Duncan turned 5 today. Can you believe it? He's 40.5 inches tall now (as shown on this handy growth chart). He's really excited about his new sheets and the new quilt that his Grandma made for him.

Christmas was good to the boys. Santa brought them new bikes and new helmets. Xander's bike had some quality issues, so we took advantage of Santa's generous return policy and got him a different one that didn't sound like it was going to fall apart when he pedaled it.

We've spent the last few days playing Mario Kart, Guitar Hero World Tour, and riding around.

This is how the boys play with the shields Bheesh bought for them at the Ren Faire. They are using big plastic baseball bats because we decided it would be safer than swords.
