My, how you have grown!

Short video of Jillian stuck under the bed sheet.

Hi all,

Sorry for the delay in between postings, but, as you can imagine, there’s not much time at the end of the day after chasing two little girls around the house. We know, it’s not much of an excuse, but it’s the best we can do for now.

Anyway, here are some pictures of Jillian acting grown-up (on the potty). Some shots of the girls from Henry’s 3rd Birthday Party last weekend and a short clip of the ‘Bouncing Van Ryn’s’ training for their next show under the big top. *note: no noses were injured while performing these stunts. The bandage was worn as a ‘cosmetic’ accessory by Jillian.





 Wishing you and yours

the best of the season!

Our first snow of the season
