So here’s the lowdown…
My computer is about to bite the dust. We have incredibly slow internet event though its ridiculously overpriced. My Mac is so old that it won’t sync with my iPhone. These are all excuses as to why I haven’t been up to my blogging duties. I take most of my pictures on my iPhone these days and can’t stand to wait half an hour while seven pictures upload to Picasa. Plus, Patrick gripes when I spend more than 15 minutes at a time on the computer at home. Either way, I’m uploading pictures now and have lots of fun things to share. Maybe I’ll get to share them before my boys graduate from high school.

First up on the list: pictures of my cute kids

Every picture tells a story, so I figured there was really no reason for me to narrate. Happy St. Patty’s Day!

Wrapping Up 2011

Well, what can I say? I’ve gotten a little behind on my blogging. To my defense, we’ve been very busy around here! What’s happened in the last two months? Let’s catch up…

Poppa Joe, “Grandmother” Kelli and Aunt Anna Belle came for a Thanksgiving visit…

I started my new graphic design position at Children’s on December 5th. My new office is right down the hall from my old one, and I’ve been having way too much fun at work.

Eli also turned 2 months old on December 5th. At his 8 week check-up he was 22″ long, weighed 11 pounds & 13 ounces, and his head measured 15.25″. He was in 0-3 mos clothing and a size 1 diaper.

Alston had his first Christmas program at school (video to come)…
We went to see Santa…

These two boys spent lots of bonding time together over Christmas break…

We celebrated with family…
We waited on Santa…

And he finally came…
And left a really big surprise in the back yard…
We spent time with family…
And had a very merry holiday!
