Schragerpalooza 2011 – Part IV

Before the Virginia Schragers loaded up the minivan for their long trek back home, they were kind enough to agree to a sitting in an effort to capture a family photo.  After several minutes of what it must be like to herd cats, we all drank heavily.



Schragerpalooza 2011 – Part III

Enjoy some more photos of the Schrager girls from their epic weekend together.

Becca Visits Her New Cousin

Not the best composed photo, but I love Becca’s reaction to Bailey’s kisses and the girls piling onto Aunt Laurie’s lap…

Camryn’s Anticlimactic First Bath

We’re still a tad traumatized from Delaney’s first bath 3 years after the fact, but it had to be done. Things had started sticking to Camryn, like papers, socks and lots of Bailey fluff.  According to most parenting books and a few blogs, that was completely unacceptable.  She needed to be bathed.

To our complete and utter amazement Camryn loved it.  She just leaned back and enjoyed the experience. We’re not convinced that she’s not setting us up for something terrible down the road though, so we’re not letting our guard down.


For more screaming and crying, be sure to check out this classic video of Delaney’s first bath:


Schragerpalooza 2011 and Karrs Too – Part II

With so many Schragers in Charlotte, the city was on high alert.  It was such a rare occurrence that Aunt Laurie emerged from the mountains after hearing of the news via carrier pigeon.

Charlotte will not see such an important gathering until the Democratic National Convention rolls into town later this year.  (Although I tend to believe that the DNC will produce a lot less in the way of solid waste I would gather.)

Schragerpalooza 2011 – Part I

Just as the dust was settling from “Smith-O-Rama” along comes Schragerpalooza.

Papa flew up from Florida and the Virginia-based Schragers, Adam, Carly Diana and Becca, made the long drive down to meet the latest edition to the family and enjoy some free Cherry Coke Zero.

Some might say that having that many Schrager under one roof is a sign of the Apocalypse, but others would say it was a recipe for a very busy and entertaining weekend.

No.  This picture is not blurry.  It must be your eyes.  Go get them checked.

Watch Out… It’s the Schrager Sisters

Laney’s been taking her new role as Big Sister seriously.  She’s very good at letting us know when Camryn is crying, which is very helpful because it’s so difficult to hear her in a house full of hardwood. She loves to watch Camryn have her diaper changed, which I have to admit, is a little odd.

Bottom line.  There’s two of them now and there’s nothing I can do about it.  So hang on!  It’s going to be a hell of a ride.

Camryn Meets The Smiths

The Smiths had a lot to be thankful for the when Camryn was born.  Not only was she a beautiful new edition to the family, it’s because of her that they missed the devastating tornadoes in Springfield, MA which is only a few miles from where they live.

Nana, Bumpa and Uncle Jason were kind enough to watch Laney and Bailey while we were at the hospital and couldn’t wait to get their hands on Camryn and my Diet Cherry Coke.
