Crystal's brother Billy donned The Santa Suit on Christmas Eve. Here's Michael, Jr. taking his picture with Santa. Raymond was a little too skittish of Santa.

Labor Day in Bakersfield

We went to visit the family in Bakersfield for Labor Day. Here are some pictures from the trip.

Here's Michael and Raymond with their great-grandmother. She lives in Oregon, so we were lucky that she was in Bakersfield when we were there.

Here's the whole family with Crystal's grandmother.

Here's Raymond with a lovely flower on his head. This is probably the closest we will come to ever having a daughter...

Here's our niece Torrie, looking crazy.

Our niece Lynsie, pursuing her favorite pastime -- talking on the phone.

Michael hanging out with his cousins (from left to right): Devin, Tyler, Brandon, and Zach.

Florida Trip

In August, I went to Florida to visit my family. It was a great trip, even though I was still recovering from surgery. Here are some pictures.

Here I am at my niece Elizabeth's apartment, with West and Elizabeth.

This is my old house in Florida.

Me and my Aunt Ann. She lives in Lakeland, but luckily for me, she happened to be visiting Panama City at the same time I was.

Here's West and Johnny stuffing their faces at Marisa's house.

Speaking of Marisa, here's the chef du jour herself.

My niece Sarah.

I'm not really sure what to say about this picture.

A cute picture of West and Elizabeth.

And finally, a crazy picture of my sister Jeana.

Catching Up On Summer Pictures

I'm so behind on summer pictures, that my wife has decided to create a blog of her own! So I better get to work. Here's some cute ones of my boys.

Raymond enjoying some baby food.

Raymond playing in the living room.

This was a cake Crystal made for Michael to celebrate his potty-training progress. Unfortunately that progress was only temporary :-)

Here's Michael enjoying above cake.

Here's Michael and I on cake night.

One of Michael's favorite tricks is to put on his mom's shoes and stomp around the house!

Here's Michael feeding Raymond.

Pictures of The New House

We moved in to a new place at the beginning of the month. Now we've finally taken a few pictures!

This is the dining room, next to the kitchen.

This is the kitchen.

Another view of the kitchen/dining room with Michael's table.

This is Raymond's room.

Another picture of Michael's room, with his Blues Clues curtains.

This is the hall bathroom.

And this is the master bathroom.

You can see the living room ... behind Michael

Another picture of the boys in the living room.

Well that's all for now. We still need to take pictures of the master bedroom, the guest room, and the outside of the house.

Galpin Boys Playing Together

Now that Raymond is very mobile and can even stand up (with something to hold on to,) he and Michael play together a lot.

Sometimes Michael will even go through the house saying "Ray Ray! Ray Ray!' looking for his little brother.

Of course Michael is still the king of block stacking:

And of funny faces...

Raymond sticks to making cute faces!
