Holy Crap, This is a Record
I SUCK at blogging. I just can’t seem to get back into a blogging routine. I can’t even believe how long it’s been since I last updated.
It’s kinda like getting a little out of touch with a close friend, then more time goes by and the space feels enormous, then MORE time elapses and the idea of the phone call to reestablish touch seems overwhelming. You build it up as if you need to carve out an entire night, so you keep looking for the perfect opportunity, and in the meantime, even MORE time passes. You get the point.
So, I’m just going to write like normal and not feel like I have to go back and rehash everything I sucked at documenting the first time around.
My kids are challenging yet incredible, my life is full, my job is amazing but ridiculously demanding, and my husband is my rock. Our Christmas was fantastic – we spent it with Travis’ family and our dear friends Chris & Emily (and their girls, Nova and Juneau).
Writing letters to Santa the night before Christmas:
Jack got the goldfish he begged Santa for:
Fin got a freakin puppy in place of the coal she really deserved (a puppy who is Henny’s 1/2 brother):
And Shane has slept with his “light saver” ever since he tore the package open (of all his gifts, the cheapest, simplest one is always the winner with him).
And Griff was cute as cute could be, even in spite of being sick on Christmas Eve. He was in a bit of a daze with all the commotion Christmas morning:
This is Henny’s little brother, Fritz:
I love this picture of Heather:
Someone’s gonna have to teach this dog how to walk!
I’m about to pass out – GI bug been ripping up this place for ~2wks now and I’m TIRED from the lack of sleep. Hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and a happy New Year! I’ll write more later…
