Georgie turns TWO!

We got to spend Georgie's 2nd birthday in New York City!  We took Georgie and Stephen to the Central Park Zoo and explored the city.  The boys loved the animals and we luckily got to check it out before the rain started.

Waiting to see the Dora 4D show.  Both boys were absolutely terrified of the movie.  Luckily for us there were no other kids in the show and it was very short! (not fun)

Happy Birthday Boy!

Our friend, Colleen, made Georgie this special shirt for his birthday.  Thank you so much!

Feeding the animals was a big hit for both the boys.

Happy Stephen!

Daddy and the birthday boy!

After the zoo we spent some time at Grandma and Grandpa's for a special birthday dinner and cake!

We had a blast spending the day in NYC and taking the boys to the zoo.  They loved Central Park and spending time with their grandparents, aunts, and uncles.  Thanks to all who helped make Georgie feel so special.  It's hard to believe that it has been two years since you entered our lives, little man.  Thank you for all the special memories and all your energy.  We love you!!!

Harry gets baptised!

We headed up to New York City to spend the weekend and joined the Schatz family to celebrate Harry's baptism.  In July, we became an aunt and uncle again with the birth of Harry Hellmann.  Harry is a special little man and the first of Steve's sisters to have a baby.  His name is also special because he was named after his great grandfathers and a paternal uncle.  This trip was even more special because just three weeks after Harry joined the family another nephew, Kellen, was born.  This was the first time all the Schatz grandchildren were together--five boys, three and a half and under!  Something tells me that family functions moving forward will be very BUSY!

All the Schatz/Hellmann boys!

Georgie and Aunt Kristina playing ball.

The boys had a blast running around with all the kids at the party.  Unfortunately for us, Stephen and Georgie and several of the other children at the party came down with a terrible case of Hand, Foot, and Mouth, later that week.  Here's to lots more family functions...minus the germs!

The Taste of Falls Church

We love fall festivals.  It is such a great time to be out enjoying the cooler weather.  We were especially lucky this weekend because Steve got to take a break from his campaign responsibilities to join us!  

G and me in front of the fire truck!

Stephen loved riding the horse.  G got scared and refused to ride.  He has asked to ride a horse several times since then.

Stephen and McKenna in the moon bounce.

Georgie and Stella share a ride.

Stephen loved the slide!

He went down a ton of times.

Mr. G checking out the fair!

Stephen starts school!

Today, Stephen started school.  He was so excited that he woke up very early and came and got into bed with us.  When we were talking about school he said that he was a "big boy now."  On the car ride over he was adamant that he was not going to miss us during the day because he was going to be having so much fun.  We were lucky that Steve arrived home from his trip just in time to join us for Stephen's first day!!!

Happy Little Guy!


Our boys!


All ready to go!

Finally there!

Checking the toys out in his classroom.

The only one who cried that day was Georgie because he wanted to stay and play in Stephen's classroom!

Georgie's First Day of School!

Yesterday was Georgie's first day of school.  I do not think he totally understood what was going on and Stephen was very confused as to where George was most of the morning.  The teacher reported George had a good first day and did not cry when we left!  Georgie seemed alright about the whole experience but did not like that they changed his diaper.  While Georgie spent the day with his new friends, we got to meet Stephen's teacher and some of the kids in the class.  I am so thrilled for both the boys and loved seeing how excited Stephen is about his teacher, classroom, and new friends!

Too tired too blog!

Its been about three months since my last blog post where I swore I would be a better blogger.  I, and we, are thrilled to share that we are expecting another Baby Schatz!  Our third little person is expected to make his or her debut around March 2nd.  Shortly after my last blog post I found out I was pregnant and have spent most of the summer trying my best to stay on top of things.  The truth is, our summer flew by and stood still at the same time.  Having two little guys and a husband, who is super busy at work, makes life a challenge while feeling pretty ichy.  I am sad to see summer go, but happy to finally feel a little bit more like myself, and to prepare for this next adventure for our family.  The boys seem to understand about the baby.  Stephen says it is a baby boy while Georgie swears it is a little sister.  I wonder who will be right!?  Pictures of Baby Three to follow!!!!
