had more candy than he has ever had, all in one day.

Here are some photos from the day. (More after the jump.)

After they unwrapped all of the presents, I pulled out a very large package and told Noah, "We have another one to open." I was expecting Amie to say something like, "What is that?" But she didn't. I was talking to her later about it, and it turns out she was thinking something along the lines of, "Oh my gosh, where are we going to put that toy." Then she realized that it was a present for her. :) Check out the video below to see her expression!

And now the video...

Conversations with Noah

We had a full day of errands yesterday, and after lunch I put Noah in a tree. He loved it up there, and he probably would have sat there and talked for a lot longer as well. Here is some of our conversation. He talks so well! I can't believe the things he says sometimes. Hope you enjoy!

Oh, and his hair dried like that after his shower today, and we think it looks great! He's such an '80s boy today!
