Tried to take some pictures of the kids today

I had to use some help from photoshop. Addison whizzed on my blanket. I love them.

What do you do when your husband is out of town all month?

wear your pj's all day. listen to girlie music. wear his clothes. let the doggies sleep in the bed at night. (now the bed has essence of dog, nice.) let brighton leave his toys out. what's the point? he's just going to pull them out in the morning. talk to zoe and tallulah because there is no one else to talk to. make one really yummy meal and eat it for every meal until it runs out. i've eaten lasagne three times a day for the last three days. crank up the music and dance around the house with brighton and addison. miss him horribly.

Christmas 2008

This post is way overdue. I know. I'm a procrastinator. We spent this Christmas at a beach house on the Outer Banks with the Andrew clan. It was so much fun to be with everyone.

Brighton and Audrey loved riding on the ferry to Ocracoke Island.

I can't think of a better way to spend Christmas.

I have one word for all mothers: BUMBO

I just got Addison a Bumbo seat today alla craigslist. GENIUS. For all of you who do not know what a Bumbo is, it is a seat that enables babies to sit upright all by themselves. Within a minute of of being placed in the Bumbo seat, Addison was giggling for the first time. And a few minutes later Brighton had his little face pressed up close to Addison's face talking to her (have I mentioned that up to this point Brighton has not acknowledged her existance?) as if somehow now that she can sit up she is worth paying attention to. Later he even placed two of his little cars in each of her hands. The funniest part is the prideful look Addison has on her face the whole time she is sitting up in it.

Fifteen Wonderful Years

I am one of the luckiest guys in the world. Seriously. I have known my best friend, who just happens to be my wife, for half of my life!! Has it really been fifteen years since I joined my high school cross country team because some cute girl in my Biology class (who thought she was smarter than me) said she ran cross country? I didn't even like to run!! But I stuck it out...even joined the track team which is far worse than cross country (whose bright idea was it to run two miles around a little circle anyway?). And I'm glad I did. Not only did I learn to enjoy running (somewhat--as a last resort--like when all the tires on my 3 bikes are flat and I don't have a spare tube or patch kit), but I met my best friend, who actually is a lot smarter than me. Please enjoy a little nostalgia, the picture quality may not be the greatest (we even knew each other BEFORE the advent of digital!) but the memories are priceless to me.

From the cross country runs through the Tetons...

 the groovy high school dances.

I will ALWAYS love my best friend.
