We have consolidated all the old picture pages that didn't get lost in The Great Server Crash of 2005. The chronology works like this:
Lila doesn't have her own picture page because our host's server crashed badly in late 2005, and the site backup we had on our own PCs was from late 2004. We switched hosts, and we still have all the photos stored on the PC (and backup DVDs), but we're not rebuilding the lost web pages, sorry.
Akiva doesn't have his own picture page because he's a fourth child. Let's face it: any pictures of him are liable to have two or three of his siblings in the shot, too.
Try to get all four of them in one picture without goofy expressions on one of them (eg., Lila):
Lila is a little girl. She loves pink clothing, princesses, and monsters. This photo just covers the first two (and popsicles):
Four approaches to eating a popsicle:
Akiva got a hold of my BlackBerry Curve. I took a picture of him with the Nokia N95. Then he grabbed that, so I pulled out a Sony Ericsson W890i. I love how intently he checks his email:
The whole crew:
Channukah 2007. The boys got Crazy Bones; Avi was in Europe that night so the photo was taken/sent to document the joy that $4 of plastic can bring (Tani took the picture of Leah and Lila):
And finally, a short video that's pretty funny (.MP4, taken in October '07 with a prototype of Nokia's N82): Hopscotch in a JC Penney store
Update 6/5/07: His name is Akiva Kalev
May 29, 2007 - It's a boy!
The traditional Star Wars toy shot:
New babies give presents!

For the first time in several years, we went on vacation at the end of June (in Groton/Mystic, CT during the week, with the Sabbath at family in MA). To prove this actually happened, we stopped off at a mall and had a casual family portrait taken:
When you have a girl, you try out different hairstyles:
Shimmy doesn't accessorize his hair, but does try to match his popsicle to his outfit:
Lila and cousin Devorah: Stylin'!
Tani's 6th Birthday party (note the Lego theme Lego cake):
The boys usually just share a room:
