And a few from Emily's wedding

A few from the holidays

Isaac as a sheep in the family Christmas play.

Me as the center, and the only one in focus, eating a delicious Christmas Eve shmorgasborg, or however you spell that.

A short-lived (for our family) family iceskating activity. Isaac wasn't a big fan of staying in the stroller.

Christmas Eve pjs!

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas! I'm kind of pictured out at the moment, so here's one from a while ago when Amy and I took Isaac and Livi to the train at the mall. Isaac was in heaven. I made the mistake of riding once with him which caused me a near puking incident. We're here for Christmas and so happy to be able to spend some time with both families. I'm sure I'll have more pictures to post after, but in the meantime, here's hoping you are healthy, happy and warm this season!

A sneak peak at my sister's bridal pics

Ryan, if you're looking at these, you're in big trouble.

Baby Cooper

Isaac was obsessed with his newest cousin, Cooper. This was our first time meeting this sweet baby and he's seven months old!! He's my oldest sister's fifth child, and he is so smiley! Isaac always wanted to know where the baby was, feed him his bottle and make sure he had his binki in his mouth. We're excited to hang out with the rest of Cooper's brothers and sister in just a week!

In San Francisco

Yep, this is the only picture I have from our day in San Francisco. Between getting a nasty cold, recovering from the stress of taking my brother's wedding pictures, bitterly cold weather, and dealing with a nap-less/constipated were the furthest thing from my mind. Though the wedding was fabulous and seeing family was even better, vacations are not what they used to be. Geoff and I (and I'm sure Isaac) were delighted to return home (though car seatless...thanks a lot Southwest Airlines!) and sleep in our own beds. One of the high points however, was drooling in a three story Forever 21 store.

Isaac's "gingerbread" house

Lunch group yesterday was also craft day. The kids especially enjoyed the candy aspect of building the house.Isaac was a pretty good helper though, and was definetly interested in the whole procedure. Thanks Amy for a delicious lunch and a fun activity!

The kitchen

Well well well, apparently people are bitter they haven't seen the kitchen yet accourding to the gingerbread men comments...Here it is. I can't get a very good picture of it as it isn't huge and so I can't get a shot of the whole thing. We also put in new drop lighting which I am loving. Guess you'll just have to come by for the full effect!

Here is my sweet sister Emily and I at her bridal shower. I am so excited for her and this new event in her life. I must admit I am a little upset about it though. She'll be moving to Philidelphia right after and I will miss her more than she will ever know. She's become one of my best friends over the years. Who would have thought that sisters who constantly fought growing up could become so close! I love you Emily and will miss you dearly, especially Isaac who worships you.

Making gingerbread men

Isaac and I made gingerbread men last week. He was very into it. I made the mistake of telling him that the cinnamon hearts were candy, and then it was over, he was shoving those things in his mouth. He's a very good helper in the kitchen.

The big reveal

A lucky game of speed scrabble gave me all the letters necessary to break the news to the family! I'm 3 months along, due on the 8th of June and very excited, especially since I am no longer driving the porcelain bus which had become my second job the last couple months.

Lovebirds at it again

Livi came over to hang out this morning while Amy was at her appointment. I think my son has a crush. He loves giving her kisses and holding her hand. Livi is a good sport and lets him have his least for a couple more years.

A delicious Thanksgiving in Vegas

We had such a great Thanksgiving thanks to Geoff's sister Whitney and family. We ate tons of food, played lots of games, and did a whole lot of shopping. Now that's my kind of holiday! Isaac even managed to sleep through the nights in the same room with us which was a Thanksgiving miracle in itself. Now we're back home and I'm missing having Geoff home to hang out with.

On the slide with cousin Hailey

Isaac loves his cousins! Hailey is such a good cousin and always made sure that Isaac had a buddy to play with.

Kickball: a new Thanksgiving tradition

We had a rousing game of kickball which everyone participated in, as you can see. Its was lots of fun, and the weather was fabulous. Apparently this is our new Thanksgiving tradition.
