My Babies

Well, I was beginning to feel a bit left out not posting about my baby. And, since I don't have my own baby (and am quite okay with that at the moment) I thought I would post about the babies I call "mine".

First:















I proudly take credit for this look. Don't tell her
parents, though.























Second:




















Okay, how could you not love this face? My favorite thing about him right now is his lunging at my face with this smile. Heart it.




Third:
















I keep Aidan on Thursdays. She is so fun, and she always wins our squeal contests. She's my little Gerber baby.



Well, I feel better that I got a chance to brag on my babies.

Scrapbookin'? No more.

I missed a scrapbooking party tonight that I was looking forward to all week because I wasn't feeling so hot. I'm better now, don't worry. But, I was excited for the fellowship, of course, but more than that, I was excited to actually finish a scrapbook of a trip to New York that I started three years ago. I have lost the thunder. I really want to just get it done, but can't get motivated.
A couple years ago I discovered the scrapbook revolution that has whole-heartedly won me over. Picaboo is wonderful. I used it to make my wedding album, and two others since then. With digital photos becoming dominant it is the best way to go. I highly recommend it!

We're Home.

Back from our 2 wonderful weeks in the UK we come home to our new home!

I'm excited. Although, I would not recommend that anyone close on your first home 2 weeks before Christmas and leaving for a 2 week trip to Europe. Fun, but exhausing!

Happy 2008!

video


Lucas and I were able to spend the last part of 2007 and the beginning of 2008 in Edinburgh, Scotland at Hogmanay with our friends, Anna and Chris Perrey. It was one of the craziest things I have ever experienced, but loved it! I don't know that I would attempt losing my life like that again, but now I can say that I have moshed with the Scots, seen fireworks set off from a 10th century castle, been hugged and kissed joyfully by all Scots that crossed my path while being wished "Happy New Year!", had a deep fried Mars bar, witnessed traditional Scottish behaviour - fighting, cussing, kissing, and drinking, and getting lost (only for about an hour - at 1am) in downtown trying to find our bus home. It was great. Happy New Year!!!!!
