Photos of the kids...

So, we went out on Monday and got the kids' pictures taken. Overall, we were pleased with what we got. Daxton is at that lovely stage where when you tell him to, "smile," he thinks about it too hard and it comes out looking very strange and forced.

Merry Christmas and Happy it's a New Year!

My apologies for the premature Valentine motif. The truth is, when I'm pregnant, I like to pretend that time is moving faster than it really is, cause it keeps me sane, so right now I'm pretending like it's practically February already, and that April is right around the corner!

Well, we're back. We spent three weeks away from home enjoying time with family over the holidays. Ben and I were able to leave the kids with Nana while we flew with my family to Hawaii for a week, and I'd tell you all about it, but then I'd start to cry because it would remind me that it's below zero outside, and I still have a few months of freezing ahead. Sooo, I'll tell you all about how wonderful Hawaii was when it's warm, say in June, and then it won't be so hard to think about. After we returned from Hawaii, we spent a fun-filled week with Ben's family at the cabin in Midway. Fortunately, Santa found us there, and the kids came away with quite a spread, definitely more so than if we would have stayed in Michigan for Christmas! Our heartfelt thanks to both families for a wonderful Christmas this year!

Now that we're home, we're all too happy to see 2009 leave and 2010 begin. We are hoping for a better year this year with the promise of more stability on the horizon. So, here's to 2010!!!
