I will always remember taking this picture.

Graham was first up from nap. Usually Cash wakes up first because he falls asleep first. Graham likes to lay there awhile and talk to himself about all kinds of things.

Anyway he was sitting there on the floor so peacefully so I got my camera and he actually sat there and looked right at me while I took photos. If you've ever seen him in action you know that he doesn't sit still for a minute, especially when there's a camera around because all he wants to do is get at the buttons. He even took his binky out when I asked him to. Maybe that's why he's looking so proud.

so proud

not only of her performance, which she did with great enthusiasm...or how she practiced it in the mirror every day.

Not only of how darling she looked in her outfit from her grandma.

But mostly of how well she adjusted to a new classroom after starting late in the year. And practicing for a Christmas program when she only goes two days a week where most kids go five. Her new preschool is totally different from her last one that focused on art and play. It's really structured, which is good for her, but it was a big change.

She was never intimidated by it. I wish I had that much confidence in my pinky finger.

Dear Aunt Dianne

Thank you for the diapers. The boys put them to good use.



When my mom came to town a couple weekends ago we went to Old town Sacramento and it was all kinds of fun.

Marlo got to see Santa and she talked his ear off. I still have to scan the picture and post it. Don't you hate it when they won't let you take your own photo? So Grinch-y!

my peeps

My BFF Molly came over with her man and her sweet Olivia this past weekend. Miss O reminds me of Marlo at that age. Doesn't Graham look giant in this photo? Olivia was smart to keep her eye on him...he can't be trusted.

Libby Dawn


Our niece was born yesterday! We've been waiting and waiting for her, but she almost didn't wait to get to the hospital! Dana woke up to contractions at 4:45 am and Libby was born at 5:54...and the hospital is twenty minutes away.

Marlo couldn't wait to see her (me neither, of course). So glad we could just get in the car and drive over. I love being closer to family :)


I know I'm a little behind. We spent Thanksgiving at Mark's grandma's. Everything was all decorated and his mom made the best meal.

Marlo sat at the table long before dinner was ready demanding stuffing. We need to work on the true meaning of the holiday a little more, I think...
