Thanksgiving at Lisa's


We finally did it - we got all the kids together on the couch and snapped a few shots. It was nearly impossible to get them all to look at the camera AND banish red eye AND keep them smiling, but what the heck? Who needs perfection when you have sucha cute bunch of kids?

Nicole (looking so grown up) and Emily smile at me.


Ana loves to play with Joseph's train table.

It's all about Ana this time


Here she is - the source of my guilt over not giving her her own blog. Sure she's too young to be jealous, but Emily already has about 60 posts dedicated to her. Ana is kooky enough to inspire anyone to write a blog about her (okay, maybe I'm biased) but this picture captures the kooky very well, I think. So even though I'm dedicating this blog to BOTH girls, Ana gets a spotlight in this first post. She's three, it's mid-October 2004 and she's doing a pumpkin dance (don't ask).

Dooley Family Blog

I've been wanting to create a blog to keep friends and family updated on the trials and tribulations of both Ana and Emily. Since I have already created a blog that talks extensively about the the care and treatment of Emily's cleft lip and palate, I thought it was time to include Ana in on the fun. So mostly this blog will contain pictures and anecdotes of both the girls, and will not focus on Emily's issue with the cleft. If you want more information about Emily's progress related to her cleft lip and palate, just visit Emily's Story, the blog I created for that purpose.
