Happy Anniversary

We're celebrating six delightful years together today.



I love us. We have had wonderful years together so far, full of the good, the bad, and the ugly, and I have loved it all. (Maybe not the ugly.)
And I love the best two things the last six years has given us.



Happy anniversary to my favorite boy.


(PS, if you are thinking I look ridiculous in some of those pictures, I am pregnant in a couple of them, and don't look too hot. But, whatever. All in the interest of documentation.)

Happy Christmas Eve!



We have been talking about the "why" of Christmas all month, and I have been reminding Charlie that some of the presents we can give Jesus include being nice to our sister, obeying our mommy and daddy, and saying our prayers. I quiz him when we are in the car driving around doing errands, so that he will remember.

Today, we were driving and I had given the spiel about Christmas, and asked him what we were going to give Jesus. He said "I want to give him a baby toy and a wheelchair."

?? It's the thought that counts?

Felicity was being a ham while we waited to see Santa (Charlie wouldn't let me take any pictures of him).

Once someone told me that if there was one photo trick you need to know, it is to get on the same level as your child when you take the picture.
Sometimes that makes them do weird things.

After Santa, I tried to get some things done in my office, but my assistants were hard at work instead.

SANTA! (I KNOW him!)

One of the lovely things my company does each year is inviting all the employee's kids to visit Santa. Charlie loved him, Felicity, not so much. She liked waving, but she held on for dear life when I tried to have her sit on his lap.

For good measure

Proof that I have TRIED to take pictures of our happy family when we were without Greg:There just wasn't really anything blog-able until he came back to us. =)

Welcome back to me!

I'm back! Finals are over! My six week panic attack is over! I know, totally unreasonable for the spouse of the person in finals to be panicking. But, hey, it's just how I roll.

So, to my lovely blog readers, I give you cookie baking, or, what a person can do when she is not completely overtaken by (ridiculous and probably undeserved) stress.This girl digs cookies.And, of course, eating.Charlie seems physically incapable of having his clothes on for any length of time. I fight it when I need to, and ignore it when I don't.I was moderately proud of some of them. I mean, this one is cute enough to eat, right?Note: Greg is now officially halfway done with law school! We are proud of him, and of how hard he works, even though it is also hard on us sometimes. Way to be!!
